Locanda Dell’Angelo’s Executive Chef Steve Chiu has decided to re-envision the future of the restaurant. With the rising number of Italian restaurants in Hong Kong rising, Chef Steve has chosen to implement a few changes that focus on the restaurant’s most important mission: to provide guests with a truly stand-out dining experience.
Starting today, Locanda Dell’Angelo unveils its new six-course chef’s tasting menu, and with it, Chef Steve’s fresh, contemporary, and exciting new Hong Kong-inspired approach to traditional Italian cuisine. The revamped a la carte menu has been greatly reduced while retaining long-time Locanda guest favourites.
