“Great food. Good Service bit expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

Went to Nene with a friend. I made reservation in advance. The ambiance is good, laid back and informal. Frequented mostly by foreigners than local folks.
They have a good Wine collection. The Sicilian wine was great. The food was fantastic as well.

Location - 6/10 Bit difficult to reach - may be because of the rain and taxi and traffic and my impatience ...
Ambiance - 7/10
Service - 8/10
Food - 8/10
Return - YES

“Terrific Italian Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

The angel hair pasta with scallops was delicious but it was a bit costly. Service is very good and despite the crowd I am grateful they were able to accommodate us so last minute without a reservation. Appetizers like the eggplant parmesan are very large so they could definitely be shared by two people. Will definitely return to try more of their selections.

“Good selection of wine and food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

Went to Nene for a dinner with a colleague. Restaurant was packed, but we were offered last two seats by the bar, which was fine. Good selection of wine, though a little bit on a pricey side, they also serve Aperol spritz :). Food menu is pretty long, it has different pasta dishes, pizzas and mains. We shared antipasti platter and a pizza. Pizza was quite light and crispy. Antipasti was good, some of them were very tasty and delicate, others were nothing to rave about, like a small cubes of lasagne, which were cold and lacked depth. Overall a good restaurant, nice atmosphere.

“Great food, cozy spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

We called on a Saturday night around 6 and got the last table of the night by walking over right away. Very quaint and cozy. My 2 kids weren't the only ones...almost every table had a kid or two. Maybe because it was so early. My daughter's gnocchi was terrific. The bruschetta sampler was great. A little expensive, but a nice treat. Will go back.

“My new favorite restaurant in Shanghai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

This is one of those places where you want to go back a dozen times in a row to try out the menu....I had a calzone for lunch and I'm cannot rave about how its the best food in the world...because it was a calzone...but it was a very good calzone...for example, it had several varieties of mushrooms....not the expected canned mushrooms...and if they can do that with a calzone, I can't wait to find out what they do with pasta....

For a place with such great reviews on their pizzas, it seemed odd that their kitched didn't have a wood fired brick oven....but after tasting the crust of the calzone....I'm convinced that the fancy oven would have only provided additional asthetics... and not additional taste...

This restaurant is located on a quiet tree lined street...which is a dramatic departure from the high congestion of most of Shanghai...the interior of the restaurant is also very relaxed and comfortable...the service was friendly and prompt....everything in this restaurant invites you in and makes you want to stay....

Now the best part....the tiramisu.....wow

One other thing....I almost didn't go to this restaurant becasue on the tripadvisor page it says something about meals ranging from 900 to 3000 RMB....this is an error....pizzas are approx 128-160RMB, the calzone was around 160RMB, the tiramisu was 58RMB, if I remember correctly...I don't think you could pay 3000RMB for dinner here unless it lasted a week...

very happy with this restaurant....
