Stop here you won't regret it, BECAUSE THIS IS HONG KONG. Whether you want the prefect pasta cooked to perfection (a rack of lamb, veal which I haven’t tried but saw those who enjoyed immensely), or, start with the perfect bottle of wine for a large party or a glass of single malt. Have a salad or some delicious cheese... More

Last weekend celebrated friend's birthday in LKF, we randomly picked Va Bene. Once we get inside to the restaurant, we were immediately greeted very warmly and friendly welcome. When we were reading the menu, the manager came over a bit of small talk, he helped us to plan our menu. Even the chef!!! came to us to discuss the details... More

The quality of food was outstanding and the service very good, attentive and personal. We had Carpaccio as a starter, Pizza (best I had in Hong Kong) and Pasta as our main dish. We finished the dinner with Tiramisu as our dessert which fortunately wasn't drowned in alcohol or too sweet which is often the case. Don't know when the... More

Absolutely the best Italian restaurant in Hong Kong from pasta to steak. It's amazing and not over priced. A decent wine menu as well. The atmosphere is great and the food is beyond great. Don't miss this gem!!!

I've been going to Va Bene since the 90s and it has undergone a couple of renovations and relocations. I'm happy to see that it's kept its consistency with the menu, ambience and service. I particularly like their pizza and pasta dishes.

We have eaten at Va Bene for years, and have held a private company party for about 18 people in their private dinning room off of the main dinning room for the last two years. The service is outstanding -- very friendly and attentive team! And the food was superb. I highly recommend Va Bene if you are looking for... More

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
