“used to be nice, but since Mario left.....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

This used to be a nice and original place run by Mario, oldish italian guy who owned and run the place; since he sold the place ... well well they are trying but is not the same.
Anyway probably still the best cheap pizza in shanghai.

“Nice and good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

Lovely place to go with friends or for business meeting. The staff is really nice and efficient. Long list of pasta and pizzas. Quite and cosy. Not really expensive. Nutella pizza...something to try!

“Great local Italian”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2012

Great local Italian with a good menu (you can even have Thai if you wish - the Italian restaurant is co-located with a Thai restaurant). Good, efficient and friendly service. Great pizzas and pastas. Only down side is that the toilet is of poor quality (no lock on the door and really dirty looking toilet brush) and the fact that the (very friendly) owner and his friends smoke a lot at their designated table which, for a non-smoker, is not at all pleasant.

“Lovely.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2012

Don't be fooled by it's appearance, as the food was excellent. The first thing that I would recommend would be the Margherita Pizza, it was delicious. Also, this creamy pasta (I forgot the name) was really good too. The price was a bit over, but totally worth it. All in all, one of the best places in Shanghai to eat Italian food.
