In Shanghai for business for about a week, my colleagues decided they wanted a break from Asian food. "Pasta!" they said. And that's how we lucked into Venexia, a quick walk from our hotel on Panyu Road. (Spoiler alert: they're moving to a new location later this year but still close.) This is an easy one: fantastic service. Extraordinary and... More

The restuarant is a little dated and needs some freshening up. Place was not lively with only a big group of men smoking at the center table. The food was good, mostly because I was happy to get break from Asian cuisine. Not sure I would go back.

The food at this restaurant was superb as was the service! There were 8 of us on a business trip and we wanted Italian, and we were not disappointed. The restaurant itself was lovely and we immediately felt at ease, and the manger spoke English which helped us a lot! I cannot fault this restaurant and would highly recommend it... More

was brought here with business partner, who had talked about it a few times, telling me how you wouldn't believe this place. After driving across Shanghai , and parking in alleyway next to the place with unsuspecting store front, we entered an old home. We are not in Shanghai anymore. Could have been anywhere. We were greeted at the door... More

I loved my trip to China but after 5 days of Chinese food, I was ready for a change. The concierge at the Crown Plaza suggested the Venexia. It is a short walk down and a straight shot from the hotel. The walk is interesting. Strange smells. Shops with locals milling around. The typical scooters on the sidewalks. Then you... More

Beautifully quiet, with attentive service and authentic food, made for a great Italian evening in Shanghai. After a week of Chinese - scale banquets with lavish local food it was a real treat to relax with a well balanced Vitello Tonato and a simple bowl of home-made fettuccine with an excellent and nicely prepared Porcini dressing. Add to that a... More

My wife was there some months ago and enjoyed the food... The location is one of the most romantic in Shanghai- really a kind of "first date place" . Like a vintaged upscale trattoria in Italy with the corresponding mouthwathering menu full elegant Italian dishes ... Maybe the normal team was still on vacation or they have changed the team:...

dark, moody and slightly themed dining room. attentive, quiet staff. pretty authentic European menu. salad with ricotta and walnuts, pizza with parma-type ham and a couple of decent glasses of Italian red...comfortingly familiar after a week of local delicacies. at home i'd have probably rated it as average...but in the context...very good.

This restaurant is located very close to Crowne Plaza Hotel 400 Pan Yu Road, short walk, wonderful atmosphere, authentic Italian food , large menu, servings are large, some can be shared, very comfortable seating, and service is very very good. Italian chef from Venice Italy will visit each table to welcome and give some info about restaurant.Will return again soon.

The tortolloni was good but very few amount. The lasagna was ok, but not many many meat, and the pizza so, so. The best the tiramisu and the capucino.

Neighbourhood Profile
Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang
West of Shanghai’s better-known business, cultural and entertainment centers, lies an expansive area of residential neighborhoods peppered with lifestyle pockets that have their own unique attractions. The schools have formed pockets of international communities throughout Gubei, Hongqiao and Minhang. Quite a few entertainment and shopping centers have built up over the years to cater to these communities. While living here means you are relatively far away from Shanghai’s usual hot spots, the large parks, spacious homes and proximity to great Japanese and Korean food keep the neighborhoods popular.
