This experience really took me back to my time in Italy....it was so good we went back twice! It was empty the times we went but don't let that put you off.

We had the foccacia to share for starters and then a pasta dish each. The foccacia is obviously home made and was divine! So fresh. The ravioli with truffle is presented beautifully and tasted amazing.

The wine is a reasonable price for a bottle in Thailand at 700 baht. They have nice little touches that make the dining experience extra special like little canapes to try and some home made cakes to take home at the end.

The owners are a daughter and father and it was nice to chat to her and find out their family history. It's obvious her father is very talented and makes good quality Italian food. By far the best Italian food we have had in Thailand. You must try it if you are in Phuket Town.

The food is prepared by an Italian chef and is excellent.

There are lots of nice extras and touches. It is "real" Italian from the centre of Italy - kinda like tuscany - and is not a local or fusioned version.

Mixed antipasta was interesting, varied and good; roast pork very tasty and deserts all pretty delicious.

The restaurant is at the Talang road end of Phuket road and parking is difficult, but worth the effort or the walk.

Prices are medium to medium high, but represent value for money for lovers of very good and /or "real" Italian food.

In short test Italian food I have had in Thailand, so highly recommended

Came here on a Monday night with my gf.No one else in the restaurant..and i dont know why now!!We had the most amazing meal.The starter of foccaiai with ham and buffalo mozzeralla was smile inducing as was my ridiculously good lasagne for main.I tried to eat as slow as i could to enjoy it.My gf had ravioli truffle.Again,she enjoyed it so much.We enjoyed the food so much that 2 bottles of red were easily sunk.We laughed and joked with the Italian owners about how good the food was and that we felt we were back in Italy.They really take a lot of pride about their food and the business and the father cooking is obviously an amazing chef.We will most definitley be returning here very soon!This place deserves to do so well due to its quality of food.It hasnt been open long..so go to this unknown gem quick and enjoy!If you know your Italian...i promise this IS the place to go in ALL of Thailand.Thank you for a great evening :)

Finally a truly Italian restaurant in town, not yet spoiled by the tourist crowd as many others, and family driven. It means high quality ingredients and definitely great taste. I especially enjoyed the fantastic homemade ravioli. The cookies gift bag is a real touch of quality and Italian warmth. Price in line with the quality of food, so not the cheapest, but 100% worth the experience. In my opinion the atmosphere could be improved with some soft music.
