      Celebrated chef Salvatore Cuomo's, The Kitchen, brings some serious fine dining to the Pudong area, with its simple yet delicious Italian dishes. Set on the waterfront - beneath the Oriental Pearl Tower - the restaurant has wonderful views of the river and the tower. The large terrace is ideal for the warmer days, however, seeing that the building itself is basically a large, transparent, glass cube, your views will not be hindered if you are forced indoors.

    Splendid view and excellent food might mask you from their reckless over-charging. The last visit was almost perfect amidst some foul weather while a group of us were happily enjoying their great pasta and steak.

    What we didn't realise is while we have not been asking for it, they automatically open fresh bottles of sparkling water without our prior agreement. While the few of us insist we didn't drink that much water, it was a matter of they say and we say. They insist their system was never to ask whether we need to open another bottle but just to keep it flowing and the Manager has decided that she shouldn't be around at that time leaving their poor junior wait-staff to fend for this mistake. It was a perfect evening ruined by their reckless need to cheat us on water !

    Please check your bill carefully and remind them that if they open anything without your prior agreement, they can go pay for it themselves.

    I like this restaurant for the fantastic location - just next to the Huangpu which makes Spring and Autumn the best times to be dining alfresca - and great pizzas.

    What could be improved is the level of service. I hope that its because of the fact that they are busy or lack of wait staff and not because that i am of Asian descent as the reason of the poor service afforded to my dining partner and myself. If not for this issue i would have rated it 5 out of 5.

    You are here for the view-call ahead and specifically ask for a window table. Liked the food, really good, but not great and but uses authentic ingredients. But it's a bit pricey because your paying for the view of the river. But it's a good place for a fancy night out or a business dinner. Actually for the money I like their cheaper place in Thumb Plaza by the Nike Store. More of a Da Marco competitor but with better food and it's always got room.
    Molto Bene!

    This is a Kitchen that is really quite the opposite of Hell\'s Kitchen. Excellent, excellent Italian dining with one of the very best views a restaurant in Shanghai has to offer. Comfortable ambience to match.

    The staff is really just average in my experience, but their pastas and foods are just wonderful. Dare I say it? Maybe even the best pizza to be found in Shanghai. Benissimo Salvatore! Grazie Mille.

    I have only been to The Kitchen for lunch, but I've repeated that experience well over a dozen times.

    The lunch set menu is simply a great deal, offering a semi-set menu with 3 different price offerings (depending on whether you want, for example, a second course meat dish). The set includes an appetizer (usually small, but tasty), a pizza (AMAZING!) or pasta dish, the option of a succulent second course of meat or seafood (for more money), followed by a small but always delightful dessert and a finishing coffee or espresso.

    I know that the prices are significantly higher for dinner, but the set lunches are a deal. And the service is always efficient and polite.

    I'd highly recommend the pizza, with a glass of prosecco, while sitting outside (when it's warm enough) watching the overloaded ships float past.

    FANTASTIC..WONDERFUL..AMAZING..3 words to describe this restaurant.

    The ambience is simply fantastic, sitting along Huangpu River, while enjoying out food, we can enjoy the night scenes of the Puxi Bund area. The scene is gorgeous.

    The service staff are polite, the food is served on regular intervals.

    Thin crust pizza is rich, tasty and most importantly the ingredients used are fresh. The pasta serving is moderately large and the sauce is simply amazing.

    Desserts are just normal though, but the display is nice.

    A place I'll recommend to all my friends if they visit Shanghai. Simply one of the best pizzas I have had before.

    Isn't it a bit strange that as a customer you have to reach out for the menu that is handed over from over a distant counter? And what about the staff making jokes about our credit card?
    It is a pitty that after the many times we visited this place, we experience they still haven't understood what customer service is all about.

    It's just the best italian restaurant in shanghai. Pizze are fabulous, starters amazing, desserts make me dream...the service is perfect and the white wine very good.
    Little bit expensive but it worth it.

    If you go to The Kitchen at dinner, make sure you've taken out a loan before hand especially when you thrown in the wine. However, the Kitchen for lunch is absolutely sensational value with the set menu option.

    3 seperate options are available, ranging from about 130 to 170RMB. Serving sizes could be a little bit bigger, so would recommend to take either the combination with pizza or pasta. One thing that does annoy me is the 10rmb charge for an ice water. Only other option is to fork out 70rmb for bottled water.

    Service is ok, maybe a little bit snobby though, but the location is sensational, and the food is outstanding. If you are on the Dark Side for work or because you just happen to be in the area, and want a really fantastic gourmet lunch, hit the Kitchen!

    Wonderful setting, although could purchase some fans or misters for the terrace. The menu so so, tad expensive unsure of who said soggy pizzas are what should be served in Italy, but hey this is Shanghai. A number of staff a little sour faced and not taking the initiative to up sell. Oh well another overrated restaurant, really makes me wonder of the standards that patrons are used to if they consider this the best Italian restaurant in Shanghai.

    Definitely the best Italian food in Shanghai. This place one the World Pizza competition in Naples. Not the cheapest for sure.. but has perfect food and seating outside by the water.
