We have visited this tiny place only because of tripadvisor reviews. It looks like a cheap thai place, never would expect it, but oh my - this chef is amazing! Very delicious food, great menu and quality. Will be visiting again and again.

We ordered....satay,pasta and grilled pork tenderloin...at first i was worried that it might not be good cause my wife normally checks the the first top 3 restaurants in the area but she was so hungry and just wanted to eat...i recommend this place looking for a good fusion meals at affordable prices...even got to meet the chef.

We were recommended this place by Sasha, the new chef at the Dusit thani Laguna. The Massamam beef curry was the nicest curry I have ever had. The place is also dirt cheap.

Amazing big menu with a lot of choices from western (French) to Thai food. The name put you in a wrong direction, this is not een Italian restaurant. The chef is Thai with allot of International experience. But, for not being a Itallian, the best spaghetti I ever eat. Also his fish menus are very tasty.

Had the seafood platter here which was a decent size feed, almost big enough for 2 people, the service was pretty good, the function they had on the beach ruined the atmosphere, the price was a little costly but worth the money.

Great selection of beautifully prepared western dishes. This place is an absolute must visit in that it offers incredible food at Thai prices. The chef/owner clearly puts his heart and soul into preparing the food. The only downside is the service (which is virtually the same anywhere you go in Phuket that offers western food at Thai prices). The servers... More

We have never had a bad dinner here - the quality is consistent, the selection of both the European and Thai dishes interesting. Just don't expect everything to arrive too quickly or at the same time! The Caesars Salad is perfection, the tuna and scallop starters both delicious.

Everything we do in the kitchen, from using subtle textures and flavours, to seeking out the freshest local produce has the same objective: to stimulate the palate and delight the senses.

Our menu which is inspired by authentic Mediterranean and Thai flavours creates a fusion of tradition and innovation, uniting yesterday and tomorrow.

Our aim is to transform classic Mediterranean dishes through the use of bold, Asian inflected seasonings and unexpected flavor combinations to draw the basic essence and nuanced flavours of quality ingredients to the fore and allow them to truly shine.
