Not far from the Hotel we were staying on business, is a selection of eateries that give you a welcome choice of cuisine. But when you have a picturesque outdoor area such as Florentina, it helps to make that choice for you.
You don't really expect fine Italian food in an area like this, but how you would be mistaken. Within 5 minutes of being seated, we encountered the new owner - Paolo. Originally from Tuscany, he proudly came over and explained some items that were not on the regular menu. Such as French Oysters. He sold them to us with his enthusiasm, and I am forever grateful he did. Being from Australia, we are well aware of world class oysters, however these were next level. Large, plump, not too salty and delicious.
I then went for his home made pasta, delicious and silky tagliatelle, with a couple of large prawns, scallops and a light tomato sauce. Absolutely wonderful texture, the only criticism (actually the only one for the entire evening) was it it could have a had a little fresh parsley to top it off.
The best part of the Paulo experience? He wanted to know what we thought. I mentioned to him my one critique and he was in total agreement. The best restaurateurs know when to talk and know when to listen. As it was a new business to him, even though he is well versed in building restaurants internationally, he was aware of small changes that often need to be made early on.
But that is about it. I couldn't fault the experience, and will definitely return on my next trip to Beijing.
An absolute pleasure and a highlight.

If you are looking for a quality dining experience at an affordable price then look no more. The starter dishes are large-enough to serve a group of four or more--we ordered a platter that included a variety of cold cuts--parma ham, salami,beef, cheeses, salads, and more .We also had a pizza with cheese and meat-very tasty. The menu selection is vast--we enjoyed a variety of pasta and seafood options including grilled fish; chicken; salmon and steak for our main courses. The wine selection was outstanding. The service provided was professional, timely and efficient to all our requests. The atmosphere is relaxing; clean and spacious; there are also private dining areas.

We stumbled across this restaurant after discovering that our original choice had permanently closed. Although this is an Italian restaurant, the very thick menu should provide a selection for every taste. The steak we ordered was prepared perfectly and the desserts were very good. This isn't an inexpensive restaurant, but not outrageous for what you get.
