We overheard a guy recommending this place while riding on the Tuk-tuk to Lonely beach. He said it wouldn't be cheap but it would be the best food on the island; he was right! Everything about the experience was wonderful and felt extravagant. The owner brought us free Limoncello that he had made himself and the food was unbelievably good.... More

We looked at this place by daylight and thought it was not that cosy but it was totally different in the evening. Had a very nice carpaccio and great pizza with a nice wine. The cream limoncello was also very good. Marco is a very good host. Highly recommended when you want a break of Thai food

Fancied a pizza so stopped by as we were near, greeted by Marco on arrival who then proceeded to turn chef. Went for a special to start, the grande antipasto.. Which was a mega plate of cold cuts, carpaccio, bruschetta and mozzarella cheese. A bit too much for two, but we were hungry. Main was a parma ham pizza with... More

Delicious pizza. Best tiramisu I've had in Thailand. Special grappa served with dessert with an espresso. The owner Marco took time to chat with us for a good 15 minutes. There's a lot of heart in this restaurant. We will be back again.

Average Italian fare, not great. Many reviewers gave it a big thumbs up, and while I will not give it a thumbs down, I was not impressed. Maybe I expected more based on the reviews, which I now think were heavily biased, or have never really tasted good Italian food.

My wife and I want for dinner tonight. The food was very good. I could have used a little more food on my plate, but the taste was good. And what really made my wife's night. They had gluten free pasta as an alternative. Which is the first place she has been able to find that in Asia. So she... More

We tried this local by Tripadvisor and we are disappointed. This restaurant is dirty, simple, neglected. Type for Russian turists. We don't undertstand why this local has 2th place on the Tripadvisor list.

Jo met us at the front door. Graciously escorted us to the table. Explained the specials and recommended many dishes. Food was one of the best I have tasted. Duck ravioli was among the best

From the moment we were greeted by the owner and his little assistant, Marco & Jo restaurant was a pure delight. We were the only table in the restaurant for lunch and ordered some of the specials and off the menu as well. All of the food was absolutely delicious. Margarita pizza was a winner for Mr. Picky!
