With such a rich history, it's no surprise that Italy is a melting pot of culture, especially where cuisine is concerned. If you're looking for somewhere to satisfy your cravings for dim sum or all things noodle-y – and let's be honest, we've all had those cravings – you're in safe hands. We've rounded up some of best Chinese restaurants here in Italy that'll bring a taste of the East to your door.
Classic recipes and traditional cooking methods rule the roost at China Town – this is the place to go if you're a sucker for authenticity. It's hard to pick a favourite here, but we love the Spicy Beef Broth cooked up Szechuan-style. The rich, deep flavours in this one complement the texture of the meat perfectly – all that's missing is a side of egg-fried rice.

Famous for their precision, attention to detail and above all fabulous food, you can expect big things delivered to your door. Their beautifully-presented dim sum is not to be missed – a delight to behold and to eat, here you'll find subtle flavours of shrimp, pork and fresh vegetables bursting through in dumplings, soups and rolls.

Comfort food comes neatly wrapped in traditional take-out boxes by the chefs at Wok in Box. Try their famous Washington dish, where rice noodles are mixed with eggs, crunchy vegetables, juicy pork and soy sauce, and for something more fragrant, their Beijing dish combines jasmine rice with beef, cashew nuts, homemade curry sauce and coconut. If that's not floating your boat, you can create your own too.

From the more traditional rice balls, with sesame and peanut, to a green-tea infused tiramisu, if you like variety, this is the place for you.
