FOR THAILAND NEW YEAR IN APRILTHE RESTAURANT WILL BE OPEN EVERY DAY LUNCH AND DINNER
La Buca Italian Restaurant
The restaurant’s owner is Mr. Oreste Casorati. After he finished studying at the State Hotel School in Milan, in 1967 he began to work in the best hotels of the city, but because of his peasant origin he chose to work in family restaurants (‘Trattoria’) where the homely cooking and the family ambience suited to his origin. But at that time Mr. Oreste aimed at gaining experience also abroad so that in 1975 he decided it was time to try working abroad and for 7 years he worked in the Arab Countries (Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Algeria and Turkey) getting a great experience.
In 1983 he went to the always-loved Thailand, and he settled in Chiang Mai where he opened a musical instruments shop and in the evenings he used to sing in the coffee shops by fulfilling also his passion for music.
Back to Europe in the following years he worked in several restaurants in Spain, Paris, Austria, Yugoslavia and Italy.
In 2000 when his mother died, he decided to move forever to Thailand to fulfill his dream to have his own restaurant. Now it has been 9 years since he opened the Restaurant “La Buca” in Sukhumvit Soi 1. He started quietly without any particular acquaintance or contact, and with just his passion and determination combined with the good food and the family ambience he succeeded in getting his own space. The dream came true!
In 2010 La Buca Italian Restaurant receiving from Thailand Tatler Magazine the Award for the Best Restaurant for is exceptional cuisine and service.
