Description: Marco,Ristorante Italiano and pizzeria. This is simply the best Italian restaurant in Koh Chang. The restaurant is tucked away at the end of Vj Plaza in Chai Chet. Marco is the perfect host, providing a wide range of authentic Italian food and wines and the warmest possible welcome to 'Little Italy' in Koh Chang. The owner is young, Italian of course, and always prepared to please their customers. Come to 'Little Italy' in Koh Chang and say 'Ciao' to Marco.

Maybe this a good Italian for Thailand, but I doubt so. I would rate it just as a pretty average Italian outlet with outdoor seating (nothing with a nice view, nothing romantic).

The starters were 'ok', the Pizza below par. I just don't like Pizza from a gas- or electric oven - because the taste of the wood-fire is missing. It's like you eat barbecue from an electric grill. Yes, the Pizza was thin, but without the taste of Pizza.

The white wine was served cold, such as the red wine... real italian ;-)

The best was the tiramisu, which was really good.

At the price billed I expected a better quality of food.

During our October break in Koh Chang, we visited this restaurant twice. The place is called 'I Buoni a Nulla' and is run by two Italian chefs (Marco and Jo).
The food is nice and fresh, and our daughters really enjoyed their pasta's and lasagna on both occasions. We were looking for a place to eat one evening, and came to talk to Marco, a friendly guy and a good host. My wife and I were both interested in seafood, and he recommended to order this a day before (so that he could get fresh supplies).
Indeed, when we returned for dinner the next day, our order (carpaccio of seabass, filet of seabass and the seafood pasta) was ready and of excellent quality. My fish was fresh and very well prepared, and the baked potatoes that came as a side dish were one of the best I've ever tasted. The tiramisu was also very tasteful, fresh and homemade.
We came back a couple of days later, and noticed that the service was a bit slower because it was quite busy that day. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our food once again.
Can not say anything else than a highly recommendable place in the Chai Chet area of Khlong Prao if you're looking for good Italian fare at a reasonable price.

Are you in for a meal, other than Thai? Do you like Italian food? Then go to Marco & Jo. Its ITALIAN, all the way. No fake: but ITALIAN with ITALIAN chef and service. The food is very good and the atmosphere is as Italian as it can be.

I highly recommend the place.

To find it: Its just opposite the BODIWORK massage clinic.
