Spent our New Year's Eve at Seve's and enjoyed the food tremendously. The preset menu was full of variety (lobster, prawns, beef, pork, pastas and risotto) and the quality was better than I had hoped for. Understated ambiance was refreshing. Definitely looking forward to returning soon.

Food is very good, sometimes a little bit long the waiting time. Service is nice and the atmosphere very relaxing.
Overall a very nice restaurant even if a little bit pricey.

Having lived in Shanghai for two months and walking by this restaurant many times as we live nearby, I was anxious to see if it lived up to the reviews that I had read on Trip Advisor and it certainly did! We were pleased to be able to sit outside and were treated to an excellent experience thanks mostly to our waitress Julia. She was a delight to chat with and made us very comfortable and made the whole experience delightful. I had a gnocchi dish with crab that was delightful and my husband had a ravioli dish that was very tasty. Service in some cases can make or break a restaurant and Julia definitely made the whole experience a delight! We will definitely return.

During our recent trip we visited Seve in Huashan Road. We have been here several times. We like the atmosphere: so relaxing and service always friendly and attentive. The dishes are well prepared and always tasty and the pizza is great. I like their wine selection, short but well balanced with good wines and fair price, hard to find it in Shanghai. Severino , the owner, makes always sure the guests enjoy their meal. Complimentary glass of prosecco to welcome and shot of home made limoncello to cheers and thanks everybody at the end of meal.

Went back in Shanghai for business trip , after almost a year,and decided to go Seve again ( with some friends for dinner.
We had it all, appetizers ( extremely remarkable the octopus carpaccio and the fried pecorino), the first was risotto with prosecco and was amazing, then i got tuna carpaccio very tasty and the others went for meat and were satisfied as well.
Clear that we are not in diet or worried about calories , so we went for the mix dessert, which has been an delightful experience! we have been amazed by the Food, the chef running the kitchen ( which I ask to meet and congratulate at the end) is really inspired in its cooking ,Food is 2 full thumbs UP here!
What needs to be better: Wine list can be better ( as well as the service, we had to ask the waiter twice to get it) in selection and also in appearance ,nevertheless we had 2 white and 2 red bottle of wines from Alto Adige, very good (well at 398, you expect them to be good)
the restaurant maybe need some improvement on the decor but still a quite nice ambient and atmosphere.
Service can be better in general ,its not attentive as you would expect (but maybe because the owner was not there that evening and we arrived and stay quite late) as well as the selection of the after dinner liquor
Damage was very reasonable for what we ate and drink , of course is not a cheap restaurant but for that level of food the price is more than ok.
