One the best restaurant experience in Phuket . First night we've been surprised with the salads and pastas, very yummy, generous portion. We went back and on second night I tried their crab ravioli, a dish to remember for very long time.

Pasta with seafood was disgusting! Frozen shrimps and calamari. Tasted really cheap! But it will cost you. Tagliata was good though. I am Italian. I won't go back for sure.

Best Italian restaurant in Phuket and less expensive than the other options at Le Meridien. Apparently the chef comes from Italy, and the service is very friendly. Nice presentation of food, good salads and desserts.

We ate here last night, the pizzas were amazing and the pasta dish we ordered (tagliatelle) was fabulous. Both staff and the chef were very attentive and pleasant. Will definitely be back and would recommend!

A fine good looking resteaurant where you can have a taste of real European dishes. I had a spaghetti seafood that took me straight to the coast of Italy. The seafood was fresh and the spaghetti had the right amount of spices to make the flavours come out in a delightfull combination.

Excellent food and service. Definitely one of our most favourite restaurants in Phuket. The mushroom fettuccine dish cooked in front of your table is awesome
