Had the opportunity to visit this restaurant by the recommendation of one Italian friend and have to say that it is by far the best Italian restaurant I have stayed in Shanghai. The service is attentive and laid-back, very helpful when you are not familiar with the dishes and menu. Portions are big enough, tasty and the price is that, you pay for what you get ( 98 RMB for a Pizza of that quality is not expensive minding the quality and size). I was very surprised as well about the beef tenderloin ( never had one from Mongolian beef) which was served with just salt, pepper and olive oil, baked potatoes and a little salad, not sauces and no sh....the chocolate profiterole made my night and the limoncello just was the best end we could have, very very tasty. We went into the house wine for the drinks. I do not remember which wine we had ( the sommelier suggested) but the wine was pretty good so we made 2 bottles ( probably that's the reason I do not remember...). Overall and very nice night, kinda familiar feeling, casual and smooth vibe . . . Totally recommended.
Newly opened cafe close to my company, unique design and special flavours. All the staff there are very friendly and talkative. I bought 3 bags of coffee beans from them with a promotional discount, will try tmr. Have been told they will hold grand opening party next month, can't wait to attend:)
Light and Salt is high-end, no-nonsense restaurant with attractive environs, no doubt. I particularly enjoy the bar side of Light and Salt located in the rear of the space. The atmosphere has some charming historical and classy touches here and there. My expectations for the cuisine may have been exceedingly elevated, as each course left me with pangs of disappointment. The side plate of vegetables was equally uninspired. Coupled with their exorbitant pricing schedule, Light and Salt left me feeling rather unfulfilled, unfortunately. Service, however, was relatively fluid.
