Forget that diet and get stuck into these multi-course feasts of pasta, pizza and tiramisu.

Starting this Thu, Sep 12-29BK Restaurant Week is upon us. That means you can take advantage of great dining deals at some of Bangkok’s best restaurants, with special multi-course set menus priced at just B750 or B1,000++. Here's a run down of all the Italian menus on offer.

 

Cantina Pizzeria & Italian Kitchen

 

A modern, industrial spin on Cantina Ari’s original underground wine cellar style, with exposed, rustic brick walls and archways, strings of garlic, round faux-candle chandeliers and wooden tables reminiscent of the small eateries you find scattered throughout Italy. Expect the likes of authentic Neapolitan-style pizzas, mushroom fettuccine pasta and coffee-soaked homemade tiramisu.

Cantina Wine Bar & Italian Kitchen

 

Friendly pizza and pasta house by Soho Hospitality (the group behind Above ElevenCharcoal and Havana Social). Themed after an Italian wine cellar, the wood-and-brick-heavy restaurant features hundreds of wine bottles, which are sold at rock-bottom prices. Food-wise, the kitchen matches the cozy vibe with simple dishes like bruschetta with San Daniele ham and stracciatella cheese, smoked burrata salad with heirloom tomatoes, pasta and Neapolitan-style pizza.

Carbar

 

Let the smell of freshly baked dough guide you to 72 Courtyard’s Carbar. Inside, moody industrial light fixtures hang above rustic wooden tables, framed on one side by a long and well-stocked wine bar. As the name suggests, this place is all about carbs—sorry, diet, you’ll have to wait till tomorrow. There’s a long list of wine with offerings rarely found in Bangkok, ranging from B260-320 per glass.

Da Vinci

 

This poolside restaurant will transport you to Italy with its red-and-white checkered tablecloths and murals of vinyards. Take in the breeze on the fourth floor of the hotel, while indulging in the seared duck breast with cherry red wine sauce or the grilled lamb rack with potato fondant.

Enoteca Italiana

 

Since 2004, Enoteca has been among the top of Bangkok’s Italian restaurant scene for all the right reasons: delicate food bursting with traditional flavors, rustic dining room, huge wine list and personable service. Head Chef Stefano Borra (formerly chef-owner of the one-Michelin-starred Ristorante VO) has kept up the reputation for comfortably priced degustation menus that aim for Piedmontese flavors.

Gianni Ristorante

 

Italian fine dining in Bangkok would not be where it is today without Gianni Favro. The longtime chef has delighted local rainmakers and power movers for the past 20 years with Mediterranean-inflected dishes, educating diners on the nuances of Dover sole, burrata and handmade pasta along the way. The refined setting echoes the restaurant’s reputation.

iO Osteria

 

Stave off that Italian eatery ennui with iO Osteria, which combines pizzeria, delicatessen, bakery and bar in a single venue. The menu won’t bore you either, skirting the likes of classic carbonara and spaghetti Bolognese for more esoteric, but still homey, eating from across Italy’s 20 regions. The orecchiette in a pork sausage and saffron sauce is a crowd-pleaser that goes well with red wine.

Jamie's Italian

 

This Italian restaurant by Britain’s biggest celebrity chef fuses British and Italian cuisines, all served in a comfortable setting free of formalities. In Bangkok, the menu of antipasti, pasta (try the prawn linguine) and pizza mimics the successful formula of branches worldwide. Elsewhere on the menu there are steaks, burgers, fish stew and pan-fried fish-of-the-day—as devised by Oliver and his mentor, Italian chef Gennaro Contaldo.

La Bottega Di Luca

 

Sardinia-born head chef Andrea Ortu ensures a menu that brims with serious D.O.P. produce scoured from the lengths of Italy—a rich Sicilian pistachio paste to cut through a plate of Brittany lobster and clam gnocchi, a Pecorino cheese foam atop unctuous lamb fragola, and classics like founder Luca Appino's black truffle cheese risotto. The classy dining room is primed for special occasions, while the dark wooden balcony offers a more relaxed vibe.

La Casa Nostra

 

Taking over a stately old home on Sathorn’s tiny Soi Goethe, this Italian restaurant has well-heeled crowds going gaga for its low-key vibe, wine list that’s arguably the best in town, and polished yet rustic dishes. Come the cooler months, diners flock to the cozy outdoor terrace for the pick of the bottles from the wine cellar and chef Nino Scognamillo’s rustic-yet-refined Italian cuisine. Juicy grilled meats are joined on the menu by “nonna-style” gnocchi and premium produce like Cantabrian anchovies.

Medici

 

From a dining room that looks like an Italian wine cellar tucked into the rusting rafters of an Art Deco skyscraper, Medici fuses the cuisines of Italy's Mediterranean coastline with influences from its neighboring countries. Here they have also combined dinner with theater, from rich operatic performances, to live contemporary jazz, to special event entertainment. The selection of wines, cocktails and spirits remains as extensive as always.

Peppina

 

The go-to for authentic Naples-style pizza, made to stringent Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana rules. Starring a tangy and pillow-soft crust, only slightly chewy with charred bits from the blazing hot oven, even the simplest pies, like the Marinara with its perfectly acidic San Marzano tomato sauce, shine—though you’d be remiss not to feast on the range of pastas and fine meats in this warm but well-polished space.

Inspired by the Neapolitans who emigrated to France and the USA, Italian chef and restaurateur Luca Appino (La Bottega di Luca) takes a cross-continental approach to pizzas. Pumped out of massive ovens from Italy, the pizzas here are delicate and refined affairs that often bear extravagant toppings sourced from Italy and France—think mortadella, truffles and fior di latte.

Sensi

 

This welcoming Sathorn back-street institution makes the most of its incredible produce. Aside from a la carte, chef Stefano Merlo’s tasting menus offer a fun, interactive version of Italian fine dining, pairing dainty creations like a burratta-stuffed tomato caprese salad with heftier meat and pasta plates, including darn-near the best lasagna you’re likely to find. One of the first venues to sell out all seats in 2018 - early bookings are a must!
