[RW] Visited Salotto G for the first time during the Restaurant Week. The selected menu was complete, coherent, and good list of starters. We had the Mozarella di Buffala and the Salmon both proved to be good choices to start. Then continued with our favorite, Gnocchi on Mushrooms sauce & Truffle Aroma, a great combination topped with the smell of truffle! To accompany the dinner we ordered a bottle of Sicilian red wine, recommended by the manager, a good choice smooth and with a particular finishing a bit earthy; however, overpriced for its quality and for being a very young wine, 2014. I definitely prefer the cocktail I ordered, Antica Negroni, bitter and smokey with a burnt rosemary leaf in it.
The main course were disappointing, as I went for the Red Fish on Tomato Sauce which just tasted like tomato sauce and same case for the Ox tail presented in a bowl plate that made it very difficult to cut. Honestly, the main courses were lacked of presence and flavors.
The desserts were very good, specially we asked them to change one and had the Apple pie instead which was very good.
Definitely will go back again to try more cocktails and to dine in a more casual way, sitting at the bar with some antipasti and pizza slices.

Cool, good and genuine!
I loved the Salotto G, the food were excellent and the drinks to die for!
When travelling alone on business I am looking for a cosy place and not the white tablecloth restaurant. This is just the restaurant for you who look for a relaxed place with genuine Italian food and cosy atmosphere. I was dining in the bar but upstairs there is a dining area. Small dishes but good. Go there, you will not be disappointed!

Went there for dinner and were greeted by the helpful staff. Started with their signature cocktails which were excellent and well presented.
You can feel the food is made from high quality ingredients, and the terrace is a perfect spot for romantic night under the cool Shanghai september weather :)
Price is on the steep side but happy to spend a bit more for the quality of ingredients.
