True Italian!

If you're craving good Italian food, come here! The pizza and the pasta that I had was incredible. You rarely find perfect pizza crust here in Vietnam, but this place delivered!

During our stay in Nha Trang we tried a few so called "Italian" restaurants but the most authentic is Da Fernando, the owner oversees a very busy little place serving delicious pasta, pizza and an array of Classic Italian dishes. The wine list is also comprehensive my favorite being the Pinot Grigio. Do yourselves a favor and visit Fernando and... More

We absolutely loved the food here! It was the most authentic homemade Italian we've tasted in Asia. The Italian owner was there to greet us and even gave us complimentary profiteroles! I had blue cheese gnocchi and it was creamy and so so tasty and the pizzas/ravioli my friends ordered were just as good! Don't doubt the sign, best Italian... More

Visited this restaurant in Nha Trang a few days ago and was thoroughly impressed. It is easily the nicest ravioli I have ever tasted and the owner made every effort to get to know and make us feel comfortable. Would 100% visit again!

We went here because of the strength of the reviews on TA. We both ordered pizza and one of them was quite burnt. The Italian owner came to see if everything was ok and offered to change it but the other pizza that wasn't burnt was only ok so we didn't bother. He was very apologetic and gave us a... More

My partner had a pizza and that was also very good with its light and crispy base. We enjoyed our meals here and found the service... More

Came across this restaurant by accident as we were looking for somewhere else but so glad we went in. Made to feel very welcome by the owner and all his staff were helpful. 4 beers, 2 starters, 2 main and 2 desserts for just over 500'000 dong and it was all excellent. It's well worth finding ! 👍

Very nice little restaurant nestled in between several other eating establishments. One never knows what to expect when biting into a pizza in Vietnam, but this place lived up to its billing on the sign outside. It truly was the best pizza that I've tried in Nha Trang. They did have a pretty extensive Italian menu, so I'll have to... More
