8½ Otto e Mezzo BOMBANA Shanghai

8½ Otto e Mezzo BOMBANA Shanghai opened on the Rockbund in 2012 by Italian Chef par excellence Umberto BOMBANA. Hailed as the “King of White Truffles”, the internationally acclaimed chef is known as a champion of honest cooking, great produce and attention to service.

Heading the restaurant in Shanghai is Lombardy-born Executive Chef Gabriele Delgrossi. His unrivalled talent and passion for Italian cuisine, coupled with 3 years of living in China, gives him an enriched insight to interpret local ingredients with a unique Italian flair. The restaurant has been awarded two Michelin stars since 2017 in the Michelin Guide Shanghai.

“To be recognized by the Guide is certainly a praise of the highest calibre,” Delgrossi says. In addition to a sense of elation, I now feel a drive to do even better. Chef BOMBANA warned that guests will now expect even more after our Michelin honour. Therefore, I will continue to pour my passion into my favourite place in the world, the kitchen, and strive to scale higher heights.”
