Great food and vibe. Pricing is relatively high, especially the wine. Excellent tuna tartar and specialty pizzas.

I've been here a number of times over the years but the fine service and food that it once had has now been eclipsed by other nearby venues to the point that in my view they cannot justify the price. The food was standard and the service was poor and we left after the main given that the dessert and... More

Visited Mercato for a date night while in Shanghai and couldn't have been more impressed. Great ambience - dim lighting for a romantic feel yet open and vibrant for people watching. Service was super friendly and attentive. And last but of course not least, the Italian fare was on point. Highly recommend if planning a trip to Shanghai!

The service here is impeccable and somewhat westernised in an otherwise very different Chinese-style service that I became accustomed to whilst in Shanghai. The atmosphere is lovely, with perfect lighting, good music and great views across the Bund and the Pudong skyline. The food was very nice, although I think overpriced for the quality and the quantity. The wine is... More

I ordered the black Yunnan truffle pizza with cheese and egg - the pizza arrived smothered with the most delicious truffle paste and a warm thick runny egg. It was so delicious. The polenta and the caramel sundae were very good too. All that with a mesmerizing view.

Very nice restaurant, the way it is decorated is just relaxing and design. The waiters were polite and knew what they were doing. We had the tagliatelle with black truffle and the Tuna tartar which were very fresh and delicious! I definitely recommend these dishes and this place to anyone looking for good food, good service in a great atmosphere... More

The general experience is not bad, specially for the design of the architects Neri & Hu, but the food is litterally not Italian and this is NOT an Italian place. If you search a fancy french restaurant on the Bund, probably you are in the right place.

Had dinner here on a recent business trip to Shanghai. Really enjoyed it. Just had a simple pasta and a salad and glass of wine. All really good. Service is good and the restaurant is very attractive. Nice Italian food. Very enjoyable.

I was very impressed with the food in shanghai in general. But was sceptical when our hotel concierge recommended this place for some reason. I was keen to go to another Italian place I had researched. But the concierge suggested we go here. We spent an hour at the bar enjoying wines from a nice selection of "by the glass"... More

Description
Mercato is a new coastal Italian restaurant from celebrated three Michelin star Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Three on the Bund.

The gorgeous space created by Neri&Hu, bridges the organic and natural with elegance and emotive modernity. The experience begins from the moment guests enter Mercato's stylishly rustic surroundings. Reclaimed wood and warm leather tones serve as a gentle complement to the exposed steel, iron and glass to create an atmosphere that is polished yet warm and inviting. The design imparts a sensual feeling of comfort and lightness that redefines the idea of "farm chic".

Mercato's decidedly simple and understated approach represents a refreshing addition to Shanghai's dining scene. The relaxed sophistication, addictive cuisine, and friendly, thoroughly unpretentious service paints a picture of Italian life as it should be experienced in its purest form.

Staying in The Bund

Neighbourhood Profile
The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai International Settlement run by the British and Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has endured over time and is now found in the five-star hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
