Best of all – a brand new menu is launched this month
Gregarious, chatty, and suitably stout, half-Thai half-Italian chef Dario was born in Lombardy and raised in Bangkok. Before joining Attico last year, he was head chef at the popular El Bottega di Luca on Sukhumvit 49, and his career to date – including stints at prestigious establishments such as the three-Michelin starred Da Vittorio in Bergamo, Italy, and the Michelin-starred Allegro at Four Seasons Prague, Czech Republic – shines through in the quality of his cuisine.
His new menu, officially launched this month, is based around rustic, family-style servings and, as you’d expect from a restaurant of this caliber, high quality ingredients come as standard, and presentation is top notch.
For mains, the Paccheri col Cinghiale (Paccheri pasta with wild boar ragout braised in Chianti red wine sauce and summer truffle sauce. B490) gets our vote – its rich and piquant sauce, slathered over al dente pasta, is a perfect match for the subtle gamey tastes of the boar. We also enjoyed the Branzino al Posillipo (Grilled Sea bass from Brittany, served with fine herbs and frutti di mare sauce, sautéed mi crustacean, grilled artichokes, and potato “sabbiate.” B1,290), whose large flakes of flavorsome meat slipped from the bone yet provided plenty of bite. Also hitting the sweet spot of culinary satisfaction was the Costata di Manzo Wagyu, Attico’s signature Wagyu Prime rib (B390/100g), cooked medium-rare and arriving tender and chock-full of flavour.
Hearty portions perfect for sharing are the order of the day at Attico, but we couldn’t leave without sampling dessert. And we’re glad we did, because the Carosello di Dolci, a selection of Attico’s classic desserts, including Tiramisù, Pannacotta, Chocolate fondant, and Vanilla Crema cotta (B890), provided a fitting end to an excellent meal. We will definitely return for more.
