Otto e Mezzo

Hong Kong Tatler Best Restaurants (Hong Kong / Macau) - - Editor’s choice -

here are more than 9,200 kilo­me­tres be­tween Berg­amo and Ma­cau, the for­mer be­ing t he birth­place of ac­claimed chef Um­berto Bom­bana—the man be­hind this wildly suc­cess­ful fi ne din­ing Ital­ian restau­rant that first made it s mark i n Hong Kong. Tak­ing the helm at the Galaxy Ma­cau out­post of Otto e Mezzo is An­timo Maria Merone, a chef who's as charis­matic as his benev­o­lent men­tor.

Since the restau­rant opened in 2015, it's found its sweet spot. The heavy doors t hat used t o close off t he restau­rant t o the shop­ping cen­tre have been re­placed by more wel­com­ing glass frames, with the door­way al­ways open to guests and cu­ri­ous passers-by. It feels more i nclu­sive and more akin t o Bom­bana's style of Ital­ian hos­pi­tal­ity. The menu i s con­sis­tent, with sea­son­al­ity at its core and home­made pas­tas as it s foun­da­tion.
