The food here is not at all authentic, and only mediocre for "american pasta". The place is super casual, bordering on ugly, and the atmosphere is noisy. We waited ages between courses for our food. Would not recommend this place.

Today is my first visit to Linguini Fini, after the great reviews I heard about this place. Well, it is NOT a place for fine dining and it feels more like a trattoria, serving good wholesome itlalian food. It can get noisy especially on the second floor. If you want to talk business and have a good chat, please request for the ground floor. The location is at the L Place. Very very central and right by the escalator.

The pasta here is awesome because it is freshly made: both basic pasta and infused pasta (eg. dried shrimp, salt cured egg and fragrant grass). There is a springy freshness to the pasta and it is cooked al dente.The sauce is made from organic ingredients. Awesome & very flavourful. Everything here is made from scratch. You can imagine how hard the kitchen has to work to bring the wholesome food on your table.

Our server is Gina. She is EXCELLENT. She noticed that we are firsts-time visitors and made it a point to explain to us Linguini Fini's dining concepts and specialities. She has great eye contact and great energy & enthusiam. It is noteworthy that there is no service charge and the service personnel work for their tips, but Gina comes across as authentic and even if there is service charge built-in, she'd be deserving of a tip. She is instrumental in making the entire visit pleasureable.

I will visit Linguini Fini again.

This is a really nice place to have an evening meal with drinks. The chef really knows what he's doing, I could taste his experience and passion.

I have been to Linguini Fini a few times for lunch and dinner. Nice cozy atmosphere with a retro touch.

They serve feshly made mozzarella but sometimes sold out quickly. You may want to preorder it at reservation. About their linguini, I wouldn't say it isn't as finely made as I would like but it isn't bad. It is a good choice to have catch up dinner with friends.

I love al dente, flavorsome and fresh pasta. Linguini Fini offers all that. If there is a pointif criticism, the linguini were too oily.The setting is decent,plain concrete type of on temporary look with a large centre bar.Generous seating and decent service. Not a romantic Italian a la Va Bene in Hong Kong but a decent spot for a bowl of pasta.
