Do you like Italian food? So, what are you waiting for. At Da Marco you will get great food for the money in a nice environment. I have tried almost everything on the menu and have nothing to complain.

Good italian restaurant, maybe not the best I had in town. Good choice of starters, selected ingredients. First dishes not really impressive, meat much better. Rich wine selection.

I have been to Da Marco several times since my first time in 2008, the restaurant is well known among italian expats. Last time I went for dinner with some friends and we ordered a starter, pasta, meats and pizzas, all of them tasty and authentic Italian. The starter with assorted cold cuts was very good but portion not so... More

DaMarco is my favourite Italian Restaurant in Shanghai since many years. I eat with joy seafood, baby chicken and sallads and of course pizza. It feels like Italy but still down town Shanghai, Good for famililies. Wine is enjoyable and service is very good.

Authentic Italian specialities made by the same Chef for the last 15 years or so... That should be the end of the review as no more needs to be said :-) If you add a vast and perfectly selected list of Italian wines, good service and very good value for money, this is a place not to be missed! Always... More

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.
