What indeed is The Point? Simply put, it’s one of Hong Kong’s favourite Italian restaurants and pizzerias, minutes from Causeway Bay station, but put a little more grandly, it’s an experience. The point of it all is taste, something that this Hong Kong Italian establishment down busy Tang Lung Street takes very seriously. These guys import 00-ground flour and extra virgin olive oil from Italy, and use a proper stone oven to bake their pizzas the traditional way, fast, perfect, and brought to table still bubbling. There’s also good coffee, fresh pasta and salads, gourmet gelato and delicious desserts on offer, too. Our point being, book now!
Had dinner at The Point this time. As usual, great food and interesting pizza toppings and good service. The penne with meatballs was still quite small portion (with only 4 tiny meatballs...)
The food is great...when it arrives! We are used to not getting food at the same time in Hong Kong. However, we were a party of 4 and between the first 2 meals being served and the 4th, there was a space of 20 minutes, by which time everyone else had long finished. We then ordered our sweets and again the same thing happened. When we settled the bill, we even had to ask for our change and the receipt. If the speed of the food service was better if happily give full marks.
We love The Point’s menu for its restraint. It is, if you’ll allow us, straight to the point. A simple one pager, diners at The Point’s Tang Lung Street pizzeria, close to Hong Kong’s Sound View Plaza and Causeway Bay MRT, can choose from soups, salads, pasta, the famous list of specialty (and dessert!) pizzas, and a selection of fine cakes or the house panna cotta to finish. If you’re at The Point for a quick coffee and a bite to eat, bear in mind that only sustainably-sourced coffee beans are brewed here, which goes a long way to offset the food miles accrued by those delicious Italian ingredient imports!
Hong Kong foodies have a serious crush on truffle fries, and The Point dutifully indulges this romance with generous heaps of the thick-cut phenomenon, adding double cheese and a truffle-infused Hollandaise sauce for good measure. Looking for something light? Go classic Italian with a Caprese salad or pick from the salad buffet. We can’t go past The Point’s shareable antipasto platter, with aged prosciutto, speck, mortadella and buffalo mozzarella cheese, and Italian salami. A good number of classic pasta dishes precede the stars of the show at this Causeway Bay Italian restaurant and pizzeria: the made-to-order, fast-fired specialty pizzas. The traditional margherita is always a safe bet, but more complex toppings are to be found on the traditional norcina (Italian sausage, wild mushroom, garlic and Bechamel sauce) and suggestively titled pies like the Forest, the Neptune, and the Posh Hawaiian. Feeling creative? At The Point, you can customise your own pizza.
