A casual, cozy, and tremendously welcoming Italian bistro tucked among the nightspots at the west gate of Chaoyang Gongyuan, Annie's is the hands-down favorite for affordable Italian fare in Beijing. Wood-fired pizzas are the most popular item, but try baked gnocchi gratinate with tomato and broccoli, or the chicken ravioli served with spinach and a fine tomato cream sauce. Appetizers and desserts are just average, the notable exception being the cannoli, a sinful blend of ricotta cheese and dried fruit with a touch of brandy in a fresh shell of fried dough. Annie's staff is bend-over-backward friendly, happy to bring as many baskets of free bread (served with small jars of pesto) as you want.
