Luna

Top choice italian in Li River

This fine rooftop restaurant experience is one of Yángshuò's best. The view of Moon Hill isn't quite as amazing as it used to be – thanks to a neighbour building a stack opposite – but it's still sublime. And the food remains top-notch: the taglioni con gamberi e melanzana (tagliolini with shrimp and eggplant) is lovely, but the whole menu's a winner. Romantic, delightful, highly appetising.

The pizza is fantastic too, and there's a good choice of vegetarian dishes. The attached Yangshuo Village Inn has delectable rooms too, if you need somewhere to kip after your fill. It's not easy to find, in a village called Li Village (历村; Lì Cūn), before you reach Gāotián Town.

Minibuses (¥2) run from Yángshuò to Gāotián. Before Gāotián, disembark at Li Village and it's a five-minute walk to the restaurant. A taxi one way from Yángshuò will cost around ¥30. If cycling to Moon Hill, the restaurant is a short ride away.
