The Peak Galleria remains one of Hong Kong’s most stunning viewpoints. It boasts a wealth of restaurants to choose from – with Italian restaurant FIAMMA among the best of them. Visiting Michelin-approved Chef Enrico Bartolini’s second venture in Hong Kong is like coming home to an Italian-style home cooked meal. Settle into its rustic Mediterranean interior, which is best enjoyed with family and friends. Feast on creamy burrata and antipasti and carb load on their sprawling pizza selection: but don’t forget to save room for dessert – their panna cotta is a menu highlight.

Beautiful marbled slabs of A5 quality Kyushu and Wagyu beef come piled high on platters for you to grill, alongside a strong selection of pork, chicken and seafood.
