In the chaos of Bangkok, an osteria-style Italian restaurant begs to be the difference when it comes to a unique Italian dining experience. iO’s interiors boasts rustic wooded, copper brass and ceramic-tiled décor sets a homely ambiance. Conceptualized on the powerful history of an Italian ‘osteria’, iO Italian Osteria replicated its designs around it, proudly continuing the Italian tradition with a modern twist.
The aromas of freshly-baked bread and spices linger invitingly when we enter. Chef Anna Borrasi, Partner and Group Executive Chef, welcomed us with such hospitality and journeyed us through her own culinary journey with iO. She had sought out special ingredients from Italy to Thailand to create a variety of dishes beyond what we’ve ever tried. Every menu in iO Italian Osteria was inspired by Chef Anna who proudly presents signature dishes from all parts of Italy.
Unlike any other pizza experience, we tasted Chef Anna’s signature large size of pizza (720 THB). The pizza was a mixed 5 different toppings full of robust flavors served on a huge plate.
We also tried the soul of Italy – a famous dessert true to its sweetness, the Pistachio Tiramisu (290 THB). What a creamy delicious treat.
iO Italian Osteria originated in Singapore and opened in Thailand with 2 restaurants in Groove Central World and Terminal 21 Pattaya. It proudly offers a unique one-stop Italian dining experience consisting of an in-house bakery, a kitchen, and a bar. Chef Anna vows to never repeat a daily special, so be prepared to be surprised by iO’s daily menus.
