We barely managed to eke out a week of almost pure bliss on Koh Lipe just before this vicious pandemic third wave threw everything sideways and backward in Thailand. I’ve been saying the past several weeks that the wonderful memories we spent absorbing Lipe is...about the only thing keeping me going through this dark summer of our discontent. One great memory my husband and I and our two friends have from Lipe is our dinner at this restaurant. We dropped by figuring we could easily snag a table after watching the sunset at Zodiac (and listening to Eve spin great tunes), but after wending our way back a small soi, it was obviously the kind of place where you needed a reservation. There weren’t a ton of tables, but the best ones were in the center in the open air, which is where we wanted to sit and because everyone there looked so happy with what they were eating, we made a reservation for the next evening. After a day of lazily sunning ourselves on the beach, we freshened up and headed to what ended up being some of the best Italian food I’ve had in a long time. There are several very good Italian restaurants in Bangkok, where we live, but the food we had here at Capriccio easily ranks as good, if not better. Other reviews can walk you through the options, but know that of four of us, we tried eight different things and no one was unhappy with anything (I especially enjoyed the vegetarian pizza, with huge pieces of broccoli topping a perfectly cooked crust. Other reviewers might complain about the slowness, and yes, things did take longer than maybe you think appropriate, but have easily acclimated to island time, we were fine nursing our drinks and sitting under the starry sky. When the food arrived, whatever length of time had passed was immediately forgotten as we stuffed our faces. The restaurant is reasonably priced for the quality of food, and will be on our list to return when we’re back on Lipe. This place is not to be missed and will add to the quality of your Lipe vacation. Highly recommended on all counts.More

So glad we decided to try this lovely restaurant. We went there twice so I can leave a comment for 3 different pasta dishes. Bolognese: simply one of the best ones I had in Thailand, very original taste. Home made Tagliatelle with mushrooms (w. truffle...oil): Tagliatelle cooked to perfection al dente, very good sauce, could have had a bit more truffle taste for my gusto. Aglio e Olio: as always perfect al dente and spiced to perfection. We also had a Rib Eye Steak ordered medium: cooked perfect as ordered, solid cut beautiful flavor. Serious skills on that one chef! Garnished with very fresh veggies and roasted potatoes. Red wine sauce also very good but actually don’t need with the rich flavor of the meat. Prices for me absolutely justified. Could have a better selection of wines but I guess that’s a great challenge on the island. Also the ambiance of this restaurant topps out others around. Although we found a couple other restaurants on the island with good food now the difference maker: the waiting staff! So friendly and upbeat, always smiling and we felt like we where served by good friends. Thanks to all! Hope the Grappa arrived ;)More

We ate here countless times during our stay on Lipe. Due to covid there is a limited menu but there are still many options available. They definitely have the best pizza on the island. Pasta is tasty also, especially the specials of lasagne and ravioli....Very nice Italian wines to enjoy also. Staff all very friendly, we loved Virginia serving us! We will definitely be back to Lipe and Capriccio.More

Hi Alex, Thanks for your review. Sorry for that night, it was a difficult night for the kitchen and you wait much longer of what is our standard. It's difficult time to prevent what is going to happen. I keep open the restaurant for all...More

My wife and I went here one night as we wanted to eat Italian food on Ko Lipe. The restaurant is of an open-air Thai-style pavilion with a few tables and an adjacent “chilling out” type of bar. We first started with an aperol-spritz and...a glass of wine. The spritz was exactly as we regularly enjoyed in Rome during our daily aperitivo. The wine by the glass was affordable and of good quality - somewhat uncommon in Thailand. We then started dinner with the Australian beef carpaccio with mascarpone. The beef was thinly sliced and soft as is expected with carpaccio. However, though the ingredients were fresh and delicious, we felt that overall, the carpaccio lacked taste a bit so a few additional spices and/or ingredients would have been welcomed. I then had the truffles ravioli. I could taste the fresh pasta which were reminiscent of this small local restaurant we used to eat at often in Florence. The taste was good but I felt that it had too many mushrooms and little of the truffles taste that I’m accustomed to. Notwithstanding, I enjoyed the overall taste and it was very good. My wife had the seafood spaghetti. She reported that there was plenty of seafood but again, she felt that it lacked a bit of taste which she fixed by adding spices to it. We finished our dinner by sharing a tiramisu and boy! That was delicious!!Though it did not seem to have been made with any alcool as we’re used to, it was light and fluffy and very very tasty. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Finally, throughout our dinner, staff were very attentive and came to see us often without being intrusive, making our evening enjoyable even though it was raining massively out there! All in all, this restaurant deserves its good TripAdvisor rating and we recommend it when in Ko Lipe! Enjoy!More

We were in Koh Lipe for few days and we went to this original Italian restaurant following the suggestions of our accommodation's owner (he is Italian as well!). The location is super good, just on the side of the walking street and the first impression...is super good even before taking a seat. You can immediately see there is love in what Marco does just looking at the beautiful building he created for this restaurant. And talking about food... He offers many different choices, some regional special dishes and some classic options. You can have pasta, pizza, meat or fish and everything will be fresh and well cooked.. With lots of love! I had the best "spaghetti alle vongole" since the day i left Italy 3 years ago. The taste was great. What's the secret? All the ingredients are fresh and original from Italy.. And then the way Marco runs his place is the cherry on the cake: a deep love for the island and a great passion for cooking. Once you'll try his hand made white "focaccia" you will totally fall in love with this place.. And then u must continue with all the rest of your dinner! If you go to Like, you must try Capriccio and meet Marco!!!More

Food is very good, with fresh carpaccio fish and pasta homemade. I tried gnocchi and it was a beautiful recipe and flavor. The atmosphere is very sophisticated and I really love that the owner choose to avoid plastic, everywhere! I will come back for sure!
