“Great pizza and salad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

We really enjoyed the Pumpkin soup, warm veggie salad (wife said it was possibly her favorite salad, ever), and the pizza (sorry, can't remember the name of it, but it had fresh tomatoes, basil and some pesto drizzle with a red sauce). The pizza came out nice and hot, right from the oven (the thin crust variety). Price was reasonable.

“Pizza in Shanghai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

This is one of two places in Shanghai I would consider tops for pizza. Prego in the Westin Hotel on the Bund is the other. Pizza Marzano is located in the Ritz Carlton Plaza. A bit pricey but if you have the urge for pizza its worth it. The pasta portions are on the small side but good as well. Because of its location near the Ritz it was easy to get a taxi afterwards. It is not New York pizza but for Shanghai you can't get any better.

“Great Pizza, Salad and Soup”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

It is maybe a little expensive but the interior is modern and clean and the service is good unless the outdoor space is open and they are very busy...which can happen easily in spring and autumn for lunch during the week. My favourites are the Trifolata, San Remo salad and wild mushroom soup with their bottomless ice tea. Before this branch opened I used to go to their Xintiandi branch and the taste etc. is consistent. I also appreciate that they pay special attention to little guests.

“Decent option”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

I was in China on business and unfortunately, I am not a huge fan of Chinese food so it is always difficult. I found this Italian pizza place while walking around downtown and dropped in for dinner. The selection and food was good, but not great. If I ate in this place while in Europe or the US I would consider it not very good. But in China, it provided me with a decent meal.

“Good service, good pizza and a good time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Been to two different restaurants (Portman Ritz and Xintiandi) and was treated well each time. Really appreciate the consistency and dependability of the menu...
