Description: A class all its own - La Scala Restaurant in Bangkok is a triumph of innovative interior design paired with classical Italian cuisine, perfectly concocted. Just as the design and decor unite the contemporary with a Thai cultural context, so the cuisine presents pure traditional recipes with unparalleled creative flair. In keeping with the attention to detail that makes La Scala so special, great care has been taken to ensure that the wines present the best choices to match menu selections. Subtle, unobtrusive and yet finely attuned to the rhythms of the day, music at La Scala is perfectly pitched to accompany fine dining.

“Always the best”
Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

Every time I am in Bangkok, I have to stop by and enjoy the delicious food of La Scala. It is so refined that is bordering French rather than purely Italian.

Pizzas are the best you can find anywhere and the chocolate puddings are to die for.

It is not cheap but well worth the experience.

“Perfect Italian food in a heavenly hotel”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

'Cool' inside and agreeable terrace outside. But the most important is the tasty Italian food. We enjoyed the truffle diner. Also the presentation is of high level. Also your eyes like eating.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed January 17, 2014 via mobile

The waitresses are attentive, polite and professional. The wine and food menu's have plenty of choice.

We had a couple of pizzas as mains with great red wine and some sorbet for dessert. An amuse bouche arrived before the mains and a complimentary selection of chocolates with limoncello after dessert...

Excellent quality of food and service well worth the price, highly recommend.

“Better Italian than I get at home!”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

Really, the food was delicious! We had the gnocchi, an exquisite Australian steak and a rocket salad. All perfectly executed. Sophisticated Asian decor.

“Good international food”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

Our party of 3 went here with an expat who has been in Asia for nearly 5 months. We wanted something quiet, not overrun with tourists, and international.

Generally outside the major hotels, buffalo mozzarella, fresh bread and olive oil, and fresh pizza and pasta are not readily available, even in SE Asia's most cosmopolitan cities like Bangkok. Unsurprisingly La Scala is also in a major hotel but it is worth a trip even from the hotels with competing italian fare.

The service was quite good and unpretentious; the food was well presented and generously portioned; the list of Australian, French, and Californian wines sufficient but not outrageously long or overly priced; and the espresso was unexpectedly excellent.

The atmosphere outside by the pool is nice on a cool evening (despite the unfortunate parking garage view) and the outdoor fans ensure a more comfortable temperature on hotter days.

Take note, the pizza is not traditional thin or even deep crust. It was actually more a 'pizza pita' with warm mascarpone cheese, prosciutto, and rocket salad inside an unbelievably thin crust. It was wholly unorthodox and also very delicious. The waitress said it was sufficient only for an individual but the pizza's are more than sufficient for two people to split, especially if sharing an appetizer salad. The rest of the entrees (such as the pastas) were much smaller and not appropriate for sharing.

In short, a creative, dependable, reasonably priced for the quality establishment that is worth a trip and deserves the distinction its received on TA for its quality over competing Italian spots in Bangkok.
