We have lived in Shanghai for over a year now and have searched for a great authentic Italian restaurant. I found Nene's on Trip Advisor and the ratings are true and accurate. If you are looking for an authentic Italian restaurant, it is worth going. We had a salad, lasagne and a calzone. The pizzas were coming out of the kitchen like crazy and they looked amazing. The service was exceptional. This restaurant is very small so I would advise to make reservations before going so you aren't disappointed!

Nené is not simply a restaurant. It is a heaven of taste, ambiance, and service in the heart of Shanghai. Located in one of the most famous streets for entertainment in the French Concession, Nené welcomes customers in a chic space where everything, from lighting to furniture, from décor to music, preludes to the perfect dining experience. Waiters are wonderfully attentive without ever intruding, and meals enfold as smooth as the gorgeous Southern Italian wine that the restaurant keeps in its impressive cellar.
However, what impresses the most about Nene is food: Italian and Mediterranean dishes are prepared with the best ingredients and an exquisite touch as well as a perfect sense of quantity. Try especially the seafood pasta with fresh mussels, or indulge in the perfectly baked pizzas: everything is a feast for the palate. I’ve been coming to this restaurant since my first visit to Shanghai in 2011 and I still haven’t found any better place in the city. I strongly recommend it.

I visited Nene for lunch on a Sunday. A small, casual and cosy restaurant. They had a Sunday Brunch Menu for about RMB200/head which comprises mainly egg and toast items for main. We did not opt for the brunch menu as we like to try some of their house specialties like pizza and pasta. They have an extensive drink list and a la carte menu complete with starters, pizza, pasta, main and desert. Price is really on the high side averaging RMB150 for pizza and pasta. When I was there, 80% of the patrons were Italian families so its strong confirmation that the food is authentic Italian. We had a 4 cheese pizza and a sausage caserecce - both were perfectly done and prepared with top grade ingredients. The food and location score As. What needs improvement badly is the service staff whom are inexperience and did not understand the menu. The Italian owner is usually around so check with the owner if need recommendation or explanation of the menu.
