WHY GO? Red Sauce is a charming new entry in the Patong area. Set in the upscale Rosewood Phuket, guests walk to the large dining areas through an open kitchen with delicatessen zones. Beautiful views of Patong bay below.
WHAT TO ORDER? The Red Sauce dining room is elegant but the menu is more in keeping with an Italian trattoria in which the cuisine and service are relaxed. A Sardinian-inspired fish soup is full of meaty sea bass, clams, mussels, tiger prawns and fregola pasta in a light white wine sauce with hints of garlic and chilli. Burrata is enhanced with taggiasca olives and heirloom tomatoes with a genovese pesto. All geared to suit a modest budget, diners have a great choice of pizzas and pastas. A further highlight is the Italian Job burger with black angus beef, toma cheese and peperonata relish. Main course delights range from braised veal shank osso buco to a sumptuous chicken cacciatora with taggiasca olives steeped in a rich tomato-based sauce. The stunning branzino salt-encrusted sea bass and la fiorentina T-bone steak are feasts to share.
Drinks A good wine selection plus a distinctive choice of aperitivi to put diners in the Italian mood. Recommended are a limoncello high ball or an Americano sbagliato with Mancino Vermouth rosso and Campari bitters. There’s also grappa to finish.
