A cook for twenty-five years in Europe and the Middle East, he opened La Buca in 2002 and has slowly built a client base of people who come back because they need his pasta, his damn good pasta.
The food is classic northern Italian and very well executed, and delivered to the dining room by a dumbwaiter that wouldn't have been out of place 40 years ago.
Oreste will probably tell you all of this himself — he spends a lot of time in the dining room, and is always ready to make a recommendation, or whip something special up out of what he has in the kitchen.
With only ten tables, it's an intimate slice of Italy that's worth the walk down Soi 1. Starters from 150 baht, mains from 225 baht.
