I loved this restaurant! The owner really made an effort to personalize your experience. He took all the orders in the restaurant and served the food to you. The food was absolutely amazing. A little taste of Italy in the middle of Chiang Mai! A bit pricey for Thailand but definitely worth it. Be prepared to spend a few hours... More

As soon as you walk in the door, Chef Angelo offers his attention to making your party and dining experience unforgettable. He's been doing it for 25 years and it's obvious he has just as much passion as ever. He's Chef, party entertainer, sommelier, owner, and culinary Sherpa. He gently guides you towards the proper pairings of wine and food.... More

The food here is authentic Italian with first-quality ingredients; the flavours are delicate taking you all the way back to Roma. The Chef is old-school: very stern with his staff and gently able to tell you that you have chosen the wrong wine to accompany your pasta - some may be offended by this but we were hugely amused, especially...

We had been in Thailand for over a week and while we enjoyed the local cuisine, we had a taste for something more familiar. The interior of the restaurant was elegant and festive. The owner/chef, Angelo Faro met us as we arrived and when we were seated came out to the table and described the ingredients that were special for... More

The chef/owner makes a point of showing you the fresh ingredients, which I liked because it helped guide my choices. The portions were generous, as was the hospitality! The after dinner limoncello was the perfect authentic, Italian touch.

Very friendly staff. The owner makes the effort to welcome you in person and to explain and show his fresh products. This gives you the feeling as if you are in Italy itself. The food is amazing. Everything is fresh and so tastefull. I had the Quatro formaggio penne and my friend the spaghetti with tomato sauce and tuna. Very... More

We weren't planning on eating Italian in Thailand. On the recommendation of friends who swore it was amazing, we decided to try it. Not only were we surprised, it was by far the best Italian food I have had in years. The owner/chef imports everything from Italy including wine. He makes homemade pasta daily. We had a caprese salad and... More
