We have been to Da Marco for many times. Best food and wine for the money paid. This is one of our most favourable Italian restaurant in the city. And personally we believe the one near Jiangsu Road is better than the one in Xujiahui in terms of price-quality ratio.

The restaurant was very busy the night we went. I went with a group of friends that have lived in Shanghai a long time. They said Da Marco is always good even over the years. A nice simple design inside, the food was delicious!
A lot of hand made pasta, the beef carpaccio was huge and covered with lots of cheese.
Had a great evening and will return.

Very good Italian food found hidden away in a Chinese building on a typical Chinese residential street. Went for a friend's leaving do and surprised I had never been here or heard about this place - considering I've been here 3 yrs and live 10mins walk away!

Directions:
Close to Jiangsu Road metro station (Line 2: exit 2-3 on Yuyuan Road), walk down an alley that takes you to Dong Zhu'anbang Road where you will find a building next to Will's Gym.

The place was rammed with a good mix of local and ex-pats. Great atmosphere and the entrance hides how large this place is.

Group of 10 shared pizzas as appetisers before we all had our mains. The dishes from pastas, risottos and seafood all looked and tasted great. They also had a good selection of desserts - sorbets, profiteroles, panna cotta all went down well with the group!

Would definitely go again seeing that it is so close to me. Heard you really have to make bookings regardless of time of day as it is always packed.

Best food, best "trattoria" atmosphere. So kids friendly. Make you feel like your grandma will shortly come out of the kitchen!
