Shortly before the Beijing Olympics in 2008, Mr. Renato Pegoraro, an Italian coming from Veneto's generations (region of northern Italy) and resident for many years in China, after the constant insistence of many local friends who love Italian style, he decided to create a small oasis of traditional Italian flavors by calling it the place Venezia Club Italian Restaurant & Winery located in the Italian Style Town and until today still is the only one restaurant in the city of Tianjin with the Italian owner.

“Darn good pasta”
Reviewed 2 March 2013

Had the Amatriciana, Carbonara and the Seafood Gnocchi. Portions are very small (hence he third dish), but the pastas were fantastic, especially the Gnocchi. I would highly recommend it. It was so good I'm still thinking about it.

Carbonara was served with fresh pasta (perfect) and the Amatriciana al dente (just the way I like it). Couldn't tell if the Amatriciana was real cured beef cheek (might have been some other cured meat, but still fantastic).

Was served by the manager, some chinese lady (Sophie?). Her service was way beyond par and she spoke good english.

The wines by the glass are 60kuai, but if you're eating here you know this place isn't cheap.

CONS: Bit expensive, but worth it. Mozzarella was not made that day but still tasted great. But can't think of anything else. My red wine was served a tad cold, but it was in the middle of Tianjin winter, so didn't think twice about it.

“Sometimes you're lucky”
Reviewed 3 February 2013

We had gone on a day trip to Tianjin just to wander around and see what we saw. We planned to end up the the Italian Town for dinner and just picked this place because it seemed nice. We were very lucky. It was a cold evening and the restaurant was a warm haven. The server spoke some english and ordering easy. There were three of us and we all thought the food was excellent. Not sure what else there is available here, but I would definitely recommend this if you are in the area.
