Great restaurant. Easier to get a table than its more famous cousin, Otto e Mezzo, food is on a par, as is the service. More intimate than Otto and a bit quieter.

seabass was a bit overcooked, and my girl friend said there should be more choices for non dairy dessert. Rest is top notch.

We had an excellent meal - great food and service. We had a corner table banquette which we found spacious and very comfy - best options in the room i think. The serves are modest but of high quality. Wine service from Constanza was excellent - several good suggestions were enjoyed. We had a long leisurely dinner and enjoyed every minute.

The tasting menu had a terrific selection. The food was very good. The service was good even though there was a slight mixup on an order. Though it was handled very professionally. The restaurant is worth a visit!

Cosy homely yet modern dining room, with several tables for 2 alongside large windows. High ceilings though not a large venue. Waiting staff extremely friendly, making a great effort to please. Large wine menu with knowledgeable sommelier at hand, some expensive but not outrageous. Menu portions are healthy and sensible, with high quality presentation and ingredients. All good. We particularly enjoyed octopus appetizer, fettucine with morel mushroom, main course lamb cutlet and sea bass fillet, and the chocolate souffle dessert. Highly recommend for tables between 2 and 4. Will be back.

We loved pastas and Lamp . However, The ambience was poor. A/C was not working properly. It killed our appetite and we wanted to get out of the restaurant as fast as possible. The manager should have informed us about the A/C situation at the very beginning. It was very stuffy we had to ask what happened then they told us. The service was not impressive. We had to ask them every time we wanted to top off our wine glass.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary and enjoyed delicious food and attentive service. unfortunately, there was an extremely loud man who was almost shouting while conversing with his fellow diners, that ruined the atmosphere. Other than that, it's a most enjoyable dining experience. Wine pairings are superb.

We really enjoyed our experience at Octavium! The food was incredibly well prepared, delicious and beautifully presented, and the service was attentive without being intrusive. The decor of the restaurant is simple, yet elegant, and the spacing between the tables allows for privacy and intimacy, which was perfect for our date night birthday celebration. We were also pleasantly surprised by the well-priced wine list. I have no doubt that we will be coming back soon!

Food was reasonably good but lacked the finesse from an earlier visit. Although service was attentive, staff weren't in touch with breaking up conversation to introduce the next course. This happened multiple times, cutting us off mid sentence without any notice.

Good food, good service.

Highly recommended for good Italian food.

Although the menu is small you can always find something to eat. That said, the food is simply outstanding as is the service. By far one of HK's best places to eat.

The restaurant is very noisy and I was arrange at a table right under the air con & next to the kitchen. It’s freezing and noisy overall. We told them that my friend cannot take lamb as the main course but they forgot and served us lamb.. this is unacceptable!!!!

Food just like exceptional!! Fanky was a perfect host while my wife and I enjoyed every single course of the dinner. The atmosphere was classy and every single detail is a plus. It is a true Italian experience from the moment you step in until the moment you leave.
One of best restaurants we have been so far. Very impressed.

The flavor and texture of the food was excellent however the service was so overwhelmingly good it made us remember the experience more than the food itself.

We went to celebrate our anniversary. Ben was very helpful in organising and arranging cakes and flowers to be set on my table and also gave us a lovely seat for the occasion.

A lightweight creation of Chef Bombana in an awkward office building. The smallish dining room gives guests a squared feeling. Throughout the course of the evening, the wait staff appears to be rather busy, serving those in the private dining room. The menu is simple and the food tasted rather flat. It lacks the power of modern Italian cuisine which unfortunately has become a necessity in the most rapid rhythmic city in the world. It waits to be seen if Bombana can add that extra spark to boost its energy.
