"THE" Best Pizza in town

If you've a hankering for Pizza then look no further. Cooked to perfection by an Italian Chef that is a dead ringer of Luigi from Super Mario (including the hat). His Pizza base is thin and crispy like it's meant to be and the toppings are as fresh as they are varied. Definitely try it out.

I've been coming to this restaurant for a few years and have never been disappointed. Modena recently moved a little further along the road and for a moment I thought it had closed down. Finding Franco with his pizza oven still in business was as always a highlight of the holiday.

Had the "Bologna Pizza" and a couple of beers at Modena's last night. Perfect! Franco uses a hot brick oven and he's a master at making great pizza. This place is a little off the beaten path if you're in Rawai or Nai Harn, but it's worth the drive. If you haven't been there in a while, it has moved... More

What has always had the potential of being one of the best Pizzarias in Rawai Nai Harn has sadly taken a turn for the worst. The eccentric owner was always hit or miss but mostly on the hit side. What was one of the best Pizza bases in Rawai toppings always left a lot to be desired whether there was... More

Authentic Itallian wood fired pizza. Great service and made by same chef and owner every time. Takes a little time but worth the wait!

Stopped in as it's near where I'm staying. It's big restaurant with lots of seating (good for large parties) there seemed to be some communication issues between the 1 waitress and the cook. I ordered the roasted eggplant and she came back asking if I was going to order pizza after. I said the eggplant was my meal and she... More

I tried this place now 5 times and you never know what quality of food you get even you order nearly every time the same type of pizza. May be they have different cooks working, but it's frustrating if you never know before what you get. Now the moved to a different location, so I corrected the wrong location, but... More

I have no idea why people like this restaurant, the pizzas are boring, usually dry around the edges and sparse on toppings. I tried them again hoping for something different but still same same. to for me, they had their chance. There are many better Italian places in Rawai.
