Pizza, Pasta and Plenty of choice.
Here’s our comprehensive list of all the Italian restaurants in the City.
Casamosaico Italian Restaurant is a tradition but still a creative Italian kitchen. The upmarket Italian has moved to the Masters Building in Tongzilin. The large airy second-floor restaurant is dressed with white table cloths, tables marked with stemware and enough silverware for two courses. They work with premium ingredients. Their pastas, for instance, are made in-house with imported flour. They’re also serving imported cuts of meat like 388rmb Aussie T-bone for two.

Before located in iBox, relocated to Master building end of 2019 (in the space that was The Beer Nest II before).

The Isetan mall on Chunxi Road has a few spots for good and quick work week meals around the lower floor supermarket space. We like what they’ve got going so far, inlcuding newcomer Pasta Vera, the popup pasta restauarant that opened up near the escalator, with its enormous wheel of parmigiano-reggiano cheese and a selection of sauces over pasta. Their more permanent spot equipped with a forge-like pizza oven opened in late January and we dropped in soon after opening to check it out.

Pocket-sized bistro Gili’s Restaurant & Bar opened last year, on foodie hotspot Tongzilin South Road – but only had enough seats for a handful of people at a time. Due to demand, it has now taken over the premises next door, to make much more room for you enjoy this family-friendly bistro.

Forno Dello Zio
Forno Dello Zio’s is an artisan European restaurant run by the passionate Zoltan from Hungary. He makes authentic Italian pasta and Neapolitan style pizza. Main course, salads and sides are all available in the menu with some delicious soups.The pizzas made from his own sourdough starter. Normal pizza with ordinary yeast is much faster, but Uncle Z knows that quality takes time and slow fermentation is the key.
Forno Dello Zio’s also do authentic Italian pasta, salads, sandwiches and sides. He also has Hungarian dishes that are only available at his restaurant throughout the Southwest. The main course selection is quite refreshing as well. Did we mention he also got a full bakery?
