Repulse Bay is brimming with an abundance of beachside eats, from the vibrant Sip Song to the well-loved Limewood. With the recent reopenings of beaches across Hong Kong, the family-friendly location is back to its peak occupancy, with many sun-seekers looking for their weekend fix. Nestled within The Pulse, Amalfitana Artisan Pizza Bar stays true to its fresh, doughy goodness namesake—pizza—and serves a rich selection of sharing platters in a casual setting. Ashley Higham dropped by the artisan pizzeria to try the snacks, signature pizza, and a couple of fruity cocktails on a cool Autumn afternoon.

Sitting in the open-fronted restaurant tiled in turquoise and slate hues, with views of a sandy bay, tall palm trees and colourful hilltop houses, we could be in the Cinque Terre rather than in Hong Kong. Amalfitana is situated in The Pulse in Repulse Bay and is inspired by the beautiful scenery of the Amalfi Coast and its seaside eats. With dog-friendly tables up front, the authentic Italian pizzeria welcomes guests with its friendly staff and open pizza oven.
