“Delicious Italian and great service”
Reviewed 27 March 2014 via mobile

Amazing Italian food at very reasonable prices! The service was quick and staff were very friendly.

The location is a bit off the main strip of Chaweng beach but worth the trip.

Pizza's were the best that I have had in awhile - including back in Aus!

Would highly recommend.

“Great Italian food.”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

I really enjoyed the unpretentious familiar treatment received on arrival. Food was served promptly and in a timely fashion. Pasta & Pizza were just one of the best on the Island. Highly recommended.

“Best Italian Restaurant on Samui”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

As we discovered this great restaurant, we went there four consecutive evenings. The food was very good, the server fast and competent, and very friendly. Also the owners are very nice. The pasta is handmade by themselves, and you taste it. They have a very good vine selction. Prices a re good for the quality you get. For me as italian it is one of the best restaurants you can eat.

“Island Italian”
Reviewed 9 February 2014 via mobile

A little bit difficult for us to spot, this Italian run Italian Restaurant is a place you should stop for late lunch or dinner. I met one of the owners who was very accommodating as was the Thai, English speaking Server. Consider starting as I did with the Brochette with mozzarella cheese, different flavors with baby tomatoes. Always on the table is olive oil soaking with peppers to add spice to the experience.
Since the owner specializes in homemade pasta, I chose to design my own linguini with a green pesto and shrimp, sprinkled with fresh grated cheese. The dish was scrumptious. All this was swished with a half of a carafe of Italian wine. Since I am a foodie, I couldn't resist the homemade Tiramisu. The lightest, creamiest ever and just the right size to cap of the night. Tell your cab driver to take you to the Imperial Resort and you will find La Lanterna across the street and a few yards down. Tell the owner you read this review. You will be satisfied at this Chaweng Noi spot.
