Italian restaurant Sukhumvit

Recommended Posts

Went to an Italian restaurant around Sukhumvit bout 4 years ago. May have been soi 13 or 11, cant remember. Looked like it had been there for years, Italian owner. Anyone know the place Im talking about?

 

If not good pizza around Nana Asoke area?

There are many Italian restaurants on Sukhumvit Road, too many to mention. If soi 11, Limoncello comes to mind. Via Vai in soi 8 is another in the general area with Italian owners that feels like it has been there forever. Both of these two are good, but there are many, many good Italian restaurants on Sukhumvit.

Opera in Phrom Pong has been there years, but it looks a little tired now - I think the original owner set up Rossanos, Asoke area, which is worth a visit.

 

My personal favourite is in Soi 31, Bella Napoli, but that may be too far up Sukhumvit.

Plus Pala Pizza at the Asoke BTS station ground floor, if you like the square cut styles of pizza, but the food in general there is quite good.

 

Pizza and the City at the end of the first jog of Soi 11 is pretty good for Napoli style, if I recall.

Rosso Di Sera a ways into Soi 15 was pretty good as well, and pretty authentic for BKK.

I like Bella Napoli as well.

To the OP, that would be Limoncello

Limoncello would be my guess. Used to be very good, but the last few times we have been it hasn't been as impressive. Seems like the father and son (?) who used to be there are no longer.

Is Lemoncello any relation to the one in CM, that closed down (for at least a while)?  Some of these places seem very doable, and possibly a good value for modern Sukhumvit.  In the States, I lived in the East Bay for 6 years and there was superb italian there.  The Italians brought artichokes to Cali 100 years ago+, and the SF made salami is famous, partly because it is made with no artificial cooling or heating.  But, I always viewed them as either Northern or Southern, which is overly general, but I would expect to see veal in a northern place, and spaghetti/meatballs and lots of good red sauces at southern..of course the sicilian pizza can be great comfort food for an American...screw the overcooked roast and prison veggies, lol..

Italian food is a large bowl of Pasta Fazool (Pasta e fagioli for you non NYers) with Pickled Bannana Peppers and fresh bread. let me know if its on the menu anywhere.

 

I have found the gravy here to be particularly tasteless. Must be the tomats

I like Via Vai. Expect to pay around 1500/2000 Bahts per person for a 3 course meal + wine and coffee. I go there when Monsoon, which is right in front, looks too crowded. I have good memories from Kinaree which is just a bit further down the road, but the food isn't up anymore to the vibe of the place. Delightful little corner this soi 8.

A bit further down the road but I would recommend Peppina on Soi 33, great italian food.

Dining out in Bangkok is now pricier than in some European countries. But even when I want a good steak at home followed by some proper cheese, all with one or two bottles of wine it costs me 2000 to 3000 Bahts for two. I don't do this every day though... Giving an education to my girls, food and sex is all I have left. Food and sex might go soon....

I used to go to Via Vai for their lunch buffet that included an entree and then salad and such bar... Used to run a couple hundred baht (dunno if they still offer that)... And would order their pizzas from time to time, which probably are in the 300-400 baht range, though a lot are also under 300b, depending on toppings... So it's certainly possible to eat for less, if one skips the wine and other niceties....

Via Vai pizza is well out of step with the current quality available at Soho pizza or Sfizio.

 

The lunch deal was a good offering some years ago as John pointed out.
