Sophisticated Italian food on top of St. Regis hotel in Pudong. Diners
have an excellent view on Lujiazui. While service and food are perfect,
the +15 % service charge and the far-off location are definitely a
It’s the only hotel that you have your own butler for your room. Make reservations for a table near the window.
Danieli’s is a fine and sophisticated Italian restaurant, although it
is quite far away from the going out area’s it was worth the 30 minute
trip. the food was excellent and the service personalised, as the St. Regis tradition. The view was
very good as well. It was named best Italian restaurant of Shanghai a
couple of times and it definitely deserves this status. The price is
not cheap but for 400-500 Rmb.

Italian food at good prices. Slightly hard to find, but once inside,
you feel like in a true Italian. It’s home style Italian food. You should book a table on weekends. !Out of all the Italian restaurants I have been to in Shanghai this is
easily the best. Their antipasti, main courses and desserts are good,
they have a thorough wine list, and the service is excellent. I highly
highly recommend Da Marco. The Marco the owner has actually been in Shanghai for more than 10 years.

The food I had at Casanova’s was so good. For me, a good restaurant is judged on it’s bread. The bread was excellent. Excellent,
would highly recommend. Excellent food, first class service,
fantastic atmosphere. The first floor has a bar/lounge. I think it’s a great cozy restaurant to take a first date. When I was seated, the first thing that came was a basket of bread.
I started with the
Carpaccio di Manzo con Rughetta, Parmigiano e paté di Tartufo nero
Thinly sliced raw beef tenderloin served with arugula salad, parmesan cheese andblack truffle paté
The carpaccio was excellent. It was paper thin and it was the right temperature.
The I had the soup
Zuppa di pesce alla Fanese
Fish and seafood chowder served with garlic croutons
The chowder was good, very good texture and great flavor.
The main course I chose was
alla Senape, Armagnac e Rosmarino
Fried Beef Tenderloin with Armagnac, Rosemary, French Mustard
Served with Mashed Potatoes and Grilled Vegetable
The tenderloin I ordered medium rare was just right. The flavor was very rich. The portion was just right.
my friend ordered a pizza
con Bufala e Acciughe
topped with Tomato sauce, Buffalo Milk Mozzarella and Anchovies
It was a very good pizza. It was very thin, just enough cheese and lots of anchovies. It’s definetly not NY style pizza.
