“The best Italian: perfetto!”

Amadeus Restaurant & Tapas
Ranked #370 of 1,050 Restaurants in Pattaya
Restaurant details
Reviewed 28 November 2016

Escaped from Bangkok for the weekend to Jomtien. The highlight of our stay was a splendid meal in Amadeus, where Gig and Alberto made us feel we were back in Italy with the quality of the food and the rich, deep Montepulciano d'Abruzzo that went with it!

We were two couples so were able to indulge in a selection of 6 or 7 starters that included a heart of parma ham, a delicate smoked pork, an exquisite octopus salad and a glorious timino(?) young goat's cheese: each to be savoured for its contrasting taste. In addition we had one of Aberto's creative combinations: fresh tuna and mango!

A pause to swill around, smell, sip and comment on the colour of our wine between courses, and then the most subtle 24 hour marinaded and slow-cooked lamb shanks, for two of us and an equally tender duck as well as a rib-eye steak that was declared to be the best my partner had tasted in Thailand.

Unfortunately, we did not leave enough room for the desserts, but did have 3 more small but delicious Italian cheeses to accompany the last of our wine.

Alberto is on hand to provide the background to the dishes and entertain with Italian and other anecdotes! To my surprise, given the quality of our meal, he also said that Amadeus catered for more everyday dishes and that you could have a piazza and a glass of house wine for under 500 baht,

Maybe, this review sounds a bit over the top, but we have been to many, many Italian restaurants in Bangkok and Amadeus has the best combination of personal service, quality food and excellent wines, in our view.

Walked in not knowing what to expect, was greeted at the door by the owner Alberto who personally seated us and went through tha food concept of the Restaurant with us as well as the daily specials. He then brought us into a delightful little bar with a full glass wine cellar.
Ordered a bottle of Amarone from a visit to this cellar. The preperstion of our food order was overlooked by Alberto and was prepared and cooked to perfection. Alberto introduced our pallets to an amazing (private from his collection) 40 year Balsamic Vinegar.
Ontop of all this personalised service the staff there were very professional and attentive.
Thanks Alberto. Will be back again

My friend and I enjoyed our dinner there. While the food was not great, it was certainly good and enjoyable.

The atmosphere is quite nice, but the Italian owner tends to be rather boisterous and we sometimes had trouble with our conversation.

What do I look when going to a restaurant? Location, either special or convenient, Food, Atmosphere, Service and last but not least the Price. Considering this I rate this restaurant as good and will be back.
