The Overview

A native of Umbria, Chef Marco Gubbiotti is lighting up a modern menu with his hometown flavors at Il Milione Bar & Ristorante Italiano in Central Hong Kong. As the official culinary consultant for the Umbria Region Administration, Gubbiotti is arguably the global authority on rich central Italian tastes, so it's no surprise that the Il Milione menu dazzles with dishes like passatelli pasta, made with breadcrumbs and Sorrento lemon, served with lobster in a lobster-tail broth with samphire. "In Umbria, we nourish the earth, and the earth nourishes us with its harvest. We take the produce and, with minimal intervention, create dishes that unlock the freshness of the flavors," says Gubbiotti. "My vision is to bring the true Umbrian essence to the world." The restaurant, named after the travel chronicles of Marco Polo, is Gubbiotti's first restaurant in Asia.
