      Da Marco is a perennial expat favorite for Italian. Its simple formula -- inexpensive, decent Italian -- has kept this, its original location, going for years. The menu is mostly pizza and pasta, with a few more ambitious mains, but generally, the simpler, the better. Great for a weekday meal; not so good for impressing a date.

    How many chances there are that an italian restaurant can make a pasta worse than the one you do at home? in italy none, but in shanghai, even in a famous one, is something you should always consider.
    i took an arrabbiata and simply it was embarassing... from wrong kind of backon, not crispy but soft, sauce (too sweet and not spicy), cerry tomatos (???!!!) inside and so on.. simply terrible. I don't suggest it to anyone that like italian food, if they can do such terrible job with an easy recpie like that i wonder with the other.. I reapt, it's not that was simply wrongly done, it was all the concept that was wrong, wrong ingredients to begin with.
    never again.
    Great value for money

    This place is a really good Italian with great value for money.

    When we arrived the waiter friendly guided us to our table.
    There is a lot of choice on the menu, the appetizers are all around 60rmb and the main courses start are around 60rmb to 180rmb for the grilled foods.
    The drinks menu is also good, I had a Duvel for just 35rmb.
    When you arrive you will get a basket with different kinds of bread and breadsticks, just like in Italy, you'll also get some bruchettas with tomato.
    We ordered the Beef carpaccio, Vitello Tonnato and the Seafood soup as appetizers. As main course we ordered Pasta with beef sauce and a Pizza margaritha. The only bad thing I can say is that they served our drinks several minutes after we got our food but the food arrived quite fast so I don't really mind

    The beef carpaccio and the vitello tonnato (+- 60rmb each) were both delicious and generously portioned. The seafood soup also tasted good but the there were only some small shells and tiny crab legs in it.

    The pizza was quite big and very good value for money, the margaritha was only 68rmb and other pizza's were from 70 till 90rmb.

    My friend had the pasta with beef sauce but she didn't even touch it because she was already full from the starters

    In total we had 3 starters, 2 mains, a glass of sparkling wine and a Duvel and the total was just over 400rmb.

    If you like good Italian food and you don't want to pay too much you should go to Da Marco.

    Da Marco is simply excellent, as always. It has become an Institution in Shanghai.
    The restaurant itself is so cozy, you immediately feel like you’re home. I don’t say this only because I’m italian, it really gives this feeling. Most of the time Marco is at the bar to welcome you.
    I am so happy to see the restaurant full any day I go, with always a great mix of chinese and foreign customers.

    The staff is great, very kind and professional. Keep up the good work.

    Everything in the menu is very good, but what I always suggest as entree is the Antipasto della casa. It's a big dish (get ready to be at least 3 pax to finish it all) with prosciutto di parma (sweet ham), salame, mortadella, salmon, parmesan, mozzarella di bufala (fresh) , other types of cheese and focaccia (salty white bread/pizza).
    As for the many dishes, you have a big choice of pasta, rice, seafood, meat….and of course pizza.
    Unfortunately the pasta isn’t cooked enough for me, but the taste is fine. The rice is simply perfect. If you’re lucky to get the menu of the day you have to try the Lavander Rice.
    Value for money? If possible I would give it 6 stars our of 5. You really get what you pay for…even more! Since the portions are really big and the real italian taste.

    Great choice of wines and if you don’t want to spend a fortune you can get Primitivo. A red, sweet, passionate and very aromatic wine.

    For dessert, you can’t finish dinner without a great lemon sorbetto. And to wash it all down, Limoncello and Amaretto are a must.

    I had the tuna salad, and thought that since it was an Italian restaurant, it would be good. My mistake. It was basically a bowl of lettuce, with a few pieces of tomatoes, and some nasty tinned and plain olives. The dressing was plain too. What made it worse, was that there was another salad on the special menu which had olives on it, and they were delicious, but mine only had the yucky tinned ones. I know the special menu was pricier, but why have inferior ingredients at all in a restaurant, if you know they're bad...??????
