In the midst of bustling Central Hong Kong, Venédia epitomises the magical aesthetics of a grancaffè with elegance and eclectic lingo. Cherry-picked Venetian artisans custom-made the white marble terrazzo flooring and hand blown the two turquoise Murano glass chandeliers embellishing the scene. The velvet banquettes, luxurious Poltrona Frau leather chairs and baroque-inspired paneling, wrap the venue in warm purple hues. The result is a space, grand yet intimate, that captures the soul and grace of Venice.
Revel in the old-world charm as you clamour for a cup of espresso and artisan pastries; enjoy our all-day dining menu featuring authentic and wholesome Italian fare, or sweeten the day up with homemade gelato and desserts, amidst the beautifully timeless décor of Venédia, with the sound of nostalgic tunes and scent of coffee bracing the air.
CHEF FILIPPO FERDINANDI
A rising star of the culinary scene, chef Ferdinandi has only been in the industry for over a decade but he has already traveled the world expanding his culinary repertoire.
Instead of a cooking school, he gained his experience first-hand working in kitchens all over the world. It began in one Michelin star restaurant Antonello Colonna in Rome where he started as a kitchen assistant (commis). Moving to Milan afterward, chef Ferdinandi gradually worked his way up to sous chef in different ristorantes and five-star hotels including the Bvlgari Hotel and the Europa & Regina Hotel in Venice.
Before arriving in Hong Kong, he would display his talent at the Kulm Hotel in St. Moritz, Switzerland, learned Japanese techniques and skills at Sydney’s Cho Cho San, as well as becoming head chef of Salt Meat Cheese in the Circular Quay of the iconic Sydney Harbour in Australia, and even headed IT Tulum, one of the top Italian restaurant in Mexico.
In 2021, chef Ferdinandi became the Chef de Cuisine at Spiga. In early 2023, he formally joined the Octavo team as part of Octavium’s team. Showing great skills and leadership qualities, chef Ferdinandi was formally named Venédia’s Executive Chef this July and is ready to remake the elegant ristorante’s menu.
