Description: The restaurant's easy approach to Mediterranean fare includes options from the land and sea and is highlighted by appetisers to share and no-fuss set lunches. Not to be missed are the authentic Neapolitan-style pizzas, Italian burrata and house-made pasta and gelato. Those on the go may want to grab a pizza or gelato from the takeout window, which faces Anyi Road. The second-floor lounge tops off the venue with extra vibrancy. This venue allows guests to witness some of Shanghai's trendiest events. Its wide terrace has its own entrance, and a rotating cast of DJs and live musicians add energetic vibes to the lounge, which features a creative cocktail menu that is filled with fun options. Guests will feel as comfortable here on casual Fridays as they will in their best tuxedos or evening gowns. With world-class food and beverage options, Calypso is one of the city's best designed venues and sure to be a hit. There is no better mix.

Had lunch there during peak hours but it was not crowded at all (of course its high price is one of the reasons). Love this spacious and modern design. Spent two to three hours there for a relaxing lunch. Pizza is fantastic, the cheese and tomato make it irresistible. Coffee, pasta and dessert are all great. We ordered the scallops appetiser but the scallops are just normal and small in size but it is more expensive than the pizza! Would rather have another pizza.

We have had again an excellent italian lunch at Calypso thanks to Chef Luciano Farinelli!
Pastas and risotto are wonderful, and pizzas are, from far, the best in town!
Also very good choice of other fine italian dishes with meat, or fish and desserts... We have not yet tested all so it will make us come back several times more.
Wine list offers a good selection of affordable bottles from Italy and other countries.
A place for fans of Italian good food!

I've been to Bella Napoli, Mercato, Da Marco, La Strada, and a few other Italian restaurants in Shanghai and the quality of the pizza here was far superior to any of the others I've tried in this city.
I would not recommend the saffron risotto or scallops. But I think the food overall is pretty decent for Shanghai standards.

Came here for a work function and will most definitely be back! Ground floor has outdoor terrace but by far the best part of this place is the amazing roof terrace where the roof slides back!! Staff were lovely and the space is well designed.

Went there last night for their Michelin Star dinner.
Dinner was very good, foods I would never normally see, let alone eat!
Quality was excellent, price 888RMB per person. I've spent less for better food and more for worse food, so no complaints, went to try the experience.
I'd go back for the Michelin dinner again, I may visit the restaurant during normal hours just to try their house foods.
