I stumbled upon this place while exploring Hong Kong. I grew up in NJ and truly enjoyed having a drink and enjoying the atmosphere here as a break. I didn't eat any food, however, there was happy hour and it included, what looked like a good spread of antipasta.

Great big hearty portions. Started with the caprese and king prawn scampi, and shared a pasta with lobster and some meat. Mozzarella was claimed by Tofiq to be the best in town and it didn't disappoint. King prawn scampi was delicious and highly recommended as a starter. Thank god that Tofiq provided some advice about sharing the lobster and some... More

Great atmosphere and really well balanced menu. Beautiful tomatoes - Italian style - were in the caprese salad with the best mozzarella you will eat outside of a Italy. This is s must visit.

My family loved every dish that came out. Pizza was excellent as well as the Cabrese. Their clam dish with meat sauce was surprisingly delicious. I had never seen that presentation but it was AWESOME! Kids loved every bite of food.

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
