Frankly, Attico at Radisson Blu Plaza is a great choice. It ticks all the boxes. Well located on the 28th floor of this five-star Sukhumvit hotel, a short walk from the Asoke BTS station, award-winning Attico is the only rooftop Italian restaurant in Bangkok.
Views of the city from the elegant main dining room and two alfresco lounge terraces are spectacular.
Designed in the style of a Tuscan villa, the restaurant makes the most of high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling picture windows with warm dark woods, exposed brickwork and decorative wine barrels.
Front and centre is a semi-open kitchen and butcher counter with a display of Italian charcuterie, giving the place with an inviting and relaxed mood. The wood furniture and a semi-private room for family style dining add a feeling of comfort while the floor to ceiling windows frame the dramatic city skyline.
Overseeing the authentic Tuscan kitchen is Chef Danilo Aiassa from Piedmont in Italy, one of Bangkok’s most experienced chefs, having worked for the Four Seasons and the Mandarin Oriental, among other famous hotels. He’s always available to explain his amazing daily specials and recommend dishes from Attico’s extensive menu.
Attico’s cuisine is described as ‘traditional taste, with modern techniques’ focusing on high quality imported and locally sourced ingredients. Popular favourites include the homemade pasta and gnocchi, traditional Italian soups, glorious salads, cold cuts with cheese, premium antipasti and Attico’s heavenly home-baked breads. The menu features a number of highly recommended ‘signature dishes’ for each category. The signature pasta, for example, is the delicious Homemade Tagliatelle with Imported Boston Lobster, while the recommended mains include Traditional Italian grill 1.5 kg T-Bone Fassona, Whole Italian Sea Bass, and the Classic Grill Pork Ribs Rosticciata.
