I went to Pirata with a friend and we took the Restaurant Week lunch set. All dishes were delicious and in good portions. I particularly liked the Wagyu beef agnolotti. I was happy that we’d the best table on the 30th floor. I’ve been to...Pirata many times and prefer to be seated on the 30th floor instead of the 29th floor. It tends to be more noisy on the latter.More

大家都知我係Pirata Group @piratagrouphk 嘅fans👺之前我都同大家介紹過嘅The Pizza Project其實都係呢個集團旗下🍕我上次生日就係嚟呢間食咗frunch,食完都覺得幾滿意,琴日係星期六,忙咗成個星期想放鬆下心情,畀自己放假,於是就同朋友再嚟Pirata享用佢哋嘅weekend brunch ($348 per person +10%)🤤估唔到兩點嘅時候都座無虛席,如果想食嘅話記得早啲book位😛 前菜係包咗4款,首先上菜嘅係餐包同埋兩款cold starters - truffle Caesar salad 同埋Pirata Cold Cuts Selection🥗cold cut有24個月風乾火腿、意大利香腸、莎樂美腸同percorino🧀個人覺得火腿都幾有鹹香味🤤今次我哋加埋Free flow (+$198)有5款酒,啤酒紅酒白酒香檳同cocktail都有🤣飲吓酒食吓ham & cheese 真係有種weekend 嘆嘅感覺🤪 跟住落嚟就係上熱嘅前菜,Signature M.M.M.係佢哋嘅招牌starter🤩肉丸用咗牛肉、豬肉同cheese整,所以食落去係勁香肉味,而且因為有啲cheese所以令個味道層次更加豐富😆另一個Fritto Misto就有炸魷魚、蝦同鱈魚,炸皮夠薄夠香脆,而且魚肉算幾肥美,食落去係啖啖幸福嘅感覺🤎 其實食完前菜都飽咗6成🤣主菜方面同朋友一人揀咗一款,Wagyu Beef Cheek (+$38)真心💯推介,因為一切落去根本唔洗用力就知道佢哋煮得好軟淋,一放入口就feel到啲牛味係口到爆發出嚟☺️ 配菜嘅parsnip puree都打得好滑,比起出面畀啲普通嘅薯蓉更加有誠意😚 雖然係比其他main course貴少少,但係個人覺得幾值得加錢試吓呢個😝 朋友之前食過佢哋嘅black truffle tagliatelle覺得好好食,所以另一款main course嗌咗呢款🍝其實好出名食意粉嘅Pici都係佢哋集團旗下㗎,所以對佢哋啲意粉都好有信心🤑意粉做到al dente,而且好掛汁,加埋舖滿面嘅松露片,食落口真係啖啖松露味,啲汁都好夠creamy😋果然冇介紹錯🤣 Dessert上次嚟食咗好好食嘅tiramisu,今次嚟就梗係要食Pirata...Group 另一個招牌Panna cotta🍮奶凍真心超滑而且奶味好重👍🏻加埋果醬酸酸甜甜咁超夾🥰 另一個semifreddo係一個比較傳統,以nuts為主體嘅half-frozen cake~不過同朋友都係比較鍾意panna cotta🤣 另外想特別讚嘅一點係,當日有一枱生日,個staff仲彈結他同佢唱live生日歌同埋影polaroid📸真心欣賞呢到嘅staff好熱情🤍 餐廳嘅服務令人有賓至如歸嘅感覺真係會好加分👍🏻 總括嚟講,呢到嘅食物質素、環境同服務都非常好,而且係非常正宗嘅意大利菜😍用餐體驗好令顧客真係有種可以係星期六日放慢腳步嘅感覺,係到飲吓酒,吹吓水,享受一個悠閑chill吓嘅weekend~叉足電可以迎接新嘅星期🤪希望可以多啲人認識佢哋More

I have been to Pirata for lunch recently. The lunch sets offered very good value for money. There’re many main courses to choose from. Pecorino ravioli was as good as always. The daily special, red prawn tagliolini, was even more delicious. The restaurant wasn’t busy...at all so there’s no noise problem which I’d experienced before. There’s even complementary free flow of Prosecco. My friend and I both enjoyed our lunch a lot.More

We chose this restaurant because several of us(group of 8) had been here before. The dunch meal is a decent price. The ran out of several options on the menu but were unapologetic which was strange considering it was only 3 pm i.e. panna cotta...and lasagne. We were having free flow champagne or Prosecco but had to ask repeatedly to have our glasses refilled. This was particularly irritating because we were told we had to leave at 5 pm which meant we weren't going to use the full 2 hours of the free flow. The staff were cordial but disorganised. The gnocchi and tiramisu were very good but the vegetarian options were mediocre. For example, the salad was a plate of leaves with no dressing. I think the restaurant is relying on its former reputation and the fact that it is part of a group of restaurants. I have been to Tokyo Lima and the Pizza Project and the service was excellent. So this experience was disappointing. I will not return to this venue.More

