“Nice restaurant, great food”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

Did have a great pizza and a nice salad at this nice place. All italian restaurants i've visited have been placed outside Italy, but i really believe this to be true italian.

Came quite late, got a nice welcome, and a fast service. Waited only a short time for the drinks (A nice burgundy & bottled water), and only a little longer for the food.

On my next trip i'll stay at a nearby hotel again, and will for sure come to the little oasis in the big city of Shanghai again.

“Outstanding Italian Cuisine in Lujiazui”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

I had dinner at Sale e Pepe with my friends and was impressed. The food was very delicious and well presented as well. Service was warm and attentive. The casual and relaxed atmosphere made us feel welcome and let us enjoy a very nice evening. Very affordable prices as well. I recommend it as the best value for money italian restaurant in Lujiazui.

“Yummy Food, nice atmosphere and good service.”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

Among of many Italian restaurants in Shanghai, this one is the most authentic traditional taste with high quality ingredients. Our family had a wonderful dinner during weekend. Each family member had chosen their favorite menu includes my 2 kids. Painting, decoration and wooden roof all show Italian culture. Second floor even has offered children play facility. Cool, a lovely place and we will be back again for sure.

“great value and authentic Italian food”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

It's always a risk to eat Italian in China but after a week of good Chinese food we were looking for something casual and different. Service and wine here were excellent. The food was filling and tasty. Well worth a visit if you are staying or working in the financial district.
