Located near the pearl tower, it's hidden in the park overlooking the river. The glass building makes for great views of the Bund. This was a business lunch so we went with the set menu. There are three choices - one includes the additional pizza/pasta dish and the other a desert. The salad starter was good as was the grilled... More

Had a great meal here a few years ago and was anxious to return and see if it was still great. Since I was alone I sat at the bar, enjoyed a couple of beers, the young entertainers playing guitar and singing and the pizza chef slinging pies in and out of the oven. The beer battered shrimp, calamari &... More

After visiting The Kitchen Salvatore, I'm disappointed that it took us so long to find this restaurant. The local listings (SmartShanghai, TimeOut, CityWeekend) certainly don't give this place the credit it deserves. The space is modern, and the service impeccable. Great views throughout the restaurant of the open kitchen and Bund. Starters, mains, and deserts all came out efficiently, and... More

Great Italian food restaurant with consistently high quality food. Have been coming there for years and the reason for the repeat visits is that I have never been disappointed. Wood fire cooked pizza. Pasta excellent. A winner consistently .

It was a nice break from Chinese food but I didn't feel this restaurant lived up to all the great reviews. Well, it was good but it wasn't extraordinary. Lovely service and welcome from Donna and the staff were very competent and spoke excellent English. Parma ham with melon and buffala mozerella didn't actually come with the mozerella - we... More

The outdoor dining deck is certainly a plus, especially considering the beautiful view over the Bund. We also liked the open kitchen inside the restaurant. Service is warm, good and attentive. Quality of the dishes is good, but I would say average if compared to other Italian restaurants in Shanghai. Prices are much higher than average, but I guess you... More

We came with a friend and was treated by a warm and chatty atmosphere, a beautiful restaurant bustling with people. We sat down and ordered the food while looking out the window, directly facing the Shanghai TV Tower looming over us, its lights flashing in the night. I ordered beef carpaccio with truffle sauce as an appetiser and it was... More

The lunch menu is price-fix and a little expensive, but the food, service and setting are excellent.

What a pleasure to once again confirm the superb quality of the restaurant The Kitchen, among the best Italian restaurants I've ever tried around the world. Excellent pasta, pizza wonderful, unforgettable desserts. Added to this is the excellent wine list, the location and the kindness and professionalism of the staff. A special thanks to Rosalba, a welcome beauty and sympathy.... More
