Scarpetta is a beautiful candle lit trattoria with a gourmet pizza emphasis. Scarpetta is an Italian word deeply rooted in culinary cultural history describing the action in which you take bread, and in a swirling motion, wipe your plate clean of all remaining sauce, which is exactly the message this cozy/charming Pizzeria wishes to convey. Its motto: “Simple food. Executed well. To satiate“. With nothing to hide behind, the simplest food is often the hardest.

Scarpetta’s menu brings simplicity to the table by insisting on fresh and high quality ingredients that are executed consistently to preserve and highlight the strong and crisp flavours of the seasonal products. John Liu, owner of Scarpetta Pizzeria, formerly a young investment banker originally from Greenwich Connecticut, abandoned it all to pursue his dream. With a diverse background in equity research, user experience, and branding; Liu has quickly established himself in Shanghai as a unique restaurateur. Don’t miss their truffle foie gras pizza or signature clam pizza and their creamy mentaiko pasta.
