    Pala (again)

    ...always up for their new menu items...SD tried the linguine with imported Italian mussels and chorizo while I had the orecchiette with broccoli and sausage in a light butter sauce: both very satisfying...B900 with tomato bruschetta and water (no alcohol day)...

    ...dropped in again for a nice Italian lunch: tomato bruschetta (shared), 2 slices of pizza marinara, saltimboca and roast sea bass...efficiently served and delicious with 3 glasses of Montepulciano red and a ginger ale: B1,800...we're here about once a month...

    In the Bill of B1,800 ... how much was the wine?

    ...Pala makes no attempt at alta cucina: it serves a relatively simple and well-prepared variety of Italian dishes with a modest selection of wines at prices that suit us...that's why we return so often...you can do a lot worse in bkk (as far as Italian restaurants are concerned), but would be hard-pressed to do much better for the price...

    I have a problem with low value restaurants, it could have been 50 THB for the whole meal, I would still feel the same

    Do you like to be ripped off ? and believe me I have been ripped off in plenty of those restaurants

    so it was a liquid lunch ? why not skip to the wine directly instead of showing off the tapas
