“Good alternative to Thai cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

My Truly Beloved was getting a bit pissed off with my search for the perfect fish and wanted a break from spicy Thai so we went to this place on the recommendation of friends who live here.
Good starters and the pasta, pork and lemon and the lamb shanks were very good. Wine in always expensive but the house carafes were pretty good.
Service very good but it was not busy so can't comment on this properly.

“Super!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Excellent Italian restaurant with service to match Pizzas are highly recommended and are genuinely thin and crispy from a proper pizza oven.Very affordable and good house wine also sold by the carafe.Situated in Bang Rak between Choeng Mon and Bophut.Reservations would be a good idea at the weekend.

“A really nice italian place on Samui”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

If you fancy italian food, this is a right place for it.
We had been there already more often and food was always good, pizza and pasta!
They have also an open italian wine for a good price, could maybe have more wines by bottle for reasonable prices, but thats a problem on whole Samui.
The Waitress is really nice and friendly, even if they are sometimes really busy specially in high season.
Also they have nice italian Desserts and we had nice Tiramisu, even this was better last year, unfortunately i think they changed the recipe. It was nice this time, but much better last year!
Absolutely to recommend for real Italian Food on Samui and worth also the trip from Chaweng, where most of Italian Restaurants are not so good and more expensive!

“Good italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

It is a nice italian place with a good selection of food. The tortellini is excellent but <I recommend it to take it as a starter. The waiters are ok but not super nice. One thing to make sure is to take mosquito spray as the place is full of them and this can ruin the dinner. They write in front of the door: slow food. and it is true they are not the quickest but this is good.
