      Slightly out of the laowai loop, this cozy, 60-seat Italian trattoria does deeply satisfying pizzas, pastas and grilled meats. Dishes range from familiar favorites like linguine with clams to slow roasted pork short rib glazed in honey, rosemary and fennel.

    Mix a financial analyist with dreams of money without any knowledge of Italian food or culture and you have Scarpetta. Not for anyone remotely familiar with Italian food because it tastes nothing like it. Only for the unknowledgeable. I believe all other attempts by this group will result in the same tasteless venues such as this piece of shoe leather. Stick with finance. You can't derive a menu from online research. It involves knowledge, familiarity and above all, a passion which Scarpetta lacks.

    The food remains with the same quality from pre-newal times. Which is great from one side but a bit disappointing because I expected to see new creations and flavors.

    The polenta and the parmesan crust are out of this world and the pizzas are my favorite in Shanghai because of the crispiness of the borders. The ambience is very friendly and the invariable wait is well worth.

    Limited choices of courses, expensive prices (no dish worth less than 100 rmb including pizzas which are all around 150RMB and relatively small serving on top), poor wine list (unless at indecent price), dishes quality so-so, atmosphere/decoration quite poor.
    The Shanghai italian scene offers much better alternative in absolute terms, and with a much better value for money.

    I recommend you do not go to this restaurant, it was the worst restaurant I have been to in the last 5 years in Shanghai. The services, food (expensive), decor were all terrible. Pizzas with broccoli or potatoes on them (!?) can't be good, and indeed, it was awful. I have nothing positive to say about this place, so if you want to spare yourself a disappointment, avoid this place at all costs.

    We went there with high expectations as we heard Anna was a talented chef.....and we were not disappointed! Every bite was perfection, from the bread basket to the lavender vanilla panna cotta. The pizzas were flavorful with just the right crust; the pork rib was tender and seasoned well; the calamari and carpaccio simply delish.

    Service was attentive and the ambiance relaxing and unpretentious. We will go back often.
    What more can I add to an excellent place!

    I couldn't find any fault with the food or service, and I thought I was dining in a different restaurant to the one listed after reading some of them reviews in SmartShanghai.

    The food we ordered was great, (I was late for dinner though, else I would have ordered the Caprese Salad with Burrata and also the Meat Platter)
    Scarpetta Salad and Beef Carpaccio.
    The Beef Carpaccio is simply delicious, I believe they used Wagyu as you can see the marbling on each of the thinly sliced beef.
    Seasoning is spot on, quantity was OK, but hey, this is Shanghai after all.

    For mains, we had the Shrimp & Chorizo Pizza and also their famous Pork Ribs.
    Pizza crust was airy and had the pre-requisite char spots.
    Pork ribs was meltingly tender, maybe because there was a layer of fat to accompany it.

    Their manager, Chris, comped us a Squid Ink pasta because the 2 mains did not arrive together.
    It was a nice gesture, totally awesome but he did not need to do that because we were so into our Pork Ribs that we forgot our pizza has not arrived yet.
    The Squid Ink pasta tasted great, citrusy tangy, sweet and refreshing.
    Pasta was al-dente as well.

    We also had a glass of Gaja, wow, wow wow, just try it, enough said.

    To end, we had the Tiramisu.
    It was not bad per se, it just wasn't the flavour that I was looking for.
    Overly sweet, I think they should use a bitter liqueur or more espresso to soak up the finger biscuits.
    Anyways, I will seek to try out their Budino as I was told it was the kinda flavour I was looking for.


    P/S: the washrooms are immaculate, clean and one of the best that I've seen in Shanghai. Not sure why I bothered to mention this, but hey, check it out.
    Overall, this is a place that I will want to come back over and over again.
    I just wish that they do lunch or brunch during weekend because I would be craving for them soon.
