Privy 5 Overview

Share |

Fine Italian dining at it’s finest. Onion soup with wheat croutons, penne with mushrooms, and various other pastas may sound like standard fare and simple menu items but it is this old peasant food that the bourgeois have today embraced and it is as delicious as ever and reminds you of simpler times when the food was just plain good. What arrives on your plate is delicious, decadent, and divine where the food is all tasty having been made with ingredients that are sourced fresh, if not locally. The difficulty lies in some ingredients being poorer than those found in Italy. But some ingredients are better in China than even those found in Europe, leading to some very creative cooking, Italian style. Even the pasta is freshly made during the evening meals. Of the dozens of Italian restaurants in the city, freshly made pasta is said to be something of a unique selling point at this Shanghai venue.
