Description: Roberto Ugolini is originally from Rome (Italy) and since 1994 he has been working in Thailand as the Managing Director of Watermark Group. When the Group bought the Calderazzo Restaurant (since 12 years in Bangkok, every year the best Tatler Restaurant in Bangkok), he decided to rename it Ugolini Restaurant. The owner's Roman provenience influences the menu selection and the kitchen concept. The dishes are made with the finest ingredients and prepared by experienced Italian chef's and are a recipe for a culinary journey you will not forget. We welcome you to an authentic Italian experience in the hart of Bangkok.

“The quality went down hill... Now it went out of business!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2014

After this place was changed from Caderazzo, which was one of the best Italian place in Bangkok 10 years ago, to Ugolini 2-3 years ago, the quality of food went down termendiously. Pasta came out lifeless. Seafood are not fresh. And even though the menu was the same as what was Caderazzo, there was no improvement what so ever. Oh well, it went out of business now.

“tasty food, great bread, clean and good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

I've been to Ugolini with friends and also with large groups. Even if I try to find something wrong I can't. The food is always fresh, tasty and nicely presented. The portions are quite large and their bread selection, delicious.

The location is quiet and the atmosphere relaxed. Even though is not spectacular, it won't disappoint you and you will get our of there happy and satisfied.

“Nice and quiet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend in HK who visited it many times. My friend told me that it was an award winning restaurant. I was there for lunch on a Sat. The location was great. However, including me there were one 3 tables of guests.... at one time, mine was the one table of guest. May be their business was greatly affected by the demonstrations in Bangkok. Back to the food, I am no expert, I would say it was very good for the price. I had seafood soup and spaghetti. The seafood soap was very good. Setting was nice.

I will be back to this restaurant and try their other dishes.
