“A taste of authentic Italy in the heart of Kamala”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

Wow what a little gem! After 2 weeks in country we were looking for something 'different' and boy did we find it! We stumbled upon the Talanuri just by chance (while shopping), and noted it was owner run. We returned later in the day to taste the best Italian food we've had in a long time... Freshly made pasta cooked to perfection (try the ravioli!), in a very comfortable, almost homely setting (there are just 5 tables), served by the owner himself. And all at a very reasonable cost. This place is perfect for anyone looking for some excellent non Thai home cooking in a totally unpretentious setting.

“great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

Had dinner there last night as a family of 5.
Pasta was fresh and tasted like it was from Italy.
Good way to test the food is to see how good their gnocci is....well it certainly past the test. It was excellent.
Pizza was absolutely brilliant and the owner was a very polite gentle man.
Only hiccup was finding it as address is wrong.
get to the tsunami monument and facing the beach it is about 200-300 meters to your right across from a fancy spa treatment place.

“Great food but eccentric ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

Food was great - home made pasta - gnocchi, ravioli and tagliatelle. My Daughter had the pizza margherita and it was sensational. In low season it appears it's just the owner and his chef so be prepared for some fawlty towers moments but the food is well worth the wait.

“Amazing food and Nice owner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014 via mobile

We went to this place several times and we loved the food! The chef is Italian and makes his food with fresh ingredients! The Tagliatella is amazing. :)

The location on Tripadvisor map is not correct! The right location is: 85/3 moo 3 Rim Road RD in Kamala, Phuket!

“Awesome home made pasta. Great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

It's always refreshing to have a great Italian meal overseas especially in Asia. The ravioli which is made in house is as good as my nonna makes and the pizza is great!! All the seafood used on the pizza was very fresh. I am hard to please but found this place hard to beat. A lot of restaurants shut in low season but this place still remains open which is good. Miller grazie Massimo I will be back to try the tiramisu and gnocchi....
