We ordered the bocchini entrée and it was simple and delicious - great start to the night. Staff were as helpful as possible with our choices although English was a little lacking, but very professional and attentive. Prices are a little cheaper/ match aussie prices for Italian but worth it for a spoil in Thailand. Large mains - some of... More

The decor of this restaurant is interesting and quite unusual or unique. The food is good too with large portions.

The restaurant is not cheap, (in terms of Thailand) but certainly special, delicious and a has a very varied menu! Large pizza (in our case- with eggplant & spinach) costs about 350 baht and a Ministrone soup 250 baht. The restaurant has a stunning beauty and her design is definitely not something you see every day. The owner is a... More

Went here for my wifes 50th birthday. We had been on several occasions previously and I was glad I booked a table as it was very busy on the evening. I am not the greatest lover of pasta but my dish was superb - black pasta stuffed with lobster in a prawn sauce. Our guests all enjoyed the food and... More

Excellent value, authentic Italian food! Owner comes over and greets all his guests, you truly feel welcomed. The portion sizes are HUGE! One Pizza is HUGE and more than enough for two people. The House red wine is delicious but the absolute best thing on the menu is... The profiteroles! They are to die for, seriously the best profiteroles we've... More

I visited in December of 2013 and I have to say this was the best italian food I have ever eaten (but have not yet been to Italy.) We were starving after arriving in Koh Samui and we went walking to find somewhere to eat and stumbled across this gem. Don't be put off by the darkness of the restaurant... More

First off the staff and the owner were soo welcoming and lovely. The bread and olive oil appetiser tasted very fresh, and wine was good if a little expensive. The mains: I had gnocchi alla pescatora, gnocchi and sauce were very tasty but the seafood, particularly the squid was overcooked and chewy. My partners lasagne was nice but the tomato... More
