“Yummmy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

Pizza night every Thu and Sun. Ask anybody and they will go tell you to have Jenny's pizza, the best on the island!

“Generous pizza in Chaloklum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

The setting is quite rudimentary, though it will feel familiar to anyone who has dined elsewhere on Koh Phangan. The view of the bay is quite nice; I recommend a spot outdoors. As for the food, the serving of pizza I had was extremely generous and quite tasty. I opted for something I never had before: tuna, olives, and onions, which turned out to be a very tangy and pickled mix indeed. Friendly service, decent prices; all in all a good restaurant to check out when in Chaloklum.

“One of the best pizzas on Koh Phangan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

Off the main tourist roads, this pizza place opens at 17:00 but still worth paying a visit. Although the oven is not wood burnt, the owner masters perfect pizzas. The choice of wines is poor (as everywhere on the island), the setting is very basic. But the place has a great atmosphere and it is very difficult sometimes to get a table. Closed on Wednesdays.

“This is the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2011 via mobile

Chaloklum bay is a quaint fishing village on the north edge of Koh Phangan.  Cucina Italiana is right in the center of the bay, to the left of the pier.  You enter from the street with beach seating in the back. This is a charming home-style restaurant with Gianni, the Italian owner presiding from the kitchen over his happy diners. "Everything fresh today. Homemade." He loves to say. His passion shows through with every mouthwatering bite.  The fresh homemade egg noodles served with any sauce you like melts in your mouth.  The mozzarella butter sauce was the kids' favorite.  The pizza here is phenomenal.
If Rome had a perfect cozy restaurant with an incredible bay view of the Gulf of Siam where you sank your toes in the sand while you ate, it would be this place.  I ate here 5 times and cannot wait to go back!
