The small, cosy restaurant could offer many italian dishes that we really enjoyed. Have had "italian" food in other places in China, that really not taste that good. This did!! The four of us tried both aspragus soup, caprese and ceasar salad as well as pizzas, meat dishes and the most wonderful chocolade fondante!!!
Menu in english was impressive and the owner spoke excellent english and the rest of the staff better than in many other places.
Will return here next time in Shanghai!!

After walking all over Shanghai looking for a decent meal that did not include chicken heads, pig intestines, and who knows what. I thought I would starve to death for the five days we were here on holiday. That is until we came across this charming Italian restaurant just a short walk from our hotel The Wesin Bund Center on Middle He Nan Rd. Huang Pu district. We enjoyed it so much we made it a dinner choice two of the five nights we were in Shanghai. Their pasta is home made and cooked perfectly aldente. Their lasagna was mouth watering delicious, as was their truffle stuffed ravioli. The pasta with ham and cream sauce and cheese was also delicious. My Partner enjoyed a wonderful Cesar salad. And I had en enjoyable caprise salad with delicious Buffalo mozzarella. Their bruschetta they offer at the beginning of the meal service was also very tasty with juicy and delicious ripe tomatoes. If you're having trouble finding a good meal in Shanghai other than sub par Chinese I suggest you give this place a try. They have a Sister restaurant called Venexia on Panyu Rd. which we did not go to, but if this place is like the other restaurant it's certainly a winner! If you walk out the front door of the Westin turn left and walk down the street almost to the intersection it will be on your left. The prices are a bit on the expensive side by Shanghai standards about 521.00RMB or the equivalent of $82.00US for two dinners but it is worth the splurge! After walking the city also treat yourself to a foot massage across the street and to the right of the hotel for about 30RMB or $4.76USD, totally worth it!!!
