Super friendly owner and superb food at reasonable price. Pasta comes in huge portion, and I mean huge! A must try when you feel like friendly Italian meal in Chiangmai. Prepare stretchy trousers.

Had read good reviews of the place and decided to take this one on. Our hotel helped us get reservations and also informed us that the restaurant picks up guests dining at the restaurant. Unfortunately our ride broke down at our hotel but soon another ride was arranged and to our surprise it was none other than the chef/owner himself... More

I am italian and I love and appreciate good food and especially the passion and the quality behind it. This restaurant not only serves very good italian food but the owner is very careful of where the food comes from (in a land where there is no safety and control behind what you put on your plate). I make you... More

Just a show, an "has been"... Sorry but that's the truth. Don't see why we should post good comments about such a rip off. Stay away!

Mr. Angelo,a guy who is cute,funny and full of passion about his dishes. The food is AMAZING! I had Linguine with smoke Salmon. The cream sauce is so good that I almost lick the plate. The portion is 3 times bigger than normal and can't believe I finished it all. If you like Italian food,don't miss it!

The food is tasty and comes in HUGE portions on HUGE plates! The Spaghetti Carbonara is amazing - my favourite dish at this restaurant, although I've been several times and tried many things on the menu, I can't stay away from the Carbonara (made traditionally styled without cream). I've taken my parents to this restaurant many times and they loved... More

We decided to try Piccola Roma in our last night in Chiang Mai and it was amazing! The ambience was nice and warm. Traditional Italian dishes done with a real good chef! We had a great night and would love to come back again soon.

I'm back again at this restaurant, only because listening to my friend insistence. The thing I regret is that my first time at this restaurant, it was a nice experience, but now after a few years I confirm that this restaurant is in a fast decline. I read some reviews, and I do not understand who is telling all those... More

No.1 For my business, this is not decline but very very good. My restaurant is almost full everyday. In Chiang Mai, there are more than 1,300 restaurants and why did you come to Piccola Roma, I didn't ask you to come. When you're in my restaurant and have problem, why didn't come to talk with me directly? It's impossible for... More

We reserved a table for very early evening to accommodate our hunger and our 3 year old son. As you might expect we had the place to ourselves. The owner, who is a true Roman gentleman, waited on us himself. The menu is extensive, and fresh seafood and fish is available. Our food was perfection and the service top notch.... More
