Goodfellas: mushroom risotto on the Bund

Goodfellas: mushroom risotto on the Bund

The ultimate seal of approval: Shanghai Italians all come here.

One of the best Italian tables in Shanghai is both friendly and chic. Italians rave about the variety and quality of the food here, as well as the choice of wines on the menu! Marco, the restaurant's Venetian maitre d', warmly welcomes guests, and the staff is tremendously attentive.

The walls are lined with black-and-white photos of Italian movie stars, and the room accommodates couples who wish to dine intimately as well as large groups who come here to feast together.

What does Marco suggest? Very crispy bruschetta, pasta with very fresh seafood, risotto with porcini mushrooms, and tiramisu. Everything is delicious. And, at the end of the meal, the restaurant offers a complimentary limoncello, just like in Italy. Book ahead because the restaurant's reasonable prices have made it a big hit in the Bund
