Best New Restaurants Hong Kong, July 2024: 208 Italian

208 Italian

Taking over 208 Duocento Otto’s former address, you can’t miss the conspicuously orange exterior of this new Italian concept by Epicurean Group. The two-storey restaurant comprises a bar (serving $58 Aperol Spritz and Negroni between 4pm to 7pm!) and private room on the ground floor. The main dining area can be found on the floor above with a proper pizza oven that fires up Piedmont-born Chef Emanuele Canuto’s lovingly made Neapolitan pizzas (the 48-hour fermentation process gives the dough a crisp and pillowy crust).

Opening hours: Daily, 11:30am to 11pm

208 Italian, G/F, 208 Hollywood Road Sheung Wan, Hong Kong, 2866 0066, WhatsApp: 6441 6547, www.instagram.com/208italian
