Dining at La Gaetana is always a treat!

My husband and I have been regular customers for a number of years now and we have never been disappointed, but it seems to me that the quality of the food is even better than it ever was before.

The food is amazing. Many friends have a good relation to the owner and it was really shocking for me to be greeted by an apparently very arrogant man (the owner). Despite greeting him with a warm "buonasera" when I entered the place he was somehow so disturbed by me that he completely ignored my friend (one of his best... More

The restaurant is located in the middle of old phuket town. It's walking distance from Robinson department store. The owner has a warm hospitality with every guest. Food there is nice although it can be costly for some meals. Pasta and desserts are something I enjoyed the most during the dinner. The atmosphere is good for couple or small group... More

Taking a friend to a restaurant one has thoroughly enjoyed previously is always risky! We shouldn't have worried! Our friend announced it was one of the "very best restaurants in the world" ... if not "the best"! Phew ... what a relief! But he is absolutely correct ... La Gaetana is an culinary delight but it is more than that... More

Google map has the wrong indication which led us to a 150m further down the road. Fortunately the staff gave us correct indication and thanks to the Chinese temple on the opposite side of the street which is an obvious landmark and a safe place to park. The Italian owner has kept the original style of the house which made... More

Went to the restaunrant based on the review from Trip advisor. We made a booking at the host was there personally to greet us. The set upp was somewhat authentic, and with only 5 - 6 tables, it was quite an experience. A travel of 30 minutes from Patong beach is required, and probably a taxi pre booked for the... More

I used to live in Phuket and always make an effort to eat here after a number of expats recommended the place. Not that cheap, service is excellent and the food is always great.The owner makes it a cozy family like experience and can recommend what is best that day. Really? Italian food is not just pizza and spaghetti, that... More

After reading good reviews on trip advisor we had high expectations, big mistake. Italian restaurant that doesn't offer pizza, 4 times the price of local cuisine with a quarter of the culinary skill. Garlic bread that resembles what we used to make as students after a night out and pasta that clearly isn't fresh and portion so small your left... More

This restaurant is not inexpensive but great value when you consider the superb food, fine wines, attentive service and warm ambience. Don't miss this very special dining experience so treat yourself while you are in Phuket. Gianni and his family work closely with his staff who are clearly very well trained. Make sure you include pasta in your choice from... More
