Chef Vittorio’s role includes oversight of the multi-award winning Rang Mahal Indian restaurant, Bangkok’s finest, which also provides patrons with stunning panoramic views across the city, and the Mexicano, Thailand’s leading authentic Mexican restaurant as well as popular eateries including the poolside eatery, Da Vinci.
