“Not an exciting experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

A typical restaurant in a first class hotel; predictable, reliable but without soul and excitement. Good service. But the lack of of a passionate chef ( and owner) makes it a rather boring experience.

“Good Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

Ate at the on site Italian at the Dusit Thani Laguna in Phuket. Had to send main dish back as it was 'tepid' at best, the returned dish was finally okay, the pizza we also ordered was superb. Good service, good food just over priced as is everything on site. Wine was ridiculous price so steer clear. Worth while but with a family or children you are better of heading into town- shame the hotel wants to price itself out of the local market-or should I say take advantage of its audience !!!!

“Overrated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2013 via mobile

This restaurant was recommended to us by the concierge at our hotel when we were looking for Italian food in Laguna, Phuket. We made a reservation and when we arrived at the venue, a tall gentleman who appeared to be the manager growled at us rudely and loudly asked us if we had reservations.

Once we were seated, we ordered a Ravioli, a Risotto Veg dish and a pizza. All the meals were completely underwhelming. The veg in the Risotto was hard and uncooked and the pizza was very average. I have eaten hundreds of better Italian meals in my life and the service in this restaurant left a lot to be desired.
