I have been here several times, mostly in the evenings the past few years. I prefer sitting in the main dining room, than booth seating, is much more spacious and comfortable with a view of other diners. Having a starch white table cloth is special...for a relaxed dining place and with a sense of occasion. The maître d' and other staff are always courteous and knowledgable with items on the menu as well as assisting with wine pairing if needed. There are plenty of choices to choose from the menu but not overwhelming. The food, some are comfort food, like seafood spaghetti, without being too fancy or dramatic, are cooked to perfection. Some of the mains are rather generous and can be shared. The restaurant is also pet friendly but seating will be outdoor and is best to advise them ahead of time as there is only 1 table. I will definitely recommend this to my good friends.More

We went for Chinese New Year and had a fabulous evening. This was one of very few places to put on a vegetarian menu which was amazing. The meals, the service, the staff were all first class.

Having been a Giando customer of many years for both business and private dining, I was very disappointed at the poor quality of both dishes ordered yesterday evening. When I mentioned my observations concerning the food quality the manager had the strangest of responses in...simply stating “no problem” and asking my age . . . how unusual !More

We booked the Saturday brunch in advance. Since the arrival everything was perfect. We were a family of 4, with 2 little kids. Very good italian dishes, well prepared and tasty. Great and attentive service.

I absolutely recommend the Brunch! The smoked salmon was a delightful combination of flavors, with fines herbes and a touch of tangy orange and grapefruit. The burrata had a perfect balance, not overly creamy, allowing its unique character to shine. While the white wine was...too soft for my taste, the red and sparkling options were enjoyable. If you have a smaller appetite, consider opting for a lighter main course. Lastly, the mascarpone was absolutely divine. The staff were friendly, and the atmosphere exuded the ambiance of a fancy restaurant in Italy.More

Decent Italian restaurant. Very tasty pasted and Gnocchi - but beef is OKish. Quite corner, walking distance to JW Marriott. Will try again for pasta but not beef.

Four of us went for lunch at this Star Street restaurant. The décor and spacing of the tables seemed promising. I was a guest and so did not order al la carte but had the three-course set lunch (at HK$328). The (3-course) option is a...starter OR soup, a main and dessert. For medical reasons, I am not able to eat dessert. I asked if I might have a starter AND soup instead. The sullen (Chinese?) waitress replied curtly that it was not possible. I asked if there was any flexibility. She sent a waiter over – world-weary and impatient - who told me bluntly it was “not allowed”. It is a trivial matter in itself but the ‘take-it-or-leave-it’ attitude of these two miserable servers was off-putting. I had the soup. It was advertised as “classic minestrone”: it was the blandest of baby food and remined me of (bad) school dinners. I left it after one sip. For my main course, I had the pork chop. This turned out to be 5 slices of pork – dry, overcooked and accompanied only by some tiny, coloured specks of something yellow and orange. A cooked meat stall would have done a better job of producing something moist and flavourful. The white wine by the glass was indifferent (though we went for the most expensive one). In fairness, the place was full and so for some people, curt service and bland food seem to be ok. HK has so many good Italian restaurants from Otto e Mezzo to Venedia (in terms of price). This one - for me - needs to lift it act and do some staff training.More

Went to Giando for on the first day of CNY and couldn’t have chosen better! We were welcomed by Emanuelle and immediately felt as part of the family! The restaurant is warm and well decorated. The food is extremely good with a nice preparation and...the portions are generous! The wine list is impressive with wines from several regions of Italy. Most of us chooses the Alba’s White Truffle Special Menu and we were blowed away by the portion and the quality of the food! For dessert we had the house made ice cream that was stunning!! Absolutely recommend!!!More

We went here last night for anniversary dinner. The restaurant had a good atmosphere, although our table was outside the private room and with the door open, so was quite noisy. Service was really excellent and very attentive team. Food was amazing - burrata, Parma...ham, ravioli, cod, tiramisu - really high standard and beautifully presented. Would definitely recommend and will certainly go back.More

Amazing location nestled in Pacific place. Restauarnt is roomy, classy with high ceilings. Food is amazing…. And especially the olive oil for the breads. Had a kick of spice at the end and was told it’s as authentic and pure as it comes! Loved the...tomato appetiser, and squid main. The steak main was a bit on the tough side, even though we ordered medium. I think it was the beef cut. Nevertheless, all in all, great venue for any type of occasion!More

Giando is a hidden secret for Italian cuisine in Hong Kong. Hidden in the Bohemian Star Street neighborhood, it is a cozy and spacious place with pleasant decor. Food is the typical Italian favorites. The dishes may not be too creative but quality is unbeatable....Burrata is creamy. Scallops, wrapped with guanciale, is aromatic. Housemade pasta, a signature, is a must for all. Strozzapreti with nduja is mildly hot and rich in flavor. Ravioli, with the umami of cod, is tasty. Gnocchi, with a light cream sauce, is not greasy. Dessert is on the heavy side, though. Service is impeccable. Restaurant manager is caring and friendly. Price is reasonable. Reservation is a must.More

I have been here countless times over the years and the food and service have always been up to standard, for a restaurant that is recommended in the Michelin Guide (albeit no Michelin star level). It is to my huge disappointment that on my visit...today for afternoon tea, the standard of food still held up but the whole dining experience was ruined by the constant presence of countless fruit flies during the course of my 3 hour meal. The situation is so serious that I have personally killed 3 fruit flies with my bare hands, before I took these photos of another 3 flies. Needless to say, there are so many other flies that I did not capture in the photos. And to clarify, I was seated indoor and there were no plants or gardens in sight and I have switch tables indoor once but the situation did not improve at all. My multiple complaints to the Chinese manager in dark suit were not met with any apology(zero apology or apologetic gesture), but instead I was simple told that “they have just done a pest control excercise few days ago” (and this is verbatim). I have not even mentioned the 3-4 times that I have returned my wine glass to the manager and servers after the flies had dived into the wine or landed on the rim of the wine glass. I think you all get the picture by now based on my descriptions and the photos provided. I hope the management will address the hygiene and service issues here asap, for you are not only letting your long-time customers down but also the hardworking team inside the kitchen who actually deliver high standard and authentic Italian cooking consistently over the years (including today).More

Superb setting, the quality of the food and drinks you get for the money is absolutely amazing. We started with 6 different starters to share - they are quite big portions ! Then a main each and ended up with Sweets. We all had the...2 hour basic free flow package which included house drinks. The Prosecco was lovely, not too dry, not to sweet , just perfect. The red and white were also really nice. For me there was no need to go for any other packages :). Food was awesome , seafood salad, octopus and potatoes, burrata were just out of this world. The fettuccini with truffles , seafood stew were to die for ! The pork was just a little to dry but still nice. Desserts were very nice too. Would definitely go back.More
