Been there on Tuesday, what an experience, great atmosphere but most importante the food was divine. As a start suggest you ask for a soup that contains truffle and mushrooms, main course go for the Colorado lamb, desert take a turtle ice cream. The service was outstanding, ask for Wanessa, very knowledgable and friendly, she has complemented the lovely night... More

My husband and I love Otto e mezzo. We love it so much, we've been back pretty much every week since discovering it about a month back. The food is consistently excellent and the limoncello soufflé is beyond excellent. After a long hard week at work, the food here makes the shoulders come down from the ears and puts a... More

We arrived for lunch without a booking and made very welcome. We had been walking and opted to cool down with a drink at the bar. There is a very good drinks list including an extensive wine list. When deciding to order we noticed that the set menu didn't offer paired wines, but our waitperson was very accomadating with pairing... More

The manager Leo took excellent care of our group. We started at the bar, where we had some of the best wine I've ever had (at his recommendation). He also served us some spicy nuts and Italian olives. Then we moved to a table. The view of the Bund was excellent and the restaurant was clean and comfortable. Atmosphere was... More

We loved our dinner there. The food is exceptional, the service friendly and view of Pudong wonderful. I can only recommend this dinner experience. The taste of the dishes is as good as the cooking of the best kitchens in Italy. Go, but go with an empty stomach and the eat and eat. Heavenly!

Ok....i have had the privilege to have some amazing dining experiences around the world. And no matter how good, it takes a lot for me to rate something a 5. There was no doubt this dining experience would get a 5. I was dining with a work colleague on a business trip in Shanghai. We found Otto e Mezzo through... More

I made a reservation on their website a week or so in advance, and received a confirmation text message. When we arrived there the day of the reservation, the hostess told me that they had a private event and could not seat us. While I understand that there was an event, they should then not have confirmed my reservation in... More

Its right around the corner from the Peninsula and just off the Bund. The two managing partners were both there and are from Italy and could not have been nicer. Its a high end place but the chef still comes out to chat and ask about your meal. The food was outstanding and the wine that they chose for us... More

Staying in The Bund

Neighbourhood Profile
The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai International Settlement run by the British and Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has endured over time and is now found in the five-star hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
