    3 girls at the front but still could not do a decent job, no smiles at all. Courses was not served together as a table. Food was decent but I've had better so really dunno where the 3 stars come from.

    Ignore the fact they it is expensive, hard to book and full with flashy douchebags. Just enjoy the really good food. Not as good during lunch.

    Overrated unless the chef personally takes care of you. Then it is truly an experience to remember

    Milanese cottolette (veal) is the best, can't leave without having this. Bombana is famous for his risotto, ruffle, pasta- everything as he picks best & fresh ingredients. 8 1/2 Macau just opened!

    The truffle pasta is superb with a very generous serving of truffle. Sit at the bar for a more casual meal. Love their veal Milanese. They also make excellent cocktails!

    Pasta was tad bit too hard; the confit "taiyouren" organic egg was so good; the beef cheek melted in my mouth; impressed by the dessert. order the house red wine! Great lunch and great company

    Tried the tasting menu but the taste of dishes didn't have a wow factor.. Amazing steak sirloin though! Crispy on the outer. Cooked just right. The sauce won't takeover the fresh juicy taste of steak.

    Seared red tuna, goes extremely well with tomato and citrus emulsion.

    It was tasty but not really $200-tasty IMO. Actually nice service, too bad it only opens at 6:30

    The BEST Italian restaurant in Asia,need to try cottolette Milanese, still mouth watering after having this over & over. Pasta with white truffle is out of this world!

    One of the best Italian restaurants. 1st came when they just opened. Friendly staff. I even got a tour of their amazing kitchen. Best seafood pasta I ever had in HK. Must try, if u can get a table!

    Small portion, complicated and deep taste. It is experience, not just food. Very good service.

    Ilya Belikin · September 9, 2014
  • Sarah T.

    Best Italian restaurant and is less pricey than hotel restaurants (probably because it's located inside a business building rather than a hotel)

    Sarah Tsang · August 16, 2014
  • Christina Z.

    Super generous with the truffle in their risotto. Better than the tagliolini, but pretty heavy.

    Great Italian restaurants indeed. Must reserve tables in advance. Truffle with eggs, truffle spagetti, jamon, lemon tart, soufflé, chocolate are yummy indeed.

    Best Italian food in Asian! Try the famous cottoletta! Take one portion to share as it is quite a good size portion and save your appetite for dessert!
