Hong Kong’s neighbourhood pasta bar, Pici, opened the doors of its first venue five years ago on St Francis Yard, Wan Chai, serving only hand rolled pasta made fresh daily with authentic Italian recipes that are simple, yet full of flavour and character. The concept soon found a welcoming audience amongst the Hong Kong dining public, and since 2017 the Pici brand has grown to 8 total locations across Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, New Territories and Shanghai, with a handful of delivery kitchens.

From day one, the Pici team has strived to bring a unique ethos of quality dining, Italian authenticity, handmade artisanal craftsmanship, and great value. And thanks to the continued support of the dining community and the hard work of hundreds of team members, the brand has been able to persevere and thrive. Now to commemorate its half-decade special anniversary, the Pici team is proud to announce a series of exciting events and new menu launches for guests this summer.

Pici’s 9th restaurant opening in Causeway Bay, followed by a Pasta Giveaway

Pici’s remarkable story of growth will carry on with the opening of its newest location, this time in Causeway Bay. Set to open in July, the new 60-seater Pici will be located on 38 Yiu Wa Street, bringing handmade pasta made fresh daily and homestyle Italian treats right to the heart of one of Hong Kong’s busiest shopping, dining and entertainment districts.

This is the ninth Pici to open following the flagship in Wan Chai, subsequent branches in Central, Tsim Sha Tsui, Lai Chi Kok, Sha Tin, Kennedy Town, Tseung Kwan O and overseas franchise inShanghai. All together, Pici feeds over 4,000 guests daily.

In celebration of this latest Pici opening, the team will continue its tradition of hosting a free pasta giveaway outside its newest location. On 4 August, guests can come line up to receive one of over 500 portions of free pasta and treats being given away as a neighbourhood welcome.
