We tried the restaurant of the Kalume resort and we had one of the best surprise ever. A real Italian restaurant with Italian ingredients and a excellent choice of taste and quantity. We tried the tortelloni and pasta all'arrabbiata and both were really perfect. We...drank mango shake that we loved! The service was attentive and kind. Beautiful dinner!More

the pizzas are good but not extraordinary, however the price is extraordinarily expensive, this restaurant only does Italian cuisine, no Thai dishes (too bad) nice setting and friendly staff but do not wear masks like the majority of people on the Isle

Without Kalume our 6 night stay on Koh Kradan would of been a big bust. Our hotel on Koh Kradan had a restaurant...but...we ate at Kalume every day. The quality of their food was way above expectations for such a remote location...on par with good...restaurants in Italy.More

Authentic Italian pizza, pasta and some quality dessert options too. We were blown away to find food better than our last trip to Italy on a remote Thai island! Understandably popular.

Food is good and a lot of it is homemade which is nice. It’s such a shame the staff aren’t more friendly or engaging as that would really top off the view and the effort they put into the food. Also please be aware that...this restaurant is part of a child free hotel - this wasn’t clear to us so may not be to others - we came here for breakfast with our (admittedly noisy!) kids and were told that my 3 year old “needed to learn” 🤦🏻‍♀️ and they don’t normally allow kids for breakfast.More

Even though we were staying nearby, we chose to eat here most nights and whilst they served Italian food our preference is always local and the chef, whom I assume was Thai, cooked amazing food, the Chicken and Cashews was the best I have ever...eaten. Even though we were a captive audience the price was very reasonable. And if you were fortunate enough to be Italian you would have had the owner come over and talk to you but if you were Brits like us you would have been ignored! Hey Ho we only came for the food which was brilliant.More

Very nice restaurant with good food. You can tell the owner takes pride and care for how he caters to the food, ambience and more. The italian food looked delicious but we stuck with Thai as we wanted to enjoy as much thai food as...possible on our trip. Would just recommend that the staff be more friendly and engaging. Overall, a nice restaurant which we recommend.More

Wonderful atmosphere, friendly staff. We loved hanging out in the raised cabana. You could lay down in the shade and feel completely welcomed.

Overall this is some of the best food we have had in our 4 trips to Thailand. We stayed 4 nights and ate most of our meals here. We ventured out twice to other places (once to the Italiano and once to Kradan Resort) and...both were a huge disappointment.byou can order anything off the menu and it's bound to be delicious. Yes the prices are a bit on the high side but they have to source ingredients from the mainland. You are paying island tax essentially... Just get used to it. The food is amazing, it's worth it. Now the service can be a bit slow. We noticed the staff seem to work long hours and the place can get quite busy so I suggest just relaxing and waiting it out. The pizzas are absolutely phenomenal. I highly suggest a little olive oil and balsamic to dip your pizza crusts in. The crust was really too knotch. Penang and green curry were delicious. The vegetables on the sweet and sour pork were so crisp and fresh. My husband also had a Thai dish that was a soy sauce and basil base but I can remember the name off hand. It was very tasty. The pad Thai was decent. Nothing to write home about but certainly good. The American breakfast was also very filling. My husband and I found it was big enough for us to split every morning. Do yourself a favor skip the other restaurants on the island and just eat here. You won't regret it.More

Decent pizza but the staff seem a bit miserable / bored, a few smiles would probably make people want to come back again.
