With entrances on Sukhumvit Soi 27 and 31, Enoteca is easy to find. We arrived just in time for our reservation and were warmly welcomed by Nicola, the charming and charismatic co-owner and manager. His father created the restaurant 11 years ago and it is still a big hit in Bangkok!
Enoteca - Chef Marco and Co-Owner Nicola
Their secret to success is simple: focus on the originality and true taste of simple ingredients mixed with high-end products. And of course, the talented chef Marco also has a few secrets up his sleeves...
Enoteca is located in a simple and beautifully arranged garden with simple and elegant seating and wine barrels used as cocktail tables in the smoking area.
Enoteca - Garden
Enoteca - Interior
The entire layout is positioned to best see the open bar, where homemade Parma ham and a selection of real Italian imported cheese and antipasti are beautifully displayed. By 7:30 pm, the restaurant was pleasantly packed with tables, letting off a strong sense of confidence and elegance.
The Food & Drinks
Nicola recommended us to try the surprising Enoteca degustation menu and we glowingly agreed to the five-course meal. When I say it was a surprise, I mean it! We had absolutely no idea what we would be eating.
Enoteca - Tomato Gelatine with Ricotta Burrata
We started with tomato gelatine stuffed with ricotta burrata and drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Perfect when paired with a glass of Chardonnay!
Enoteca - Pumpkin and Ginger Sorbet
A little something sweet then came our way in the form of pumpkin and ginger sorbet and parmesan and truffle ice cream topped with grated truffle.
Enoteca - Vitello Tonnato
The first entree course consisted of ravioli filled with foie gras and black truffle sauce and vitello tonnato, a cooked cold veal with tuna-mayo sauce and homemade pickles.
Countless divine flavors started to override my senses as Nicola and his very professional staff made sure we were looked after properly. I was officially in heaven…
Enoteca - Al Dente Spaghetti Sicilia
The second entree course included anchovy with fennel wild sauce and al dente spaghetti Siciliana and fettuccine filled with liquid ricotta cheese, sausage and black truffle with grated pecorino cheese. It was a genuine flavor explosion.
Enoteca - Ravioli
The homemade ravioli was our favorite. The liquid ricotta and light cream sauce hit beautifully and deliciously my stomach. The sausage and black truffle were delicate, while the fresh thin pasta uniquely completed it.
Because it is very “normal” to have a second main course after four entrees, we then received the roasted pigeon coated with pistachios and shallot confit, which melted under the knife. This was an unusual and successful dish, the shallots having some sweetness and the pistachio nuts adding texture.
Enoteca - Roasted Pigeon
We were also delighted with the codfish with black potato puree sprinkled with fried garlic crumbles. If you're looking for a healthy option, this is it! It was so light and refreshing.
Enoteca - Moist Nougat Chocolate Cake with Gold Leaf
To top it all off, we finished with the amazing dessert selection of aperol and gelatin orange-flavored sorbet on a cloud of prosecco mousse and billiete with whipping cream and moist nougat chocolate cake with gold leaf.
The Bottom Line
The price range of the main course dishes starts from 490 to 1,450 B. The surprise four-course menu is 1,650++ B and the five-course menu is 1,950++ B.
Enoteca - Entrance
Enoteca is absolutely worth a try for the fantastic flavor experience. The entire degustation menu comes in portions half the size of the a la carte menu, but you’ll be full either way! Without any doubt, it is THE BEST AUTHENTIC ITALIAN RESTAURANT in Bangkok.
