Cantina Italian Kitchen

Italian - $$$


Despite being a buzzing foodie area, Ari hasn’t had a decent Italian place until now. From Soho Hospitality (the group behind Above Eleven, Charcoal and Havana Social) comes this casual pizza and pasta house.

The restaurant stands in a quaint house on the corner of Ari Samphan Soi 3. Referencing the name Cantina—Italian for wine cellar—the decor employs a whole lot of wood and bricks to create a cozy, dimly-lit dining room. A huge wine rack straddling two stories features hundreds of bottles, while upstairs offers more seats and a pizza-making kiosk. 
 
There's nothing fancy here in terms of food. It's all about Italian comfort dishes—antipasti, pasta, pizza, cold cuts and, of course, tiramisu (B180). The quality of ingredients shines in dishes like the simple smoked burrata salad (B440), which comprises refreshing buffalo cheese and delicious heirloom tomatoes. They also make pizza the Neapolitan way, raising the pizza dough for 24 hours. Don’t miss their mascarpone e tartufo pizza (B520), which features mascarpone cheese, mozzarella cheese, truffle paste, rocket leaves and San Daniele ham.
 
This spot is definitely a must-try for wine-lovers. A three-page menu with names from Chile, New Zealand, France, Australia and Italy leads things, but you’ll also find some esoteric bottles which the restaurant imports exclusively. One of the owners, Matthew Milotich, acts as the restaurant’s sommelier and personally imports the Slovenian Edi Simcic Giocato Merlot 2012, which comes in at a tidy B170 by the glass (B950/bottle). Also try Argentina’s Aberdeen Angus Mendoza Centenario Malbec 2014 (B180/glass, B1,100/bottle).
 
This isn’t just some place to tag heuer replica  provide decent Italian for Ari residents. Cantina’s flavors are full-on and worth traveling for. Add to that a wine list that’s one of the most approachable in town and you breitling replica have an easy-to-recommend package.
