Gradini Ristorante E Bar Italiano has opened its doors at The Pottinger Hong Kong, adding modern Italian cuisine to the historic heart of the city. Gradini Ristorante E Bar Italiano specialises in modern Italian cuisine from classic home-made recipes, hearty Italian flavours are amplified by the elegant ambience and intimate old-world charm of The Pottinger Hong Kong, where East meets West and heritage meets modernity.

Drawing inspiration from the freshest ingredients, signature dishes include ‘Grigliata di polpo con spinaci in balsamico e olio di olive’, grilled Mediterranean octopus with citrus salad on a bed of hand-picked baby spinach leaves; ‘Rigatoni alla Norcina piccanti’, pasta with Tuscan sausage in spicy tomato sauce with a generous sprinkling of parmesan cheese and ‘Spigola alle erbe al forno’, salt-crusted whole Italian line-caught sea bass with fresh aromatic herbs. Cognoscenti should not miss the ‘Classico Tiramisù del pasticcere’, a classic tiramisu with layers of savioiardi biscuit flavour with aramotto topped with mascarpone cream and cacao.

The centre piece of the dining room is a spectacular copper Italian coffee machine, the ‘Victoria Arduino Venus’. A special release, the machine is a limited edition commemorating the 100th anniversary of the prestigious brand. With only 100 machines produced, it is as unique and treasured as Gradini Ristorante E Bar Italiano itself. Gradini is recognised as one of the ‘100 Top Tables of 2017’ by the South China Morning Post (SCMP) and Hong Kong Tatler’s Best Restaurants of 2016.
