Wonderful restaurant in Mandarine City / Shanghai. The night we went, the owner was there and spent a great deal of time telling interesting stories and helping us make menu decisions. In fact, we just let him surprise us with one after another delicious dishes. Highly recommend this place. Very close to Hilton Hongqiao.

Dined here on the night of the moon festival. Booked in advance for 7 p.m. and was surprised to note that, despite its apparent popularity, the restaurant was nearly empty when I arrived at 6:45 p.m. Was even more surprised to see a TV at the bar, which was on (volume muted though) and showing some vintage Tom & Jerry...

Our B&B #272 had dinner for 20 at Gennaro's in Gubei, Shanghai on 15 Aug 2014. Gennaro (the owner), Fabrizio (Sommelier), Patrizio (Chef) and Kevin (Service) did a great job in a original and creative way. This is not a formulaic restaurant but about as good as you can get in Shanghai. What sets the restaurant apart, especially for China,... More

Dear members of B&B #272, Thank you for your detailed review. Your dinner was very challenging, with 20 guests that all had high knowledge and experience in Italian food and wines. I am quite satisfied that we passed the test! Our job is to consistently provide quality with passion - only this combination can really satisfy the customers needs. Hope... More

Dear Customer, What can I say? Our biggest challenge is to compare our dishes to those of the "old country". You just came back from Italy and easily you can compare us to the true Italian food. I guess we passed the test. We thank you so much, willing to see you soon. Thank you. Gennaro More

Dined here twice in June with business colleagues and thoroughly enjoyed it. Gennaro, the owner is a genial gregarious character, the food is excellent as is the service. Well worth a visit if you want to eat excellent Italian in Shanghai.

Everything from the appetizers to the wine to the main courses was delicious! The service was excellent too! The owner was very personable and even walked us out after dinner. I highly recommend Gennaros for a romantic night out or for a business dinner. It will not disappoint.

I was brought to Gennaro for a business appreciation dinner. We were 16 guests and I must admit, from when we arrived in this clubhouse with this huge park my experience began. From the entrance you can perceive the typical Italian restaurant feeling. We entered and Gennaro was there, presenting himself and shaking our hands, one by one. The restaurant... More

There I got my best pizza in town. I'm sure also other food is great as they have an Italian chef. Restaurant is typical Italian style. This restaurant is also available in Sherpa's delivery service, so ordered there many times already. Just great food!

Dear Customer, Thank you for your review. For us the pizza is a must - the pizza is from Naples and my name "Gennaro" is a typical napoletano name!

I have been eating at Gennaro's for the past four years, and have found that recent changes have made a good experience even better. The menu is now more varied, with some wonderful additions, and the wine list far more impressive. The food has always been excellent, but a new chef and the presence of Gennaro himself makes this restaurant... More
