“Traditional Italian Food”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

I dinned here with my two teenage daughters who are very picky when it comes to Italian food, as we are of Italian heritage. Riverspoon did not disappoint, it serves authentic Italian food, at a reasonable price. I had the gnocchi, which was superb. Overall a fantastic experience with a homely Italian feel restaurant. Would certainly return.

“Authentic Italian”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

The food is prepared by two Italian guys, the chef and the pizzaiolo. Pizza here is surprisingly good, close to the Napoli ideal. Barramundi in Italian herbs was succulent. Profitroles were just OK, as was pasta.
Nice views across the lake.
A bit expensive for Phuket, but worth it.
Free pick-up from Laguna hotels.

“Good but poor value”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

Food here was absolutely superb. Genuine Italian cuisine. The risotto was one of the best I have had. However, the value was poor. The dinner, two courses with a bottle of mid level wine cost $180 Australian. The killer us the 10% service charge and then the 7% govt tax. I thought cuisine outside of our hotel would be cheaper - apparently not

“Riverspoom is not just a resturant, it's a home away from home.”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

Weather the sky's are grey and the rain merciless, or the sun gods in full costume, Riverspoon will be welcoming and able to deliver to even the most discerning Italien affociando. It's shabby sheak, with an attitude, and if you're lucky, you may get the attention of the chef / owner and delicious off-the-menu bites will appear as if by magic. Few restaurants, can can claim the status of an "institution", and especially in its infancy. However, Riverspoon delivers, charms, surprises, and challenges competitors. If you embrace it like family you will enjoy and will be taken care off beyond the normal resturant experience. An institution for sure!!!

“Good Food, Good Service, Warm Welcome Each Time”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

Dining at River Spoon is always fun and enjoyable, with lots of Italian food delights from Chef Roberto and his lovely staff members.
Pasta Carbonara and Seafood Aglio are so delicious, and truly al dente style. Pizzas-divine! Profiterole-out of this world, delightful! Prosciutto ham assortment as starter if so good.
Will come back soon.
