I came with a small group and we had high expectations as the restaurant came highly recommended by Tripadvisor. Perhaps that was the cause of our disappointment, in addition to the meal being way overpriced. As there were a group of us, we were able to try several different dishes, and felt the cuisine just didn't meet our expectations. The... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this dining experience. An amazing host and a great environment. The team provided exceptional service. The food was generally amazing. We especially enjoyed the scallops. The only let down was that the pasta was hard for my liking and I am not sure whether it was freshly made or not, but it didn't seem to be.This was... More

Went here for a big family dinner as it had really good reviews here on TripAdvisor, only to leave feeling a little ripped of. Although it's a very cosy little restaurant and the service was good, the food was average for the price you pay, it just didn't feel like it was worth going there. An Italian restaurant that doesn't... More

Looking for a good place to eat in Phuket is a challenge. And for 8 years and many restaurants I'm often extremely disappointed. But not this time. The service and atmosphere is professional and each course was as exciting as the one before. The food - its the best Italian in Phuket. There's no doubt about that. So many Italian... More

Wow! What an intimate personal experience! Menu was adaptable based on what you are craving... The owner and his wife have been running this place for years and it is so well done! Make a reservation as it is small! Sadly they are not open on Wednesdays which we found out as we were ready to come back the following... More

Having read the negative reviews for this place, I can quite honestly say that said people have taken something personal against the owner and his unique style of ownership. The owner is most welcoming, and couldn't be more helpful if he tried. Personally, I found this to make the whole experience much better. He adds finesse to the dishes before... More

We were there mid May 2014 and we had a wonderful dining experience. See whether you are lucky enough to have their home made lemoncello - perfect in every sense. Ask who Gaetana is, and you will be honoured with a story from the owner. The husband and wife team obviously did a good job to have maintained such a... More

That establishment unfailingly delivers a rapture rather unexpected and to be remembered for a long time. The rustic decor only enhances the sublime tastes of these extraordinary dishes coming out of its kitchen. All are delightfully blurred by the intricate intimacy of the two continents' distant yet imposing sentiments, in their very ravishing presence of smells, tastes, lights and walls,... More

Having spent a few days in Phuket Town, I decided it was time for a change, and try something else then thai and asian food. I went online to see if there were any Italian restaurants near by, and i found La Gaetana, it had good ratings on tripadvisor, and it was pretty near to my hotel. I went there... More
