We went to the place twice and it was amazing! The pizza is really good and the staff is friendly and professional. Also the owner really cares about you, limoncello included. Don't miss it and don't let the emptiness fool you. If you like real Italian food this is the place to be!

When we got here on a Monday night the restaurant was completely empty. So the service was quick and friendly, even the manager came by to have chat. The prices are the same as most Italian restaurants you can find at Patong Beach, but I was not much impressed with my dish. I have to say the portion was big... More

Good silent location. Interior design is a bit on the dull side but it is largely compensate by the delicious food. Staff is friendly and extremely professional.

Quiet location off the main drag therefore easy to overlook. But well worth a visit. Food including home made pasta was excellent. Owner has created a more upmarket ambience but kept reasonable prices. Menu is extensive Italian and Thai fare. Staff friendly and efficient.

If this restaurant was not recommended to us by friends staying just around the corner, we would have missed out, which would have been sad. Andrea is the owner and a very nice gentleman who runs a restaurant with white table cloths. The staff are friendly and very efficient. The menu is extensive and in my opinion very reasonably priced,... More

Went for dinner with family and friends. The place was very quiet but the food and service were excellent. Prices were reasonable by Patong's standards. Can't understand why it's not busier. Possibly location - it's on the Soi just past the Deevana Plaza Hotel which isn't clear on Trip Advisor. Recommended.

The pizza was delicious, their bread is awesome. I had the seafood linguine and they were delicious. The spaghetti carbonate was a bit disappointing as the sauce looked like scrabbled eggs. Not smooth. Otherwise I would have rated this higher
