Don Alfonso 1890 is the ideal spot if you crave Italian fine dining.  Set in the Hotel Grand Lisboa Macau, the ambiance is elegant dining at its best.  I was instantly enticed by the luxurious decor and attentive service.  We sampled a tasting menu which highlighted a few of their delicious signature dishes, and thoroughly enjoyed every course.  Their talented chef only uses the best ingredients, mostly imported from Italy, and much of it is sourced from their own organic farm based in Southern Italy.  I was very impressed by the fact that they don't use cream or butter in their recipes, but only the finest olive oil ensuring each dish is fresh and full of flavour without any unnecessary heaviness.  You must try the home-made scallops gnocchi with sea urchins on a layer of black ink sauce which is the perfect combination of decadent flavours and textures. The artichoke in "Giudia style" was perfectly accompanied with black truffle and the traditional home-made fusilli was served with fresh Mediterranean clams and a light and flavorful zucchini sauce.  I have been wanting to try their Kagoshima beef tenderloin since spotting an image of it online and it met every single expectation and was the highlight of the night.  Every aspect of the dining experience offered at Don Alfonso incorporates high quality and attention to detail.  A must visit during your trip to Macau.
