Pizza Marzano is Shanghai’s answer to Italian restaurant chains. Imported from UK-based Pizza Express restaurant, the food is said to be Italian but you truly feel the strong English accent (thick crust, dough balls). The portions are big and the dough balls with Nutella are the most worthy diet blunder you could make. A sweettooth favorite!
However, Italian foodistas do not expect to be turned on. For a truly Italian experience yet less expensive head to Salute – but yes you wont find better Nutella dough balls around Shanghai.
We had dinner at the Xintiandi branch and I am not really fond of the decoration: impersonal and dull with bad lighting. It is a good place to hit before a movie night at the nearby UME Cinemas.
