La Piola bar in Central area in Hong Kong is a good bar. It is in a corner on a busy street and there is seating both outside and inside. We were served complimentary bite-sized snacks which was good. We ordered some cold cuts and cheese and that turned out to be quite good too. Staff is friendly and service... More

My husband and I went here for lunch and had the set-menu. For £18 each (UK money), this included a buffet starter (lovely fresh salad leaves, tomatoes etc, cold meats, spinach muffins), followed by a main course (choice of veggie pasta, fish or meat) followed by a hot drink or the Chef's Dessert. We had the dessert, which was a... More

This used to be one of my favorite places in HK, good quality for aperitivo's snacks, nice environment and prices in the average of the city. In the last year the quality of the food used for snacks has decreased a lot, many times food taste old and dry, especially pizza is often poor of garnishment and little burned on... More

We decided to stop here for a drink while we tried to locate another bar in the area but instead we ended up staying here for a couple of hours. The bar has a good selection of wines and spirits and has a nice buzzy atmosphere (we visited on a Sunday afternoon). The drink prices are average for Hong Kong... More

We went for dinner, kids were satisfied with the steak and the spaghetti, but the rest was a disappointment. The beef ragout appeared to be nothing more than mince with packet pasta, served as a main in a size smaller than a typical starter. The beef cheek was presented well, but lacked both flavour and texture. Service was above average.... More

Walking through Soho area around lunchtime I stumbled upon this bar/restaurant and went on in. It was Sunday and clearly Hongkongers eat later than me. I arrived 1pm to an empty restaurant (though there were patrons in the bar), which isn't normally a good sign. However as I sat and ate it started to fill up and there were few... More

Visited La Piola for a drink and Apertivo on a recent weekday. It is a pleasant restaurant with subdued/ruatic atmosphere and decor, friendly staff, and extensive (and authentic) Italian menu. They even have a traditional Italian Apertivo (happy hour, food buffet) which reminded me of Florence. While definitely on the pricey side (especially cocktails), we enjoyed the visit.

Didn't eat but sat down for some much needed drink and r&r. Really nice place and great location. Really loved the outside bar, no risk of missing the street life. Well worth a visit.

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
