Ciacoe brings aperitivo vibes to Pottinger Street (Central) 

Madame Digests – January 2021
With international travel still a remote prospect, I’m not sure yet when will be the next time I’ll get to enjoy la dolce vita and while waiting for it, hoping it will be sooner than I expect, I am making the most of Hong Kong’s incredibly diverse food scene and sipping on a Spritz whenever and wherever I can. My latest go to place for a proper Italian aperitivo is Ciacoe, an Italian bar on Pottinger Street where I get to enjoy my Spritz, or glass of wine recommended by the in-house Italian wine expert Eugenio, alfresco with a side of cold cuts and homemade pizza and in a friendly atmosphere.
