Nice food - bit pricey

Restaurant located behind the main hotel restaurant, so you have to walk through hotel restaurant to get to it. Nice food and atmosphere, gentle staff but for what we had thought it was a bit pricey, but then again it's in the hotel so very convenient and the food was good.

Great place, good food and excellent service. The only issue is that it is right next to the hotel Buffet restaurant, which means they sometimes over flow diners from the Buffet into the Italian restaurant, which is not very nice!

A bistro sort of atmosphere but Italian food that doesn't disappoint. A mix of hotel and local clientele. Service unassuming and friendly. Quiet and some booths for privacy if that's what you want. Fair range of menu choices and wine to accompany meal. Not convinced that the "Pepino" story of the founder adds any credibility - bit corny - but... More

My relatives were staying at Novotel and we all have Accor Card (50% off). They also needed a place to have a relaxing meal after check out and before going to airport. So, Pepino's was an ideal choice especially given the good reviews from Tripadviser. The verdict - this is not really fine dining, more of a bistro but pricing... More

First time I write on trip advisor because really would like to recommend an Italian restaurant in HK with delicious authentic Italian cuisine, reasonable price and good atmosphere: Pepino of Novotel Hong Kong Century in Wanchai. It has been one of my best favorite restaurants already for several years, even when my husband and I are staying in Shanghai now,... More

This is a great restaurant where you can find both veg and non veg! I loved their dish with mozarella and tomato. It was out of the world! Try for the pasta or just for the dish I mentioned!

The pasta and pizza were so good. Atmosphere was also good, warm and attentive. Dessert is a must to complete the meal. Reasonably priced, convenient location on the 1st floor of the Novotel Century Hotel.

Staying in Wan Chai / Causeway Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centers of Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and restaurants, both areas are bustling with people – tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart. Beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye – find boutique stores in the above ground floors of buildings and wander into side streets to find interesting restaurants and shops tucked away from the main roads. Wan Chai especially has experienced a modern revival in recent times, with an influx of trendy restaurants and bars around the Star Street area. In addition, both areas contain many of Hong Kong’s iconic tourist attractions worthy of your visit.
