An Authentic Slice Of Italy: Whether you are in for a casual lunch with colleagues or are looking for a full-course experience to celebrate the special days, BluHouse, the newest addition to Rosewood’s restaurants, will be catering all those needs with both of its casual and elevated approaches to Italian dining. 

Look & Feel: BluHouse sits on the ground floor of Victoria Dockside, serving also a panoramic view of the Fragrant Harbour as guests dine. The causal dining area adopts a semi-open design to shine its interior with natural light and welcome the sea breeze. Join the team during dinner in The Dining Room, where you experience a private, intimate fine-dining journey.

On The Menu: Led by Chef de Cuisine Giovanni Galeota, BluHouse celebrates Italian cuisine, known for its good, honest cooking, in two ways — a laid-back concept that brings Italian street foods to Rosewood and a modern Italian gastronomy at The Dining Room.

Freshen up your palates with a selection of authentic Italian starters such as Octopus Salad with Bella di Cerignola olives and extra virgin olive oil (HK$190), and Veal Tendons and Tongue Salad (HK$138) with lupins and pickled vegetables at La Gastronomia deli counter, before you proceed to La Rosticceria rotisserie counter for the main dishes. Fiori Di Zucca, a stuffed zucchini flower with smoked provola cheese (HK$95), signature Pollo Allo Spiedo (HK$220 half/ HK$400 whole), a free-range yellow Rotisserie chicken brined for six hours and roasted on an open flame; Ariccia style Roasted Pork (HK$198) served with roasted potatoes can all be found there. If you are craving for some handmade fresh pasta, the eatery serves five types of that including Rigatoni Alla Carbonara (HK$198) with egg yolk, guanciale, Pecorino Romano cheese and black pepper, Traditional Lasagna Bolognaise (HK$198) and more.

Return to The Dining Room by BluHouse at dinner time for more of Chef Galeota’s signatures. Cappelli Alla Genovese homemade veal ‘cappelli’ pasta with Montoro onion sauce, Provolone del Monaco cheese, and Tasmanian black truffle; La Fiorentina, a 3 kg T-bone Scottoma 30 days dry-aged beef with traditional Tuscan anchovy dip are two of the must-try. Complete your meal with Nocciole del Piemonte e Cioccolato with Tuscan-style chocolate mousse, acacia honey, pear and rosemary.

Great For: Weekend brunches, casual lunches, special days celebrations — basically anything! 

FYI: The Dining Room by BluHouse has welcomed its soft opening last week.
