“Excellent Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

We visited this restaurant 3 times during our 11 night stay in Chaweng. The food is lovely, well presented and good portions. It's not overly expensive (1 starter, 2 main, 2 sweets, 1 coffee and ½ litre of house red for £50). The owners are welcoming and make sure everything is perfect. All the staff are friendly and the restaurant is spotlessly clean. I would highly recommend a visit.

“Authentic and amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Just loved this place. The owner Carlo makes this place special. The other Italian manager provides equally good service. Carlo personally goes to every table when people arrive, during their meal and at the end to ensure everything is going well. It is not intrusive at all, just very welcoming warm and friendly.

I had the homemade cannelloni with spinach and ricotta - it was delicious. One of the best things I have eaten in Koh Samui.

The interiors of the restaurant are well done, and the bathrooms are spacious and clean - always important if you have been out and about during the day and need to freshen up.

Would highly recommend this place over anything else.

“Great and authentic Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We had a great night at La Taverna. The food was excellent and we enjoyed the service of the friendly staff. A nice conversation with the owner of this great restaurant made us feel very welcome. It is a little pricy but the atmosphere, the food and the service is worth it.
