“Cheap Pizza!”
Reviewed 17 June 2013

My wife and I have eaten here twice already as we LOVE pizza and these guys offer 20+ varieties for $150 bhat even = $5 USD. It is located right in downtown Thongsala, has several TV's with Western viewing, and is run by an Italian. Beers $80 bhat, wine $120 bhat, and also a bunch of fresh pasta dishes for $150 bhat as well. Recommended for sure

“Would never go back”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

Pizza was undercooked so the base was still doey in the centre. I ordered a Hawaii with chicken and it was bland & flavourless. My friend had a spaghetti carbonara and I could tell immediately just looking at it, that it was far from authentic Italian carbonara. She says it was ok, but had to add salt and pepper to it for flavour. We did have a bruschetta to start, which was actually yummy, but it wasn't quite a save for this dining experience. Service was a below average and the whole experience was generally poor.

“Average pizza, a bit pricey for the area”
Reviewed 8 June 2013

The pizza was fine. The crust was crispy, but there needed to be more toppings. 1 approximately 9 inch pizza was 149 baht. There were fans (no a/c) and TVs. Service was fair.

“DO NOT EAT HERE...”
Reviewed 10 April 2013

We ordered a pizza bolognaise as a starter to share, and as a main coarse ricotta ravioli and spaghetti carbonara.
The pizza was not how you would expect a pizza in an italian restaurant.. it was really disappointing and i dont know how italian people can review this with 5 stars!
The ravioli was a portion fit for a small child....it was ridiculous, after around 10 minutes of waiting we recieved our spaghetti carbonara, i was really hungry so i ate the first half than i gave second half to my girlfriend who (lucky for her) checked the food. We found a large black hair in the pasta, I seen the THAI chef and she was covered in swett, to know i was eating a meal with her hair in it makes me feel sick.My gf took the plate back and she seen the kitchen which looked disgusting.We ordered drinks at the start and only recieved one of them,also no one took care of us as far as service goes. I dont understand why so many italians on here have rated this food so high i smell fake reviews..

“Amazing pizza!”
Reviewed 16 March 2013

Such a great find! We ordered one pizza and it was so good we ordered another and stayed for two hours. Owner was friendly and very helpful in helping us plan/sort our accommodation. Place was clean and atmosphere good. I found the service prompt but there was only a handful of customers in at the time.
