Description: I am an executive Italian Chef with 30 years experience. I serve original Italian dishes with a touch of my personality, but also my own recipes issued after years of research. Because of the limited number of seats, in my restaurant you will find a intimate and friendly atmosphere, ideal for laid back evenings and romantic dinners.

i was stopping by cause that italian restaurant was in the neighboorhood of my hotel. i had a sprite and pasta gorgonzola with ham. the pasta and formaggi was good but the ham was hard to bite and also with bones in it - very low quality.
the surprise: for a cheap drink and a medium quality pasta - also not a big portion - i paid almost 800 baht. this is far too much for that. i know that good cheese is not easy to get in bangkok, but this price is really not fair. they do not write the price in the menu - really bad habit.
don't go there, they just rip you off.

Stopped in for lunch and the owner welcomed us. He recommended the Parma Ham pizza which turned out to be fantastic! I didn't think the price was that expensive compared to US prices. Worth the time and will go back often. Jim and Sai.

Since my last visit to La Tana a few months ago, I see that a TRIP ADVISOR sticker is now proudly displayed in the front window. I am glad that other clients like the restaurant as much as I do. There are certainly cheaper places for Italian dishes, but the Italian chef claims that all his dishes are home-made and that nothing is prepared in advance. My farorite is the "Tagliatelles with porcini mushrooms." The menu -- sort of a thick photo album with one picture per page -- is not easy to read and the prices indicated do not include taxes, so expect another 10% to 12% to be added to your bill.
The decorations could certainly be improved. The walls are covered with large photos of Italian food. In Thailand, you see pictures of the king everywhere. Here, you will find photos of the king and queen between a tiramisu and a grilled steak.

I'm a regular customer at La Tana, in my opinion they have the best pastas in bangkok, and they have great pizzas!

Like other restaurants who want to overprice the customers, they give you a photo album as a menu card where no prices are indicated. While they have suggestively modest prices for advertising, the bad surprise comes when you see the overpricing on your bill. Bangkok is full with excellent and reasonably priced places to skip this one.
