Privy 5 Overview

Share |

This restaurant, at 808 Changle Lu, requires an advance booking in order to dine there and for good reason as it is widely regarded as one of Shanghai's best Italian restaurants. However, as its name suggests, all the privacy anyone needs is provided for a romantic candlelit meal. The food is Italian with traditional fare such as antipasto and risotto but the clams and chicken rigatoni are two favorites. The interesting part of this restaurant is that closed door policy whereby the restaurant’s door is kept closed to guarantee privacy. Only those with a reservation can get in, making a romantic meal a cinch – all that is required is the perfect partner with whom to share the evening. The concept of a closed door policy in one of the busiest cities in the world is a welcome one. And with a garden courtyard and a glass dining room, the privacy is mitigated by the surroundings, making it a special evening and will have you hoping to come through that Closed Door again in the future.
