Press > Cafe Roma Reopens with Major Renovation

Cafe Roma, a beachfront alfresco Italian restaurant at Ma Wan, is proud to announce the completion of its major renovation project. The design concept is inspired by the idea that family gatherings and food are integral parts of Italian culture. The warm and inviting atmosphere, natural materials, rustic elements, and dedicated kids facilities all work together to create a space that encourages families to gather and enjoy each other’s company over authentic Italian cuisine.

Experience Warmth and Hospitality of Italian Culture in the Rustic Italian Ambiance

“Family gatherings and food are the focal points of Italian way of living, and we wanted to create a space that reflects that,” said the restaurant manager. “We are excited to provide a family-friendly dining experience that not only offers authentic Italian cuisine but also immerses our guests in the warmth and hospitality of Italian culture.”

The design concept centres around the use of warm colours, natural materials, and rustic elements to create an ambiance that transports diners to the heart of Italy. The walls are painted in beige tone to resonate with the relaxing beach view. The soft lighting is warm and inviting that creates a cosy and intimate ambiance. The main dining area features a stunning feature brick wall with a marbled chimney, inspired by traditional Italian home kitchens.

The furniture is made of dark wood and features comfortable seating that is perfect for gatherings. The tables are large and sturdy, allowing for plenty of space for family-style dining or working by the beach while enjoying a cup of coffee alongside with excellent Wi-Fi connection and multiple power plugs and USB outlets. The decor includes rustic elements such as exposed brick walls, barrels and ropes that add to the warm and inviting atmosphere.

Family-Friendly Amenities and Kids’ Pizza Workshops for a Fun Dining Experience

To further enhance the family-friendly atmosphere, a range of children-friendly amenities are included in the design. The restaurant has setup an outdoor beach fun area with an excellent range of beach toys for kids’ enjoyment. By providing a diverse array of complimentary kids fun facilities including storybook and picture book collection, colouring set, toys and more, parents could enjoy their meal at Cafe Roma by simply monitoring their kids while kids are having fun at the outdoor beach fun area. Besides, kids’ pizza workshops are available on specified dates where they can design and create their own pizzas with parents.

New Authentic Italian Menu: Indulge in the Flavours of Italy!

Cafe Roma welcomes the new look with a refresh of the restaurant’s menu, featuring classic Italian dishes made with fresh, authentic ingredients sourced from Italy. Guests can now indulge in a variety of pasta dishes, crispy-crust pizzas, and hearty main courses, all prepared with traditional Italian techniques and flavours.

At Cafe Roma, we believe that antipasti are an essential part of any feast, setting the stage for the satisfying meal to come. That’s why we take pride in slicing our cold cuts to order, right in front of our guests, to ensure optimal serving temperature and taste, whetting their appetite and preparing them for culinary journey ahead.

Being a coastal restaurant, we understand the importance of seafood in Italian cuisine and the love for it among Hongkongers. Therefore, we offer a range of seafood appetisers that are sure to please, including our Tuna Tartare with Tropea Onions, Light Spicy Avocado Salsa with Roasted Pine Nuts, as well as our Fritto Misto di Mare. Our Tuna Tartare, made with sashimi-grade tuna, is mixed with Tropea onions, creating a chewy yet crunchy texture that is layered with a light and spicy avocado salsa for a refreshing and creamy taste. This dish offers a unique and contrasting combination of flavours that is sure to delight any palate. Our Fritto Misto di Mare is made with succulent pieces of black cod, tender baby calamari, and plump prawns, coated in a light and crispy batter for a perfect balance of flavours and textures.

For the main course, we highly recommend our Baked Seabass Wrapped in Parchment Paper and Grilled US Black Angus Rib-eye Steak Tagliata. The former is a masterpiece of coastal Italian cuisine, with sustainably sourced seabass baked to perfection with fresh clams and mussels, sealed in parchment paper to lock in its natural juices and flavours, creating a perfectly aromatic and flavourful experience. The latter is grilled to your liking and served sliced, with a side of fresh rocket salad, juicy cherry tomatoes, Parmesan cheese, and drizzled with a balsamic glaze, creating an excellent choice for the warm weather.

Pasta is certainly a comforting dish that Italian would have daily. Indulge in our delicious Panzerotti with Porcini Mushrooms in Sage Butter Sauce, made with fresh pasta, filled with earthy porcini mushrooms and drizzled with a rich and aromatic sage butter sauce. Another highlight is our Classic Spaghetti Carbonara, made with guanciale, pecorino Romano cheese, and pasteurised egg yolk. Unlike many carbonara recipes, this dish does not include cream, yet preserve the authentic Italian flavour.

To end your meal on a sweet note, our Sabayon with Mixed Berries offers a luxurious and creamy custard flavoured with Marsala wine and is served with a medley of fresh berries. For those who want to try all three classic Italian desserts at once, our Classic Italian Dessert Platter is the perfect choice, featuring tiramisu, panna cotta, and sabayon.

An impressive meal should always be accompanied by great cocktails, and our new menu features three classic Italian cocktails: Aperitini, made with a blend of Aperol, Campari, tequila, orange juice, and Prosecco, is refreshing and citrusy that is perfect for enjoying during a sunset. Limoncello Gin Collins is made with Limoncello as the main base, along with gin and lemon juice, creating a tangy yet sweet flavour. Finally, Rossini Strawberry uses strawberry puree mixed with Prosecco for a fruity and refreshing taste that is perfect for warm beach days. These classic Italian cocktails showcase the passion of Italy and are sure to bring joy to anyone who tries them.
