Seve is a lovely restaurant with very cosy atmosphere, it feels like you are dining in upscale Italian restaurant in Europe. What really impressed me were the ingredients they use, very fresh juicy and aromatic. Delicious food and excellent service! Generous portions!

I went there last week with a colleague and we had cold cuts, tortelli and pizza to share. At the arrival the welcome Prosecco glass was very much appreciated, and introduced me in a very simple but cozy atmosphere. Cold cuts were good and served with nice schiacciata (or white pizza = white bread made with the pizza dough). The... More

We visited this restaurant to celebrate birthday in Dec. The place was warm and cozy and we were promptly given a table. We had few vegetarian choices and the staff was reluctant to customise any to our needs. After we placed the order it took almost 40 minutes for the first dish to arrive ... We had better Eggplant Parmesan... More

Dear Sunil N, thanks to review Seve and I apologize for the inconvenience you mentioned . I fully understand and accept your opinion however I have to clarify and explain some of your point: first of all we don't have the classic "Eggplant Parmigiana" listed on our menu. We have one dish with eggplant but totally different from the one... More

The food is good and with good variety, well cooked and showed; the look of the room is too much anonymous, but located in a nice shopping area

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
