I am Italian and I am very exigent with food,especially when it comes to Italian food. I ordered a vegetarian pizza and it was far beyond my expectations: Extremely good mass, with very high quality tomato sauce and vegetables. It was really great. My wife ordered spaghetti all'arrabbiata, which despite being written with a wrong spelling on the menù, they... More

Not the most adventurous of choices from me, I chose an American breakfast but it was freshly cooked and plenty of it. My husband had the fish and chips as wanted s change from noodles. Service was great... More

The staff here are the right level of attentive and unobtrusive. The food is great quality; great salads, pizzas and sandwiches. All the ingredients are well chosen, fresh and very high quality. There prices are very reasonable too. Highly recommended.

Beans in a small jar about a tablespoon sized, bacon is just fried fat, eggs are cold. Waste of my money

I think the success of this pizzeria is because it's close to the pier . The food is very common , not so tasty and it's only at the level of a pizzeria , nothing gastronomic but with astronomic prize ! The design of this restaurant is also a kind of ugly . The owner is very intrusive !

Meals were good and the menu had a large selection. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We had the ravioli and and the beef skewer which were both yummy. There was so much to choose from, this would be a good restaurant for children and those wanting different cuisines.

After a week outside Italy, we were into pizza mood. We decided to give a try to this place to share a pizza and eventually have a meal. Well, the pizza wasn't good the standard we are used to, but honestly we didn't expect much more. We also decided to eat a steak (beef and tuna) and they were excellent.... More

A friend booked a day trip to this island. About 1 hour and 40 minutes from Koh Samui. We thought it would be a great and quite tropical island. Did we get a shock. Full of tourists, the locals try rip you off and it's so dirty and the smell just disgusting. Given my return ferry wasn't until 3 pm... More
