I had lunch 2 days ago at Gennaro and all the dishes were just perfect, not even in Italy is easy to find such high quality at a reasonable price. Definitely recommended!

The only real Italian experience in China!
Gennaro is the real owner - great restaurant design, chef Roberto does his job and Fabrizio is really professional in his suggestions.
The food is really excellent - suggestion is - ask Roberto his chef's special!
Eight years in China and finally I found a small corner of Italy.
Will be back for sure!

Good beginning with a friendly welcome and a tasty little amuse bouche of bruschetta and foccacia. I asked to taste the wine by the glass, not only no problem, but also very tasty. One waiter gave us some input on the menu. Then they seemed to forget about us. The appetizers were tasty, no one came by to ask how they were, or to see if we wanted more wine. Pastas were good, but again, no one came by to see if we wanted more to see how we enjoyed the food. It was like they forgot about us, even though there were very few diners in sight on a Wednesday night. We wanted to try the Rosalia de basilico and a afterdinner drink of Havana Rum, neither of which were available. All in all, there was a slight air of the restaurant having seen better days.

I'm living in Shanghai since 2001 and I got experience about several italian restaurants, from the basic ones (Venexia or "da Marco") to the fancies (Cucina in Jin Mao Tower, the Kitchen by S.Cuomo, Casanova etc.etc.), but I have to admit it, in Gennaro the fusion between tradition and finest research of the ingredients, the taste of the "south italian sun" mixed with science of innovation it gives a wonderful flavor balance.
behind this upscale result there is great team of people that has in Roberto Bernasconi his pure rare diamond.
friendly atmosphere, very good quality of the food, nice wines selection, the possibility to ask to the Chef suggestions and to get always the right one, it makes this place and his Chef UNIQUE

I've been living in Shanghai for +10 years and this is so far the best italian restaurants if u r looking for absolutely authentic southern italian food.
The place is a bit far the normal tourist route (Gubei) but it's worth the taxi ride.
The Chef (Roberto) is by far one of the funniest chef I've met and seems that he knows what is doing in the kitchen with outstanding "signature" dish and generous portions.
