Oldie but Goodie is a monthly column where we feature noteworthy restaurants, cafes or bars that have been open at least six months and are worth a try.

In China, a long line outside a restaurant means different things to different people. Some will avoid the establishment like the bubonic plague while others will flock towards the sea of people, immersing themselves in the latest F&B trend.

Bello Pizzeria, located a short walk from Datang Metro Station in Haizhu, attracts quite the crowd with their masterfully handcrafted pies. Set on Xinjiao Zhong Lu, this pizza shop is reliably packed during operating hours, with a line out the door and Bello’s three to six tables always taken (when we’ve visited, anyway). Regardless, don’t be deterred by the line. What their staff lacks in numbers, they more than make up for with fast service and hard work – getting your pizza to you hot and fresh every time.

The pizzeria has a limited but quality menu (do what you do best and no more, could be the Bello mantra), featuring the timeless margherita, mushroom lovers quattro funghi and red-hot diavola. The price tag ranges a little depending on your pie selection, but you can expect to pay between RMB38-68 for Bello’s 6-inch, 10-inch and 12-inch pizzas.

Suds also come reasonably priced, with locally brewed Strand beer (RMB25) and popular Belgian import Leffe (RMB35) available to wash down your cheesy flatbread.

So, the next time you’re jonesing for a quality pie with savory ingredients, grab a friend and go to Bello. We promise you won’t regret it.
