Small and cosy place. If you need a break from Chinese food, this is a good choice. We had a pizza however pasta looked also great. WiFi internet available and they played the Beatles :)

I really don't understand why this place is recommended both here and in the LP guide. My boyfriend and I had breakfast here one morning. There were few other people there too but the waiter/cook couldn't manage it at all. We had to wait 40 minutes just to get some fried eggs, toasts, some badly done bacon and some Chinese... More

I would much rather be giving a more favourable review of this restaurant; however I felt compelled to share my recent experience I had there. My friend and I decided to try the breakfast. After a very lengthy wait (we were the only people there at the time) my order of bacon, eggs, tomato, toast, and juice finally came out.... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this small cafe. Firstly, the pizza is wonderful. If you enjoy the thin based pizza with tasty toppings made freshly to order, then I think this is the place to go. If you want deep pan greasy pizza go somewhere else. With my friends, both Chinese and European, we ordered several pizzas and pasta dishes,... More

i went there with my girlfriend and we had a pasta and a chicken dish (filled chicken breast) which was great, the pasta was ok, service was friendly, there was only one guy in the kitchen, so a bit slow, but for good food i don't mind the wait, and its all moderately priced

It is easy to miss the restaurant "Little Italian". Inside there is a cozy ambiance. It’s supported by the excellent, originally from Guilin hostess Francis. She is not only an excellent manager; she can also professionally and competently provide information about traveling in China. The food is excellent, the pizza, for example, is done by hand. Even the wifi works... More

Beside the excellent food in the Little Italy restaurant, the atmosphere in restaurant is very pleasant. Thank you Francis for the nice evening and the very interesting conversation we had. If you enter in Little Italy you will encounter e different world in Guilin witch itself is very relaxed. If I would stay longer, my place to be would become... More
