Me and my girlfriend been there three days in a row. Italian food like Pizza and Spaghetti are very delicious. We also like the Thai food and the Cocktails there. The price is fair, the tables offers a nice view (especially at sunset) and the service is very good. 👍

The food was ok, we tried pizza and fried rice. They served coffee without any sugar. Capuchino was good. The portions are quite small for these prices. The location is good though

I am a regular here. I love the pizza and have had very nice times with the pumpkin pasta dish. The ambience and setting is lovely and the staff are very sweet. Great beach side restaurant with very good, thin crust pizza at reasonable price. Couldn't ask for much more!

I ate better pizza in local thai places for half the price. Service was slow and the boss lady was kind of annoying because she was constantly bothering every table with asking how everything was. Claiming to be a real italian place but it is nothing near this. Never coming back. Wifi is good tho.

The Restaurent is nice located directly at the beach and offered really good pasta but the dishes are between 190-300 baht per pasta and pizza . Furthermore , they also serve glutenfree pasta and make it in a separate pot. They advertise with Italian coffee however , the cappuchino we had didn't taste good . Overall , I would recommend...

Food was ok, perhaps a bit pricey for what it was. They used a bit too much oil in some of the dishes. However my wife loved their espresso martini and we stopped a couple of times just for a cocktail

I can't speak highly enough of the food and the service. The ambience on the beach is very tropical and relaxed. Definitely worth a visit - the gnocchi was sensational

Food was good, pastas are exactly how you'd expect. I can say best pasta on the island. But shame that they do not accept credit cards, I didn't have currency exchanged, and they charged extra % for card payment. Not a happy experience overall.
