Just went there for lunch yesterday. I have no idea what's up with the sudden influx of Italian restaurants (Casa Mosaico, A Boluza, Grappa's, new Peter Pan...) but this one is a welcome addition. I had absolutely no expectations going in except what a friend told me, "the bread is amazing".
When you come up the stairs, you're greeted by giant, curved brick pizza ovens. The dining room is spacious with lots of light and I think I'd like the decor a lot more if there were no Christmas decorations competing. Overall, it's modern and colorful: lots of mosaic tile (none to be found in the aforementioned Casa Mosaico; go figure) and plates on the walls, comfortable seating, dark woods.
We ordered a pizza Margherita and lasagne. Both were delicious and fresh, with the one small problem that the tomato sauce for both was a bit sour for my taste. Could probably use a few more hours simmering or more garlic, pinch of sugar, other spices, not sure.
The pizza doesn't have thick crust by any stretch, but it is pizza you can sink your teeth into. It had fresh mozzarella and basil on it; not too much, just enough. The small 11-inch pizza is plenty for two people if you order a salad or something else to share. They also have half-meter and whole meter (!) pizzas, long like a sub sandwich, not round, which sounded incredibly huge, hence our order of a small.
The generous portion of lasagne had pulled beef instead of ground beef as the menu stated, but it did not skimp on the ricotta, and the beef was tender and juicy, so although an unexpected texture, it was well worth splurging 60 kuai.
The 11-inch pizzas range from around 40 yuan to 80, I think, all under 100 and worth it. The larger pizzas are all quite pricey, but could probably feed a small army, so also reasonable.
The other items on the menu—antipasti, salads, soups, other pastas—if memory serves were all somewhere within the 20-something to just under 100 range. The mains were all over 100.
Since we were there for lunch, I didn't pay much attention to the wine list, but it looked extensive.
I asked about the 'amazing bread' and was delighted to be given a heaping plateful "to try". My friend was right, the bread is GREAT. You actually need teeth for this one and eating it is quite a noisy affair, woohoo! I introduced myself to the owner, who said he's from Napoli, and his business partner is from Tibet. No word on yak pizza yet, but I'm hoping...anyway, I told him that he should definitely sell the bread a la carte to take home, and was delighted when he showed up at our table moments later with an entire loaf on the house! We loved it today straight up with olive oil and dipping spices, but I'm sure it'd be good just about any way you slice it.
All in all, a very nice experience: taste! price! ambience! customer service! We'll definitely be back.
