Fodor's Review

Spearheaded by Umberto Bombana (the former executive chef of the Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong and often lauded as the best Italian chef in Asia), this glitzy space delivers everything it promises. The service is crisp, the wine list is extensive, and the interior is nothing less than glamorous. Most importantly, the authentic Italian food is magnificent. Bombana’s famed handmade pastas live up to the hype; the cavatelli with shellfish ragout and sea urchin is particularly delicious. The mains are also solid—the Tajima short rib and beef tenderloin is excellently executed, but the seafood options fare even better. If you can’t make up your mind, the degustation menu offers a neat sampling of Bombana’s best.
