In a sophisticated décor Sabatini serves rustic, authentic Italian gastronomy using only the best seasonal ingredients and complimented by an extensive wine list.
The Sabatini brothers opened their original Sabatini Ristorante Italiano in Rome in 1954, and went on to open two other restaurants overseas, including this one in The Royal Garden more than 20 years ago. It is the quintessential Roman Italian restaurant experience.
MUST TRY: Linguine with scampi, clams and mussels.
A rustic villa décor, with Roman arches, low ceiling, tiled floor, crisp tablecloths, candles, and a twinkling warmth that evokes the spirit of Italian dining.
Most of the staff have been here for a long time, and they combine an easy informality with a gentle and welcoming sense of humour. They are also very knowledgeable on both dishes and the rather magnificent wine list, which sports labels from all the wine producing regions of Italy.
Claudio Favero has recently joined Sabatini as chef de cuisine, and whilst following the Sabatini traditions he also adds a modern direction, along with the seasonal produce and fine ingredients such as Wagyu beef, Boston Maine lobster, Oscietra caviar, and black and white truffle. Along with the a la carte there is a tasting menu. Desserts are served from the traditional trolley.
HK$350 upwards, tasting menu HK$1,380 per person.
Sabatini is one of those jolly Italian restaurants where you can visit for any occasion, be it a romantic evening, a family event, or a business dinner. A live band adds to the sense of exuberance.
