|The suprema pizza at Piccolo in Kennedy Town|
And one neighbourhood that's benefiting from the growth of eateries is Kennedy Town -- specifically on one street called Davis Street.
Along this one small block are several places, each of them well known in their own right.
|The calamari starter was a definite winner|
We tried Piccolo yesterday and have to say we were pleased with the quality and the price point.
It's a small place and we arrived at 6pm and since we didn't make a reservation we were told to vacate the table by 7.30pm.
This was no problem since the food came quickly. We were seated right by the kitchen where we could see the massive brick oven heated with wood and the fresh pizzas constantly going in and cooked ones out.
|We also liked the proscuitto pizza with rocket and parmesan|
The proscuitto was our favourite with the fresh flavours, while the supreme had a spicy bite from the chillis unless you carefully picked them off ahead of time.
We also enjoyed the appetisers of the warm salad with pumpkin and cherry tomatoes (HK$80) and the calamari (HK$85). We could have had a few more chunks of pumpkin in the salad, but it was nice, lightly seasoned, while the calamari had a nice batter with herbs so it was crispy and tender.
Including two lime sodas, the bill for three came to HK$635. Service was fast, attentive and nice. The server constantly refilled our small glasses with water.

Definitely will be back for more pizza soon!
