Great basic Italian executed well. Risotto was excellent. Quite pricy, especially the wine. Staff were friendly and the decor suited the experience well.

We had dinner here on our first evening in Hong Kong and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The ambiance was lovely - relaxed sophistication probably best sums it up. The food was excellent with manageable portions, beautifully presented Both the Risotto Marinara and the Penne Puttanesca were full of flavour and most enjoyable. We will definitely return next...

We had rather high expectations from this restaurant, however, we were utterly disappointed. All of the dishes during our dinner were bland, the service was slow and unaccommodating and the atmosphere was lacking. Can't recommend this place at all.

The Restaurant located on the same floor as the Hotel Buffet - and is pleasantly located on the street side. The Italian menu was authentic and reasonably priced. The dishes were pleasant - and hand made gnocchi were a treat. There was a good wine selection and reasonably priced for a restaurant. The service was very attentive. friendly and professional.

After a busy afternoon at the Lunar New Year Fair and nearby playgrounds in Causeway Bay, the youngest member of our party requested spaghetti for our evening meal. Since a tram ride was also requested we travelled to this restaurant in Wan Chai. After all the crowds, we found this restaurant peacefully quiet, with a pleasant decor. The service was... More

There was a variety of desserts and all tasted good. The two main courses my friend and I ordered were just of moderate quality and the food was cold. It was not pleasant to have cold meat especially during cold weather.

Neighbourhood Profile
Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centres of Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and restaurants, both areas are bustling with people – tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart. Beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye – find boutique stores in the above ground floors of buildings and wander into side streets to find interesting restaurants and shops tucked away from the main roads. Wan Chai especially has experienced a modern revival in recent times, with an influx of trendy restaurants and bars around the Star Street area. In addition, both areas contain many of Hong Kong’s iconic tourist attractions worthy of your visit.
