“Very Good Italian Style Pizza and Coffee Shop”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

This Cafe Espresso is located inside the Intercontinental Grand Seoul hotel and just steps away from the front lobby. The Cafe has a nice open ambiance, clean and rich-looking appearance with dark wood paneling that matches the hotel lobby area. We had ordered one of their pizza dishes and found it to be quite good. The Cafe Espresso has its own pizza ovens that are visible to the dining areas so that you watch as the pizzas go in for baking. The service by the waitress was both friendly and quick.

Since we were staying at the Intercontinental hotel, we found the Cafe Expresso a very convenient place to stop by for a good cup of coffee and/or an italian style meal.

“Authentic Italian food”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

Well, Italian restaurants score 50% for the quality of their olive oil and 50% for everything else. Especially in Asia it is difficult to find quality olive oil!. Now this restaurant seems to respect this since the oil quality was really great! Pasta was all well prepared, bread freshly backed. Many choices for Italian wines as well!
Would go back any time!
