A delicious new Italian restaurant in northern Kunming

Delicious meal there today. Freshly-made marinara sauce topped pasta just hand cranked out of the Atlas. House salad with balsamic vinaigrette. Glass of top notch red wine. Warm ambience like being a guest in a friend's home. Recommended.

Well I hope the food is better than the Box I, because the stuff there sucks. These places are run by Germans and Italians? Then why do they not know how to make a friggin' sandwich? A sandwich is not: four paper thin slices of some sort of meat spread out on stale bread. No mayo. No mustard. No cheese. No lettuce. No tomato. No salt. No pepper. Yummy, and it costs you about 28 RMB, or almost 5 American dollars for something that would cost .25 cents in the US. In Seattle I often ate at a local German deli and there is no way the food here will taste like that.

And these reviews above sound sort of phony to me. Like staff or friends of the staff. People giving out the weekly discounts and lavishing more praise than you would read about some place in Manhattan. Beware. try it if you want, but I don't think I'll be wasting my time or money going to this joint since the term THE BOX is in the name, and that can only mean bad and expensive food in small portions.
