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

Four girls went on a Saturday night and ate a very good spread. The set meal was the only option - $400 for two courses. There was lots of variety within the set menu, buffalo salad, cold cuts, or bruschetta for starter; rabbit, snapper fish, lasagne for main Etc. the host and wait or takes you through it all in depth. He's very much. Part of your meal - he cut my good for me at one point - but it's homely, friendly and v Italian. continue reading

After hearing so much about this restaurant with the volatile chef, my friend and I decided to give it a try. It was a mistake, as the chef was extremely rude to us the moment we walked in. I asked for butter for my bread and he proceeded to lecture me on why butter is inferior to oil. Hey, I don't need a lesson about how I eat my bread! He seems to have a problem with strong women, as he kept muttering that we should not be dining at his restaurant. When it comes to paying the bill, I presented my credit card, but only to be told off severely - cash only. Dining at this restaurant is like playing russian roulette. If the chef likes you, great. If not, be prepared to have an very unplesant evening. He chased a French guy out of the restaurant after heaping a string of verbal abuses! The verdict? There is great Italian food elsewhere and at restaurants that you don't need to feel stressed. Avoid this place. continue reading
