A really tasty Italian meal in Koh Samui with a lovely Italian Chef who gave us limoncello to finish our dinner! The Italian food was great, I was impressed with the Carbonara. The atmosphere in here was great. They had a live band on whilst...we ate. Only complaint is it’s perhaps a little pricey however well worth a treat for some tasty pasta!More

Nice restaurant, nice food, we just found that the food could of been a bit hotter when they brought it to us. It’s a bit on the expensive side. We only ate here once in our weeks stay.

We visited this restaurant twice during our week stay in samui and we really enjoyed it. The Chardonnay and black truffle mash were our favourites. The staff are very attentive and the service is great. The chef even came over to ask us about our...experience at the restaurant and of koh samui. It is an expensive restaurant specially for Thailand prices, but a treat all the same.More

The ambience of Prego is relaxing with great accoustic live music from the perfect duo Julie Ann Lopez and Rommel. Restaurant staffs are very friendly although food is exceptional. I enjoyed drinking red wine while listening to Julie's excellent voice when I was there.

We visited Samui in July'2022 and stayed in Amari. Adjacent to it is Prego which is an authentic Italian Restaurant. Staff is great & very hospitable, very friendly and great chef Mr. Quartararo. Its a must go place to be in Samui.

We loved this restaurant so much we visited twice in the 11 days we had in Koh Samui. The food exactly like all the delicious food I have eaten in Italy but with the superior Thai service, best of both worlds! The owner is so...welcoming and explains the menu, we were a party of 15, we had varied dishes and everyone loved their dish. Don’t over think this, book, eat and enjoy!!!More

It's just one of those 'must do' eats in Samui when you want a night of not eating local cuisine. An institution, where Italy has found its way to Samui - excellent food, great venue. I'll honestly admit I find the staff a little icy...- which is very not like most Thai people. The service is still good - it just feels forced, like they are trying too hard to be 'exclusive' or something. Note to management - the food, atmosphere (love the Italian covers!) and venue are bang on, so the staff should be allowed to just take it in the usual friendly Thai style.More

So for those who will not appreciate culinary details, As simple as 10/10. You should definitely go and enjoy some high quality Italian food. This is my second review of the restaurant, after I went the first time to Prego and got out disappointed. Chef...Piero, contacted me and asked me to try again and come to have a fixed experience. And trust me, I am grateful for that. Will do the review seperated, for you convenience, 1. Atmosphere- 10/10 The live music and the warm welcome from the waitress is something no stranger to me, both times I felt more than welcomed, the service is great and the place itself is so beautiful. 2. Beverages- 10/10 As I would later detail the food choices I made, I chose a red wine to compliment my food the best way, and I chose a pinot noir from a french winery, 2020. Amazing quality of wines. 3. The food- 10/10 Appetizers: as of the Italian tradition goes, a meal will start with some bread and Grissini, and some nice dips that the place make: marinara and pesto, both of great taste, and also half flower of garlic, cooked with oil so it would have the “confit” texture to it. Such delicacy Starters: I went back this time with the simple yet most interesting choice: bruschetta. The tomatoes were SO fresh that it was just so amazing. I added a bit of the confit garlic from the appetizer to each bite, amazing. Main course: Heaven in my mouth. When Chef Piero explained to me how close this dish is to his heart, it all made sense. I could feel his heart inside the dish. Such a good bolognese, to be honest, the best I had ever eaten, and I would not lie, as much as a good cook I proved to be, I can’t recreate this masterpiece that I got. For me its the signatures dish of the restaurant. Such nicely flavored al dente pasta fettuccine, Such amazingly juicy flavored sauce No parmmesan cheese needed, simple, yet amazing. Heaven. Dessert: I dont know how much time you have been to Thailand by the time you get this review, but I think its easy to tell - Thai people do not worship coffee, especially espresso is a stranger to them. This restaurant serves an amazing espresso, but an even much more amazing tiramisu, with home made ricotta cheese that taste so amazing, it will be the final touch of the evening for you feast. 4. Value- 10/10 I paid every penny and I will again and again and again. Such high quality ingredients, such high, intense and accurate flavors, such service and such experience worth every single dime I have. It is so far the Mona-Lisa of imported culinary I ate in Thailand, south to north. Bravo.More

Absolutely amazing restaurant, the service is golden, the food tastes unbelievably great. My friend eats glutenfree - they have their own menu for glutenfree food, huge bonus for great taste. Been 2 weeks in koh samui, ate there 5 times. It literally felt like eating...in italy. The Chef sometimes visits the guests at their tables to check up on them, the waitresses are really lovely, the english language is perfectly spoken there.. over all: best restaurant in koh samui for italian food!!More

Close to Sydney prices, but if you stay at the Amari you get a discount. It's really worth it. Some of the best Italian I've ever eaten!
