Ordered a few pizzas from Seve and it was outstanding. First time to eat Seve. I look forward to eating it again and trying out many other dishes. It was probably the best pizza I have had in Shanghai. Reminded me of a nice pizza back in Italy. It is the very soft flat style with a nice outer crust.

Thank RossGB

Nice wine list. Excellent wait staff. Great menu. Food PERFECT. From start to finish I can only think "perfect". As close to Italy (except of course Chinese wait staff, which were VERY good) as I've been in a long time. Small restaurant so make reservations if you're going to be after 7:00.

This is a well run restaurant in a quieter part of town. We liked that the waitresses were proactive in recommending dishes and changing our cutleries. The owner also goes around the tables giving a personal touch to the restaurant. We had dinner and ordered the Cod Fish and Iberian Black Pork as our main. The ingredients were of high... More

Seve is a lovely restaurant with very cosy atmosphere, it feels like you are dining in upscale Italian restaurant in Europe. What really impressed me were the ingredients they use, very fresh juicy and aromatic. Delicious food and excellent service! Generous portions!

I went there last week with a colleague and we had cold cuts, tortelli and pizza to share. At the arrival the welcome Prosecco glass was very much appreciated, and introduced me in a very simple but cozy atmosphere. Cold cuts were good and served with nice schiacciata (or white pizza = white bread made with the pizza dough). The... More

We visited this restaurant to celebrate birthday in Dec. The place was warm and cozy and we were promptly given a table. We had few vegetarian choices and the staff was reluctant to customise any to our needs. After we placed the order it took almost 40 minutes for the first dish to arrive ... We had better Eggplant Parmesan... More

Dear Sunil N, thanks to review Seve and I apologize for the inconvenience you mentioned .

Neighbourhood Profile
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
