This chic and vibrant Italian restaurant is one of Shanghai’s hottest dining destinations.
Second Floor, JIA Hotel, 931 Nanjing Xi Lu
86 21 3302 4997
Set in the Nanjing Lu 1920s building of the Jia boutique hotel, Issimo by Salvtore Cuomo is a sexy restaurant and bar which serves authentic Italian and excellent Negroni’s. Ask for the gorgonzola gnocchi with yellow pear (sadly no longer a menu item but they will happily make it on request) or the D.O.C pizza from the copper-clad wood fire oven.
