Amazing place in the heart of ao nang, opposite the beach.
Run by a true bred italian who has traveled the world and is more than happy to accommodate you with a smile and his time.

Food: We were jain and thus spoke to him about options and he was more than willing to make the necessary changes.
Entree was a tomato soup, fresh and hearty.
Main Course: A baked pasta lasagne with vegetables and pesto sauce and a spaghetti with pink sauce loaded with vegetables. Very well made and delicious.

Kudos to the owner for a great experience and well deserved certificate of excellence.

I had a good experience here and really enjoyed the food the first time. I took an early dinner and the restaurant was not that busy, but that changed soon. The tomato soup was extremely tasty and served with croutons and parmesan; it was a big portion. The pizza was thin and crispy, exactly how I like it and the cheese toppings were good. After a few days I went there again and wanted to try something else. I tried to order the raw prawns as a starter but was more or less discouraged by the remarks of the waitress that I would be better off taking something else, which sounded very strange to me. So I ended up with the same tomato soup which was as good as before. The main course pork tenderloin with Parma ham was ok but nothing to shout about. My first visit would have been rated 5 star but my 2nd visit was not more than 3 star. I would go back again but would be a bit more careful in what to choose.

Good food, pizza, pasta all non Thai in Krabi. My pasta with seafood was very good, the kids had nice pizza's and the tiramisu tasted well. If you don't eat Thai and you are in Krabi, this is a good alternative. The Italian owner is very friendly and you get just good value for your money. You can't really go wrong here. No reservations taken, so go on time, before it can get pretty full after 7 PM.

It is unfortunate when you want to like a place and the owner spoils it for you. We ordered some food which was OK but we saw the pizzas come out for other tables and they looked really dreadful. A piece of dry pastry with a piece of ham on top. The wine selection was very poor and the wait for food was far too long (over an hour). While we sat trying to be patient a group came in and smoked next to a table of parents with young children who were trying to eat dinner. The smoke covered the family. Then another family came in and had to sit at separate tables. When their wait was over an hour they paid for their drinks and left without having anything to eat at all. When we finished our meal the owner told us his credit card machine was broken and we had to pay cash. When we objected to this he yelled at us and continued to yell at us as we walked away up the street. This restaurant has reasonable food but the experience is awful. Save yourself the pain and go to a restaurant which is a pleasant experience. Who needs this when you can enjoy many good restaurants in the area. The owner or maître d' is only really interested in taking orders and then getting the cash, not providing a really good evening for the customer.
