It's now called Il Ponte, still same setup in the Hilton but don't know if under the same management. Very nice decor but there should be a reason why I've found the restaurant empty. Overpriced average quality food with a super expensive wine list with only two italian options (in an italian restaurant); at least good service if with the... More

I love my breakfast. I travel just to experience the breakfast buffet! the buffet here was nice..... but only nice. It was missing something. For such a large restaurant in such a fancy hotel, it needed more. Was very "meat and potato" like....

I was looking for an authentic risotto and this restaurant pretended to be an authentic Italian restaurant... Well I received a tiny portion of a bad cooked rice that they pretend to call risotto for 188¥ LOL !! Pizza was tasteless and tiramisu was fine but really far to be the best in Guangzhou !! It's really not worth the... More

I am from Hong Kong I spent a weekend in Guangzhou to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday and I picked this restaurant for the birthday dinner. I emailed the restaurant two weeks ahead and received swift and attentive reply. The manager saved me a private room and suggested a nice pre-set menu based on our preferences. When we got there we... More

When I sat down to do this review I was shocked to learn that this restaurant was ranked to highly. The food was good but hardly great. The seafood lasagna was expensive but the only seafood I could identify was the smoke salmon the chef placed on top. The taste was blah and totally uninspiring. My colleague said the same... More

Situated in a weird street, in the back corner of the hotel, this restaurant is discret and good... The Americano was good and strong, the wine list ok but strange not out of this world!!! The Pizza guy was good and the white pizza was good (truffle and mozza!). Carpaccio and tiger prawns also very tasty. La pasta to die... More

A treasure to find an authentic Italian restaurant in China. The manager David, could not have been nicer. He knows restaurants, people and wine. What a great combination. After eating there for almost ten nights in a row, I now consider him a friend. The assistant manager, Will , was also perfect. She remembered my food preferences (picky American) ,... More

Restaurant manager should learn to drop bookings and make sure that all tables booked are served on time with correct food ordered! Our first exprience was so so, but our last one in April was over the top of the bad memories. I am not giving them any more chances, sorry!
