About
Mercato is a new coastal Italian restaurant from celebrated three Michelin star Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Three on the Bund. The gorgeous space created by Neri&Hu, bridges the organic and natural with elegance and emotive modernity. The experience begins from the moment guests enter Mercato's stylishly rustic surroundings. Reclaimed wood and warm leather tones serve as a gentle complement to the exposed steel, iron and glass to create an atmosphere that is polished yet warm and inviting. The design imparts a sensual feeling of comfort and lightness that redefines the idea of "farm chic". Mercato's decidedly simple and understated approach represents a refreshing addition to Shanghai's

Mercado is the best Italian restaurant in Shanghai! My fave was the truffle pizza with egg and set menu was delicious. It is expensive but worth it for a special occasion!

Went there with friends and was not disappointed, an interesting Menu selection, the ricotta and calamari salad were excellent. Interesting selection of pizzas. Dessert portion are large and good for sharing. Cocktails were somewhat disappointing with more ice than drink.

Firstly I need to be clear that this restaurant serves consistently good food. I just believe that it needs to re-learn some customer service and perhaps dare I say it humility. I do not like waiting for 30-40 mins in the bar for a confirmed...More

Never lets you down. Great Italian food. Pizzas are spot on and we also had the prawn and lobster ravioli. Can’t fault the service. Oh ... and the cocktails are sublime.
