“We must be easily pleased!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

I cant understand what all the whining is a about, maybe we got lucky or something!
We tried Pinnochios by accident rather than by referral. We needed a break from Thai food so gave it a try. Real table cloths and napkins, clean, fast efficient service, good quality freshly prepared food, pleasant staff capable of understanding English, and reasonably priced, what's not to like?
During our stay we tried Pizza, seafood pasta, and calamari, all of which were super tasty and we struggled to clear our plates each time, I'm half Italian and make a pretty good pasta and pizza myself so I know a nice one when a see it, and would certainly recommend Pinocchios.
If you fancy dressing up a bit (relative term in Khao lak ;0), and want a break from Pad Thais and Mansaman Curries, this place will do nicely.
(As for there "not being much thai food on the menu".....Well, Duh! There's a clue in the name eh?)

“Not bad Pizza at all”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

There comes a time when you probably cant face any more Curry's or Rice and so western food becomes a welcome respite. The Pizza's here are cooked in a wood fire oven and all are made fresh to order. Tasty and good value in the centre of Bang Niang.

“Not a really good italian restaurant.”
Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant came recommended by Thai locals but I doubt they've ever dined there. I noticed the poor reviews after eating there and I agree with most. The pizza was ok, but I ordered the 3 cheese pasta and couldnt eat it. The mixed salad was very bland and desert was supersized, but also nothing special. There are many other italian restaurants in Khao lak with better reviews, so why bother eating here!

“Value for money”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

After experiencing many Thai meals while in Thailand we decided on a pizza for a change when in
Khaolak. The owner, Ramon, was on site and chatted with the patrons in a friendly and welcoming manner. We had a salami pizza which had a base that was definitely one of the better bases we have tasted. The pizza was tasty, sufficient for two and along with the service we considered good value for money. An enjoyable eating experience.
