Tried this restaurant after seeing good reviews. There is a fairly wide choice of Italian or Thai food,and some good desserts. They ask how spicy you would llike your dish to be and cook it accordingly. Staff are very friendly and helpful. This is not a fancy restaurant, but it is clean and inviting. It looks nothing from the front, but do try this place. We had 2 main courses, 2 desserts and 2 soft drinks, all for £12. Definitely worth a visit.

Thanks Michaela for treating our family to a perfect afternoon. Amazing food & wine and great service.
Best pasta outside of Italy and the Green chicken curry was amazing.
We will be back soon.

We came here as often as we could during our stay in Koh Samui - always remembering to book in advance, of course. As there are only three of them they are careful not to fill all the tables at once, and to stagger the times so that we never had to wait too long for our food. Michele and Sonntaya are very friendly and helpful, the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, and we chatted with quite a few of the other customers. The food is outstandingly good, and Michele is very helpful about advising the right level of chilli heat for each person. We tried lots of different delicious dishes, they were all good but my outstanding favourites were the curry fried fish, the perfectly cooked mixed vegetables, the spaghetti with clams, and the chocolate mousse (wow!).

It's easy to see why this restaurant is so well reviewed. Both the Thai and the Italian dishes are delicious. The seafood ravioli is superb. And save room for the homemade gelato for dessert. The owners are passionate about their food and their service and this shows; expect a warm welcome and an amazing meal!

We walked to the location from Le Merdien and came here based off it being rated #2 on Trip Advisor. Number 2 in Koh Samui??? What are you people talking about??? Do you like it because it is the only place you can pronounce within 2km's?? Or perhaps that the Italian gent who runs the place is friendly? Being friendly does not mean good food. It is a small place located on the very busy, very loud highway. It is exactly like every other place within 2km from there. Food was 50/50. My wife enjoyed the fish with celery and I couldn't taste any flavor in my pork and basil dish. Cost for both with a beer was about 400 THB.
