“Best pizza on the island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend who lives in Chaloklum. It's run by an Italian guy and all his Italian friends showed up in the evening. The menu is limited to pizza and a handful of other things, but the pizza is where it's at. Thin, crisp crust, multiple cheese varieties, charcuterie toppings, plus wine by the carafe (litre, or half, or glass) and tables on a sandy outdoor terrace. My bf and I are still thinking about the pizza here and we ate it more than a month ago. We also had the lasagne, but could take that or leave it next time. The price was average, the value was excellent considering how delicious everything was.

“Delizioso!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014

Have kept coming back for their amazing pizzas, incredibly delicious fresh pastas, and the atmosphere and good service. Don't miss this gem of an Italian restaurant that overlooks Chaloklum Bay....the owner and chef is from Rimini, Italy and has brought the great taste of Italy to Koh Phangan. Prelibato!!

“Great cannelloni in Koh Phangan”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2013

This authentic Italian restaurant comes highly recommended in travel guidebook and by foreigners living on Koh Phangan so we went to sample the fare. The cannelloni was fantastic! The pizza was average though: a thin base which was great but the toppings- we had the 4 seasons with ham, mushrooms, olives, peppers and - the ingredients seems cheap ie not the best quality ham or olives and the presentation wasn't great. We liked the vibe though- a very basic interior and a friendly Italian owner. I was hoping he'd play his guitar and sing, but maybe next time.
