Review

Setting

For possibly the finest modern Italian cuisine in Thailand prepared to perfection by Iron Chef-winning Sardinian Alessandro Frau. There’s a cellar full of superstar wines, plus very attentive service and a sophisticated ambience.

Rating : 16/20

Food

Both of the signature nine-course degustation menus are outstanding and include house specialties such as 45-minute slow-cooked egg on a parmesan cheese fondue with black truffle and crispy pancetta powder; yellow fin tuna tartar with burrata cheese and smoked caviar; and homemade Trenette pasta with vongole, Maine lobster and bottarga. All the pastas and even simple dishes, such as the wood-fired gourmet pizzas, beef carpaccio with pickled artichokes and wild rocket salad, seem to take on magical properties of taste and flavour when prepared by Frau’s large team in his exemplary modern kitchen. The magic extends to the dessert selection. Sebadas, traditional Sardinian fried pastry stuffed with young cheese and eucalyptus honey, is not to be missed.

Rating : 38/40

Wine

A stunning galaxy of stars amidst the 450 plus labels are marshalled, recommended and paired by Sardinian sommelier Pavlic Matteo.
