The canals and gondolas echoed across the grounds of the Centara Grand Phratamnak as the Pattaya hotel celebrated Carnevale di Venizia.
The Venice-themed evening proved successful. Staff were adorned in Italian-style dresses and classic Venetian face masks while the Oceana restaurant offered roses on tables and face masks for each guest.
The elegant atmosphere was enhanced by classical favorites playing in the background, supplemented by a live performance from Italian tenor Yves Baron le Tenor, who performed classic and popular songs to kept the evening flowing.

But it was the dishes presented by Venetian Executive Chef Lucca Pulese that capped the evening. Pulese got a chance to show off some home cooking, offering up classic and specialty Italian including Venetian chicken soup with pigeon & cheese, Venetian-style marinated sardines, oysters, Mediterranean black mussels, Manila clams, Alaskan king crab, razor clams, baked Cod, and pork stew with apples, potatoes polenta and meat sauce. Appetizers and desserts included salads to deep fried seafood, foie gras, an assortment of cheeses, and a Thai petit fours chocolate fountain.
