Excellent Italian Food!

This restaurant has excellent food! Prepared by a chef from Milan, Italy, and managed by a Spanish owner. You feel the autheticity of the food with every bite. The pizza is fantastic! I will be back for more! Also try the Spanish tapas restaurant right next door. It is the same owner.

While the former Italian team in service and kitchen had some a little excessive style which may not have pleased everyone- food used to be great. Now this place goes the same way as so many other places in the last months in Shanghai : once the former team sees their visa not extended and /or their ownership put under... More

The chef walks around and talks to guests. Ask them what the fish special is and order it! If it's nice out, it has a great outdoor seating area.

I enjoyed Nolita quite a bit! The staff were fantastic, helping us with drinks and suggestions. The chef also came out to speak which was really special. Our group had outdoor seating and purchased from the set menu which included wine and prosecco plus 3-4 courses all for 250RMB! The courses were small but pretty good. I hoped for slightly... More

This place deserves success. The food they serve is delicious. I really enjoyed the frutti di mare risotto. Besides their wine selection is pretty good and at decent price. Their staff is also super friendly and professional. Frankly speaking the best Italian restaurant in shanghai.

I used to live in Top of City so Dagu Lu restaurants were my first choice. I still go to Nolita since their food has maintained over time a good quality. Not only pasta & pizza but also other food selections are worth a try. I will continue to come

This is my second visit here. The first was with a large group. Second was a solo. Everyone liked their food the first visit. Second visit, I just had caper se pizza at the bar. It was one of the better pizza I have had. The ambiance is also great. Interestingly, owner and general manager Nazzi was present. She's of... More

A very good Italian food , fair, fresh and high quality , but mainly for once in Shanghai I was impressed by the service: friendly , caring and professional , and if you have been living in Shanghai for a while do you know that is not so easy to find .
