    An ambiance that caters to both intimate occasions and lively family gatherings,

    Theo Mistral by Theo Randall is an establishment that is inviting and warm – much like a typical home in Italy. With a plethora of dishes that satisfy each guest’s cravings, Theo Mistral by Theo Randall is a restaurant that prides itself on its ability to bring guests back for more. Guests are encouraged to sample a variety of must-order signature a la carte dishes such as the Calamari in padella (HK$228), a beautifully plated starter perfect for seafood lovers. This signature starter features fresh calamari pan-fried with chilli, anchovies, parsley and olive oil, served on a bed of chickpeas and accompanied by a fresh rocket salad.

    A restaurant that celebrates the best and most authentic aspects of Italian cuisine, guests will be delighted with a wide selection of pastas and pizzas, freshly home-made everyday with premium and seasonal ingredients. A must-order pasta dish that is loved and craved after by many is the Cappelletti di vitello (HK$228), featuring stuffed pasta filled with slow cooked hand-chopped veal and some pancetta, cooked in a beautiful porcini mushroom sauce. Filled with prosciutto di parma and slowly cooked in an oven, the Arrosto di faraona (HK$348) boasts roasted guinea fowl served with lemon zest, thyme and mascarpone on pagnotta bruschetta with Swiss chard, porcini and Portobello mushrooms. A type of meat with more depth of flavor than chicken, guinea fowl is often underrated and should be used more often in dishes because of its unique gamey flavor.

    For an exceptional sweet ending, indulge in one of Chef Randall’s signature desserts. Nothing beats the Torta morbida al cioccolato (HK$98), a gluten free soft chocolate cake with crema di mascarpone, vanilla and Marsala, a dry and sweet wine produced in the region surrounding the Italian city of Marsala in Sicily. The Crostata di limone di Amalfi (HK$98) or Amalfi Lemon Tart, is another one of Chef Randall’s signature desserts with lemons from the Amalfi coast in Campania.
