La Tavola Restaurant at Renaissance Bangkok
Modern Italian Restaurant in Chit Lom0
La Tavola Bangkok serves delicious interpretations of pan-Mediterranean dishes in a stylish dining room. Specialising in risotto and proud of its 11 types of pasta made completely from scratch, this is far more accomplished than your average hotel Italian restaurant.
The glass and stone dining room is full of modern touches such as an open kitchen and full-length windows. Owing to the size of the restaurant you can choose to sit in the central areas, the more private booths or even in the separate bar area. The ambiance at La Tavola feels fresh and clean at lunch, but is best experienced at dinner when the candlelight creates an added sense of elegance.

For appetisers, go for the scallop and foie gras (550 baht), a serving of two plump, seared shellfish with a rich duck liver and lentils, snow peas adding texture and orange adding citrusy overtones. For something more traditional, the Caprese salad is suitably fresh thanks to homemade pesto and delightfully light Buffalo mozzarella (450 baht).
The earthy porcini mushroom ravioli with seared scallop and a lemon and black truffle sauce is bold and firm to the bite. Served as five large pasta packets, it is worth 600 baht. For a meat course, a modern take on an Italian classic will satisfy the meat-lovers: the lamb shank osso-bucco (600 baht) is full of flavour and served with an expertly prepared Milanese risotto and a sprinkling of gremolata. The panna cotta is highly recommended to end the meal, spruced up with candy floss, fresh strawberries and a piquant red berries compote (325 baht).
If you intend to dine for lunch, it’s worth noting the great value Set Lunch which costs 400 baht (not including tax or service) for three courses, available Tuesday to Sunday.
The wine menu at La Tavola Bangkok has an impressive 18 by-the-glass labels to choose from, as well as several pages by the bottle. The price isn’t the cheapest you will find in Bangkok (this is a high-end hotel, after all) but the ‘by the glass’ offerings appeal to different price levels and have been sourced from around the world – a big plus in Bangkok, as wine is still staggeringly pricey in some high-end Italian restaurants around town. Wine by the bottle starts from 1,500 baht, but we recommend the La Braccesca Montepulciano for 2,220 baht (available by the glass for 440 baht).
Located on the second floor of Renaissance Bangkok Hotel, La Tavola is two minutes’ walk from the Chit Lom BTS Skytrain Station making it incredibly easy to find. For a relaxing meal during a shopping trip or for a whole evening of choice Italian dishes, La Tavola is recommended.
