Piece of Italy in a middle of huge Shanghai

One of the best Italian restaurants in Shanghai. If you are tired from Chinese food welcome to restaurant Da Marco. Good quality of Italian cousins, friendly staff, not expansive... Only one thing I didn't like - the wine was warm

Renowned Italian restaurant with traditional dishes and wines. Very good value for price (considering Shanghai). Not a suggestive location and not romantic atmosphere. Many Italians like me come here when we miss our food!

Da Marco has a big menu and therefore I recommend a generic approach. For meat lovers the 'fileto', for those who like fish the mixed fish grill, among the Pizzas the Pizza Salmone and definitely the Seafood Risotto. All of it is delicious.

It used to be one of the most famous italian restaurants in Shanghai, where all Italian people used to gather, to eat good and real italian food. It had worsened in the years, and now… wow… forget and stay away… Terrible pizza, I had ordered pizza bianca with mozzarella and rucola. The mozzarella was the lowest possible quality , the... More

If you are western and you need a psychological and gastronomical escape of china go to Da Marco! Great pasta and pizza, very generous portions, I recommend the dish of the day. Simple, you get what you pay for! ;)

Here you can find one of the beat italians in Shanghai. The Spaguetti Frutti Di Mari are superb. As well all rissoto. Prices are fair and environment very enjoyable. I came here first time in 2006, and is still a great place. Unfortunately you cannot see the owner everyday as before.

Seems like a gorgeous place at a glance. 2) OK service for a restaurant in Shanghai but not as quick as a foreigner might expect. 3) The overall prensentation of Risotto funghi was impressive although the rice could/must be much...

Staying in Zhongshan Park

Neighborhood Profile
Zhongshan Park
The residential and commercial areas around the beautiful grounds of Zhongshan Park have never been considered particularly fashionable by a majority of Shanghai’s foreign residents, but plenty of expats do choose to live here. The park itself is a huge draw, providing a pocket of serenity in the middle of the metropolis. The area has its share of trendy shops with wares that can’t be found elsewhere, delicious restaurants with food ranging from fancy to affordable, and great hidden bars. Rents are also cheaper here than in other neighborhoods with the same conveniences. Aside from the obvious attractions, with its neighborhood fix-anything shops and pop-up street stalls that sell anything you need, you’ll never sacrifice Western comforts.
