The location is great on the 29th and 30th floor, but what drive me crazy was the food. Vitello Tonnato is a must, the chef is from the region where they created this Italian Delicatessen, Burrata e Prosciutto Crudo combine the saltiness of Parma ham white the freshness of a particular kind of mozzarella. The 2 pasta dishes dishes we ordered were also fresh made. Their tiramisù was so delicious I couldn’t take the picture because couldn’t wait to try it: soft and creamy. I’m Italian and I can guarantee you, il pirata provide authentic Italian taste.

A friend recommended Pirata after having lunch their. We tried their brunch. The food concept was really good. They had a cold cut, cheese and sallad buffé to start with. Then you got three different starters to share. After you had a choice of different main courses and a dessert. During brunch, Pirata offers a free flow alternative. The food was very tasty and of good quality and the service was very attentive and friendly. This is a good option for quality italian food, with great service in a relaxed venue.

Nestled on the 30th floor, Pirata offers great views as well as food and service! The restaurant itself is very cool and is always busy, a popular place for locals and tourists alike. The Mussels, Arancini bucket and Butchers cut were all delicious. Add to that a great vibe and you’re guaranteed a great dining experience. Thanks to all the team for making our evening one to remember.

The location is good, the ambience lovely and the food very tasty.
My only complaint is that because we didn’t reserve we had to eat at the bar. There were plenty of tables with ‘reserve’ on them but even after 2 hours and 15 minutes of being there those tables were still empty. In my opinion, perhaps we should have been offered the tables and told we had, for example, 1.5 hours only. At least please give the option.
However, I certainly would go again

The restaurant is well located, it is on the 30th floor and has a great view of Hong Kong. The menu has great variety of Italian dishes. The service is excellent, we were always very well advised whether it was about the food or the wine. The wines are, for Hong Kong standards, very affordable and the choice is excellent as well. Each dish that I have tasted was outstanding (I have tasted a lot of them), they taste exactly like they do in Italy.
