If Italian food had a wardrobe, this one's wearing top hat and tails. The lauded Italian import swooped into Shanghai from the vineyards of Brusaporto last year, immediately flying high on its three Michelin stars.

A sweet honeymooner's homage to Grecian gastronomy in a converted villa, marrying Shanghainese decadence and decorum. Filled with Greek imports – think hand-hewn walnut chairs, marbled columns and mod-art.
