We visited this restaurant based on the rave reviews on TA for the pizzas. All started out well when we read signs on the wall saying the secret to their highly popular pizzas is use of a real wood fired oven, and a 'special sauce' that was a secret. That set high expectations. Our group shared 3 pizzas, and we all agreed that the pizzas were very average indeed. Minimalist with very few toppings, they were not tasty at all.

We also ordered a Salmon pasta, and that was better than the pizza, however certainly not good enough to make us want to return or to give this restaurant a better score, as it does not deserve the reviews it is receiving in our opinion

Thank you for your review and visit. I believe getting 3-star score from people who didn't like our pizzas is still good achievement.
You are true - we do minimalist toppings - italian style pizzas with thin crispy crust. We bake in stone oven which we build specially for our place.
Pizza powder and sauce recipes are secret - we not tell recipes to anyway until they ask. But you should understand every pizza restaurant will have their own recipe of powder and until we have more positive reviews and impressions from customers we would keep it same. Sorry if it is not in your taste but I am happy you liked salmon pasta - it is my favorite dish.

Situated right next to our hotel, this restaurant has been one of our favourites! We have eaten here several times and they have the best pizza. The decor of the restaurant is very good..classy with soft music. Simply the best

If you want a break from the Thai curries for a night then this restaurant is perfect. A little piece of italy in Thailand - wood fired oven cooks the pizzas just beautifully. We always go to this Restaurant when we come to Kata Beach

We are really recommend this place to everyone, the margarita pizza is very good, they have nice thai food too, the mojito is our favourite. Unfortunately is a bit hidden, we found this accidentally.

My son just loved the pizza here. As I am more of a thai food person when in Thailand, we often bought a take-away for him. Very nice ambiance.
