“Good pizzas but terrible atmosphere”
Review of Italian Restaurant

Italian Restaurant
Ranked #559 of 1,504 Restaurants in Xiamen
Cuisines: Italian
Restaurant details
Reviewed 21 October 2012

This restaurant offers delicious and creative pizzas, there is plenty of choice, even if I found that prices are a bit expensive.
I have been a bit disappointed with the other courses as I never managed to eat at the same time as my friends.
The restaurant dining room is very dark, very old style and staff changes all the time. I recently went there for lunch and had to ask the waitress to turn the music down a couple of time as it was just too loud.
I would recommend this place only if you are a real pizza lover, you will not find better in Xiamen, but they should obviously do something as far as atmosphere and service is concerned.

Had a lot of Italian fair in different parts of China over the years, but this one is worth mentioning. Friendly, well English spoken service, good selection of food with picture menu, reasonable priced, superfast cooking, nice decor, Italian beer, fresh herbs used . . . you name it, only slight glitch was the non-avaibility of white wine by the glass . . but they opened a bottle for us and charged reasonable. Can only recommend and will go again when visiting Xiamen

Pizza man gone taste went down?
The decor and location are great, it use to be better managed.
Price is well within a good value for money, potty the chef left and now only local people are responsible for the cooking.

Sounds like a big boast, but at least in Shanghai, Suzhou and Shenzhen... this is the best pizza I've in China. And it's fantastic.

This restaurant is the best Italian I have had in China (Living in China since 2002). They have various branches in Beijing, Wenzhou, and Xiamen. Francesca the manager was great. This chain is owned by an Italian in Beijing, this is not 'Chinatalian" :-) Prices are fair, and quality is outstanding. My meal with a Salami Calzone, glass of wine, and free bruschetta was perfect. They have a real clay floor pizza oven. I will for sure go again and seek them out in other cities.
