Review

Naming your restaurant after a signature dish is a true marker of confidence—and, fortunately, Grissini delivers on it. These warm from the oven, super-sized breadstick-pizza dough hybrids, served with deliciously deep and fruity balsamic vinegar and olive oil, are the stars of the show at the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong’s Italian restaurant, and stopping at just one is impossible. Nevertheless, chef de cuisine Alessandro Cozzolino’s refined menu is well worth your time, with hearty rich flavours, perfectly cooked proteins and an elegant touch meaning that the pasta and meat dishes are equally impressive, although desserts prove disappointingly unmemorable in comparison. The extensive wine list is excellent, covering every imaginable region of Italy, with Grissini’s helpful yet unobtrusive staff another plus. The dining room is huge but comfortable, although the décor—featuring a Roman-style colonnade running through a central raised area—can feel dated, and its stunning harbour views are currently marred by Wan Chai’s seemingly ceaseless construction. Best concentrate on feasting on more of those all-too-addictive breadsticks instead.
