New kid on the Chaoyang Park block, Alio Olio is more than a convenientlylocated restaurant. With atmospheric lighting, a roaring pizza oven and a menu that includes all of the usual suspects at prices even Annie’s can’t match – this place ticks all the right boxes. A funky spiral staircaseseparates the well-lit first floor from the smokers on the second floor. Their thin-crust pizzas are a steal with prices starting from RMB 36 for a large margherita. Salads, soups, antipasti and mains are all served in generous portions, but we recommend the lamb chops (RMB 78) or the marinara spaghetti with a pizza bread top (RMB 52). To keep the kids amused and seated, the restaurant supplies highchairs, colored pens and a small selection of toys. If little mouths find the large portions a tad daunting, you can request smaller portion sizes (select dishes only).
