As a resident of Rawai I had seen this restaurant open and made no plans visit, there are a number of italian restaurants in the area and the though of one more did not excite me. However yesterday I decided to give it a try, I had seen the customer base growing (slowly) over the year.
I am "So glad I went'
The decor is Chic and you have the welcome choice of inside and outside seating. We had a drink outside, went inside to eat and back outside for coffee after the meal, so made the most of the choice.
The menu is really impressive, rather than one or two choices of items such a tagliatelle or ravioli they offer a whole page of choices of each, with some really welcome and different combinations not often found in other Italian restaurants. One of my favorite dishes is Risotto and as with most of the meals I was presented with a world of wonderful choices & flavors to pick from. I am usually wary to order Risotto in Thailand as all to often I am let down and served a stodgy and disappointing meal, so I waited with baited breath. i am glad to report it was a taste explosion when it arrived. My friends ordered Tagliatelle and spaghetti and both commented how good it tasted.
I had the house red wine which was well priced and delicious and they make a decent liquor coffee too.
I found the price very reasonably, especially given the quality of the food served.
My only criticism was the service was mixed, they have a lot of staff and some are better than others. On arrival my friends drink order was taken but the waitress did not wait or ask for my drinks order which was not a good start & a little rude as I was sat next to him ???. they can be very slow and the restaurant was not that busy when we went, so no real excuse. Given they do add 10% service charge the service should be better or they should drop the charge and allow tips to dictate the staffs reward. Perhaps then they would care more about the customers experience.
The above minor critique was not a major issue and I will be visiting this Restaurant a lot in the future I am sure. It is a very welcome addition to the Rawai Restaurant scene.
