OSTERIA DE GEMMA
DongHu Lu, Xuihui District, Shanghai, 230sqm
This cosy pizzeria and osteria is nestled into the heart of the former french concession, Shanghai.
The informal pizzeria occupies the ground floor, it’s natural hues and rustic textures warmed up by the wood fire pizza oven. Wooden crate shelves and rough-cut timber create a market feel for the products. Subtle signage and a monotone colour scheme allow for the food to be the star of the show.
Located above is Osteria de Gemma, this Italian restaurant focuses on pasta. A warm earthy colour palette with natural finishes. The space includes a bar, formal dining and a private function space. An open kitchen adds to the warm ambience, with the feature pasta room amoungst the dinners creating movement and flair.
