British pizza chain comes to ChinaPizza Marzano, the British pizza chain also known as Pizza Express, has hit the Chinese market.

Fortunately for them, they've already snapped up a market scarcity: Young, hip, efficient waiters smartly bustle about the modern interior that is built around an open kitchen.

The menu is near identical to the British one, but prices only marginally cheaper (RMB 70-95).

Pizza Bufalita made use of a new cooking technique in which the mozzarella, raw tomatoes and basil are applied after the base is baked, but it didn't quite pack the Italian flavors we were craving.

Try the Peking Duck, a fusion pie that caters to local tastes. If you're in a pizza fix, Pizza Marzano will certainly do, and with its location and small outdoor seating area, it's sure to be a hit with tourists.

Location: 380 Huangpi Nan Lu, Xintiandi
