This airy Pudong restaurant, with a terrace overlooking the river, serves the city's best classic Neopolitan pizzas from a wood-fired oven (they're also available at Issimo). The divine margherita (128RMB) comes with large circles of fresh mozzarella, sprinkles of basil and pools of olive oil, with a slightly crisp but lushly dough-y crust. The calabrese (148RMB) – eggplant, spicy salami, chilli flakes, pepper, mozzarella and basil – is slightly spicy and exquisitely textured. Cuomo won the top award at the world pizza championships in Naples.
