We usually avoid pizza whilst travelling but celli's was recommended so thought we would give it a try. Glad we did! We had lasagne which tasted exactly like nonna had made it. Yum! And the pizza was sooooooo good! Perfect thin crispy base and just the right amount of topping! (Not overstuffed) the owners were lovely, warm and hospitable. Would definitely return and definitely recommend!!

Best pizza we have eaten in a long time! The dough is perfect, the toppings original Italian and all is baked to perfection in a wood-fired oven. The Italian couple had a pizzeria in Turin before and just could not live without having guests to cater for at their retirement home Samui. Even if you are not tired yet of Thai food, treat yourself at Celli´s.

After two weeks of Thai food we were looking for some familiar european food. Celli"s is the best place to enjoy a real italian pizza on Ko Samui. We had a nice starter (salad), pizza and very nice homemade dessert (Tiramisu and Panna Cotta). All food was very delicious, but especially the pizza was one of the best pizzas we ever had.
Very friendly owners and a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

We have been 4 times to this restaurant and each time I was fascinated by the taste of pizza. I've been to Rome and I had pizzas there, but what I had in Celli's was much better! I recommend "Diavola" (spicy one) and "Marcelieza" (onion and blue cheese). They make it in real oven with real wood burning.
The place is cool and tidy (not like the most of local restaurants), music is nice and hosts are very friendly. Not cheap, but not too expensive. The taste of pizza really worth its money.
You think it is wrong to go to Italian place in Thailand? No! Samui becomes the crossroad for people from all over the world. And you can have real european food made by real europeans.
Grazie!

The title says it all. Genuine food, great taste and a lovely atmosphere. Carlo comes from a part of Italy close to my father-in-law's birthplace (Puglia) so my wife and he had plenty to chat about. The food he creates is superb and I would totally recommend it to anyone looking for an authentic slice of Italy. Grazi Carlo.
