Twenty six years of being “Salute by Sorrento,” and moving its location aound Bangkok from Silom to Sathorn, this second generation Sorrento is perhaps the best back-to-the basics but with a tad of new techniques up their sleeves. Not only is Sorrento one of the first Italian restaurants in Bangkok, it has chef and staff who have been working there for over 20 years. Because they consider the restaurant their home, guests are are welcomed to dine with the warmest, friendliest of service.
Eat: “Authentic mix of the Old with the New World, dishes here recalls eating from a home-cooked meal by your very hip grandmother,” one of the partners describes Sorrento, and we agree. Highly recommended is “Pizza Zalute” with stuffed mascarpone, mozzarella, parmigiana, and white truffle oil. Try the “Linguine Alle Vongole,” which makes a delightful seafood pasta. Finish the dining experience rightfully with “Panna Cotta” dusted with fresh Madagascar vanilla.
Drink: Created by the very talented Diageo competitor from South Africa, the award-winning cocktail that is part of the menu is called, “The Butterfly Effect.” For those more in favor of mocktails, rest assured that they make superb ones that do not taste like the basic fruit juice. Nevertheless, sticking to what Italians is best known for: wine and dine, is your best choice. There is a wide range of wines to choose from.
Visit: Open daily from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. (till midnight on Friday-Saturdays), Valet service available (Sathorn Soi 10, 02-234-9933)
