“Small but very good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013

This is a small restaurant (about 5 tables) where the owner, manager, cook, and waiter are all the same person. He has a printed menu, but it is best to ignore the menu and ask him what is fresh for the day. He shops for fresh food and makes fresh pasta daily. He is very informal, sometimes waiting on tables with sandals, cutoffs, a tank-top, and a cigarette, and this bothers some people. But I have eaten there about 6 times over a period of 2 years, and his food is consistently very good. You can sit inside where it's quiet or outside at the edge of the street where you can watch people go by. If you want some company and it's not busy, he'll be happy to sit and chat with you. It's within easy walking distance of the beach and the main shopping area of Kamala.

“Authentic Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2013

Whilst on Holiday in Phuket, we fancied Italian for a change from the great local Thai cuisine, then chose this restaurant from the TA reviews and decided to head there for dinner where we were warmly welcomed by the owner and chef Massimo who was a wonderful host and recommended several dishes that he had made fresh himself that day, we had the antipasti of cold cuts and cheese followed by a Gnocchi with gorgonzola sauce, a ravioli with butter sauce and a pasta Neapolitan which were all superb washed down with the house white by the glass, we enjoyed the experience so much we visited again a couple of days later and had homemade pasta bolognese and ravioli again washed down with the house white which was excellent. In short great food done with passion from a great host in a humble setting.

“Good Food, Great Owner/Chef, Near the Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

I live in Kamala and have eaten here 3-4 times. The Italian food has been consistently good. The Owner/Chef is always there. Usually taking your order and then cooking your food. Ask him what pasta he has made fresh for the day. The house salad is fresh and large enough for two persons. The house wine is good. The prices are very fair.
