Let's be honest. This place is great. You use to eat your fast food and totally forgot that you need a lot of time to prepear nice meal, not f*** frozen burger. Here you can choose bunch of dishes, if u want pizza, please, salad, pasta, desserts, also burgers. We've never tried pasta there, but you don't go in the restaurant to eat the dish, which you can make at home, but lasagna was the best in Kunming. Pizza is amazing, we tried different kinds and every time it's fresh, juicy, hot. Chicken salad is so big that after you don't want anything else. Price might be higher that on other restaurants, but here u pay for quality and great atmosphere. Don't compare Chinese-Italian restaurants Chinese noodles with Italian restaurant, where the owner is Italian, where ingredients are Italian, where wine is Italian. If u still don't understand what I'm talking about, visit cabana or papa Johns, in cabana u can try cheaper pasta and in papa u can try expensive pizza.

This is the only autentic Italian restaurant in Kunming.


Really good pizza and steaks. The wine machine fuddles me when I'm a bit fuddled, & seems unnecessary. Good folks on both sides of the bar.


I have been here several times over the last two years. High quality, authentic Italian taste. Portions could be bigger, but prices are fair, considering they use imported ingredients. I definitely recommend pizzas, desserts, lamb and steaks.


Been here several times lately and every time I've enjoyed my meal. Don't know why some others have said it was pricey, the price has always seemed fair to me :)


Went here and got the nine inch "large" pizza. Wasn't cheap. What little bit of cheese there on it was in clumps and parts were still cold. What his the aversion pizza places here to actually using spices and ingredients? It was totally bland and tasteless. I would also say it was more like a 7 1/2 inch pizza as the crust area was an inch or more. What a rip off. Will never go back.
