The Optimist was the second restaurant to open under Pirata Group after the flagship Italian restaurant, Pirata. The Optimist’s continued success has been pivotal to the group’s growth and development in Hong Kong. In the intervening years, Pirata Group has expanded to 11 different brands and 15 venues in various districts across Hong Kong, bringing delectable, international cuisine to diners—home-style Italian cuisine, neighbourhood pasta and pizza bar, Nikkei izakaya, modern Japanese and Indian flavours etc. Pirata Group co-founder Manuel Palacio shares: “Even though there are several restaurants to choose from Pirata Group, we have only one motive – to create extraordinary, memorable dining experiences centred around quality food, great service and value for money. We can’t wait to bring more exciting concepts to our guests.”
