The Kennedy Town corner of Hong Kong is slowly growing its reputation for great restaurants among the city’s foodie fans. In what was one of the city’s sleepiest districts, a number of great restaurants have sprung up in recent years offering everything from sushi to pizza. At Bresola, on Catchick Street, there’s Italian food with splashes of other western influences to bring diners a chic, relaxed dining experience in this part of town.
Bresola is a tiny neighbourhood restaurant in Hong Kong’s Kennedy Town serving up generous
plates of Italian food in this foodie corner of town. The food is classic Italian, but disposes of the
pizza/pasta dichotomy in favour of a more nuanced approach, including plenty of interesting
meat dishes. This Catchick Street holeinthewall, moments from the coast offers a refreshing
perspective on this classic cuisine for foodies in Hong Kong.
Finding a great restaurant in Kennedy Town is getting easier and easier. A number of great new places have made themselves known to the eatingout population, but perhaps quiet, little Bresola has missed out on the fanfare. An unassuming, tiny restaurant on Catchick Street, this is a Hong Kong restaurant that combines great food, classic flavours and generous portions. This winning combination is proving popular with fans of Italian food that are bored of menus of fauxItalian pizzas and overcooked pasta. At Bresola, diners can expect a considered menu of great Italian dishes that doesn’t rely on tired cliched ideas about the food from lo stivale.
A cozy place with good quality food and nice atmosphere. Manager is very friendly and welcoming. I will come again.
As a fitst timer ti the restaurant, we truly enjoyed it and vowed to return. Food is prepared a la minute so its really worth the wait! Friendlly service and great atmosphere!
Rohan is a very welcoming host and makes us feel very comfortable and enjoyable all the time. Food is great and reasonably priced. We've ordered appetiser misto, linguine Vongole, pork and rib-eye beef steak - all using fresh and good quality ingredients and cooked right. Highly recommended.
The food was amazing. They use fresh ingredients and each dish is made from scratch once the order is placed. Atmosphere is cozy and super friendly owner.
It's a nice little shop. I like the tall front door/windows and it adds a bit of Hong Kong feel to it when trams are passing by, especially during night time. For the food, Sesame Coated Tuna is a must order. I like dishes come out hot. Pizza was great. We had Pepperoni Pizza and the cheese was hot and melty and delicious. Chicken Toscano was also good and the meat was tender, not dry and rough like many other restaurants. Staff was very attentive and nice.
I have a remarkable night woth my girlfriend. It's highly recommended to have a dinner with your friends or another half. The atmosphere is nice.
Very friendly service in this little cosy restaurant. The pork chop was great, retaining its juiciness. The tuna steak was also fantastic, served with wasabi sauce and not overly done.
A very well prepared meal that deserves a high score. Better Italian food both for Hong Kong as for elsewhere. Recommended.
Dishes tend to be expensive for lunch, so are wines for their respective categories. An ordinary beef burger was $199 and the beef was too cooked.
Nice People but not more than a nice try when it comes to food. Place is a bit smelly as there's no proper ventilation in the kitchen.
