for a decent pizza in a tourist area of shanghai xintiandi, you can't go wrong with pizza marzano. we prefered the thinner crust version that they had. it's all fresh and quite decent.

“It's Pizza Express...but it's better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2013

Used to frequent Pizza Express in London, so we had mixed feelings about going to a fancy sit-down pizza joint in XTD. It was very good. From the salad starter to the pasta and pizza we chose, all were tasty. Our only complaint was the price, but we knew that going into the restaurant. Try it!

“For tourists and clueless Chinese”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2013

I am an expat living in Shanghai. I have been to Pizza Marzano a couple of times because it has several convenient locations in town, it is clean and has a nice modern setting. Service is OK. Food is OK if you want a quick meal. Beer is served cold, as it should be. Overall, a place for tourists and for Chinese clueless about real Italian food. Their pizzas and pastas are of the "supermarket" type. You can eat much better for much less in Shanghai.

“Get your pizza fix at Pizza Marzano”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013

When you tire of Chinese food (and you should eat Cinese in China, it's so good and NOT like Chinese food in most of the rest of the world), and you need a pizza fix, Marzano's is a good choice. A little on the spendy side, but great pizza and salads, nice people, friendly service, everything you would expect when the price is on the steep side.
