Assaggio Trattoria Italiana (Hong Kong)

mascato wine bavaroise with caramelized peaches

We all have our stories to tell, be they romantic, humorous or just plain horrific. The point is, similar to food, stories are meant to be told and shared. Located inside the Hong Kong Arts Centre, this Italian Trattoria with views overlooking the harbour is a story of mixed emotions. By day, the dining room is flooded with natural sunlight and by night, the dimly lit atmosphere gives off such a seductive vibe that it’s hard not to imagine yourself as Giacomo Casanova having supper by the window.

The above is how I started off with my recent restaurant review for Time Out Hong Kong on this new Italian Trattoria. The approach is somewhat different compared with my usual style because it was a special dinner to me in every aspects. As for the food, it was rather disappointing to say the least, but how so?

I'm liking your new writing style! Turning over a new leaf in so many ways (or turning over many leaves?), add oil!
