Rossano’s is an established name in the Italian food scene in Bangkok. The super friendly Executive Chef Matteo Verini leads the kitchen team here - dishing out specials and Italian classics in a spacious house in downtown Sukhumvit.
The interior touches in Rossano’s reminded us of a typical country house in Tuscany, Italy - pastoral and cozy. Grappa bottles line the wall niches and Rossano’s signature pig mascots give a warm welcome.
Our lunch started with a plate of small bites from the region of Liguria, where Chef Matteo is originally from. Its Mediterranean coastline is known as the Italian Riviera, with several fishing villages that are a must-visit. Next up, we sampled the Rossano’s selection - a wide range of meat and cheeses from across Italy. Highlights for us were the mozzarella on tomatoes, fried squid, eggplant and Mortadella - a famous cured pork sausage from Bologna.
The Meat and Foie Gras Homemade Ravioli was an Italian masterpiece – the truffle and sage sauce came together perfectly. We recommend a full plate to yourself! Rossano’s Homemade “Tordelli” filled with Patanegra and served in creamy Burrata sauce was also an absolute winner.
Live baby clams and spaghetti with garlic, olive oil and white wine, is one of those heavenly Italian recipes that is oooh, so comforting. The only reason we paced our eating at this juncture was the imminent arrival of the tomahawk.
Here in Rossano’s, the Wagyu Steak Tomahawk is cut and served table side. Most cameras will be armed and ready to video this pivotal moment. Plated with potatoes and a medley of vegetables, you are now ready to devour! The knife was custom-made too.
To mark the end of a great lunch, we sampled the dark chocolate demisphere, with white chocolate mousse, coffee, rum and salted caramel sauce - a plateful of everything we love in life, really - and how we wished it was a full sphere instead :) As Chef Matteo walked us to the door, we know we want to come back, again and again - to this Tuscan country house in
