4 Fang Zhuan Chang Hu Tong
Cozy Italian Near HouhaiThis intimate restaurant in a rapidly gentrifying area of the hutongs features a small menu of rustic Italian fare. Quality is high, though portions are small. It's a favorite for expat Europeans and white-collar Chinese couples, as the dim lighting evokes a romantic atmosphere. We also think its popularity is explained partially by the fact that the wine list is longer than the actual menu.
