Good question. But why Italian? Try Ruth Cris in Admiralty (right next to Admiralty). It is excellent. JW

I've tried Ruth Cris and you're right they are excellent - great steaks. My girlfriend has mentioned in the past how she likes italian food. I don't think she is too familiar with any of the Italian restaurants though... Know of any good ones?

You can go inexpensive like Fat Angelos or you can try one at Kowloon Tonf Festival mall. there is a nice cozy Italian restaurant there, i ate 3 times at that one. JW

I was thinking a little more upmarket than Fat Angelos - don't get me wrong - they're a good restaurant but not somewhere i would want to go to have a romantic evening...Would prefer HK side for convenience but will look into the one you mentioned too Thanks for advice!

Actually FA is ok not great and not bad. Romantic well maybe you can order out and eat on the floor with candles and nice music. Put big pillows and flowers and keep it dark. or you can find a crowded and expensive place haha. good luck and romantic is in the thought and not the amount of money you toss away. JW
