We had a very enjoyable meal at Va Bene and we'd happily return on another visit. The menu was small but offered sufficient variety and without too many cliched Italian dishes. The staff were great, both attentive and well informed about the food and wine.

A hkg local resident took me. Had a great time. Very good service. Being a vegetarian was happy to see atleast some options. We had ordered a pizza and a gnocchi, both were very good. The minestrone soup was average. A strictly vegetarian friend had no option for desert so they gave him a fruit platter with ice-cream, it was... More

This is my 3rd visit over a 4 year period. While eating Italian food may seem a little odd in this city, I defend the choice resolutely. It is an oasis in the middle of the Lan Kwai Fong nightlife hot spot, serving excellent food with a good selection of imported Italian wines. The choice of wine by the glass... More

I had turbot which was covered with a one cm thick covering of tomato sauce which completely obscured the flavour of the Turbot. My wife had... More
