“we love Italy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

...... pleasant room with a winemaker and other friends! and 'everything was excellent, the original appetizers and pasta made true Italian style inn ... For me Spaghetti with garlic, olive oil, chili, anchovies and Cauliflower ... I found this fabulous dish in its simplicity! My guests have tasted the tiramisu' and there were fascinated by the presentation (in a cup of cappuccino) and the goodness .. W Italy!

“Great food at reasonable price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

After a long day of meeting, all participants went to this restaurant to enjoy the fruit we planted with a year of hard work.

the location of this restaurant is not particularly convenient, however when you get in and see the harbour view from within the restuarant, it is worthwhile to take 15 minutes walking from Admiralty MTR station to the restaurant.

with a group of 10+ persons, it is possible to try as many dishes as possible, and yet, since we tried so many (pizza, ham, meat platter, pasta, dishes from the grill, dessert, etc), I could only comment on a few that stay in my mind.

Prosciutto and salami with figs
I'm not an expert of choosing dried hams, however i'm lucky enough to have the chances to try different kinds of hams from different origin in different places in Europe. I would say the Chef's choice is really nice. Well-balanced lard content, not too salty, and I particularly enjoy the accompanying sweetened figs.

Grilled angus beef - medium
all i remembered is "WOW"! for Its excellent taste, its superb texture, and its size

Pizza, pasta and desserts are generally good, and matches their price range, however to me they are not exceptional.

Anyone who misses Italian crusine they had tried in Italy should come here. it won't be disappointing.

“Excellent food & wine selection, friendly staff and reasonable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

I’ve used Giando many times in the past with the family (2 kids), with friends and for also for business purposes. It fulfilled all requirements. There is a large selection of excellent dishes and wines and all together very reasonable priced. Special requests for this and that are absolutely not a problem. The view is nice and the staff was always friendly. Valet parking, especially with kids or business friends, a big plus! T.

“Giando - Pasta cooked to a perfection (+fantastic view)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

Okay, okay, There must be hundreds of places in HK competing for the best view. Giando, located in the fleet arcade, has a nice undertone - view is fantastic without being "look at me I'm at 60th floor" type of location. Yes, not the easiest place to find and not the easiest to get a taxi back.

But I truly believe you go there for food and wine. And given an opportunity I would come back again and again. My zuccini and clams pasta was heaven - sea flavours and pasta cooked to perfection. We also tried ricotta cheese ravioli with light tomato sauce - excellent. Burrata cheese and cold cuts were excellent and fresh. Children enjoyed pizza. Wine list is extensive and represents 17 regions of Italy. You can find really nice wines there.

Service was a little bit of hit and miss. Some of the guys were excellent looking after us well, entertaining our children and all. other less so - my pasta arrived while I was half way through my started; guy at the door couldn't help with taxi (and it was raining!). But then again - this were minor inconveniences as food and wine compensated it all.

Did I mention the view?

“Giando - you have to be a detective to find it but the food is superb”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

Perhaps finding it is half the fun but it is tricky to find. The food is very good we had a great asparagus risotto from the specials and superb sea bass in salt crust that was moist and perfectly cooked with some great potatoes on the side. The cod was excellent and so too was the steak. The decor is not as glamorous as it needs to be to set off the food but it is ok. The chef is ex Isola and is attracting a cosmopolitan sophisticated crowd (those that can find the place!). Definately recommend for the food and the fact that the head chef/owner Gianni, comes round to talk to you. Go see if you can find it. There is valet parking. Great authentic Italian food and excellent Italian wine list
