This is one of the best place to eat italian food. Renata is an excellent italian chef from Romagna. Her specialities: Tortellini, passatelli, parmigiana and the special bread from the middle italy that is named 'piadina'

Really lovely food cooked by Renata. I've been here a lot and even spent NYE here and the food is always good and service friendly. Recommend the seafood antipasti, the gnocchi, the mixed grill is amazing as is all the homemade pasta. The only let down was the risotto but the rest was fab. Good value and lots of it.

Da Renata is a lot more in Nai Harn than in Rawai. It is 5 minutes walk from the beach. I became obsessed with the seafood risotto and therefore had it 3 times in 10 days. This restaurant looks really basic but it is awesome- minimal atmosphere but great nonna food. Highly recommend the risotto and the lasagne. The lasagne... More

We have just come from having dinner at Da Renata. Honestly, the external appearance of the restaurant is not appealing, but we wanted a change from Thai food. The main reason we chose it is because it was not far from our hotel in Nai Harn and because of the number of Italians there. Food is homemade by an authentic... More

This place is located close to jai harn lake and serves mainly home made pasta which is delicious but not cheap. The bruschetta is average and highly priced. They have no beef carpaccio and no pizza on the menue which I find quite strange for an Italian restaurant, so its more a noodle place. The wine list is very short.

Nice homely restaurant, good paste, service with a smile. I never managed to go there until today because of the opening times: they are open daily from noon till 3 PM and from 7 PM till 10.30 while I rather have dinner between 5 and 7 PM. Located very close to Nai Harn beach (last restaurant coming from Rawai before... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the best person possible. An Italian. Not large but then, again, not too small. Specials every day. My wife had the Melezana Parmiggiana (eg plant/brinjals with a delicious cheesy, tomato sauce. Right up there if compared to similar dishes we have had in Italia. Oh, all pasta is homemade. This gives it an... More

Great little restaurant. Renata herself comes to the table to make sure you are happy with your food and makes suggestions on what is good. Food is lovely and the staff are friendly. I keep going back ....
