Operetta [Hong Kong] - Italian Food with some Japanese Influence and Affordable Deals

  Operetta with its duo of Italian Chef Sgro and Japanese Chef Konishi from Michelin starred Wakyu Takumi, has opened for a few months in Pacific Place and at the beginning has attracted the attention of some foodies for barely a few months, which reminds me of the fate of Osteria Felice. That is one challenge of running a restaurant in HK!  I have been here for their Happy Aperitivo Hour which features Italian bites included with a Buy 1 Drink and Get 2nd Drink for 50% off deal.  It gave us confidence to return and try out their All Day Menu, which is only $168 for 2 Courses and is available until 6pm. 

Happy Aperitivo Hour Snacks -
Buy 1 Drink, Get 2nd Drink 50% Off.
It includes some Prosciutto ham, Pizza, Cheese and nibbles..

All Day Menu - $168 for 2 Courses.  Add $58 for Dessert.
Daily from 11:30am to 6pm

Got some Happy Hour Wine,  Aperitivo Prosciutto Ham,  and Bread Basket -
The Ham is actually of a good quality,  the soft and not overly salty cured type.

Soup of the Day - Italian Beans Soup
This was quite huge and filling actually, with it tasting quite meaty and accurately seasoned, the beans weren't overly mushy cooked and just holding shape and taste.  It's actually nearly big enough to be a light meal by itself,  especially with the bread..  ~ 9/10

Tagliolini Amatriciana & Pancetta -
The pasta was actually really good, hand made and eggy, springy.  This was a surprise and comparing it to sister restaurants Michelin Starred or Bib Gourmand CIAK in the Kitchen's similar version, I actually liked this better.  Even the Celeries were diagonally sliced evenly and everything was cooked well,  tomato sweet and with good pancetta input.  It tasted slightly Japanese sweeter too..  ~ 8/10  So far, the Happy Aperitivo Hour and Dishes tried so far were quite convincing especially when compared to its pricing point.  Will definitely be back
