It all started a few years back with an Italian Chef. The Italian food then was great, service was far above average, prices on the high side, but well justified. Today, the Chef is gone, service is below average and the prices have increased.... On our last visit, they got the order wrong (pork instead of fish..... not the best... More

My husband and I decided to have our wedding anniversary dinner here as we were staying at the hotel (Sala Lanna). The food was lovely but the service was a standout and was excellent. They even arranged a special 'Happy Anniversary' dessert for us. It is definitely not cheap by Thai standards but was worth the cost as we really... More

Excellent food, Italian based with Thai influence. Bit more chilly. Great fusion. Great location on Ping river bank. Not cheap but worth it. Speciality prawns with red curry is super. Spicy and fresh.

Lacked character with horrible nightclub continuous music/beat. Food very average maybe because it was empty. Menu very limited and the "special" was a Seafood Pizza ! Staff attentive Location is nice and hotel probably good but eat elsewhere

We stayed at the Sala Lanna and used the Italia restaurant for dinner. As vegetarians, we found that the Thai menu was not as accommodating to what we eat as those in other Sala resorts. In any case, Chang Mai has numerous vegetarian restaurants. We ate the vegetarian Italian food on offer and found it very good. We find Italian... More
