Relocated from the original way back on Donghu Hotel, Casa Mia is still the same husband and wife team from Wenzhou by way of Italy, and there’s still no menu: the wife will tell you what’s on the menu that day but mostly it’s pastas (the crab tagliatelle is 98rmb and a perennial favorite), the roasted octopus leg is also 98rmb, and so is the porcini tagliatelle. The husband is in the kitchen. Overall the experience is super intimate and comfy, which is what made the original a cult favorite and pretty much the perfect date spot. Very recommended to get a reservation, as it tends to get booked out days in advance.
We check out a historical building in Xuhui, now turned into a culture hub.
