I ate at Da Marco at Grand Gateway a few months ago and cannot forget the appalling experience. It was dinner time at around 7 pm and I order a lamb chop. I was rather hungry and attacked the vegetables quickly. After the first mouthful, I stopped as the food was cold! I could not believe it and touched the... More

My family and I went to eat there last night and the food was amazing! It's a very nice atmosphere and the service is ok/good. There were quite a lot of people but the food arrived pretty quickly, around 5-10 mins after ordering. The pizzas were soooo good, similar to the ones in Italy. Unlike American pizza, Neapolitan style pizza... More

Food and ingrediences are good, portions are rather too big than too small, compared to most italian restaurants I know in China it is reasonable priced, not cheap though, but good value for money. On weekends you need reservation or you end up in smoker area, which is not nice. The room / ambiente would appreciate some attention too.

I've been to this restaurant with colleagues from work after arriving from a 11 hours flight. It surprised me by the quality, the good price/quality ratio and by the good wine menu. I had lamb chops. They were not the best I have ever had, but were good. We had an Italian wine, rather good as well. I would recommend... More

Probably one of the best real Italian restaurants in Shanghai without a doubt. Quality Price wise it is by far among the best ranked, big portions in all their dishes with affordable prices. Their Pizzas are well cooked, providing excellent ingredients. My favorite lunch here would be: a beef carpaccio as a starter, and their salami and funghi pizza. Their... More

The restaurant has a bit of a commercial feel....laminated menus and such..like a restaurant you'd expect to find in a strip mall that was looking to franchise itself...nothing terribly offensive, just a little plastic feeling.....the service at lunch was disinterested and distant...but again nothing terribly offensive...Caesar salad was good, though drenched in oil that gave a slimy texture...bread was very...

Have been there twice now, and will say that not only is the Pizza, pasta and appetizers great it's also not expensive (70-90 rmb for main pasta and pizza), but the wine selection is good and cheap (Chinese standards). A place that will always be worth a visit with a group of friends.

Nice "authenticity" about the menu. The antipasto was extremely good. A busy place, in a busy city, but a nice change of pace after a week eating Chinese factory food!

We have been to Da Marco for many times. Best food and wine for the money paid. This is one of our most favourable Italian restaurant in the city. And personally we believe the one near Jiangsu Road is better than the one in Xujiahui in terms of price-quality ratio.

The restaurant was very busy the night we went. I went with a group of friends that have lived in Shanghai a long time. They said Da Marco is always good even over the years. A nice simple design inside, the food was delicious! A lot of hand made pasta, the beef carpaccio was huge and covered with lots of... More
