A little Italian treat at SEPA Bacaro Veneziano is the perfect way to round up the day – if you’re OK to pay a little more.

Founded by Michelin-starred Italian chef Enrico Bartolini, SEPA is a modern and posh reinterpretation of the “Bacaro” dinning concept from ancient Venice.

I settle with the Wagyu Bolognese tagliatelle, sided with a glass of Tenuta Sassoregale Sangiovese; it’s marvellous to have the acidity of the wine perfectly backed up by the rich and meaty Bolognese sauce.

But you can’t quite focus on the food here as the interior itself is also a masterpiece. Filled with a convivial vibe, the space draws inspiration from old Bacaro architectural features with the likes of alleyways and corridors on display.

Neither too much nor too little, the HK$158 dish and the HK$88 glass of red is just perfect for a moderate dinner. Bringing a friend or two means that you can try a lot more dishes without having to spend a fortune.
