Italian restaurant in Wanchai - worth a visit

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... read 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

Great selection of food and well cooked . We arrived at 8.45 and didn't get a sweet as it was closing at 9.30 but as we were full it mattered not . Well worth trying

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.

Very convenient when you want to eat at 9.45 pm. Pizza are good: the prosciutto e funghi is very tasty. the garlic bread is surprising... the service is good. Price seems to be a little high.

An excellent Italian in Hong Kong. On the first floor of Novotel Century you have to go through the Hotel restaurant but it is worth. Fantastic pasta and fresh Vongole . The Carpaccio also very good and decoration very Italian.

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.
