Had a pre Christmas dinner with my friend. Heard a lot about this place but never been there before. Ambiance is nice and up to most of places on the Bund. Service is a little bit pretentious. Not sure for what are you there. Either serve them or listen their lectures. Food is a different story. As much as they... More

A nice change to the taste buds after a lot of Chinese food!:-) We had the calamari, lobster&prawn ravioli and pizza, all lovely. But best was maybe the Chardonnay and the Valpolicella wine!👌🏼 Got a table with great views! Very nice service as well!

Tried one with cheeses and ham, cheese taste like it is freshly made and ham is European, dough and big pizza wood burning oven closing perfection circle. If I really had to pick rocket taste better in Italy but it is... More

Love the menu selection. We shared lots of starters, my favorite is the raw sections, fresh quality seafood with super mouth watering dressing. the elegant portion is perfect for girls... More

Dined here with 3 colleagues from the local office and it was a very good night. We had some drinks at the bar before sitting down and sharing large plates of fresh snapper, beef and duck. The fabulous meal was accompanied by a bottle of Brown Brothers Patricia Shiraz which we took along and they gladly opened. The staff were... More

There is a bar where you could have a drink at first and also smoke, that was very unexpected but... More

Mercato lived up to all the great reviews we have been given by friends. The food was delicious, the service was excellent, and the ambiance was delightful. My husband and I sampled a crudo, two apps, a pizza, a pasta, and two desserts. We were so full we practically rolled out of the place. I had the ginger pear mocktail,... More

Who knew. Shanghai is now home to a world class pizza restaurant in the shape of Mercato on the Bund. The truffle pizza was our top pick but the sausage and kale pizza ran it close. They also seem to understand how to make good dessert and coffee.

Mercato is an already well respected and highly reviewed restaurant on The Bund. You expect high end Italian food expertly prepared. So I drop by at opening time, when the pizza oven is at its optimal performance and the pizza guy has time to pay attention to your pie. I ordered the prosciutto pizza with arugula ... no pizza sauce.... 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.
