After a week in China it was a surprise, and a nice change from all Chinese food and roast Peking duck, to find good italian food with excellent wine and a very personal and friendly service. Just at the Bund in Shanghai and at a very reasonable price.

Me and some friends was there and there was a really good service and a very nice atmosphere so we had a really good time. And the food to put it in one word = Great.

I would go there again for sure.

Not sure why the very negative comment earlier in the thread. Had pretty much the opposite experience.
Went for a late "pre Bar Rouge" dinner with my girlfriend last Saturday 24th August. We arrived around 10pm without reservation and the manager gave us a table near the bar area after 5 minutes of waiting. Goodfellas was quite busy with a nice looking crowd having dinner, but also with few enjoying drinks at the high tables or outside, in pre clubbing mode as we were.
We ordered the Duck Carpaccio, which was well presented and had a very delicate taste, and the Cold Cuts as starters followed by a nice slightly spiced Seafood soup and a solid Carbonara with Truffle and closed the deal with a Tiramisu' and a shot of Sambuca. The waiter recommended an Italian Rose' from Salento that was served properly chilled.
In 2 people with a bottle of wine we spent a reasonable (consider it is on the Bund) 700RMB and the overall experience was very positive: food was tasty, service was attentive and all in a very nice ambiance.
Will definitely go back to try out more of the menu and of the extensive wine list, but if on a romantic date you might want to go on a weeknight instead of a weekend night.

The service in this place was excellent for China but the food was only average. The steaks are so thin, if you waved them past a light bulb for a few seconds, it would be well done. The starter was great and well presented and the prices reasonable.

I had quite a problem to find the location, but that's an everyday experience in China ;-)

If you are a Western and you like genuine Italian food, than you should know they import their flour and most of their ingredients directly from Italy. TheSo it can not be cheaper than a fast food pizza chain, but at least you experience the real Italy food in China.
Dishes are small and even the restaurant is small for Chinese standards. So make a reservation beforehand to get a seat.

Except of one Chinese shareholder, the owners are Italian, so you will experience that Italian home feeling.
