Add:158 Chengdu Rd S.
Bricco Café is probably one of the best restaurants offering authentic, non-pretentious Italian fare in the busy area of Huaihai Road M. and Chengdu Road S. The spacious two-floor space features a casual coffee shop on the first floor and a dining area on the second. The concept covers the entire range of a day, from a morning coffee, lunch set, afternoon tea, to the dinner in the restaurant upstairs. Specialties are definitely pasta and pizza, with the kitchen headed by an Italian chef. The weekday lunch deal is popular; for 78 yuan one can get pasta, pizza or main course of the day, a choice of salad or soup, as well as dessert and a soft drink. Every Monday from 6pm, Bricco Café does buy-one-get-one-free pizza if you pre-book a table and every Wednesday from 7-10:30pm there's Italian-style aperitif; one can have the Italian buffet plus two glasses of wine or cocktails for 100 yuan. Bricco also has a corner well-stocked with Italian specialties, from wine, cheese and cold cuts to Italian design tableware.
