“Great Thai food meets Italian warm service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

We doen't our lady Thai evening at Chalita and it Was just perfect. Giancarlo, the italian owner and his daughter are very kind and warm hosts and the food is excellent: we had prawns tempura, steamed mussels,seafood stir fry and barracuda Tom Yum soup and all was superbe at a good price. It was definitely one of our best meals in 6 weeks in Thailand. Highly reccomended!!

“Nice cozy restaurant with very reasonable pricing and good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

I personally like the place and food.A cozy nice little place. Nothing fancy sufficent choice on the menu. We were happy with the thai dishes. good taste,very good pricing. The boss is very friendly.we took a taxi to find the place suggested by trip advisor and call the restaurant to get the location correct becos the driver do not know where is it. Thou it cost more using my oversea phone its well worth it.
We were greedy we order 3 thai dishes and 1 fish steak .choices in the restautant was limited but good enough. Portion is fresh and generous as mention on the website. The thai food was to our delight. We were hoping to have oyster but they do not have.Drinks were reasonably priced.i had a few glasses. Bill do not have service charge and taxes. So we decided to tip it as well. 2 of us spent 1k baht . unfortunately they do not open on sun else i would like to go back before the end of my trip again.we have tried belini, aonong restaurant and jenna fine bistro.im happy to have found this gem but had to pay for 1200 baht to and fro for transport to find this gem .i dont mind lazing w my drinks there too....after food.The Boss is very nice and friendly. Will certainly comr back if only we founf the place earlier part of our trip.

Thank Joseph N

“A little gem in the side heart of Krabi town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

Great food, and an equally good atmosphere. Small place owned by local Chalita and her Italian husband Giancarlo. The pizza is of course Italian quality, and Chalita's local dishes are great. As I said, its small with an inside area, and open French doors to the small outdoor patio. Not quite in the center of town, but in a very hip little area brewing along the center.

“Good food and people”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

Chalita is a cute little restaurant in Krabi town. If you stay at Pak-up hostel, Chalita is literally right across the street so that's convenient. We went back every day for lunch and dinner (not open for breakfast) and it was consistently good, clean and had decent wine!
The owner is also very nice. German I believe. Once we forgot our water (still sealed) and went back the next day he had refrigerated it and given it back to us. Super nice. Although not a huge fan of Krabi town, I would definitely recommend Chalita Cafe and Restaurant.
