“Pleasant break from Thai food”
Reviewed February 25, 2014 via mobile

While we love Thai food, after a couple weeks of traveling we were looking for something different. This place has a pretty eclectic menu with choices from Italian to Russian style. The grilled squid starter was excellent, we had to ask for more bread to soak up the great sauce. The lasagna w/Bolognese and the pizza mista were both quite good. Agree with another review that it wouldn't win awards in Italy, but we were pleased. The service was slow, but they were full when we were there. Overall, worth a try if you need a break from Thai food.

“Not only Pizza!”
Reviewed February 14, 2014 via mobile

We were just amazed how such a small restaurant can offer so many delicious foods.
Pizza is as amazing as everyone mentioned. But also try the steaks, pastas, soups ... Actually everything we tried was great.
Just one problem, it becomes too busy at dinner times which can stretch the waiting time, specially for the pizza. But it's worth waiting.

“Cheap, cheerful and good pizza”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

This place is always busy and it's no surprise. Given the similarity of the surrounding restaurants, Macarona does at least have some kind of niche and one which is welcomed if you're spending a week in Naithon. Given the only other decent pizza you could have would be at the ridiculously overpriced Pullman Hotel, this is a good alternative.

The pizzas are delicious and while they're not going to challenge for awards in Italy, they're not going to leave you bankrupt. The food and service were good and it's not a surprise to see why the place has to turn customers away.

Menu has plenty of variety, just stay away from the garlic bread or bruschetta - bit stale.

After reading good reviews for this restaurant we were disappointed with the reality, the food was average to bad. Will not be going back.

“Nice to have some pizza!”
Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I ate here after about 19 days of eating Thai food in Bangkok, so pizza was a delight to this American/Italian! I really liked the pizza - we had one with shitake mushrooms...again I hadn't had them in the past few weeks so I was very happy. My husband didn't think the pizza was great, I disagree! So you'll have to go to find out for yourself I guess. At least you won't spend too much trying it! The staff was nice too and people watching is at it's finest!!!
