It was our last night in Koh Tao when we stopped in this restaurant. They told us to wait about half and hour because there were a lot of people (better if you go with reservation). Afgter going to have a drink, we sit down in a table for two people. We ordered pasta and pizza and both of them were delicious!!!!!!!!!!!. The desserts are also incredible and also you have to try the home made juice. Don't forget to stop here if you go to Koh Tao

The pizzas were delicious (and I quote my Italian girlfriend here) and pretty big, the two owners (British? Australian?) Were very friendly and overlooked the service (we even received apologies because our main dishes arrived while we were finished our starters), and the price is reasonable :this place deserves a top5 position in koh Tao restaurants!

My buddy was a bit fed up with Thai food, then we had a dinner here.
Environment is muggy where street side table is marginally acceptable.
I ordered Dry Martini which was not served in short cocktail glass but in whisky glass with a couple of ice cubes. A couple of minutes later, olive was added.
Pasta was far from aldente and overcooked with basil paste.
A plate of dessert was overwhelming in quantity but scanty in quality.
At the end of dinner, the bill was 30-50% higher than that of Thai food dinner in high class hotel in Tao.

Food here is excellent - homemade pasta and pizza, steak imported from NZ and the atmosphere is relaxed. Worth finding if you want a break from the excellent Thai food on offer elsewhere.
