Grand and glamourous at Gradini Ristorante Italiano

Although Gradini serves Italian food, the restaurant is so elegant and the interior looks French.

Went here with a group of friends to try it out.
While we were there, Kelly Chen 陳慧琳 was also dining there.
As well as Kelly, they said Julian Cheung 張智霖 and local tycoons dine there alot.

Anniversary cocktail:

We were served this pretty anniversary cocktail which had pearlescent pearls in it that contains alcohol.



★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Selection of prime Italian dried and cured meat Parmigiano Reggiano and black truffle honey - HK$138:

Started off with a selection of fine meats but my favourite was the hard and tasty Parmigiano Reggiano cheese because I love cheese.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Seafood salad with parsley and olive dressing - HK$168:

The seafood salad was refreshing.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Grilled Mediterranean octopus and citrus salad on a bed of hand-picked baby spinach leaves - HK$148:

The octopus salad stole the show because the octopus was really soft and springy with a strong briny octopus taste.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Double –boiled crustacean broth with king scallop, scampi, mussels, clams, calamari and fresh herbs- HK$198i:

The crustacean soup had a strong crab taste and there was quite a bit of seafood blended into it.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Home-made tagliolini with Maine lobster, fresh tomato and basil - HK$388:

A nice dish of pasta in tangy tomato sauce with chunky pieces of lobster.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Home-made Ravioli filled with lobster and fresh tomato coulis - HK$248:

Personally I liked the ravioli because I just love ravioli, the ravioli pastry was firm and al-dente filled with tasty lobster.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Oven-baked whole Italian line-caught sea bass with fresh aromatic herbs in salt crust - HK$398:



For red meat alternatives, you can choose this because the fish is delicate paired with fractal brocoli and a nice lemon sauce.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Live Maine lobster, baked or steamed with choice of sauces (lemon butter sauce, sea urchin cream or spicy tomato sauce) - HK$548:

As nice as it looks, the lobster was springy and tender.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Roast lamb rack with herbs and Chianti mustard - HK$398:

This is a must try even if you are not keen on lamb because it is soft and supple and not a bit gamey.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Tiramisu HK$88:

I am bored of Tiramisu but this one was amazing because it had crushed chocolate which makes it taste so nice and the layers are so fluffy and creamy with a delicate sponge in the middle.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Moscato Jelly HK$98:

As well as the tiramisu, the jelly is a must because it is paired with fragrant coconut icecream and the jelly is sweet and divine.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
I didn't try the cocktails but the others had:
· Salty Air HK$138 (new summer cocktail)

· Iced Watermelon HK$138 (new summer cocktail):

The iced watermelon is basically like an alcoholic sorbet.
