Right in the heart of Causeway Bay you’ll find a little piece of Italy in the form of Basilico, an Italian restaurant and grill located on the 9th floor of the Circle Tower on Tang Lung Street. A haven for Hong Kong’s Italian cuisine lovers, Basilico serves up everything from pizza to classic pasta dishes, freshly-prepared salads and grilled meat and seafood, all cooked completely from scratch by the team of expert chefs. Whether it is for lunch or dinner, a trip to Basilico is always a good idea – just remember to book ahead to guarantee a table.
With its sleek and stylish decor and menu of both traditional and modern Italian cuisine, Basilico is bringing a piece of Rome or Milan to Hong Kong’s Causeway Bay. We recommend starting off by sharing some small antipasti dishes like the green grilled scallops (risotto cooked in pea puree topped with pan-fried scallops and lemon butter sauce) or the crispy calamari, before tucking in to your main course. Pizza lovers will be delighted with the array of authentic Italian pizzas on the menu, like the decadent prosciutto de parma topped with mozzarella, egg wash, mushrooms, oregano, parma ham and arugula.
Other delicious choices include a range of rustic pasta dishes, from penne arrabiata to seafood marinara, as well as mouthwatering grilled meat and seafood. Finish off with a cocktail or two, or some dolci like the traditional tiramisu or the vanilla panna cotta – bellissimo!. Located in the heart of Causeway Bay, Basilico is the go-to place for a relaxing Italian meal in this buzzing area of Hong Kong. You’ll find it located on the 9th floor of the Circle Tower on Tang Lung Street, a short walk from Causeway Bay Station and the Causeway Bay Plaza.
