You get what you pay for

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.

Paid 700 RMB for 4 persons dinner which included 2 glasses of beer. (Positives) 1) Nice ambience inside the restaurant. 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...

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...
