Italy in Thailand. After a career in the kitchens of many restaurants around the world, Phuket has become Alessandro Frau's, chef and owner, final destination, and chosen city for opening his restaurant in 2009. Modern, with a vibrant and classy atmosphere, Acqua is the right place where authentic Italian flavors are served. Traditional recipes meet the flair of the chef -and his Sardinian roots- and are perfectly executed. A must to try is the Malloreddus pasta with Sardinian-style piglet ragout, Vernaccia wine, fresh tomatoes, and aged Pecorino Sardo or the Grilled tuna fillet served with eggplants and zucchini, fresh cherry tomatoes, capers, and oregano sauce. But a true surprise is the wine list: wide and rich, with labels ranging from all over the world. Italy is well represented with each region with some very well-selected wines. Tuscany and Piedmont truly shine with important vintages and labels from worldwide known wineries.
