If you are tired of Chinese and asiatic cuisine you must try this restaurant. The food was delicious and the service great! Try to book before so you dont take the risk of not having table. The price is ok and the location a bit difficult to find, its inside a building. Try the salmon with potatoes and mushroom, so... More

My wife and I went for pizza. It was so good. We had the margarita pizza and a few glasses of house red wine. Also tried the sautéed mushrooms as an appetizer and tiramisu for dessert. Everything was delicious. I highly recommend if you are tired of Chinese food and need a break, this place is just right. Only negative... More

This was a nice change and we wanted something other than Chinese food. Thanks to the reviews of TA members, we decided to try this place. It is not easy to find and as we discovered, there are many restaurants in China that are actually located inside office blocks. The taxi driver pointed in the direction of the restaurant but...

There's no need for me to write directions as other reviewers have already given them. The food is very good and the pasta was delicious. A bit disappointed with the pizza base as it was more like a thin pancake. One thing to note that hasn't been mentioned before. They close at 3pm and reopen at 5pm however, at 2:30... More

The Italian food here was really really surprisingly good. Xi'an is a pretty grey place with touches of Westernisation, and the usual chain shops, but you don't really expect anything amazing there. This restaurant was buried round the back of a grey block, up an elevator. But when you walk inside you immediately feel a sense of warmth from the... More

I agree with other reviews that it's tricky to find. Hint - it's between the ICBC bank and the fire station on the corner of Xihuaman and north street. Once you find it it's well worth the effort.

We were lucky concierge walked us there as previous readers said difficult to find- we ordered garlic bread, pasta & pizza. They were tasty and fresh- not the best but certainly good by Chinese standards. We had the house white wine from South Africa which was reasonably priced and tasted best had whilst in China. We all enjoyed the restaurant... More

It took us a little while to find as we tried the main entrance to the building with no luck so we had to go round the side where the entrance to the underground car park is to find the entrance. The food was very good - great bruschetta with very tasty tomatoes and very tasty pasta with arrabbiata sauce... More

Was al little bit difficult to find but once we came out of the elevator on the 11th floor and found the door to the restaurant we where surprises by the nice atmosphere. The food was good and the price was right. Don't expect the best Italian food but the oil and vinegar and details are good. We had nice... More

I've been coming to Xi'an for 2 months/year for about 6 years now. Colabo used to be one of the best restaurants in the city, but that was when there was little competition. The food and dining room are average (great for Western food in Xi'an). The service is friendly, but inflexible and lazy. At my last visit, my friend... More
