“Great food, unusual setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Located inside an office building and not easy to find. The food was worth the effort. We had steak and pasta and salad, very good quality of food and wine. Service was good. Would go back

“Worth the search!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Not easy to find and up on the 11th floor. However, when you find it you will be pleased you made the effort. Lovely atmosphere created in a small space. Good service and a very acceptable Italian menu. It has the feel of a family run business but it does have five other restaurants scattered around China. Freshly prepared food and drinks at a reasonable price. Try it !

“average italian”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

After living in China for a few years it is nice to see what the "good" western food is like and this time I have to say it was average. Overall we had the option of going back and chose not too as it really was not that special. If you are on holiday and need a western hit then ok maybe but there are good places in the other western hotels like the sofitel.

“As good as they say!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

The food was excellent, the service was perfect and it was a great evening. It is a bit hard to find,but be persistent it is worth it. It is in the ICBC building and if you stay on the big Main Street and walk across the road then turn into an alley like area and go into the building part straight ahead, the elevators are there. Signage on the 11th floor is good. We had lasagna, spaghetti and penne and all were excellent. We did not have salad ,but it looked amazing. A great western treat!

“A must if you like western food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

We've been there 5 times and have never been disappointed by the quality of the food and the service. It is a bit tricky finding because it seems to be located in an office building, but it is worth the effort.
