“Good but could be better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

Location of Al Molo, overlooking the Harbor and right next to the 'Star Ferries', could not be better. Food and service, good but not outstanding, could improve with a small effort on behalf of managment. We certainly ate in Hong Kong in better Italian restaurants than Al Molo and were expecting more from the place, both in choices included in the Menu; and in the quality of the meal. We felt as if the Chef was resting in its laurels! The wine list, albeit short, was very good!

“Food food, but the service......”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

Last night I went to this restaurant for the 1st time. It was choosen, because we wanted to sit outside (2 people wanted to smoke). Unfortunately it would probably start to rain, so we got a table inside. It was a shame we could not enjoy the stunning view og Hong Kong skyline and harbour. The location is great and it is easy to find. The food and wine was absolutely spot on, but the service was almost not existing. Drinks, wine, water, food etc. came in a crazy random order, but I will not even get started on mentioning examples. They just managed to do so many things wrong. However we got everthing in the end and the food and drink experience was great. I will go again and will be prepared to the lack of service.

“Avoid!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013 via mobile

We have been to many Italian restaurants all over the world. This must be one of the worst! Bad service. After 15 minutes we had to call a waiter to take our drinks order. Main courses served while some in party still busy with starters. Empty starter plates still on table as they try to squeeze the main courses onto the table. Plates for hot main courses COLD. Average food, but NOT average prices. Prime location but view was obscured by condensation.....avoid!

“Bad qaulity of food, poor and bad service and crazy prices.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

Went there for a business lunch in Kowloon areaa. First of all no one escort my guest and me to any table. The food on the buffet waspoor and nothing specail. So many cooks for so less food. Ther serivice was even worst...no one take from our table the dirty plates for more than 30 minutes or pour us the water and the vine for all the lunch, there were planty of servers running without doing nothing.On the floor there wasn't the presence of any Manger handeling the things, just when we went away i saw sitted on a table in the center of the room a man in front of a laptop, that i presume be the Manager, instead to do his job in so busy hours. Bigger Surprise was the very expensive check we had.I will not come back in this place and of course i don't raccomand it.
