Just in time for those balmy summer evenings, Repulse Bay pizza restaurant Amalfitana has opened in the heart of Soho.
Pizza and summer, what a winning combination. They go together like tequila and salt, boat shoes and yachting, peanut butter and…ladies. And what better way to celebrate the arriving summer – a season filled with hope after an epically crap year – than with a pie in the heart of vibrant Central Hong Kong?
Located on Wyndham Street, the new restaurant is helmed by seasoned pizzaiolo Chef Michel Delgi Agosti, who presents both dine-in and delivery menus laced with tradition and the freshest ingredients, with takeaway pies whisked to your home via a fleet of customised Vespas, naturally.
Agosti continues his signature pizza style, using low-rising dough to create bases that are light and which showcase the ingredients to perfection. Look out for everything from the classic Margherita to the signature Amalfitana, gourmet pizzas that can be enjoyed alongside a range of seasonal small plates and flavourful fresh salads.
This is Wyndham Street so if you’re looking to snack through aperitivo hour, Chef Agosti has also developed an elevated bar snack menu which ranges from oysters and fried calamari to bocconcini, dough balls stuffed with mozzarella that are so addictive they come with a warning from the Surgeon General. Consider yourself warned.
You can pair the best of the Amalfi Coast with classic libations that are bursting with flavour and energy. Signature drinks include the Parmesan Sour with rye whiskey, almond wine, fresh citrus, egg whites, and freshly grated parmesan (yes, in a drink); the Espresso Zabaglione, made with vodka, hazelnut, fresh espresso, kirsch, marsala and mascarpone foam; and the Hugo Watermelone, featuring salted watermelon, Italicus bergamot liqueur, Americano Bianco vermouth, soda, and prosecco as an innovative twist on the classic spritz
Featuring warm and spirited interiors by A Work of Substance, the team behind Fukuro, La Petite Maison, and Hokkaidon, Amalfitana Central embodies the intimacy of the charming streets and courtyards of Capri and the brilliance of the Mediterranean Sea, a vibe that’s accentuated by the chilled tracks of DJ Noel, who will bring his multicultural mix to the night scene with sounds that are bound to wake your senses and speak to your
