Chef Michael White’s casual Italian restaurant sits right by Ocean Terminal’s scintillating Victoria Harbour waterfront, and the alfresco tables on the esplanade let us take in all of Central’s arresting skyline, which really never gets old. Inside, it’s warm, dim lighting in the different dining areas, including cosy banquettes with a view of the open kitchen from where dishes and excellent pizzas come out, fresh from the ovens. Chief White’s signatures are hearty regional favourites, but with a restraint on seasoning. Notables include his braised veal shank osso buco, tender enough to cut with a spoon, and pansotti — Ligurian style ravioli stuffed with soft burrata, dressed in a seafood sauce full of briny umami and studded with succulent chunks of Maine lobster. The Italian wine list is short and sweet, with bottles hailing from the usual Tuscany and Piedmont, as well as Sicily, Veneto and Marche regions. Service is swift, informal but friendly.
