  • great spot for a business lunch, and the pastas are all made in house! Bombana amazes his customers with creative italian dishes that are unique in Hong Kong.
  • Best Italian restaurant and is less pricey than hotel restaurants (probably because it's located inside a business building rather than a hotel)
  • The only 3-Michelin starred Italian restaurant outside of Italy, they've picked up the Readers' Choice Must-try Michelin Star Award at the 2013 Foodie Forks!
  • Try the Black Truffle Ice Cream - Cream cheese, mixed dries nutes
  • Love the bone-in steak for two - always perfectly cooked - don't miss the bones!
  • One of the only place in town for three star food, we love it!
  • Look out for their white truffle menu in the winter. Absolutely to die for. The trio chocolate desert is also a killer. Be prepared to make resv well in advance as it gets fully booked all the time.
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • 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!
  • Best italian ever...
  • Need to know the chef to ask for his specialty.
  • Good food, but service sucks
  • Wonderful service. Am 6 months pregnant and as soon as I sat down, the waiter arrived with a cushion for my back. Have the lemon tart with blood orange sorbet... Divine!!
  • White truffles in season! Yum!
  • Tasting Menu was awesome along with paired wines. Though not cheap!
  • Three Michelin Stars. The tasting menu is full of fun dessert twists. Truffle season is in November.
  • Octopus was good, everything else was ok at best
