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

I spent several evening there with my wife and my two children. We all enjoy their pizzas, along with this charming owner couple. Many people come here for the great taste of the pizzas but most of them only like a pastis or another apéros... Very friendly, very good

This was the best pizza I have had in Thailand. It is thin crust, probably 12" or more in diameter, easy to eat by yourself but definitely a satisfying portion. The crust was really good, slight charring all over, but still soft. Perfectly cooked in my book. I had the Jeff, which had pineapple, mushroom, olive and ham on it.... More

Pizza is always a tricky meal to review as each individuals preference makes a difference. So I am reviewing based on what I look for on a pizza....thin and crispy crust (not soggy), generous amount of topping and not overly cheesy, tasty and consistency of product on each visit Mateo pizza's ticks all of these each and every time. We... More

I had the opportunity to eat at Mateo Pizza when they oppened 2 years ago, and to be honnest it's so nice to have a traditional tasty pizza after eating Thai for weeks. The owners are more than welcoming, and the place is next to the sea!

I'm always suspicious of pizza in Thailand, the result of numerous painful experiences I'd rather not go into. But ther is only so much Pad Thai one can take. Mateo Pizza was right next to my bungalow, so I decided to take a chance. Lovely, thin crust, plentiful toppings, tasty sauce, cooked perfectly. Definitely worth a trip even if it... More

I thought I could happily go a month eating Thai food, however we stopped in at Mateo Pizza one night. The French style pizza's were so delicious that we went back again a few nights later. The menu has a great range of options and the service was friendly. The restaurant is a casual no-nonsense place which isn't in the... More
