A Lake Como-inspired Italian restaurant on the west bank of Chao Phraya River
Of the three dining rooms at the five-star Four Seasons Bangkok, it’s Italian restaurant Riva Del Fiume that takes up prime space, set by the Chao Phraya River riverfront. The restaurant is airy and sunlit, but still undoubtedly elegant. AvroKo, the same studio behind the head-turning interiors of Lennon’s, Nan Bei and BKK Social Club, took inspiration from Lake Como and installed touches that evoke the famous Italian destination’s breezy, stylishly chic vibe—rattan chairs and light-colored wood add warmth to a room dominated by marbled surfaces and globe lamps.
Spearheading the kitchen is executive chef Andrea Accordi, whose years of experience, including a stint at Four Seasons Hong Kong, has equipped him with the culinary polish to create exquisite pan-Italian cuisine.
We heartily recommend Risotto in Riva al Mare (B,1800), a tasty dish with a smooth, rich sauce and a generous serving of freshly shucked seafood. Controfiletto (B2,300/150g), a MS 9+ striploin, also deserves a thumbs up. This award-winning, chocolate-fed Australian Wagyu from Mayura Station is so sweet and tender that you’ll want more after every bite.
The food line-up also includes Vitello Tonnato (B590), a slow-cooked veal tenderloin drenched in creamy tuna-anchovy sauce, and Spaghetti Mancini (B450), a dish that blows our palate away with a sprinkling of spicy dried cruschi peppers.
Other offerings, like a hand-kneaded focaccia with pancetta and pesto sauce (B380), a toothsome tiramisu (B350) and strawberry granitas (B360) are likewise ample reasons to book a table and indulge your craving for delicious Italian specialties.
