“Consistent food, very crowded”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I have ate at this location twice and the other location near the Portman one time. We have enjoyed our food and the wine. The servers are attentive once you get their attention (as is the case in China.) This is definitely not a romantic place to eat - the tables are packed in the space and it can be hard to move around.

“Authentic Italian fayre”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

An interesting find, tucked away in a backstreet. We ate on a Tuesday night and the place was packed. Very good food - I had a delicious lasagne. One arrogant waiter, but apart from that it was good. Would give it a second visit.

“OK Italian for a lot of dough”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

This is a little Italian bistro located down a small alley off Changle Lu. The outdoor garden seating is delightful and the staff even pulls off a little bit of an Italian accent. That said, the entrees are just OK - not great. The pizza is the best value and quality on the menu. However, there a many other options for good Italian at the same price.
