I suspect this place is hit-or-miss depending on what is selected from the menu. The soup is uninspiring and bland. The lasagna is decent but not mouth-watering. Bread is dry and bland. House Chianti is absolutely horrible, and they don't offer many wines by the glass. Service was OK, but not "attentive". I was definitely expecting more based on the... More

Best Italian restaurant in Shangai. Really. And I'm Italian, I know what I'm talking about. It's not cheap, but you can pay more for worse places.

I happened upon Da Marco while searching for an Italian restaurant in Shanghai and thought I would take a chance. It was a hunch that paid off. The whole experience was incredible from start to finish. The food was so fresh and prepared to perfection. Our waiter was such a good laugh and he made the evening even better. Will... More

For living in town for years, this restaurant is a sure value. Simple and classical Italian food but really worth it for the price. The welcoming of the guest with free slice of pizza + glass of proseco is really kind&professional

We always come to Da Marco if we look for a nice Italian food for reasonable prices. Pizza and Pasta are very good and authentic. Location is not fancy, but no issue if you are inside the restaurant. I can fully recommend Da Marco for a casual family lunch or dinner.

I have been a couple of times to this place and I have always been disappointed. The place is old, the menu hasn't changed for a years. The food is always soggy and doesn't feel fresh. I think with all the new italian places in town, there is no reason to go Da Marco anymore.

Friends who lived in Shanghai raved about this place. Da Marco's has an extensive menu of traditional Italian dishes. The pizza and pastas were very popular with other diners, but because my husband and I are gluten free, we selected two wonderful risottos. My mushroom risotto was huge and brimming with many types of delicious mushrooms. His seafood risotto was... More

Excellent and highly recommended from a associate! Food was great and service too. Surprised at the variety of pasta, pizza, chicken, and veal dishes to choose from. Great atmosphere for western customer entertainment.

Staying in Zhongshan Park

Neighbourhood Profile
Zhongshan Park
The residential and commercial areas around the beautiful grounds of Zhongshan Park have never been considered particularly fashionable by a majority of Shanghai’s foreign residents, but plenty of expats do choose to live here. The park itself is a huge draw, providing a pocket of serenity in the middle of the metropolis. The area has its share of trendy shops with wares that can’t be found elsewhere, delicious restaurants with food ranging from fancy to affordable, and great hidden bars. Rents are also cheaper here than in other neighborhoods with the same conveniences. Aside from the obvious attractions, with its neighborhood fix-anything shops and pop-up street stalls that sell anything you need, you’ll never sacrifice Western comforts.
