Ok to have a pizza. The view on the river is fine although one cannot see the whole Bund. Prices are reasonable for the area with good range and selection. Staff speaks good english which helps.

We stumbled on this restaurant while walking the riverwalk behind the Shanghai Ocean Aquarium. At first it did not look like a restaurant, but upon entering, were pleasantly surprised by the location, decor and food. We had the lunch buffet, which was a choice of...More

Situated in a standalone house, the entrance is dimly lit and difficult to find in the dark. Upon entering , we found the front desk desolate and the staff most disinterested Upstairs a few tables were occupied but the ambience too empty. We ordered the...More

TAVOLA Shanghai Italian Dining is an idea venue for business entertainment, and for sharing the nice moments with friends. Even before you lost in the nice food and good wine, you will already feel slightly tipsy from the cool breeze over the water.
