Yummy treats and a true feel of Italy at the new'ish restaurant Gemma on Donghu lu!
It's December time and after a super duper healthy Nutritious November I definitely feel like spoiling myself with some good dinners and wine evenings before leaving Shanghai for my Christmas holiday in Denmark.
A visit to the new restaurant Gemma just 5 minutes from our apartment has been on my list for a while and I finally got the change when getting together with some girls the other night.
Gemma is a super pretty restaurant with a high level of service and a cozy & authentic feel: The firewood pizza oven, the gelato corner, the wine room showcasing French & Italian wine and the wall projector showing scenes from old Italian movies.
Some of the treats we had were breadsticks & gourmet bread with olive paste and balsamico, firewood pizza and filling Nicoise salad with good quality tuna and crispy green beans. The quality of the ingredients here takes me back to Europe!
Gemma is on 20 Donghu lu in the vibrant area among Liquid Laundry, Sichuan Citizen, Monkey Bar etc. The place and it's atmosphere is a perfect spot for an evening with good people, good food & good catch ups!
Like most people I absolutely love the taste, feel and look of Italy and one of my favorite quotes is Italian!
