Delicious

Really cool place! The pizza was so delicious with thin crust and perfect amount of cheese and the selections of pizzas are some of the best I've seen on the island. Sweet staff, fast cook, nice atmosphere in the restaurant - almost like a homey livingroom. Will go there again!

The pizza was ok, though it was a bit tasteless until adding some of the spices and chilli's which are on the table. That brought it up a notch. The crust was quite good but it seems that the sauce really had no flavour. They could use with adding a few more toppings as well, it was hard to identify... More

Mateo puts in the love and the handmade work to give an overall delightful Italian cuisine experience. I'd say grab a beer and order the pizza.

Nothing special about this place. Food isn't bad. Price is a bit high. If you really do miss western food well...you can stop there but some other place would provide much better services.

Me and my boyfriend really fancied pizza so we had a look and this place was just around the corner from us and apparently better than all the rest? It was okay, nothing special. We sat outside as it was a cool evening and the family were sitting inside eating their dinner. We wished we sat inside! Mosquitos everywhere! We... More

We liked the pizza called kind od Arnold but it was harder to get it. We visited this place 3 times because we lived nearby. And all three evening (after 6 pm) it was closed.

I was getting tired of eating Thai food all the time so I went here for dinner. It wasn't the best pizza of my life but, I must say, it was surprisingly good! Thin crust, timely and kind service, and outdoor seating....I was pleased.

We did supposedly 3 top pizza places (acording to Tripadvisor) in 3 days while on Koh Phangan (Mandolino - Italians, Mr. Pizza - run by Thai people and Mateo - French owned) and when it comes down to pizza Mateo wins in my opinion! Their pizza is just well balanced (good dough and reasonable toppings) Excellent salad! It really felt... More

French owned/run restaurant serving impeccable, simple Italian cuisine, a must try! A small 30pax restaurant set atop the Haan Chao Phao beach, the lack of ocean view does not detract from the dining experience one bit. The quality and selection of food is second to none; cheeses, cured meats, fresh bread & wine cannot be faulted. The husband and wife... More
