Fine Italian cuisine is the order of the day at Passione Ristorante Italiano in Hong Kong’s Causeway Bay. Already massively popular in the city’s competitive foodie scene, Passione Ristorante Italiano is one of those rare finds where diners can enjoy authentic Italian dishes that stay true to the cuisine of the bel paese rather than being adapted to local tastebuds. The restaurant is found the on third floor of Jardine Center and is stunning on the inside, featuring upscale furnishings, mood lighting and a luxurious bar stocked with top-shelf liquors and fine wines. Guests can choose to go for the 5-course chef tasting menu – a popular option that allows diners to enjoy the chef’s top picks for that day – or they can simply order from the a la carte menu, which includes gourmet mains like pappardelle with lamb ragout and mushrooms, oven-baked stuffed guinea fowl and prawn linguine. Booking ahead is essential for this upscale Italian restaurant on Jardine’s Bazaar.
