I didn't expect to find a real Italian restaurant here, I supposed to find typical restaurant for tourists or international businessmen in Xintiandi.
Instead I have to say it's very, very close to be a very good restaurant one can find in Milan.
Good service, very good meal, italian taste and probably ingredients, good fresh bread.
I do not appreciate too much the typical italian opera music in the background, but that's very personal.
A bit too expensive, more expensive than a restaurant in Milan of the same level, service, quality.
Anyhow a very good choice to italian in Xintiandi and probably in Shanghai.
