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.

One of the first things we notice on walking into Bucciano, are the large slabs of salt and herb covered pork belly curing in a chiller. Their in-house charcuterie also includes a few types of fresh sausage that we enjoyed during the dinner. This attention to craft is on display via their antipasto board, which is a great way to start off a meal. It included salami, proscuitto crudo and mortadella, which impressed with their quality and were sided with mushroom and tomato bruschetta and some very interesting fresh Tuscan style fritters that the server instructed us to eat with the proscuitto. The housemade ciabatta and flat bread tasted very authentic and were very good with their house olive oil and vinegar.
Other Tuscan specialities on the menu make Bucciano one of the few Italian restaurants in town where we can feel a sense of regionality.

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.

Uncle Z’s is an artisan sourdough pizza company, run by the passionate Zoltan from Hungary. He delivers freshly made, delicious Italian pasta, salads and sides with pizzas made from his own sourdough starter. Normal pizza with ordinary yeast is much faster, but Uncle Z knows that quality takes time. You can drop by and enjoy pizza at the 4 seats at the bar, or collect, or have it delivery.
Uncle Zs also do authentic Italian pasta, salads, and sides. Sides include fried wings, nuggets, popcorn chicken, tempura shrimp. If you really want to treat yourself, try the loaded fries; bolognese, cheese sauce and bacon, or shrimp.
