Question: if you ate pasta and anti-pasta, would you still be hunrgy?
Chef Pippo of the Portofino Restaurant Millennium Harbourview Xiamen
Portofino (Xiamen Millennium Harbourview Hotel)--#1 in Xiamen.

Xiamen has over 40 "Italian" restaurants but only a handful are authentic, and of those my favorite is the Millennium Harbourview Hotel Xiamen's  Portofino, which is the closest thing you'll find to Sicily this side of the Mediterranean!

The Maseratti parked in front of the Millennium belongs to the celebrated Chef Pippo (Giuseppe Messina), from Militello, Italy.  Chef Pippo, who has worked for several world-class restaurants since beginning his career in 1980, has been Executive Italian Chef at Portofino since 2001.  And his taste for luxury is as evident in his culinary creations as in his cars.

Chef Pippo's menu has an infinite selection--literally!  He will not only prepare the extensive selection of entrees and sauces in any combination you desire but will also whip up, on the spot, just about any dish you can think of.    At Portofino you'll never hear, "Sorry, not today.  Don't have it. That's Tuesday's special..."  On the contrary, every time we visit Portofino, Chef Pippo reminds us, "If there is anything you want special, tell me.  I'll make it!"

Whether you're planning a romantic evening for two, or a business meal, Portofino's pasta, pizza, steaks, and more are the ticket.  And Portofino prices are very reasonable, especially given the quality of the fare, and the ambience (Xiamen's first international hotel,the Millennium Harbourview Hotel Xiamen was our home away from home in early days, where we celebrated Thanksgiving and Christmas, and even today has a soft spot in our heart).  

Give Chef Pippo a visit.  And tell him that Bill Brown wants a ride in his Maseratti!

Tutto Bene (Tūběnyì Yìdàlì Cāntīng 突本意意大利餐厅) Americans Michael and Thierry opened this place opposite Marco Polo Hotel “so we’d have a decent place to eat.” Judging from their generous girth, the food is up to par!

My Pizza--Click Here! Chef Russo Gaetono’s unusual but eminently edible creations in-clude a “Mickey Mouse” pizza. I liked the eggplant pie (which isn’t a pie) and Sue enjoyed the wrapped sea bass (which was actually stuffed).
They have an outlet at METRO, but would not recommend it...(basically tastes like microwaved frozen entrees).

Manhattan Pizza (Mànhādùn Bǐsà 曼哈顿比萨) In 1991, a young lady from Xiamen started a pizza place in Copenhagen. (Had I been a Chinese in Scandi-navia I’d have opened a “Swede ‘n Sour” chain) This Danish Chinese-run Ital-ian pizza place was a big hit, and she returned to Xiàmén with her brother (who was in New York) to start Manhattan Pizza.
