Nice restaurant with great rustic Italian ambiance. Great apps - the prosciutto is excellent and the cheese platter is to die for. High quality pasta cooked to perfectly Al Dente. Service wise a disaster probably just a bad day for the waitress.

Have just moved to Shanghai and this has become a local favourite. The food is fantastic (try the lasagna or the lamb skewer) - the service is very efficient and the atmosphere buzzing but equally relaxed. Have sat at the bar a few times just...More

This place is nice overall, atmosphere and food is quality and pleasant, on the pricey side for what it is. Recently while there we experience some unfortunate service when our change of 50 yuan was not returned. After a discussion we discovered one of the...More

Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly
governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French
Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that
