We was recommended this place by another pub owner and was very glad he did. The place was lovely the traditional area and also the very modern and up to date outside room. I order the beef and my friend the lamb and we can honestly say it was the best dinner we've had so far in Thailand. The owner... More

La Taverna is just down one of the alleyways on Chaweng beach road. Not always easy to find(and we go a lot), but well worth looking or asking directions for. There are 2 entrances each door on a different alley. The place is very large inside and separated into 3 areas. The air conditioned smaller authentic Italian, the stunning, very... More

The meal we had here was fine, truth be told I was a little disappointed by it, but it was as good as any other Italian I had in Thailand, so can't rate it too harshly. Service was good too.

Visited after the great reviews for a birthday, greeted by Carlos who was very welcoming. Lots on the menu at reasonable prices. Food was lovely and service was just as good! Anyone visiting Ko Samui should definitely eat here one night! Beautiful!

The best italian restaurant you can find in the World. The kitchen was perfect, excellent service, beautiful location and the owner is very concerned about the welfare of the guests. We can recommend the carpaccio, spaghetti vongole, spaghetti aglio e olio, pizza diavola and last but not least the tiramisu. A restaurant like this you can't find a second time.... More
