We found this place on Trip Advisor looking for something different to Chinese after spending a few weeks in China. We all had pizzas and they were some of the best pizzas we have tried. We were advised they were the Roman style pizzas, so...More

A bit of a cab ride but a nice break for Western food. Food and service were very good and staff was particularly helpful in getting us a taxi back to our hotel.

About 18 months after successfully opening Eatalia La Dolce Vita, we gave birth to Eatalai Carpe Diem, a beautiful hidden gem located in the historic center of Beijing, adjacent to Houhai, Beihai Park and Jinshan Park. At Eatalia Carpe Diem, we have interlaced Chinese traditional architecture (hutong) with an Italian contemporary design while delivering Italian authentic food with the same passion. The restaurant has a wonderfu interior patio, a glass house on the second floor and an intimate rooftop. This magical venue is surrrounded by nut trees and pagodas in an environment full of culture and history.