We visited for lunch as we like other restaurants in this chain and wanted to try their special seasonal white truffle menu. We were told we would need to return the table by 2:00-,not a problem as we don’t like to spend a long time...out away from our dog, averaging an hour per visit to any restaurant. But our food unfortunately took a long time to arrive, after the starter. We were not done until nearly 3:00! To make matters worse, we were seated by a window with the hot sun coming in, the air conditioning not working at all, and temperature quite high. I would suggest either closing the restaurant for lunch service or at least not seating anyone by the windows if the air conditioning is not capable of cooling. In summary: Food was good but restaurant temperature was borderline unbearable. Overall not an experience I would want to repeat.More

Pirata is really a nice cozy place recommended by friends. We tried the tasting menu and all dishes were so delicious. We had Vitello Tonnato for the start, so so good, must-eat 👍🏻. Then Burrata and Parma Ham, the cheese was so creamy and the...parma ham was excellent. The Meatballs were tender and flavourful, also a must-eat 👍🏻. Then came the Tagliatelle with black truffle, it was ok la. The main dish was the lovely Butcher’s cut, great steak 👍🏻. And ended with my favourite Tiramisu, so yummy 😋😋😋. Great food and good service, highly recommended 👍🏻More

Read quite a lot of positive reviews about this restaurant and especially good value for money for lunch. However, our family could only go for dinner and even though knew it would be more expensive, we still went and thought besides the food, could enjoy...the night view of the city as well. We ordered steak tartar which turned out to be very different from the traditional style. The beef was cut into small cubes without much taste and no raw egg on top. We had 4 types of cold cuts with cheese which was quite standard. However, for those who don't like blue cheese, better skip this. We then had the mussels which we checked with the waitresses which normally had about 10 pieces. The mussels were quite fresh and tasted ok. For the pasta, we order spaghetti with king prawns. Although we were being told there are usually 4 king prawns, ours only had 2. The taste was ok and portion was enough for sharing. The most shocking happened when the Lobsters Risotto was delivered. Instead of seeing the whole lobster placed on top of the rice (as shown in many photos in the restaurant's reviews), we only saw a tiny piece of lobster as shown in our picture. We asked the waitress and was told those seen in the pictures were available during brunch and it was another dish etc. She kept mentioning that dish's Italian name but I couldn't recall seeing another dish in the dinner menu offering lobsters. We were being told there were small pieces of lobsters mixed in the risotto. There was nothing we could do and even after finishing all the rice, the total amount of lobsters mixed with the rice would not add up to the normal size of a lobster claw. This dish cost US$36 and absolute no value for money. When I checked the other pictures within OpenRice App, even in another picture dated in June which showed the same dish, their piece of lobster was certainly bigger than ours. Glad that we didn't order any main course yet as we were not sure about the portion sizes and tastes etc. After the risotto experience, we dared not order dessert as the tiramisu costs US$12 each.More

I’ve always given nothing but good words to Pirata Group. My dining experience have always been excellent particularly in Pici, Chaiwala and Pirata. My good friend and I wanted to have a celebatory lunch, and I personally recommend we come and dine in Pirata. I...haven’t been there in a while and was very excited to go back again. However, today wasn’t as great as it used to be. The waitstaff handed us the lunch menu immediately when we sat down. We were given water almost immediately. The weather is hot and really appreciate to have a sip of water. We decided to get the ”Frunch” with 90min free flow. We thought the free flow was the drink. It was our mistake too for not confirming with the staff but I thought the staff should’ve explained the menu to us since my friend did ask about the drink. We only realized that we’re not having the free flow drink when we saw the bill. It was fine regardless, didn’t mind paying more but I would appreciate it if the staff had offered us the free flow drink which they have on the menu. In my past dining experiences with Pirata, the staff always offers or asks if I wanted free flow. For some reason today wasn’t the day. The food came in a timely manner and was okay. It wasn’t exceptional but the portions were decent. My Butcher’s Cut could have more seasoning and I felt it was more medium than medium rare. I asked for medium-rare. My friend had diarrhoea after we left the venue, maybe it’s the Tiramisu that she ate for dessert. I had the Panna Cotta and I’m feeling okay. Drinks were great and my friend loved her mocktail. I enjoyed my Chianti too. However, a waitstaff took my glass after i took the last sip, didn’t ask me whether I wanted another glass and I actually did. I asked another staff for one more glass. I understand it could’ve been because there’s a 2-hour time limit. However, we still got 40mins left. Overall, the service wasn’t exceptionally well as it used to be. I always had a great dining experience with Pirata. Unfortunately, today I was let down. I will still continue to support Pirata Group, I just wish I won’t have to experience another service like today.More

Have been longing to try their signature Butcher’s Cut, and it really lived up to the hype!😍This flank steak had a chewier texture than rib-eye, and tasted a lot meatier and still rich in flavour with minimal seasoning. Ordered medium rare, very well-cooked and juicy,...and the charred taste on top was perfect! Could only order one main dish if you ordered this, but the steak was already good for two!  End the meal with a sweet note - panna cotta: a creamy quite sweet but had a smooth texture, the raspberry sauce on top was so good! tiramisu: it was okay but not a “wow”, the inside was not moist enough while the espresso flavour could be more prominent. Overall, 💯 for food and service, a great place for casual Italian dining or even celebrations. (you may get a polaroid and coupon as a gift!) Will surely revisit.More
