1As the saying goes, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.” If you want to experience a taste of their lifestyle, then you should take a trip to Fiore di Zucca, which is located on Gaoxin Second Road next to Need Coffee. At first it may seem really unassuming from the outside, but inside it has a rustic charm. Better to be a grower than a shower, right? When you’re on a hot date or want to spend some quality time with your friends, this place would be a fantastic first choice. Not only will the environment make you feel at home, but also the authentic Italian food will make you want to scream out loud!

We started with the salmon salad and the seafood soup, both of which left a good impression on me. This was a great sign, since getting seafood in Xi’an can be a bit of a gamble and nobody wants experience a tummy thunder incident or food poisoning, so I’m happy that I can guarantee that at Fiore, things like this will never happen, so go nuts guys. Eat on! I picked steak as my main course, and guess what? It’s, like, mind-blowing. I have to admit, at first I thought that because this is an Italian restaurant that their main duty would be making decent pizza or lasagna. However, their steak totally blew me away; it’s tender, juicy and well cooked. So if you are a big fan of steak, come here. They know exactly what to do to meet your needs.

2One other thing I have to mention is dessert. Just because it’s an Italian restaurant doesn’t mean you have to get tiramisu. Quit being dull and dreary and try something different, even though I bet their tiramisu would make you go to heaven! Please try their chocolate lava cake. When the warm liquid chocolate syrup flows down and the rich chocolate cake melts on your tongue, you can smell and taste happiness.

After hearing all that, will you say no to this restaurant? Also if you are looking forward to having a BBQ party with your friends they have this cute tiny garden outside waiting for you. So next time when you’re bored with our local food, try Fiore di Zucca, it will not let you down!
