I find that within the Divino Group of restaurants, each venue actually has their own strong points. Over here the Chef and Manager are so knowledgeable about global foods and wines - in fact within the whole line up, I found here to have the most rarer to find Italian wine grapes or exotic bottles. On top of that, their Lasagna is absolutely adorable and non of those fancy recipes with wagyu beef or thin layered versions that taste nothing like the real thing you crave in winter! Here its a good rustic recipe with a PROPER WHITE BECHAMEL sauce and very meaty ragu.
Aperitivo Hour Free Food -
Order a wine and you get some free hams and frittata to eat, along with some tempura items. These are not bad, but I definitely prefer the Goggia versions which I have just posted about and belongs to the same group !
Lasagna No. 2 – $158
The lasagna is very rich and has a good white bechamel sauce as well, unlike most of the crap versions around town with only tomato sugo being passed off as lasagna. You can taste the spice and herbs cooked into the meat ragu, and then it's slightly gratinated finished with cheese on top. 8/10 to 9/10
Roast Italian 'Vallespluga' Game Hen with Fries and Salad - $178
The imported Italian chicken is rubbed with herbs and roasted. The flavour was good but this particular one was slightly dryish nearer the breast but hopefully it was just a once off problem. 6/10
Grilled Sicilian King Prawns with Sardinian Fregola & Spicy Sausage - $238
The Sicilian sourced prawns were packed with flavours, it seems like not only are their Red Prawns which carry this trait. In fact these prawns were better than a lot of the stuff we get out there. Worked well with the fregola and slight kick in the spicy sausage. ~ 8/10
Sicilian Cannoli - $88
These are a modernized recipe and presented like cones. The filling of ricotta with candied fruits and pistachio was done very well and paired with a coffee sauce. You get pretty poor Cannoli in Hong Kong in general but this modernised version was definitely very enjoyable. ~ 8/10
The Food here was quite enjoyable,
the Chef and Manager/Sommelier had a real passion for food as well. And if you want a good authentic tasting lasagna this is probably the only place I can recommend for now.
