Atto Primo

Shanghai, China

To meet Chinese consumers’ increasing appetite for fine dining options, the design of this new Shanghai restaurant integrates chef Gianluca Serafin’s deep connection to Italian culinary history with the context of the theater. “Atto primo” means first act; and the theme is deftly carried out through myriad details, from Venetian masks to engraved menu illustrations to stylish murals. Overlooking the dramatic Shanghai Pudong skyline, guests can immerse themselves in any of three distinct dining experiences – Sonetto, Drama and Satira – allowing them a different experience with each visit.
