“Just fantastic food”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

I am surprised reading that the quality has changed since the new owner took over this place.
I visited this restaurant twice and food quality was very good as well as the service.
Very good pizza and pasta. I can also recommend the profiterolles !
Wines at reasonable prices as well.
Really worth visiting this place.

“I love the pizza and arugula salad”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Friendly owners, great pizza (the crust is perfect). The arugula and tomatoes are very fresh in the arugula salad. I have been here about ten times; they are always friendly, always good. Looking forward to warm weather so I can enjoy their rooftop patio.

“Waiting to see what the new owner will bring”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

this restaurant was one of the best in term of price, service and food quality level. Their beef carpaccio was the best in town. Besides, the fish dishes were according to the menu not like some of restaurant I know who offer tilapia for sea bass...The new owner is now running the place and starts to introduce French dishes. Unfortunately his cheese fondue was awful, far to be done correctly with the right cheese so it gets hard very fast and served in a bread bowl??? We need to try again and we hope he is correcting his bad start.

“Just average”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

This was probably the first few Italian restaurants in Suzhou - with Italian owner and chef - but the food is just average. Even the wine was nothing special you can buy better variety at Metro.
