I've been to Mercato few times already... The place is well designed even though tables are to close one from another (the first time I preferred to seat at the bar as I was feeling to have a romantic dinner with the people behind).
The food is usually really good and you can especially their pizzas (looks strange to order pizzas in a high end restaurant) but the crust is made beautifully.
I have not mentioned a waiter named Louis which was exceptional as well (really helpful)
This being said I have been quite disappointed on my last visit. I have not mentioned but the restaurant is a bit expensive and:
* Prices are +15% (which is unusual in Shanghai) and I consider this "Cheap" from the management
* We had a nice dinner with approx 700 CNY per head (we knew this before coming), went to the bar and ordered Limoncello... We had several glasses and ended up with a bill of 350 CNY per pax (:()
OK, well, we know we were going to a fancy place which is not cheap... We asked the barman to offer a glass as I think this is the least he could do in such occasion and the guy simply refused.
Bye Bye Jean Georges !
