Smart-casual Italian restaurant by restaurateur-chef Beppe De Vito, Amò on Hong Kong Street is known for its great quality pasta (including gluten-free pasta options), antipasti, and slow-fermented chewy crusted pizzas. It’s all dark interiors and low lighting here so makes a good date night spot, but it’s also friendly enough for family weekend lunches. If you have a larger group, we love their private room (they can do a special set menu too). Must-tries include the Roasted Pumpkin and Wild Garlic Pesto pizza, the Hand Rolled Trofie Pasta with Purple Artichokes and the Wagyu Beef Short Rib Peposo with Green Peppercorns and Potato Crema. We love their affordable Italian set lunch during the week at 38++ per person for three courses and coffee – bargain!

As you’d hope the fresh pastas such as tagliolini, pappardelle, ravioli, cavatelli and orecchiette are all made in house too and chef Antonio Miscellaneo’s signature Neapolitan pizzas are made with a 72-hour slow fermented dough to give them that memorable chewy billowy crust.
