When the culinary powerhouse The Water Library makes pizza, you know it’s going to be good
Say “Ciao” to Ciao, the Water Library Group’s brand-new venture that purveys thin and crispy Italian indulgence. Tucked in the bustling neighborhood of Silom, right next to Kuku Ramen (a Japanese noodle parlor also by the same group), this industrial-chic space is kitted out with dark wooden tables, curved steel interiors and trendy faux brick walls, and is usually packed with Silom office workers looking to feast on good-quality Italian delicacies with wallet-friendly prices.
Italian chef Gerardo Calabrese steers the kitchen and churns out delicate thin-crust pizzas from a handsome hybrid gas/wood-fired oven. The pizza here comes in two sizes – small and regular – and is generously topped with an exciting selection of toppings. The combo of parma ham, rocket, parmesan, tomato and burrata cheese (B555/regular) is an interesting mash-up of contrasting flavors, while the vegetarian option, heaped with mozzarella, aubergine, cherry tomatoes and mushrooms, is simply refreshing. Their pizza dough is what possibly sets Ciao apart. Here, it is left to rise twice after kneading, so expect a crust with a light and airy texture.
Aside from pizza, other pick-me-ups include fresh strozapretti pasta cooked with house-made pesto (B260) and ravioli stuffed with smoked cheese and ricotta then laden with creamy truffle sauce (B260). The signature panna cotta, sprinkled with strawberry granita and fizzy Pop Rock candies, makes for a fun ending to your meal.
Something worth noting: until the end of November, Ciao is running a buy-one-get-one-free promotion on all booze offerings, excluding wine.
