I have been going to Angelini for six years, usually three times a year (when I am in Hong Kong). So I DO like it it. But something funny is happening, The views remain the same of course -- delightful across the harbour. The service is soothing and friendly. The wine list impossible to understand unless you are an Italian; but who cares, the staff can always find me something I like. The food on the other hand? The appetisers each year become better, and more appetising: they are usualyy brilliant. Scallops with orange sauce last time was terrific, for example. Sophisticated and delightful. The mains, by contrast are on a neandathal trajectory: bigger and bigger slabs of meat without finesse or interest, beyond their sumo like calorie count. Does this place have two kitchens? The mains belong in an (expensive!!) US burger bar, while the rest of the menu belongs where it is: at an otherwise really nice Italian eatery! I commented on the size of the mains to the chef -- he could not have cared less. Maybe because we were not doing the six course fixed menu? Puzzling! (By the way, after six years, do they remember me? No, of course not.)
