I have eaten in many places in Phuket but although many claim to serve a decent standard of food none come close to achieving Western Standards but Gaetana definitely does. Aside from attention to details and the owner making an effort to be friendly with his customers the food is excellent and I have been to much more expensive places... More

We found this place on Trip Adviser for our last night meal after 2 weeks island hopping - we had eaten in various places from a market stall to back street restaurants and wanted a treat - and boy did we find one! Booked online easily, our table was waiting with a lovely welcome from the owner Gianni upon arrival.... More

My husband and I have been regular customers for a number of years now and we have never been disappointed, but it seems to me that the quality of the food is even better than it ever was before. The owners, Gianni and his Thai wife ensure that from the beginning to the end of your meal everything is perfect... More

The food is amazing. Many friends have a good relation to the owner and it was really shocking for me to be greeted by an apparently very arrogant man (the owner). Despite greeting him with a warm "buonasera" when I entered the place he was somehow so disturbed by me that he completely ignored my friend (one of his best... More

The restaurant is located in the middle of old phuket town. It's walking distance from Robinson department store. The owner has a warm hospitality with every guest. Food there is nice although it can be costly for some meals. Pasta and desserts are something I enjoyed the most during the dinner. The atmosphere is good for couple or small group... More

Taking a friend to a restaurant one has thoroughly enjoyed previously is always risky! We shouldn't have worried! Our friend announced it was one of the "very best restaurants in the world" ... if not "the best"! Phew ... what a relief! But he is absolutely correct ... La Gaetana is an culinary delight but it is more than that... More

Google map has the wrong indication which led us to a 150m further down the road. Fortunately the staff gave us correct indication and thanks to the Chinese temple on the opposite side of the street which is an obvious landmark and a safe place to park. The Italian owner has kept the original style of the house which made... More
