Bites of Italy satisfy in Beijing

Torta Caprese (China Daily/Fan Zhen)

Eatalia in Di'anmen is a fine place for intimate celebrations. From the time you enter, you feel welcome and relaxed, despite the fine-dining setting that includes mood lighting and crisp white tablecloths. A large bar at the front of the restaurant is a fine place to wait for the rest of your party to arrive whilst enjoying a glass wine.
Once seated, we let the menu distract us with its modern Italian offerings.

The caprese salad is well- presented, the mozzarella fresh and the basil fragrant, but the portion is too small for sharing - if you're looking to share more than a bite, a pizza would be a better entree choice.

The pizza is one of the best in Beijing, we all agreed. The crust is beautifully light and crispy, brushed with a tomato base that was beyond reproach, wonderfully fresh and seasoned. Both the salsiccia (sausage) and the margherita pizza disappeared rapidly from the plates they came in on.

If a soup course is something you are considering, then look no further than the broccoli and mushroom soup. This bowl provided a rich, creamy mouthful of mushroom-cheesy bliss, but left no trace of broccoli on the tongue.
