While staying at Le Meridien (see separate review) we hesitated and were superbly happy that we chose to celebrate our wedding anniversary in the friendly and most professional care of the Favola Team. The veal was to die for and the seafood casserole was a marvel. Generous top quality Italian charcuteries as a starter. Thank you indeed Chef Matteo Verini,... More

I don't know if we visited on a quiet night but the restaurant was empty! The food and service were great though but the lack of customers gave no atmosphere. Perhaps we were unlucky!

From the first moment, this was a perfect evening dinner. Impeccable service, rare in this area. Meaningful personal recommendations on food items from the Head Chef. Outstanding wine list and heavenly desserts. This dining experience could have occurred in any modern European restaurant, such a luxury to have Favola and Chef Matteo Verini here in Chiang Mai. 100% positive evening,... More

Back to Favola and, this time, for a celebration. I certainly did not make a mistake picking up this Italian restaurant for this special occasion. A special menu had been prepared by Exec. Chef Patrick Perie. Everything was excellent and the attention that we received was beyond 'special'. Pastry Chef Zulal Dalbas had prepared a unique cake, which was creative,... More

The whole evening was simply amazing. Some of the best staff I've seen around asia, and the food is just world class. We had the beef fillet, spaghetti carbonara, and the vitello tonnato, you can just tell that the Chef loves what he does. I can highly recommend all of these dishes. The restaurant is also run by a great... More

While I am sure I liked the food and its presentation better than anywhere in Italy, the service was just very good, not excellent. It seems unfair to point out the only flaw while everything else seemed perfect, but it might help to raise the awareness of the management which was probably absent, too. When we finished dinner quite early... More

Went to chinatown one afternoon and then walked over to the night market. We were hungry but in the mood for a restaurant and not street food. TripAdvisor informed us Favola was nearby and ww decided to give it a try. The only disappointing part for me was it is a hotel restaurant - which makes it more pricey and... More

Had a fantastic time at the Favola restaurant with Matteo. He created a perfect clam linguine that wasn't on the menu. The rest of the entrees were also perfect. Highly recommended.
