“Good Italian Food in Thailand”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

We were a little apprehensive eating Italian food in Thailand, not knowing what to expect. But, we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food here. We had the caprese salad, spinach ravioli and mushroom pizza and all of it was good. It will satisfy your craving for Italian food after only eating Thai food for days and days.

“Excellent food, great view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

This place has delicious thai (sea)food and also offers some italian dishes (pizza, pasta, antipasti, etc.), steak and nice salads. The terrace is amazing, since you're overlooking the seafront of Ao Nang. We would come back any time!

“Really nice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

I ate here as part of a large group (12 of us) and I could not fault this restaurant. The food was delicious, the service was great, it was well priced and it is very well located. I'd definitely recommend it!

“A tasty Thai (and Italian) treat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

We ate here four times during our ten night stay in Ao Nang, and were never disappointed - we even chose this restaurant to celebrate our engagement! Unfortunately, we never got a seat overlooking the sea, but were happy to settle for the sound of the lapping waves! Sala Bua and Lo Spuntino was such a good find for us, as I love to try the local fare but my fiancé is a little less adventurous and his fave dish is pizza. The restaurant is set back from the main road, but definitely worth the detour! Great cocktails, and choice of beers. We spent a little more here than we did at other restaurants, but it was worth it. Wish I could go back here again tomorrow!

“Did a great job with a big group.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

We turned up with no booking and a group of 15 of us, and of course they were very happy to see us on a wet rainy night. The food was all very good and the service was fast. Even remembered where all the meals went, and timed very close for everyone, something not so common in Ao Nang.

There were a number of other tables and groups there, and even with only 3-4 staff on the floor, I did not see anyone waiting long for anything.
