Located in the heart of Shanghai, the Matto Bar and Pizzeria is the creation of entrepreneur Yenn Wong. Known for opening a slew of boutique hotels, Wong introduces Italian food lovers to an eclectic eatery that is both rustic and rugged in its design. The interior's raw finishes and elegant furniture pieces provide the space with warmth, making it cozy rather than austere.

From its Naples-imported custom pizza oven to its lived-in and comfortable feel, this memorable space has an industrial aesthetic blended with artistic touches and subtle ornamentation. The interior's mechanical elements are structural while quirky touches like blackboard walls give the space humor and personality.

Using raw materials, the Matto Bar and Pizzeria displays reclaimed woods, Italian travertine tile, raw iron and tin used for its traditional pub-inspired ceiling.
