...served by very attentive staff. We did enjoy one of the best pizzas we ate in China plus delicious appetizer with different sausages. Real European atmosphere, even live music at 8:00 p.m. startet. If you would like to skip Chinese food in Wuxi, this is perfect choice.

Love the Lasagne at Molto Benne. The Housewine is also a Treat. Very nice location - view of the Canal. Great for Date Nights!

Good Italian food.

Price a bit cheaper than the other Italian restaurant at 20 meters.

But feeling quantity are a bit smaller, even if good.

Easy if large group.

The Service in this restaurant was excellent and the food was good.
But there is only one toilette for the whole Restaurant and both genders!

From the reviews I had inflated expectations. Keep in mind I only came once for one pizza, a salad and bruschetta. I ordered a pizza recommended by the waiter. While it was fine, it was far from amongst the better pizzas I've had. The crust was doughy and soft, not crisp as one would expect from wood-fired. It was also too thick, so it was like chewing bread with pizza toppings. The toppings were also surprisingly spare, even for flat pizza style (vs Chicago style). I've had pizza in high-end Italian restaurants in at least 5 Chinese cities, and this was probably the weakest. Not bad at all, but not in the top tier. Given the other rave reviews, it's likely that the pizza chef just had a bad day.

The ruccula salad was very fresh--I was amazed that they got such fresh ruccula in China--so that speaks well of the restaurant's commitment to fresh produce. The dressing was very simple and so classic. That said, a bit too simple for my tastes. I would have preferred more flavor to the salad, but it does align with some of the more simple presentations I've had in Italy, so can't complain.

Bruschetta was tasty and fresh, served on top of bread that was toasted to the right level of crispness. Also was not drowned in olive oil as some places do it, so that the crispness of taste was maintained.

Net, a good Italian restaurant but my solitary experience would not justify 5 stars.
