You can see the owners medals over the wall, inside and outside the restaurant. But when you meet him, he is a very kind man that worries only for... More

We visited this restaurant in 2003 and remembered it fondly when we walked by today, so we decided to book. We were thrilled with the excellent food and hospitality. Chef Angelo talked us through the menu and the specialities. My husband's prosciutto and melon (his favourite appetiser) was excellent! My prawn cocktail delicious. Homemade pappardelle with fresh eggplant, tomatoes and... More

Very authentic Italian food in Chiang Mai! We were craving something different than Thai food and our meal at Piccola Roma was perfect. My husband and I both had gnocci and we enjoyed every bite. I would have never imagined having such good Italian food in Thailand! All of the pastas are homemade. The chef was very gracious and hospitable... More

We weren't sure what to make of the restaurant at first because from the outside, the travel agency sign makes it a bit confusing. We remember hearing years ago it was good so decided to give it a try. The pasta was out of this world. Seriously the best I've had in Thailand. The produce is fresh and Angelo and... More

My sister and I had an absolutely sensational meal at Piccola Roma Palace, recently. Authentic Italian food . . so tasty! The staff were friendly and helpful . . even ringing a driver for us to take us back into the hills were we were staying and ensuring he knew where he was going. Much appreciated.

Piccola Roma is a must stop for any farang craving great Italian cuisine in the Night Bazaar area of Chiang Mai. I've tried most of the menu items during my multiple visits. Never had anything but a fantastic meal. My favorite is the fettuccini porcini with a glass of red wine. Dining is more than a verb at Piccola Roma.... More

We went for pizza and were very very pleased we came here: super delicious, with tempting light crust and super cheese. Pasta and bruschetta too were wiped out. And Bravo to Angelo the chef! His charm has made this place Italy!
