I've really gotten quite spoiled with the amount of fantastic Italian food that exists in Hong Kong. Another new one that opened during the pandemic (in 2022) is Testina Hong Kong. Testina arose out of a collaboration between a restaurant in Milan, Italy called Trippa Milano and ZS Hospitality in Hong Kong (Feuille, Hansik Goo, Whey).
Testina's unique aspect is its genuine focus on nose-to-tail dining, offering dishes made with veal tongue, beef tripe, chicken liver, chicken offal, bone marrow, and pig's head. Recommended in the Michelin Guide, the quality of the food is excellent, and it was certainly hard to book when it first opened.
Initial Thoughts - Testina
Tripe, veal tongue, and a chicken offal ragu, Testina Hong Kong keeps prices reasonable while offering excellent quality Italian food. Our first visit was really nice, and I'd totally come back again. Testina definitely has a warm and cozy feel, and the dishes are "home-style" yet creative at the same time. Offal is the star, and prominently used throughout the menu. However, if you don't like offal there's still plenty of options.
