Napoli, Bangkok

Sukhumvit Soi 22, Bangkok

Okay, it may not be quite the thing to go Italian in Bangkok but if you've got to, then this place is definitely worth a try.

A cosy little place tucked away amid the madness of Sukhumvit where the food is good and the service friendly.

Order The Venetian pizza where the chef turns a simple pizza into a whimsical rendition of a bridge in Venice – parma ham is draped over two breadsticks. The crust is thin, the pizza crunchy, just the way I like it.
The spaghetti vongole comes in a claypot with a doughtop. I like the way it comes to your table and when the girl peels off the top, the aroma just strikes you – actually, more than an aroma because it is laced with garlic.

This is a drier version than most spaghetti vongole I have tried but it's heavenly.

To top off a great meal, the owner offered us free Grappa. Hey, what more could anyone ask for? - SHY
