You might forget that you are in Bangkok after an hour of dining at this stellar Italian eatery, the food certainly is divine enough to make believe that this really is Bologna. Hidden down a quiet side street and located in a comfortable old home, Il Bolognese just might be the best Italian restaurant in town. It's a full on professional dining experience on all levels here, from the manager constantly coming around to tables to check on diners' experiences, to the free palette cleaning sorbets to the free shots of limoncello to top off the meal. The wood fire oven pizzas here are sublime, with creations like gorgonzola and speck using fine imported ingredients. The burrata cheese plates are melt-in-your-mouth-watering orgasmic, and the pastas are all painstakingly hand made. The entire experience from setting to food is romantic and elegant, and this is a top notch place to impress a date or go out to celebrate a big event. It's not cheap, but compared to neighboring spots that serve far inferior food at inflated prices, it is a steal. Highly recommended.
- Sathorn's Best Restaurants: "The best way to get here is to take the BTS skytrain to Chong Nonsi, then walk down to Sathorn Road and down Soi 7 to the end, where the restaurant is on the left. Reservations are a good idea here, as it gets crowded."
- Best for Sathorn's Best Restaurants Because: For Bangkok's most professional Italian restaurant with outstanding food, Il Bolognese gets raves.
