Quality Italian food, well presented by courteous staff, in ambient surroundings. Also a quality Italian wine list if you have deep pockets. Hard to go past any of the pastas - would recommend any of them.

We had dinner in the main area with blue neon lights. The ambience was terrific, as was the attentive service and generous size portions. Would definitely recommend.

We visited twice and enjoyed a pizza treat and lovely pasta. Very reasonable with good portions and great wine. Staff are friendly and helpful with the Italian flare from Carlo(?). Go there you will love it!

We visited La Taverna on 3 occasions during our stay this February in Koh Samui. The restaurant is tucked away just off the main strip of Chawng Road, just across the road from Cha Cha Moon. The restaurant is like an oasis of calm. You wouldn't think it was so lively and chaotic outside once you step inside. It's dark,... More

Ate here with our 18 month old baby and wife. Amazing fresh Italian food, something you would not expect in Thailand. The pastas are amazing and great serving, along with the thin based pizzas and gorgeous setting, you must try this place when in Samui.

We came here for a change from all the Thai food and we were impressed with what we got. the portions were really generous and the food was lovely - I tried to tackle a pizza on my own and failed miserably due to the sheer size of it, would be much better shared! Lovely atmosphere too, the courtyard was... More

We found this place randomly on a map and because we needed a destination we decided to aim for it. We had trouble finding it because it's literally like a whole in the wall. However once you go through it you realize that the restaurant is HUGE. With glowing lights, fountains and statues. The fountains were literally overflowing which wasn't... More

This is clearly the best italian restaurant on samui. Try the italian antipasto and the pizza! you wont be sorry. The owner is really nice and always looks after the well-beeing of the customers.

Thank rattazzi
