Description: Mercato is a new coastal Italian restaurant from celebrated three Michelin star Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Three on the Bund. The gorgeous space created by Neri&Hu, bridges the organic and natural with elegance and emotive modernity. The experience begins from the moment guests enter Mercato's stylishly rustic surroundings. Reclaimed wood and warm leather tones serve as a gentle complement to the exposed steel, iron and glass to create an atmosphere that is polished yet warm and inviting. The design imparts a sensual feeling of comfort and lightness that redefines the idea of "farm chic". Mercato's decidedly simple and understated approach represents a refreshing addition to Shanghai's dining scene. The relaxed sophistication, addictive cuisine, and friendly, thoroughly unpretentious service paints a picture of Italian life as it should be experienced in its purest form.

Great view on the Bund in a very nice building. Good relaxed atmosphere and nice food, one of the nicest Italian restaurant of Shanghai ... very fresh and inventive ... I recommend.
For pre-dinner drinks or later in the evening, don't forget to go on the 2nd floor of the same building at Unico ... best bar in town !

Very cool space with great food selections. Ask for table by the windows for a beautiful view of the Bund and Pudong. Everything ordered was great... Warm seafood salad was exceptional.

We got in easily without a booking and really loved the vibe at this Bund area trendy Italian. The pizza was delicious and the views really lovely. We didn't go until after 10pm and it was great that this place is late night so there was no issue getting food. I couldn't even tell we were in Shanghai here. It felt like NY!

What a welcome experience. After days of Chinese light and grease free food panko crusted eggplant Parmesan was a real treat. The bar is hip and busy. Stylish crowd of expats and locals are fun to look at.

We went as a group of friends for some dinner and drinks but ended up spending quite a but of time and money...all because , the place was great.

The Shanghainese staff were very friendly and accommodating and we truly enjoyed the evening. Great recommendations on both food and wines. Not the cheapest venue but you cant have everything.

Just a passing comment, the Expatriate "management" were a bit aloof, sad as the local guys were so good.

I would certainly go back and recommend Marcato as a great place to eat and get together.
