My girlfriend Chin and I were traveling around on Koh Samui and decided to switch to Italian food for a day. The good reviews on Da Gio' brought us to this place and they were all right! Great food, great service and a relaxed atmosphere. Absolutely worthwhile to swing by for an enjoyable time and culinary experience. Ron.

We followed tripadvisor ratings to find this restaurant, which is a little way up a side road from the beach and centre of Lamai - not disappointed, as the manager was sitting out front and welcomed us in a very friendly way, and the food was pretty damn good. Not the cheapest in Lamai but not silly prices either. It's not a flash place, no A/C or fancy decorations, but you get the feeling he takes some pride in the food. Service from the waitresses very good also. Recommended.

Of the five nights we had on Koh Samui, we chose to eat here twice. Led by the high rating this restaurant had on tripadvisor, we made our way to this restaurant. The restaurant looks more like a cafe and even had large posters up advertising all manner of burgers and chips, but do not let this deceive you or put you off! The food is excellent, really delicious and prepared with a lot of love. The pasta is homemade and although I did not check, I would put money on the fact that the house wine is also homemade. We sampled a variety of pasta and pizza dishes and were really pleased with each dish.

The food and wine reminded us of the dishes we ate in Rome (in the more rustic, authentic restaurants in the residential neighbourhoods rather than those situated near the tourist attractions). The owner is incredibly passionate about the food he produces and comes out a few minutes after each dish is served to check that everything is to your liking. Although we never had anything but praise for the dishes, we got the impression that if you were dissatisfied with a dish, he would take great care to rectify this.

After each of the meals we were treated to limoncello and at the end of our last meal there, we were provided with complimentary homemade strawberry gelatos which were wonderful.

The food, wine and the hospitality are second to none and we only wish that this restaurant was round the corner from where we live as we would be in there all the time!

I went here when it was quiet, so the owner took time to chat to me and explain the menu.
The food is all made in house and is great. I particularly enjoyed the tagliatelle, pieadina and fritto misto.
Excellent value for money, I recommend grappa after dinner.
Big thanks to the family who run it for their excellent service, I'd definitely return!
Da Gio' is the place to go!!!
