If you stay in the Southern end of Phuket and you fancy fresh pasta, then give Da Renata a try. The Lasagna and the Spaghetti we had was certainly home made and delicious. we had also an antipasti as appetizer which was plenty for 2 people. There are lots of Italian restaurants in Phuket, who else prepares their paste fresh?

The worst insalata mista I've ever had - little greens but loads of shredded carrot & coarsely sliced onion & tomato - nothing else. Incompetent & impolite service Hot & squashed environment Even the vino was below our expectations

We have eaten there many times and enjoyed some great food. The last time we went we arrived at about 18:30, big neon sign outside with the word OPEN! We sat down and one of the staff moodily mopped around our feet, a kitchen staff member came out and in Thai asked what these idiots were doing here early and... More

One of the things I miss when I leave Rawai, is the Carbonara they make at Da Renata. I see someone is complaining about the size of the portions, but they are not small by my standards. My wife and I have sometimes shared one portion if we are not very hungry.

This is another one we visited twice during our stay as it was so good. It's more Hai Narn than Rawai but inly 200bhat in a cab.On both visits there were a number of italian customers enjoying the food and ambience which I think highlights how authentic the food is. We had an octopus starter which is up there as... More

I live in Nai harn and decided to check this place out with 5 other friends. We all ordered differently ranging from lasagne, carbonara, spaghetti bolognaise and Ravioli. Firstly the service was super slow, 1hr from sitting down to food arriving. The portions were very small by anyone's standards and given the prices you would expect large portions. I actually...

This is one of the best place to eat italian food. Renata is an excellent italian chef from Romagna. Her specialities: Tortellini, passatelli, parmigiana and the special bread from the middle italy that is named 'piadina'
