Really enjoyed the service provided and the pizzas we had were also great This place has a good value for money ratio I would say this is the best pizza I had in Koh Samui, but be aware I only had pizza in one other place...

We found this place highly recommended and after a great meal we see why. Pizza was great, as I prefer the European style that I can't get in the States. My wife had homemade ravioli that were great (and you could tell the pasta was homemade). The staff was very friendly and atmosphere nice. It is on the main road... More

Perfect service, lovely people, very high quality food. They even offer Gluten free Pasta. If you reserve in advance you also get gluten free pizza. You feel like in Italy!

We walked up the road last night from our hotel, the Fairhouse Beach Resort after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. The restaurant is to the left on the opposite side of the road just a wee bit past 7 Eleven. We were a bit worried when we arrived and we were the only customers there. My rule of thumb in... More

Great pizza in Chaweng Noi area. Restaurant is simple and all outside area, hence no aircon, could be a bit hot if you are a bit sunburnt. It has a quite comprehensive menu and reasonable prices. We only tried the pizza and it was really good. It is only a short stroll from New Star resort on the main road.

The pizzas reminded me of the ones I had in Rome. They are wood fired with thin bases. The sauce tasted like an old family recipe. The atmosphere was pleasant and a great mix of Thai and Italian styles. The owner is a lovely Italian guy and his family came for dinner when we were there which really brought in... More

We found out about this place by chance. it's a pretty standard looking place, slightly set back from the street with a little bit of green in front. Nice and airy and tables are well spaced. We tried both the pizza and the pasta, while the pasta is good the pizza is mighty impressive. Just the right amount of topping... More

So nice Italian restaurant in Chaweng. Hard to find from the main road, but it is so nice. Excellent service and superb menu. The staff is excellent. I recommend this one at Koh Samui to all Italian food lovers.
