Hong Kong’s quin­tes­sen­tial Ital­ian restau­rant Sa­ba­tini at

The Royal Gar­den has been serv­ing some of the city’s best and most au­then­tic Ital­ian fare since 1992. Now Sa­ba­tini has launched two new set din­ner menus for both first-timers and long-time reg­u­lars, fea­tur­ing a se­lec­tion of leg­endary del­i­ca­cies from the clas­sic restau­rant.

For a taste of Ital­ian sun­shine, try the Sum­mer Four-course Set Din­ner ($688 per per­son) which starts with a spread of clas­sic Ital­ian ap­pe­tiz­ers, rang­ing from Parma ham with melon to tomato and moz­zarella cheese. This is fol­lowed by a pasta or risotto dish, with op­tions such as the creamy spaghetti with cured pork cheek, or­ganic egg yolk and pecorino cheese, or lin­guine with porcini mush­room and as­para­gus.

Guests can choose from suc­cu­lent en­trées in­clud­ing the ul­tra-ten­der French spring chicken with black truf­fle sauce and gar­den veg­eta­bles, the juicy tiger prawns with spicy tomato salsa and por­to­bello mush­rooms with cheese, or Sa­ba­tini’s fa­mous char­coal grilled lamb chops.

Af­ter some­thing even more sump­tu­ous? Go for

Sa­ba­tini’s Sig­na­ture Four-course Set Din­ner ($988 per per­son) which of­fers a se­lec­tion of Ital­ian fa­vorites. Be­gin the meal with a hearty beef carpac­cio with arugula, black truf­fle and parme­san shav­ings, then con­tinue with one of their many

au­then­tic pasta and risotto dishes—such as the sig­na­ture lin­guine with scampi, clams and mus­sels—as well as one main course, like the baked Bos­ton lob­ster, cre­ated by Francesco Sa­ba­tini him­self.

Wrap up the meal with desserts, from creamy tiramisu to a light Napoleon to a St. Honoré gâteau, all served from the restau­rant’s iconic wooden trol­ley. Dig in while nightly live bands ser­e­nade you for the full Sa­ba­tini ex­pe­ri­ence.
