Vibe: Giorgio’s at the Royal Orchid Sheraton Bangkok holds the distinct honor of being one of Bangkok's original and most beloved Italian restaurants. This award winning venue offers an exciting and fresh menu with many familiar flavors presented in new and innovative ways. Every dish is well seasoned, cohesive and thoughtful. You will discover a modern and contemporary ambiance, an extensive wine list, romantic river views, excellent service and refined cuisine. Giorgio’s gives you everything that you would expect and more.

What to Eat & Drink: Everything on the menu is spectacular, but they have one of the best versions of risotto you will find, hands down. The risotto is legendary, and the secret is the imported Italian salami Chef Gaetano uses, that literally dissolves into the rice. We recommend the Risotto w/ Prawn & Nduja Spicy Salami. The rice is perfectly al dente, with the right consistency and a complex depth of flavor that is intensified by the sweet and generous portions of succulent prawns. It is amazing when paired with a red wine like the Robert Mondovi Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 from California. Another favorite is the Stewed Beef Cheek w/ Wine, Potatoes, Sun Dried Tomatoes & Green Peas Puree and the Seafood & Rock Lobster Soup w/ Garlic Bread. Words can hardly describe how satisfy and soulful this soup is and you can taste the skill, time and effort in every spoonful. For something lighter try the Black Cod w/ Sun Dried Tomatoes, Asparagus, & Capers. It's straightforward and simple and can only be described as perfection on a plate. Next try a cold glass of Two Oceans Chardonnay, 2012 from South Africa, as it is well matched with the decadent Handmade Pansotti Filled w/ Roasted Veal & Truffle. One of the most compelling creations on the menu is the unforgettable Green Asparagus w/ Parmesan Cake & Parmesan Foam. It has an intense cheese flavor and an unexpected texture that will leave you feeling as if you have indulged in something deliciously unique.

Insider Insights: It’s not often that you find a place where absolutely everything that touches your lips is delicious, but this is the case at Giorgio’s. The secret to their success is Chef Gaetano Palumbo and he delivers some of the most clever and innovative Italian fare available in Bangkok. This is one of the premier venues for riverfront dining in the city. We also like how The Sheraton offers a "Wine Tasting" which allows you to taste 3 whites or 3 reds for just 450Baht ++ , so you can sample the wines before you buy the bottle. Giorgio's is moderately priced, but expect to spend anywhere form 300 to 800baht per course. If you enjoy adventurous and imaginative cuisine that is full of bright, fresh, clean flavors, then you will love Giorgio’s.
