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.
Other mouth-watering mains include Angus Beef, Herb Crusted Lamb Cutlets, Grilled Yellowtail with Sicilian Sauce, and Diavola style Spicy Chicken.
The pasta selection is impressive, with every variety represented in medium or large portions. Don’t miss the Spaghettoni with Render Meat Balls, Risotto with Pan Fried Tiger Prawns or the Traditional Lasagne. Pizzas are a big draw and Chef Danilo features no less than ten Napoletana styles on the menu, so there’s something for everybody.
The desserts are divine, notably the Homemade Tiramisu and the Lemon Sorbet, while the stock of excellent Italian wines is almost endless. Attico is simply exceptional, a restaurant in the finest of Italian traditions.
Open daily for dinner between the hours of 6:00 PM and 12:00 PM; Attico is an ideal location for family dining, business dinners, romantic meals and unwinding with friends.
