Pizza, Pizza, and More Pizza: Taking over the location of what used to be Franco Pepe-headed pizza joint Kytaly—well-known for serving up some of the priciest pies in the city—is new pizzeria Babacio, which is offering up a delicious array of pizzas and other casual Italian dishes.
Look & Feel: Sitting along buzzing Wyndham Street overlooking Tai Kwun, Babacio boasts an airy terrace filled with greenery and casual rattan furniture.
On the Menu: Antipasti, salads, pizzas, gnocchi, and desserts. The pizzas are divvied up into classiche (with your regular tomato base), bianca (no tomato base) and fritta (deep-fried). We’ve got our eyes on the proscuiutto devodier (aged parma ham with mozzarella di bufala campana DOP, $148) and the margherita DOP, piccante, and cotto e funghi pizzas ($168, $218 and $218). The food is accompanied by soft drinks and Peroni beer.
Great For: Chilling on the terrace over pizzas and beer with friends while watching the world go by.
FYI: Try the weekday set lunch, which includes a salad, pizza, dessert and drink for $168.
