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

After having a recommendation from our hotel we made our reservation here and could not have asked for anything else. The owners and staff were so welcoming and the atmosphere amazing.. The owner himself engaged in conversations about his time in Thailand and about us and what brought us there. The food was clean, tasty and portion size was perfect... More

From the lovely rustic decor to the home made dishes and the most charming owner couple, this is the best Italian restaurant I've ever been to. Giani and his wife, A, are very warm and welcoming guests into their small cozy restaurant. The dishes are guaranteed to be fresh and homemade. I just LOVE Giani's personal touch to making final...

To find a restaurant like this, serving authentic Italian food, in Phuket was unbelievable. We were greeted by Gianni (who is a character in himself) and seated in the back of the restaurant, adjacent to the kitchen, where it feels that you are walking into his home. The amazing show he put on when he opened our wine & served... More
