RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 31 January 2017 via mobile

Food and service were really good! We just had a fantastic family dinner here and we all agreed that one of our best Italian dining experiences could be here in Chiang Rai. First, it was the pizza. It was crispy and adequately seasoned: not too much nor little. Then it was the bolognese spaghetti. The sauce smelled really good. We... More

Italian food made by Thai cooks who think it's OK to put Ketchup on pasta dishes, not that they do it at the restaurant, but when they go out to eat at the pizza place in town. Nice little restaurant in a small corner near the pool. Pricey for what you get, when you consider how cheap Thai food is.... More

Dear talbot983, Greetings! The resort staff and I feel lucky to work at a place so ideally located on the river banks of River Kok. I hope that you managed to enjoy the view in the late afternoon when the sun is about to set. As you have correctly pointed out, no ketchup is used in any of our dishes.... More

The food was pretty good but the service was nonexistent. We had to wait for drinks to order and it took about 1/2 hr to get our food.

Description
WOOD FIRED FROM THE HEART FAVOLA, a specialty Italian restaurant by the Kok River, is the ultimate riverside dining destination in Chiang Rai for the "lazy gourmet" in a contemporary country scene, with breathtaking views of the Kok River and surrounding Mountains either day or evening. The cuisine in Favola is more of a journey rather than a meal period reflecting its name which means "fable or story" in English, where simplistic Italian flavours are presented from our signature wood fired oven and char-grill along with an array other Authentic Italian favourites.
