#1 iO Italian Osteria-Bangkok

Postby Trongpai » Thu Aug 16, 2018 7:28 pm

Here is my favorite real Italian restaurant in Bangkok. It's in a section of Central World called the Groove. It's accessible from BTS Siam, follow the signs to the sky walk to Central World and there's a separate entrance right into the Groove Complex. IO Osteria is on the ground floor. My favorite is Porchetta Baked Pork Belly with Wild Fennel- 1:03 on the video. There's generally around 4 to 6 "Chief Specials" and they rotate weekly. Service impeccable and ambiance Italian.

The Grove is two open floors of trendy craft bars, restaurants and cafes. It's very popular. Sometimes there's a band or singer on stage on the ground floor.

I see on their web page that a branch of IO Osteria is coming to Pattaya in 2018. I'm not sure where. Perhaps Terminal 21?

Last evening, August 22, Trongpai and I ate here. I loved it. Other than a wide variety of pizza choices, I have never seen food like this in any Italian restaurant. The food and service are both beyond superb.

They will be opening in Pattaya on October 29, in the new Terminal 21. Expect to see me there - often.

If the Pattaya location becomes anything like Bangkok, then I definitely suggest making a booking if you wish to be sure of getting a table. There were a few tables vacant when Tronpai and I arrived. By the time we left, all the tables were full.

Telephone number for both Bangkok and Pattaya locations: 02 117 3826

My partner and I are having a few days holiday in Jomtien in November, if you visit their new opening in Terminal 21 I would be interested to read your comments.

Osteria is now open in Pattaya. Yesterday, there has been Grand opening of Terminal 21. I am not in Pattaya at the moment but my bf went over there and sent me some pictures. Looks impressive. New SF movie theater in Terminal 21. He did not try any food in Osteria but hopefully quality is similar to BKK.
