I have a new favorite Italian restaurant in Bangkok by the name of Sfizio. Move over Appia, there's a new rival restaurant in town offering diverse and authentic Italian food in Bangkok. I came here not expecting much but the first thing that struck me was the ambiance, it's extremely small and unique in design - very narrow space but chic and modern restaurant offering only 6 or 7 tables. Reservations here are an absolute must given the quality and authenticity of the food. I began my dining experience with a Negroni apertif which I'm not used to drinking but it was authentic and unique. We began our meal with perhaps the most impressive course featuring the special cream of pumpkin soup (vellutata di zucca) which tasted 'out of this world' ! It was tangy and so full of flavor I wanted one more bowl. Next we tried the Romana salad with the crispy pork cheek which totally made this dish excellent. Without the crispy pork bits, this salad would have been bland. Next, we tried a small diavola pizza which was the perfect size for us given the many items we were ordering that evening. The pizza was stunning and authentic in taste with its mozzarella cheese and pepperoni slices; very similar in taste to the margherita pizza we tried in Brooklyn recently. At this point I ordered a glass of Zuffi pinot grigio which which perfectly complemented our food. We were getting full at this point but we pressed on with our pasta course of egg pappardelle porcini with pork sausage which was authentic but was a bit heavy because of the sausage. The parmesan cheese we added really heightened the taste of the dish but we decided to take some of it home since we had another couple courses remaining. Next came the lamb shank which was so favorful you could have torn the meat off of the bone with a spoon it was that tender. Plus the sauce that the lamb was in was magnificent as well as the accompanying mash potatoes. Embarrassingly to say, after all this we still wanted to try some dessert and ended up ordering the cassatina cheese cake with ice cream which was small and extremely light in portion but offered a beautiful end to a stunning dining experience. To add to our delight, our meal only cost us 2,400 baht which was a shock given the 6 course meal we had along with a cocktail and glass of wine. Finally, we were completely impressed with the service provided by our host Diego who was superb in his descriptions of the dishes and his guiding us through the menu. This place is mandatory for a visit if you crave authentic Italian cuisine in Bangkok. Bravissimo !!
