Boss of my friend highly suggests this Italian restaurant. We arrived a bit before lunchtime. In the restaurant, there are only 4 customers in a table. We really do not know whether it is so good as suggested. The restaurant has 2 portions, indoor and outdoor. Since it is now in winter, it is better to lunch indoor. Overall area in Gaia is not large. Tables are reasonably aligned. There is no need to fear that the diners at next table can hear your chat.

We ordered 2 lunch sets of $228 each. The main courses include rice, fish or beef. We order “Risotto with porcini mushrooms and Parmigiano” and “Red snapper with sage, tomato & capers”.

Before long, homemade bread nicely displayed in basket is served in front of us. Bread is still warm. Waiter pours vinegar and olive oil to a plate.

Either “Swiss chard & borlotti beans earthy soup” or “Daily Selection of antipasto buffet style” is the second item to serve. We both order the daily soup. It is a vegetable soup with beans, very natural in taste, and has no meat in the soup. The antipasto includes salads, sliced sausage and ham. Maybe, we may try the antipasto next time.

Rice is served in a big white plate. The portion is just enough for a normal person. The rice cooked in cream and mushroom is still hot when served. We only know that it is delicious. Red snapper (鯛魚) is in very small portion. The size is about 2.5 inches times 4.5 inches. There are also cauliflower (花椰菜). broccoli (西生菜) and quite of lot of capers (花蕾) beneath the fish. Capers, brownish grey in color, are very small in size (about 0.5 cm in diameter) and have a bean-like texture. Snapper is lightly pan-fried on both sides, very palatable and fresh. We are impressed by snapper’s good taste. From these 2 main courses, we understand the reason of Gaia to set the lunch at such price. It is value for money, except the portion is really small, especially the fish.

Since there are many offices in the Central, the restaurant is full during lunchtime. It is suggested to reserve a table in advance. Dinner set is priced at around $600 per guest. In view of food portion and its quality, it is priced a bit higher. Anyway, Gaia is really a good choice of Italian food.
