Bella Vita Bistrò Description

The fourth (yup, you read that correctly, fourth) China outpost of Bella Vita opened in mid-October as a split-level Italian bistro plus expansive, sunny 24-seater patio in Hengshan Fang. After the inaugural location kicked off in Tianjin in 2011, owner and Italian native Samuele Rossi (previously Chef de Cuisine at Grand Hyatt Beijing and Executive Sous Chef MGM Macau) expanded next into Florentia Village in Pudong. 2019 saw Bella Vita grow into its Foshan digs, while the newest addition in downtown Shanghai features an emphasized ‘foodie focus.’ Think imported, high-end ingredients, homemade everything (pretty much a requirement for opening a successful Italian restaurant in Shanghai these days) and a lofty 70+ bottle Italian wine list spanning entry to expert palates (and price points to match). 

The conventional, pan-Italian menu is curated by chef Andrea Botti, a man who left the Maldives to move to Shanghai this past summer for Bella Vita. If leaving one of the most beautiful places on Earth doesn’t demonstrate utter dedication to deliver the absolute best, we don’t know what does. 

Aside from traditional Italian cuisine and wine, the menu also showcases a lineup of Italian aperitifs and cocktails, designed by Italian bartender Filippo Sanchi (The Rosewood Hotel, Guangzhou), available all day. From business lunch specials to the soon-to-launch afternoon tea sets to evening libations, Bella Vita covers all of the promised bistro bases.
