Lanciano Italian Restaurant

We found ourselves back to Lanciano again since choices in Tai Po are somewhat limited if one doesn't want Asian food.

Porcini soup (HK$ 55).  It was well seasoned and full of porcini flavour, but it could be creamier and richer in my opinion as supposed to the broth-y consistency.
Minestrone (HK$55).  It was total comfort food with a very tomato-y base and full of chunky vegetables.
Gnocchi al gorgonzola (HK$75). Very rich and filling, the gorgonzola cheese taste was prominent but not overwhelming.
Pizza Caprese (HK$130).  Pizza had a nice base but it was pretty average and could use a bit more olive oil.
Spaghetti alla carbonara (HK$125).  Very well executed with a perfect creamy yet not-too-wet sauce.
Spaghetti al goose liver (HK$125).  Pan fried goose liver with spaghetti tossed in duck fat and seasoning.  It's a signature dish and rightly so.
Risotto with lobster (HK$170).  The chunks of lobster meat were plentiful and delicious.  The risotto was a little under- cooked and I thought the fish broth was a bit too strong for me. 
Corkage was HK$110.  The chef seemed to perfect on pasta dishes and we will stick to them from now on.
