Time Out says
Taking over the old La Piola spot on the ground floor of the historical Woo Cheong Pawn Shop, which is directly underneath The Pawn, new Italian restaurant Crust has officially opened its doors in Wan Chai. Offering a taste of Naples and the Amalfi Coast, Crust Italian combines a pasticceria (Italian pastry shop) with a restaurant and Italian street food takeaway counter. The all-day venue takes you from your morning pastry and coffee to lunch and afternoon tea, before a little aperitivo and dinner. There’s a lot on offer here, but highlights include sfogliatelle which are puff pastries filled with lemon-scented cream or custard – street-food style calamari or pizza fritti wrapped in a paper cone for takeaway, and seafood scialatielli served with a 14-hour ragu made with six different cuts of pork beef and veal, among many other Italian dishes. There will also be a variety of cocktails made with Amalfi gins, Campari, and wines by the glass, all accompanied by a complimentary buffet of dishes to graze on during aperitivo hour.
G/F, 60A-66 Johnston Rd, Wan Chai
