Food is delicious and service great. The restaurant offers set lunch on weekends too. It's really a hidden gem in Sai Ying Pun!

Charming small traditional Italian restaurant. Run by a very friendly husband and wife couple. Rare to get this kind of warm and personal service in Hong Kong. Menu is limited but authentic.

We came for a friend's birthday dinner, and had a great experience. Dinner was served family style with set menu. The pasta dishes were exceptional - squid ink pasta with seafood ragu, duck angel hair and pesto pasta. Textures were perfect! The hostess was super...More

Been at Monteverdi because advised by an Italian friend who lives in hk. I had high expectations, which were initially fulfilled by a pretentious menu, with many Slowfood wording. My only supposition is that the Italian owner just sold it to a local who thought...More
