My wife had been looking forward to this but it turned out to be very disappointing. After being seated thereafter had to signal waiters to get attention yet the restaurant was only half full. 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

I am visiting Va Bene regularly for over 10 years and what I like the most is that the quality of food, drinks and also service have been consistent all these years. Jack the restaurant owner takes good care of his clients and some of the staff have been there for years. Chef Giuseppe visits the tables regularly to check... More

We visited VaBene Italian restaurant on recommendation from our hotel. It is situated in one of the busiest streets in Central, Hong Kong. The restaurant was quite empty when we arrived but after about half an hour it was completely full. We had Margarita cocktails to start with which were really very good indeed. The starters were grilled octopus, very... More

I was part of a group of 8 for dinner in this restaurant. The food was very good and a very comprehensive menu. The waiter was attentive, the service was very good. The atmosphere was good also. If you are in the area, and I admit there are many restaurants in this area, this one is well worth a visit.... More

After two weeks of Chinese food we were ready for a break. The JW Marriott hotel recommended VaBene. We had a great, but expensive Italian meal. The setting with the white table clothes and attentive service was just what we needed to relax and enjoy a very good (splurge) meal. We started with the artichoke appetizer…a little on the skimpy...

Really fantastic food - great quality and good service. Quite pricing and meals are expensive but the food does deliver on this. Great selection of wines as well. Worth the visit for Italian fine dining in Hong Kong.
