I don't get the previous reviews as the food we've been served was on point and not that expensive ! As a starter we took the 100 Baths pesto bruschetta (2,60€!) and it was both generous in quantity and well prepared (the Italian way). As main we've taken a pizza (thin crust, very good topping including the goat cheese). The... More

Had a lovely evening at this spot with some impressive cuisine. Not something that we would have expected from here.

I went here by myself when i was craving pasta. I chose the pasta with salmon. Although it was ready very quickly (almost to quickly for fresh pasta), it tasted fine. Staff is kind. Great atmosphere, very romantic.

Only place on the island which serves good Italian food . It's slightly expensive but worth every penny . Their pizzas are really good and they do home delivery as well . They also have a good spread of wines

The pizza dough tasted fresh and authentic, and the pasta was perfectly seasoned and cooked. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to those staying in koh tao, and if you're looking for delicious Italian... More

This has got to be one of the best restaurants on this part of the island, the food was out of this world and just couldn't help but go back quite a few times. The staff here were amazing and it was always busy, to the point of people waiting for seating. Definitely worth a visit. 10/10 from me.
