One of the best Italian restaurants in Shanghai. Good quality ingredients and the sauces are full of flavors. Portions are right size and not only made for instagram purposes. Interior could be improved and restaurant can become a bit cold in winter. Go there if...you like to enjoy great Italian cooking.More

Spectacular rustic and flavoursome Italian cuisine. We had an extraordinary wine dinner headed by Chef Serafin in the Kitchen. Very precise cuisine, authentic and very hedonistic, come with an empty stomach. Top notch service, very generous and welcoming. Thanks to Mongling and the team for...such a memorable evening!More

Our Beefsteak & Burgundy Club (Shanghai 238) ventured to the Bund for our May event to enjoy a proper Italian meal at Atto Primo, and from start to finish we were absolutely delighted. The force behind Atto Primo, Chef Patron Gianluca Serafin (from Piemonte, Italy)...designed an exquisite menu for our dinner, which mixed elements of traditional Italian cooking with signature touches that took them to a new level. Matthew Ona, a senior member of the kitchen team, was our MC for the evening—introducing the courses and setting the scene for both culinary enjoyment and jovial good fun. And the service was exceptional—restaurant manager Monling Wang and her team managed to keep the food and wine consistently flowing for our group of 17 members and guests. We commenced the evening at the bar with passed canapés and a lovely Prosecco Superiore. The canapés were a delicious selection of bruschetta interpretations — one with smoked salmon, one with both vine-ripened and sun-dried tomatoes, and (my favorite) one with foie gras wrapped around house-made fig jam — each served on different types of crisp toast. After our appetites were sufficiently whet, we moved to the private room where an elegantly set long table awaited. Our first course was a Wagyu beef tartare (accented by sardines, sardine mousse, course mustard and a colorful salad), which paired well with a 2018 Tommasi, "Le Volpare", Soave Classico. This was followed by a lobster homardine, which included healthy chunks of lobster fresh from the restaurant’s tank as well as several other elements, making it more than your usual lobster bisque. We wouldn’t always give a soup its own wine pairing, but this course cried for it, and the 2018 Ermes Pavese Blanc de Morgex et de la Salle we selected complemented the homardine perfectly. And on to the Cabernet braised lamb leg mafalde pasta (hand-made ribbon pasta with seared chanterelles, dried cherry tomato, spring chervil and aged pecorino) we went. Can you say gourmet comfort food?! We loved it, and a 2015 L'U Rosso (Merlot - Sangiovese) paired nicely. Just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, Chef Gianluca came out to personally carve two super thick USDA dry aged Prime flank stakes that had been both smoked and wood grilled. My mouth is watering again just writing about it. We paired the steak with a 2014 Col d’Orcia, "Olmaia", Sant’ Antimo Cabernet, which both harmonized with the dish and cleansed the palate between sumptuous bites. For dessert we had a beautifully presented dark chocolate mousse with pear cremeux, which presented a final culinary adventure. A 2016 Recioto della Valpolicella Classico paired perfectly, balancing both the dark chocolate and the salted caramel accents. Fully satiated, we retired once again to the bar area where most appropriately our hosts poured limoncello as a digestif. A fantastic evening was had by all!More

After the clouds of the current global situation have long been blown away, what remains from F&B will likely show a trail of those fallen by the wayside. If you want to protect your favourite eateries and ensure those post quarantine parties can be held...at a location close to your heart as well as your stomach then act now. Many restaurants adapted and changed their model, offering delivery. Gian Luca from Atto Primo, during some downtime has been making best use of his cosmic kitchen knocking up some delicious pastries. There’s been different options offered on a daily basis. See pics for the one I ordered and within 60mins arrived at my home, fresh, moist and scrumptious. Self-isolation at home doesn’t have to result in self-depravation for your belly. There’s only one downside, the potbelly when all this is over!More

We got fed up with Jean Georges " Fast Food Italian" , so we went across the road to try Atto's. What a move , this place is the best Italian in China , by a long shot. Pasta cooked to perfection , meats and...vegetable's cooked in the Italian fashion . There were 6 of us and we ate a wide variety of dishes from the extensive menu ; superb. I would guess we had 14 dishes between us and they were all top notch, robust flavouring , plenty of herbs and fresh produce . I had a fish dish and I am always keen to try fish mainly as it is so easy to overcook or spoil , have to say it was a decent portion and was perfectly prepared and cooked. The wine list was impressive and mid priced wines represented the best value , we drank both red and white. The deserts looked fabulous , although I did not partake , those who did said the quality and flavours were excellent. All of this was backed up with a really attentive and well supervised floor staff ; no groups standing chatting and texting on their phones in this place :) Stick on your must try list , you will not be disappointed.More
