We had a very nice dinner at this place. They have a good wine selection from ¥290 (U$40). They have many pasta types, from £60 (U$9). It is a nice place with goof service.

I dined here tonight Nov 16, 2016 with a friend. The decor is cute, however that was the best thing. The food took a long time to come although there were only 3 other tables. We waited a little over 1/2 hour for appetizers and the same for entrées. The food was pretty bland and the portion sizes extremely small.... More

After one month of traveling through China this was by far the best we have eaten!!!! Owners are from Italia so they know how to make a real pizza! Pizza and tiramisu we ordered were really delicious!! Remember this place because you want to come back!!

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.

Description
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.
