I'm a Head Chef and you cannot get anything fresher than this, everything pure homemade, manager and chef are husband and wife with 30+ years experience, restaurants in France, Courmayeur with VIP costumers (es Peter Gabriel) and Gambero Rosso awards! Top quality and service! BEST EVER! Went there twice, will love to come back even a third time!

Really worth a visit. Everything was very good. Husband and wife and friendly Thai staff. Nice atmosphere, homey. We had a vegetarian soufflé kind of thing, as a starter, excellent. Then gnocchi with a meat sauce. Had to finish all of the gnocchi, it was so good. Then a really nice fish filet, simply cooked with some rosemary, excellent also.... More

Nice restaurant, ambience and host but felt that despite the great reviews, the food was just alright. I thought my bolognese was ok but the portion size was very small. Girlfriend described the carbonara as bland, although the brushetta to start was good. Perhaps as backpackers we should have stuck to cheaper places elsewhere but every now and then we... More

This restaurant has the best Italian food I have eaten. The cooking is authentic Italian and if you take the recommendations you will not be disappointed. The spinach ravioli is the best pasta I have eaten anywhere in the world. The restaurant is in a quiet part of town and the tables are not packed in too tightly. We ate... More

This restaurant (just past Taco Shack and Big Yellow House) is absolutely fantastic, and if you're on Koh Tao you really must go. The standard of cooking is very, very high - a lot of it would beat anything I have eaten back home (London) or elsewhere. Definite highlights are the ceviche, the courgette flan and spinach ravioli, which is... More

This place serves very basic and not sophisticated Italian food, portions are tiny, service is very slow, took them 45 minutes to serve the main dish after finishing the first dish, prices are inflated.

Went for dinner here for our last night in Ko Tao. Menu is in Italian and the man just reads it out to you in English. By the time he walks away you've forgotten what everything is. We are not sea food lovers and therefore we felt there wasn't much choice for us. I got bruschetta to start and We... More

Italian owners make everything fresh. Is a bit out of town but well worth the trip. Worthy of its #1 ranking.

The food was nice but nothing special. We ordered the Bruschetta, which was really good and the Spaghetti carbonara was average. Not a lot of cruelty free options on the menu unfortunately.
