This is a small place tucked away on a quiet backstreet and really worth the effort to find it. The homemade Italian food is delicious -- prepared with the freshest ingredients imaginable. There are only a handful of Tables and a small selection of dishes but those we had (the Secret special pasta and the vegetarian lasagne) were simply perfect.... More

The guy sitting on the table across from me also ordered another--it's really just that good. The owner is incredibly friendly and the... More

Been here two nights in a row. The owner is lovely and you can see they make the food fresh. So it does take a little bit longer. First night we had the lasagne, bruschetta and red wine. The food was hot and tasted beautiful. The next night we had a plain/tuna salad with the tomato and basil bruschetta, and... More

First impressions were that it was a little small and poky and not too different from other restaurants in the area. However, once you sit down, your whole perspective changes. With attentive service, delicious food and the main man willing to give cooking tips if asked. On that note, we both saw and heard his passion for food. He genuinely... More

That is a small comfortable Restaurant, and gives you some Italian flair. The boss is around and takes care about your belongings. Food was excellent, and he has also some nice Tiramisu. Will definetely come here again when I'm back in Chiang Mai

Located right in the centre of Chiang Mai's charming old town, this beautiful little Italian restaurant is a real find. Run expertly by the spirited and charismatic Simone, who cooks all of the authentic Italian food, makes his guests feel truly welcome and plays excellent Balearic tunes on funky turn tables ... You will want to return again and again.... More
