A one-year-old Italian eatery on leafy Yongfu Road, Nene has become a top choice in the area for lunch or a romantic dinner. Once you step inside the open-kitchen restaurant, it immediately feels like home. Managing partner Santo Greco said that they didn't want the eatery to be pretentious but a welcoming space for lovers of real Italian food. Hailing from Salento in south Italy, Greco brings a mix of Salento and Milano recipes at Nene. Some of the must-try recipes include eggplant parmiggiana (98 yuan/US$15.7), Minestrone vegetable soup (48 yuan) and orecchiette with broccoli and anchovies (138 yuan), a typical pasta from Puglia. To match the authentic Italian food, they only offer southern Italian wines, with around 50 varieties. A glass starts from 58 to 118 yuan. It is recommended to taste the wine from a glass then to open a bottle. The restaurant accommodates up to 50 guests for a seated dinner. A full-course dinner costs 1,000 yuan including a bottle of wine. The business lunch set starts at 78 yuan to 128 yuan per person.
