A great looking place if you ignore the entrance area. Inside is very impressive and romantic. The service was good and the owner came over to say hello which was nice. He's been there for many years. Food excellent and drinks good to. Mainly expensive but still good value.

This dimly lit place felt very off inside and was not easy to see or read the menu, service was a bit slow but alas i was eventually served, the prices where a bit high for food and drink, and the staff did not have any recommendations, when i asked i was answered with "I don't know". I ordered a... More

One the reviews on TA plus when we walked past the other night the aroma of the food was great. This restaurant has been here for many years but they have only recently opened a new... More

What a hidden gem! We have been travelling to Koh Samui for many years and only now have we discovered this fabulous restaurant located on the main strip of chewang. Ambiance was great, food was fabulous and the friendly staff helped keep our young children amused (which helps us enjoy our meals!!). The owner Carlo even came out to personally... More

What a place to eat... colourful lighting set in a dark room with Chill background music creates the perfect ambience for an evening meal. You have to be careful when your looking for this place, it's very easy to miss even though you may have walked past it a few times! The food was amazing, and the pizza tasted exactly... More

The menu authentic as it gets. Felt like my childhood going to grandma's every Sunday. Went overboard on appetizers because we just couldn't make up our... More
