Proudly presented by the famous British chef, Jamie Oliver, the Hong Kong Italian restaurant is now serving an express lunch set during the weekdays. The set lunch includes your choice of one of the two appetisers, your choice of entree, a complimentary cup of iced lemon tea, in addition to an optional dessert, that only costs a few extra dollars.
Furnished with colourful decorations, an Italian open kitchen and a hip cocktail bar, the restaurant provides friendly service and a comforting ambience to savour some of Jamie's best Italian dishes.

We start off with a heart-warming bowl of mushroom soup in which the creaminess is ideally complemented with real mushroom bites and an aroma unlike any other.

The prime beef steaks and prosciutto-wrapped halibut are both served on a wooden board and come with skinny fries and housemade polenta chips respectively. The trimmed beef steaks are cooked to a perfect medium rare and are very succulent and paired excellently with one of my favourites, chimichurri sauce.

The baked halibut retains a great amount of moisture due to it being wrapped with crispy prosciutto ham, not to mention a bed of scrumptious roasted peppers and sweet onion slices.

Not many will dispute that Jamie's epic brownie is one of the best in town. It's very dense and has the texture of a cakey chocolate brownie that is topped with smooth homemade caramel gelato and popcorns. We went for the signature tiramisu and almond frangipane tart and were not disappointed.

The warm tart is impressively presented with two scoops of light-whipped mascarpone cream and honey combs, made with seasonal fruits that happen to be sliced apples.

Jamie's version of tiramisu is basically a resemblance of traditional English trifle, flavoured with coffee, orange mascarpone and finally chocolate ganache. Both desserts are unbelievably delectable.

Trust me, it's time to get express with Jamie and you do not want to miss any of his desserts!
