Escobar, the friendly owner sat us down in seconds. The place was buzzing, which is always great. The food was authentic, no fuss italian. The best I have had in Hong Kong. The owner entertains and enthralls throughout the evening, some might find this off putting, to us its all part of the experience. The place had no menus and he merely said, what do you want, fish, pasta, meat, risotto, i can make it all. And make it all he did. We had a delicious antipasta to start, a plate of truffle risotto each and some cooked fish as a main in between our bottle of red wine. Service was typically sharp and efficient, mood was great and we left without a hassle. Cash only and 500 a head for this amount of food - You wont find better in HK.  continue reading

We were actually looking for a restaurant to go into in the Sheung Wan area. Uninspired by what we were seeing as we walked around we eventually chanced upon Il Moro. At the time there were about 7 people in the restaurant: all one party although obvious they were waiting for more and they eventually numbered 15. Despite there being so few people in the restaurant the place was already buzzing and most of the buzz was coming from the waiter/owner/chef.The plan is simple you pay HK$350 and you get 3 courses and choose your starter(most people will choose the excellent antipasti misti) and then either a pasta/risotto dish or something more substantial like a lamb stew. The meal finishes with a dessert.Yes it is simple, although the food is very tasty, but do not go along expecting to have a quiet dinner as you will be wasting your time. It will not be a quiet dinner and you will have something more than a dining experience, you will have Il Teatro.Wines are very good and very cheap for the quality they are. There is also a story with every wine as they are personally imported by the owner.This is a singular restaurant that many HK diners will not like: it's not a place for shrinking violets. This is a restaurant for people who want to eat good food but have an exciting experience. If sterile restaurants where there is no engagement with the staff is for you then this is not your thing. As it was we had one of our best and most memorable evenings out in HK (been here 4 years).A great experience. We'll be back. continue reading

We went there at around 12 and they are closing but the chef still provided us a nice wine. He kindly picked romantic songs and light for us.The wine tastes pretty good and well worth the price.The environment is also very good.It's a very unique experience in Hong Kong.I'd love to go again continue reading
