The menu is fairly thorough, with antipasti, salads, several pasta dishes, fish, meats, etc. We had an antipati plate with several sliced meats (prosciutto, sausages and pickeled veggies, but very little cheese) it was nice as a warmup to main dishes. I had a spaghetti...More

This simple, friendly restaurant serves marvelous Milanese cuisine (try the mushroom risotto -- yummy!). The kind owner was helpful in pointing us to the specialties cooked by his son. If you are in the neighborhood or simply ready for a change, try it!

I've been eating here for more than 10 years. I enjoy their pasta very much, especially their "Paradiso" with foie gras and truffle. La Buca cake has a lot of alcohol and is one of my favorite dessert.

With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls
lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll
rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While
the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of
entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys)
where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for
a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and
soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's
