Al Dente is located in the Thonglor area, one of the trendiest Bangkok neighbourhood, within the Commons, a contemporary complex with artful outdoor spaces, artisanal products, eateries and a market. In a casual atmosphere, Al Dente brings fresh cooked pasta to the Thai consumers without a fuss.
Al Dente, and chef’s Lorenzo concept is to bring Italian flavors to Bangkok using healthy authentic ingredients. Al Dente, which literally means “cooked to the tooth”, offers something different; fresh, healthy and reasonably priced. With a dedicated pasta production corner and open kitchen counter, diners can sit kitchen side and watch the chefs churning out fresh pasta and prepare the pasta dishes.
Chilli spaghetti ‘Bollarga’ with Rock Lobster and dried Great Mullet roe. Tagliolini Al Granchio with fresh crab meat, cherry tomato and crab bisque sauce. Not to miss, the Tiramisu.
In a lively atmosphere and airy space, with polished concrete walls with bright hanging lamps, Al Dente’s seats 22 diners. All seats have a view of the massive, open kitchen and the chefs making the fresh pasta and preparing the dishes. For the best view of the open kitchen and the pasta making process patrons can sit on the counter, kitchen side.
Service is nice and attentive with well trained staff. The chefs interact with the diners to explain a dish or origin of ingredients.
While the fresh, homemade pasta is the main draw, the menu offers a variety of more traditional Italian dishes as well and excellent antipasti imported from Italy. As pasta is made fresh every half-hour, you can watch “your pasta dish” take shape from dough ball to dish.
Al Dente serves a surprising variety of classic Italian dishes with an artisan twist, such as the Tuna Tartare with Olive Tapenade, Goat Cheese and Truffle Vinaigrette, the “Panzanella” Bread Salad with Cucumber, Tomatoes and Basil, the Squid Carbonara with Organic Egg, Cheek Bacon, Parmesan and Black Pepper, and others. Al Dente offers an excellent selection of wines.
