“Owner's changed”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

New owners took over and from the New Year (Chinese), they will convert it to a French restaurant. They have already introduced some French specials, such as fondue and onion soup. The fondue was not good... served in a bowl made of bread, and so the cheese quickly got hard and congealed. The pasta dishes we had (3-cheese ravioli and penne arrabbiata) were quite good, and the service was impeccable. The tiramisu was the best I've ever had!

“great food and price value”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

nice little italian restaurant in the heart of the nightlife street shi quan jie.
from my opinion the best carpaccio and pizza in town.
fairly priced, friendly and good service are making this place to one of my favourites in suzhou.
if you want to get a decent italian style pizza or other italian style food then thats the place to go to.
always again :-)

“Great authentic Italian food”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

I love the cozy and grown-up atmosphere of this restaurant. The food and service is just great and the menu being in English, Chinese and Italian is a pleasant surprise.
The menu is extensive offereing everything from a set menu speicals, to dinner set value menu and an À la carte menu which includes Italian favourites such as, Insalata Caprese, lasagna, risotto, and pasta cooked just the way I like it. There have a good dessert menu but I am always disappointed with desserts in china (crème brûlée and tiramisu are all there).
They have a comprehensive wine menu and its great that they serve san pellegrino water (always a treat when in China). The prices are very reasonable and will keep you coming back for more.

“It's italian food”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

The food is as authentic as you can find in China. It's in a nice location. The price is pretty average for Italian restaurants in China. 68 rmb for a pizza our pasta dish.
They have a very large selection though. Thru even have mozzarella di bufala! I didn't try it, but they have it.
Worth it if you're really in the mood for Italian.

“Best service, and some of the best Italian food in Suzhou”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

I have visited this restaurant at least a dozen times and the service and food is always good.
The pizza is very good and the salads are delicious.
Probably the best service that I have experienced at any restaurant in China.
