This bar looks like you would walk into it in a neighbourhood in Milan. Love the brickwork and library of books in there. Gorgeous touches to make it feel very cosy. Delicious coffe and desserts. Great place to sit and people watch or just sit back, relax and read a book . Great wine selecions.

Being a foodie, I always like to try with new places, somehow, it makes feel in-sync with the city. Through the years I saw so many new ventures in food biz rises & falls, HongKong seems never lack of new openings, yet somehow strangely, in the end. all the young and bold and creative chose to leave, left us with...

I went to La Piola as a work colleague had recommended me to visit. They had actually told me that it would be an expensive eat out but that the food was good. I had some ravioli with beef ragu. The food was very good but definitely not worth the price I paid. In terms of quantity served, the dishes... More

I went for food and drink to this place, staff were in hurry, rude and very pushy. The supervisor was cold and unfriendly. It is seems to favour certain type of people only.

It is with great joy readers, that I bring to you one of my very favourite spots in Hong Kong…… La Piola is the offspring of a brilliant Italian mind called Enrico. Barely scraping the big 40, he set up this bar/restaurant over three years ago and in that time it has become famous for it’s aperitif culture. As you... More

We went there when the lunch and late afternoon menu was on, so we just had some panini. They were perfect for a good meal in between and really delicious, especially for being so far away from Italy. I got an Aperol Spritz, which was the best I had in Asia so far, and it was huge, so definately worth... More

We visited La Piola on a recent trip to HK and had a great meal. As a family of italian origin, we were seriously impressed on both our visits. The menu is authentic, and great quality, and the wine list authentic. All our food was superb. We also went back for aperitivi one evening (late afternoon drinks), and they put... More

Good food overall. Service was good. Wine selection excellent. Not five star but well worth a visit. Excellent cheese platters! The lava chocolate cake in the end is great, but please do add real raspberry for a complete experience.

Overall we had a great evening out. After a few days of Asian food and before heading out of HK to other parts of Asia, we wanted something Western. Tripadvisor lead us to La Piola. Great Spritz's. Last time I had this good of a Spritz, we were skiing in the Aosta valley. Just fabulous. Starters good, especially the ham... More
