“Best steakhouse for the money in Hong Kong”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

The only reason I added for the money is because the Intercontinental Hotel Steakhouse is on par but more expensive.
Bistecca is too cool. Located in Lan Kwai Fong, the funnest place to be, on a second floor hideaway, the service and ambience is superlative.
The wine list is extensive but bring a fat wallet.
The meat was surprisingly good and the cooking of it and all the sides, salads, desserts were wunderbar....
My new favorite restaurant in a town with lots of great ones.

“Tender, juicy steaks”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Had dinner here with our friends on our last night in Hong Kong. The place is located in the 2nd floor of a building in Lan Kwai Fong overlooking the corner where Hard Rock Cafe is. Ambiance is very homey, with dark wood everywhere, candle-lit tables complete the log cabin feel of the place. The steak is one of the best I've had in Hong Kong. We ordered 3 16-oz USDA Black Angus ribeye steaks and boy, were they tender and quite tasty! The steaks were huge and cooked just right, served on wooden cutting boards. We also had for starters, House Smoked Bacon with Red Pepper Ketchup(must try!), the cold cuts selection(Prosciutto, etc.) and a salad. Everything was good and the serving sizes were more than enough. Will definitely come back!

“A hidden gem.”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

This place is a little hard to find and, frankly, if you’re not a local you might struggle to find it. It’s hidden away inside what looks like an office building, but if you can find it it offers a nice atmosphere and a really excellent choice of steaks. We were taken here by an expat local and it was really great. I wouldn’t say it’s the best steak I’ve eaten – that accolade goes to Cut @ The Palazzo in Las Vegas – but it’s very good; certainly on a par with, if not better than Hawksmoor in London.

“Great Steak in Lan Kwai Fung”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

In the heat of Lan Kwai Fung, look for Bistecca if you want a good steak.
What is Italian hear are the Olive Oil & Balsamic Vinegar, otherwise the meat has nothing to do with European chewy beaf !
Make a booking & ask for a table by the windows, overlooking the crowd of Lan Kwai Fung.
The cheese plate is good way to finish your bottle of wine !

“Before they improve their service, not comin' back..”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

A friend of ours proposed this place this place as he had previous great experiences. Since he is a chef, we decided to give it a go.
It was pretty late and to avoid any inconveniences and potentially bad service/bad food, we called the restaurant - asking whether it would not be too late to come for a dinner. They gave us a green light and 20 mins later we arrived.

The food was "nice-ish" but was totally ruin (actually more like killing) the mood, was such a terrible service we had.
Despite asking in advance whether it won't be too late for them to take us, the service team was extremely rude...!!! Before we touched our steak, they pushed us to order dessert.
We kind of tolerate that, but when they decided to rudely and impatiently coming back and forth to clean all possible dishes even we're not entirely finished, was simply unacceptable.
It was nothing but bitter ending on a lovely evening with friends.

For that price category, it was definitely a waste and we left very unhappy.

Ah well, before they think of improving their service, they shouldn't consider a returning customer.
