La Scala at The Sukothai Bangkok has been known throughout the city as one the finest Italian restaurants for over a decade. But following a complete renovation, this elegant venue has reimagined itself for a new generation of Bangkok's fine-dining set. La Scala is still delivers five-star service and impeccable presentation of its gourmet creations, but they have added a tasting menu if you want to try some seasonal creations from Tuscan-native Chef David Tamburini.
The new layout has removed the central cooking island and spread the tables to make a more relaxed dining experience. Still, don’t be surprised if Chef David drops by your table to make sure you are fully satisfied with your meal.
The tasting menu will delight fans of genuine Italian cuisine. The clean, earthy flavours shine through in dishes like artichoke salad, which is carefully balanced with petals and thistles, and complimented by a Parmesan cheese, pine nut milk and egg yolk. The play of flavours is fantastic. The seafood dish is a Hokkaido scallop, served with herring caviar alongside Brussel sprouts and kale jus. A real highlight is the lean cut of Spanish lamb, served with radish. The seven-course taster menu costs 2,900 baht.

If you’re looking for a more casual dining experience, you’re welcome to come and sample a bowl of pasta or one of the excellent handcrafted wood-fired pizzas. They’re delicious, but they take up to a half-hour to bake. The restaurant also has an Italian mixologist, Roberto, who has some signature creations based on Italian cocktails. The Americano and Foam is a great take on a negroni, which is more balanced than the original.
Open for lunch and dinner, there’s an antipasto lunch buffet that range from 750 baht to 1,100 baht. The lunch dishes are a bit lighter than those served at dinner, such as eggplant tagliatelle and the puglia seafood soup.
