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

To celebrate my few days in the land of the US$300/night budget hotel, thought I'd splurge at a nearby Italian. Good atmosphere, good crowd at the bar, but frankly although the food's reasonable, someone's making a pretty penny out of it. Starter of Tuscan bean soup. Rustic, nice, but underseasoned. Absolutely not a patch on "peasant" soups of Andalucia like... More

The pasta is to die for and the kitchen pays special attention to quality products and freshness. The establishment is lively and feels rooted in their Central neighborhood location.

Unfortunately we cannot comment on the food as we had another tapas bar on our schedule. We did stop for a glass of wine and were immediately taken by the atmosphere the staff and the service.
