    Mozza Italian

    ...located on the ground floor of Emquartier...We started with foie gras bruschetta (served chilled) and mozzarella ball caprese with pesto drippings: my first experience with cold foie gras: not bad with dried blueberries for sweetness. The caprese was...well...caprese (though the mozzarella balls were nice). We continued with my all-time favorite pasta: linguine con vongole and an arugula/mushroom/sausage pizza. The former needed a bit more garlic-flavored olive oil and additional chopped parsley to increase flavor; the latter can be found at any of a number of Italian pizzerias in bkk (tasty, but a tad dry). The desserts stood out: a sort of lemon meringue tart (in which grated lemon peel made all the difference) and a chocolate gelato (good, but I've had better locally). With 3 glasses of a drinkable Montepulciano and water: B4,200.

    Oddly for an Italian restaurant in bkk, the head waiter, two of the waitstaff, and the chef were French (on loan from Cocotte, I assume). Also, everything, starters and mains, came to the table at the same time: I think the foreigners have definitely adjusted to their clientele's preferences. The totally non-threatening chili oil looked like a packet of Kool-Aid had been mixed in. A good crowd of hungry diners...I doubt we'll come again as we can enjoy much the same fare at more convenient Peppino's (Central Embassy).

    The pizza looks delicious..

    What was the dessert? They both look tasty. The pasta portions are quite small.

    The vongole dish looks bland in the photo and the linguine looks too round...more like spaghetti.
