Having spent 2 hours trudging round Ancona to try and find an Italian restaurant, and all we could find were bars and cafes, we were getting desperate and the only restaurant we found that was open was the Shanghai. From the look of the frontage, it looks tiny, but go inside and it opens out to quite a large split level restaurant. Decor is tasteful. We were lucky in that a member of staff was an ex English teacher from Beijing, our grasp of the Italian language is quite poor, so it was helpful that she understood us. The food that we ordered arrived promptly and I can honestly say was probably the best I have tasted outside of London's China town. (I find most Chinese restaurant food too salty, but this was perfect) and topped off with some Beijing beer that I can't remember the name of. My only criticism was the toilets could have been a bit cleaner!(which is why I didn't give five stars) Would definitely go back if I'm ever in Ancona again. So don't be put off by the view from outside... Go in and eat well!!
