Spaghetti 360 403, 4/F, Windsor House Causeway Bay Tel: 2504 1878 Grub: Japanese/Italian Vibe: The restaurant occupies a rather oddly-shaped area. Tables curve off around corners and are surrounded by ornate balustrades and tinted mirrors. Who to take: Whoever you've dragged around/dragged you around on a shopping spree. What's hot: The menu is quite varied, with an interesting mix of Japanese and Italian dishes. The snack and starter section offers an impressive line-up, with soups, spicy dumplings, grilled ox tongue, fried oysters and French fries with meat sauce and cheese. The eggplant au gratin looks a little plain, but more than makes up for it in taste. With the namesake dishes, there is a choice of the usual Bolognese and carbonara sauces, but there are also fusion offerings, such as spaghetti with pork, mushroom and sesame. Spaghetti with bacon and mushrooms is a highlight: it comes with at least three kinds of mushroom, and is garnished with a sheet of seaweed. Pizzas have also been given a Japanese twist. They come with a thin or thick crust. The thin is very thin: almost too fragile to support the toppings, which include pork and kimchi, eel and spring onion and chicken with mango sauce. The smoked salmon and wasabi sauce would have been great had it come with the familiar, bright-green wasabi. It's actually wasabi-flavoured mayo: not necessarily bad, but good to know before you choose it. There is also a range of salads and a handful of Japanese curries. What's not: Most of the desserts are ice cream-based, and our waiter didn't seem to think serving chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream on a warm plate would be a problem. Parmesan needs to be a standard condiment on all tables. Noise seems to ricochet off the walls. It's probably a result of the layout, but the general hubbub of conversation, combined with the kitchen staff, who sounded at one point like they were smashing crockery rather than washing it, can get annoying. Cost: Snacks range from HK$32 to HK$42. Most of the other dishes are between HK$65 and HK$80. Desserts are HK$20-HK$38. Since most dishes are good for sharing, two people could eat for about HK$120.
