Salotto G is a cozy Italian restaurant tucked in a corner on one of Shanghai’s bustling nightlife streets.
It’s a wonderful location for a date, as there are many bars in the area for after dinner drinks
Although it’s a restaurant, Salotto G has a full functioning bar, perfect for pre-dinner drinks.
Another must try at Salotto G is their signature drink, Mr.G.
It is sweeter than the Negroni with an accented citrus taste, off balanced by a cinnamon stick. It’s very girlie drink that can easily be taken as a dessert, with a taste similar to a cross breed of an Appletini and Pina Colada.
Salotto G is not your typical Italian restaurant. It is tapas styled Italian, so any cravings for a hearty family style meal better be left at the door.
Dishes are reasonable between RMB45-80, but expect nibble sized portions. If you have a dinner crowd of four, order one of their flat bread pizzas…they look absolutely delicious and filling, starting at RMB60-120 (truffles on truffles).
Recommendations will be the baked mussels with pistachio.
Location: Conveniently located for a night out.
Service: Attitude of the waitstaff and bartenders are very pleasant, although not impressive where a lasting memory is created.
Taste: Dishes in the beginning did not impress and should be opted out of the menu, but the ones that stood out were truly magnificent.
Recommendation: As a light dinner for two, perfect for date night. Not for large groups.
