“You won't get a better Italian treat than here!”
Review of Il Bel Paese

Il Bel Paese
Ranked #7 of 343 Restaurants in Zhongshan
Restaurant details
Reviewed 26 December 2015

This is the 2nd time we returned to Zhongshan. It was Xmas day and it was crystal clear that we would go to Il Bel Paese.
The restaurant is located just 2 mins walk from the Zhongshan Sheraton hotel.
The first time we got here we didn't know what to expect. Coming from Continental Europe I sometimes have the snobbish attitude that Italian food in Asia just doesn't get it right, which means fresh, simple but high-quality ingredients at a reasonable price and the genuine Italian ambiente. I was taught otherwise at Il Bel Paese.
Simone, with 20 years experience in Italian cuisine, and his wife Monica are running the place. The food is just the way I love it as described above. But the best thing about this place are Simone and Monica themselves: they will brighten up your evening with the warmest Italian humor and make you feel like family.
One goodie you should not miss: they have the world's best home-made ORANCELLO, which I love so much that Simone gave us a whole bottle for free as a Xmas gift, after he'd filled us up with 5-6 shots each on the house already!!!
Keep up this fabulous franchise Simone & Monica, we hope to see you again soon!
