La Costa by L’Italiano
This time we venture down Beach Road in Central Pattaya and visit La Costa by L’Italiano. Obviously as you can tell by the name is an Italian restaurant that offers meat, fish, vegetarian and pizza,
La Costa is also quite famous for offering sea specialities in fantastic guazzetto sauce. Their homemade pizzas are made to a traditional Italian recipe with a thin and crispy crust. The beef is imported mainly from Australia and the seafood is to die for.
The first thing you notice about this great eatery is the frontage with large double height front vestibule and windows. The dining space is airy and although fairly formal the waiting staff are friendly and informative.
La Costa shares space at the fabulous LK Empress just off Soi 12 Beach Road, and the location could not be better right in the very heart of buzzing Pattaya.
The bar area could be a New York glizzy cocktail bar with plenty of mirrors and brass, with a large array of drinks bottles. The comprehensive selection of 100 Italian and other wines are clearly marked with their price so the diner does not feel too uncomfortable asking the cost.
There is also an outdoor terrace facing the sea that diners can watch the world go by as they sip a glass of fine Italian wine or enjoy a delicious lunch.
Appetizers from the sea start at 310 Baht, with pasta dishes a very reasonable 150 Baht. Traditionally made Italian pizzas commence at 280 Baht and salads 200 Baht.
There are a vast range of main courses including both authentic Italian and Thai, with some tremendous desserts guaranteed to make you loosen your belt.
Some of the house specials include: Costolette Di Maiale, Linguine al Pesto, Frito Misto, Australian Beef Tagliata, Filetto di Manzo and Spaghetti di Mare.
La Costa by L’Italiano also offers a superb delivery service if for some reason you cannot come down to the restaurant. Both Door to Door and Food Panda will deliver your choice fresh and hot.
If you like to listen to music when dining then La Costa is the place for you, every night apart from Mondays guest artists appear at La Costa from half past six until eleven in the evening.
The ambiance is chilled and the music offers smooth tunes to enjoy your drink or meal. Perhaps you would just like a pre-dinner cocktail, take a seat on the terrace and enjoy the sea views whilst the music plays in the background, it does not get much better than this.
If you are looking for the best Italian cuisine at one of the very best locations in Pattaya then La Costa ticks all the boxes. Where else offers top food, sea-views, live music and great drinks?
