Ciro's Pomodoro has locations all over the world, including London, Dubai and Kuwait. The new Beijing outlet will doubtless become a late-night dining hotspot thanks to its location, but the fare is nothing to write home about.
Inside, there's a stage for live bands, tall booths for a more intimate dining experience, and a long bar extending along one side of the restaurant. But photos (hundreds of them) of owner Ciro Orsini with various celebrities hung throughout the restaurant are a little nauseating.
