Dinner 21/10/2014 A good surprise in middle of the center of Shanghai; at 15 min from the Zhongskhan Park, this big restaurant offers a good variety of dishes; in the night we ate cannelloni with ragu, pizza with gorgonzola and sausage (very good flavour but the pizza crust was too soft far for being a perfect pizza). Desserts are enough... More

ATMOSPHERE: Nice and very well lit, which I appreciate in China more than other places in the world. It also was a little louder than what I generally find at a stereotypical Italian restaurant but no complaints. FOOD: Menu is VERY big, so you should be able to find something that you like. The actual portions are correct, but as... More

This Italian restaurant, the original one of Da Marco in Shanghai, is the best one of the group. Have met the owner there more than 8 years ago and hence, I'm always treated extremely well. I like their food and wines. All reasonably priced, but not cheap. Seafood Linguini is my preferred main course. Suggest you share a starter and... More

Seemed that no one understood what common Italian food was, but all understood sea food. Difficult to get rea Italian food from a Chinese eatery.

If you're craving abit of Italian this isn't a bad place to go. Don't take visiting friends though because you'll never know when you get a slightly expired king prawn or an under par pasta dish...

A lot will depend upon which restaurant you go to. Most seem to be ok, if a little expensive for what they offer. One in particular is not that great at all, and the service is very Chinese. This makes it far too expensive and not worth the money.

i am Italian and I live in China since 2004. Back in the days, we went several times at Da Marco. Now the place has gone down. Last time i went there with my wife kid and and some friends. I ordered a Fiorentina beefsteak (perhaps the most expensive item on the list) After waiting for a long time, (the... More

Another recommended restaurant. We had the no.10 pizza and Seafood risotto. The pizza was good, average but very tasty. The risotto was delicious but it takes some work removing all of the seafood from the shells. It was worth it.

I returned to Marco after some years. It is still as good as I remebered. Real Italian food, good environment, friendly service... one of my preferred choices when I am in Shanghai.
