The finest Italian pasta in Hong Kong is at Tosca
Fuck, Marry, Kill: bacon, ice cream, pasta: Fuck Bacon, Marry Pasta, Kill Ice Cream. – Karishma Sani
Smack dab in the center of Hong Kong’s Kowloon neighborhood, famous for its bustling markets and neon street signs, Tosca provides respite from the hustle and bustle of contemporary city living. Here the decor is grand Romanesque, the food is Southern Italian, and the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. The restaurant’s interior is just as dramatic as the turn-of-the-20th-century opera from where it gets its name. From fountains to majestic chandeliers, Tosca, located in the Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong in Kowloon, is positively grandiose.
Just like an evening at the theater, patrons get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at life in Tosca with the restaurant’s open kitchen. This is Michelin-starred Chef Pino’s domain; guests can pull up a chair at his limited edition first table and try a special four-course menu. The regular menu is just as impressive: Mediterranean lunch favorites include homemade fusilli with chicken sauce and provolone cheese and porcini pappardelle with toasted breadcrumbs and cauliflower. Dinner options include crab agnolotti and roasted lamb loin. Tosca attracts an upscale crowd, including locals and hungry hotel guests on vacation who want fuss-free Italian cuisine in a pocket of the city where street food is still the status quo. Book a table to eat at Tosca and while you’re there make sure to check out the bar at Ozone, up a few floors at the Ritz, so you can have the best view of Hong Kong.
