Time Out says

The same team behind restaurants like Hansik Goo, Whey, Miss Lee and more, is opening modern trattoria Testina this month. The new restaurant is in collaboration with Trippa Milano from Italy and will be the first of three new openings to hit the recently renovated 8 Lyndhurst Terrace building. Testina, which means ‘head’ in Italian, serves refined versions of classic Italian recipes with a nose-to-tail approach to their dishes. Former 8½ Otto e Mezzo Bombana Shanghai chef Marco Xodo is at the helm and dishes out things like crispy fried tripe ($200), or trippa fritta in Italian, roasted onion ($160) with Sicilian capers and dried tomato, whipped cod fish topped with red pepper and spread on slices of toasted polenta ($190), and much more. Inside the restaurant, expect a retro design with mustard-yellow walls, olive green furniture and Palladiana flooring that nods to the Milanese trattorias of the 1970s.


3/F, 8 Lyndhurst Terrace, Central
Hong Kong
Opening hours:
Tue to Sat 6-11pm; Sun 12-3pm; 6-11pm
