La Gaetana is a great choice to experience authentic Italian cuisine in the heart of Phuket town. Once you step in the restaurant, the owner Gianni will give you a personalized attention and make you feel like home. The ambience is quiet, romantic and very cozy. The ingredients used are top quality so you can expect culinary finesse. Dont miss... More

La Gaetana is a lovely family-run restaurant in Phuket's old town. The owner, Gianni lovingly runs the floor and will go above and beyond expectations to ensure guests have a good time. Do not miss their scamorza (smoked mozzarella) or their beef tagliata.

Dined here on the last night of our stay in Phuket and as always, it was our best meal there. The owner and his wife are always welcoming and extremely helpful. You can tell they love what they do and that makes each meal here even more enjoyable. One of their specials of the evening was pasta with black truffles.... More

Went there for a Sunday night dinner. Not the easiest place to find but once you find it, you will love it. Very few tables at this restaurant.

I thought the food and the service were excellent. I would come back again for sure! The homemade pasta were exceptional. The smoked buffalo cheese salad was also very good.
