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

After nearly 3 month of travelling in Asia finally we (my girlfriend and I) find a food that remembered us the place where we come from ITALY. This restaurant is the best place in Phuket where you can eat a really genuine Italian food. What we have loved of this place was the really attention to all the details that... More

This place is absolutely amazing! Have been there with two of my friends a week ago. Food was in my top best i have ever tried. Duck carpaccio, lamb rack and lentil soup are very recommended! Although there are occasional mistakes in the service (the way they serve, the side, presentation, etc.), the ambience of the place ad friendliness of... More

Perhaps it's cliche to say I never expected to experience such Italian culinary delights in Phuket - but I will. Amongst other things, an unassuming pasta with truffles was like ambrosia from the gods! Gianni is the consummate host, such a personal touch, in his intimate and inviting domain. I would recommend to anyone unreservedly! (but do reserve a table)
