We had the set lunch which starts with a buffet of salads and antipasti followed by a combination of pizzas, pastas and mains before finishing with pudding and a lacklustre afternoon at work.
The food varies from good to excellent with a particular emphasis on pasta which is all handmade. We devoured the maccheroni with Italian sausage, cream. tomato and pecorino, while interestingly, the puddings were a real surprise, particularly the unusual tiramisu with passion fruit.
The interior styling puts you at ease and the restaurant also features a clever mechanism which pulls out the outdoor decking, doubling the terrace size and making it a brilliant place for sun-downers and a pizza.
We all know Italian is the least value-for-money cuisine in Hong Kong, and beginning at $138 for the antipasti and pudding buffet (no pasta/pizza/main), lunch at Al Molo is no different but the restaurant is actually very competitive by market rate.
Overall it’s a great spot for long lunches and easy going suppers, particularly when the Hong Kong haze lifts enough to make you feel you’re not in some strange meteorological vortex.
Make sure you book a table outside.
