T.Dining by Hong Kong Tatler - - Casual -

This ca­sual restau­rant with live cook­ing sta­tions opened by the ven­er­a­ble Um­berto Bombana (of Otto e Mezzo) evokes the gourmet food halls of Europe—or at least the best it can in a mall set­ting in Hong Kong. It’s a one-stop shop for all your Ital­ian crav­ings, what­ever the time of day and the ca­sual, lively set­ting with open kitchens makes it a good choice din­ing in a group. The food is well ex­e­cuted and for any­one with a crav­ing for Ital­ian, it will hit the spot. Por­tion sizes are gen­er­ous and in most cases, good to share, es­pe­cially the plates of fresh pasta, made in-house, and crisp piz­zas, made with dough fer­mented over 36 hours, mak­ing it pop­u­lar with groups for var­i­ous oc­ca­sions—from fam­ily din­ners, to team lunches, to re­laxed dates. Beau­ti­fully puffed and crispy, the pizza dough fer­mented over 36 hours makes a great base for any­thing, es­pe­cially the sausage in the pic­cante, which has just a hint of spice to keep things ex­cit­ing. For a full din­ner how­ever, the prices do add up (and dur­ing white truf­fle sea­son, they can seem pos­i­tively scan­dalous) and it can seem a lit­tle pricey given the laid­back set­ting. Wine lovers won’t be dis­ap­pointed, with their ex­ten­sive and well-selected list of mostly Ital­ian bot­tles, many of which are rea­son­ably priced.
