Like their pizza! Not easy to find a restaurant serving real buffalo mozzarela and decent pizza, but in Scena they aim to provide real stuff. Was a casual dinner, and the place is very welcoming. The T-Bone was a bit light to my taste, but portion was terrific! Service very friendly.

Great service, and (if the smog was less thick) a great view. Shame about the food.

We're hardly foodies, but even our palates could tell that salt was being rationed here. The (alleged) minestrone soup I ordered tasted of nothing. After adding my daily allowance of sodium (and some pepper) to my green 'vegetable' soup, which I never do I hasten to add it was still, lets say, bland. The waiter thankfully offered to change it, so I had the Beef Carpaccio which was fine.

I then had Carbonara Gnocci. Presentation class must have been missed as I could have dumped a spoon-load on a 15-inch plate better myself. This too was bland, my tongue searching out every salty morsel of bacon for relief.

I assure you, I don't have some tongue-damage which makes it impossible for me to taste salt. My partner's food suffered from the same lack of seasoning, and we ordered completely differently.

Such a shame really. It could be a great place. Service was great though!

Once again was visiting Scena, this time with friends, as I'm a big fan of Italian food, I didn't want to take any chances, so I came back....
Service was very good, I actually came with some food freaks, so everything was under magnifying glass... food and drinks were excellent, the staff always was around..
This was a very good way of ending my day with a good company, atmosphere and food.

I've been here some weeks ago for a business dinner arranged by my secretary...we didn't want to be so far away from the hotel so we decided to stay on Pudong side....
Prooved to be an excellent choice.
The menue was excellent and they have a more than decent wine list.
The service was outstanding and the recommendations of the very attentetive staff were exactly to the expectation.

I will defenetly come back.
