This restaurant is the place to go either if you are a nostalgic italian here in Shanghai or you want to try a real italian meal. The choice is wide, very traditional in a way but served in a modern way at the same time. The portions are more than fair and definitely worth the price. The atmosphere is nice and the staff is great, really kind and helpful with an "entertainer" italian chef that sometimes comes out from his reign to check the tables.Pasta and Risotto are just great and pizza is terrific, with specialties very difficult to find abroad. It may be not in the centre of the city, but if you are in Shanghai you should certainly take 10 minutes longer trip to get there and eat the best italian cousine you can find in the city.

Gennaro restaurant is one my last discovery of the many Italian restaurants in Shanghai, I have to say why they have kep it secret…………… it has been opened for 24 months and my wife and I just discover it! We have really enjoyed, the food and the friendly service, the overall experience has been wonderful, we will go back and bring some of my friends. Suggest making reservation for saturday evenings to avoid a long wait and best to book for sunday lunchtime too.
Excellent value for money.

Gennaro is in the Minhang area with in walking distance of the Hilton Hongqiao.

Menu offers a wide selection of well priced Italian dishes including meat, seafood, pastas, pizzas. A good wine list is all Italian. We found a very nice red for 249 RMB. Pizzas perfect for two.

Atmosphere is very comfortable and the wait staff is very accommodating. The owner and head chef (Italians) are both very friendly and go out of their way to be helpful. Portions are perfect size.

After reading all the reviews we thought we would give the place a try. Sadly, it all seemed bland and service was poor. Very large menu with small wine list. Scallopine with limone tasted like beef instead of veal and came with brown sauce instead of lemon butter sauce. They were out of the spring chicken special. Fettucine was bland with no cheese flavor, noodles were cooked well. All in all just bland.
