“Great pizza and house wine!”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

My friends and I loved this small Italian restaurant. The pizza was delicious - great thin crust, fresh ingredients, LARGE portions - and the owner was extremely attentive and friendly. The house wine was great and priced right. The owner discussed his interest in wine and how he felt it was such an important part of the experience to get right, which he did! We will absolutely recommend this to anyone that wants a break from Thai food for a night.

“Great Pizza!”
Reviewed 9 February 2012

Big and delicious home made pizza! Very convenient that you can choose ingredients by yourself! Very good home red wine!
Prices are of medium level, quality of food is very high!
It could be nice to come here for a dinner with family or friends.

“One of the best values in Thailand, real italian food in the heart of Chiang Mai”
Reviewed 9 February 2012

Perfectly located at the Tha Pae gate, on Khotchasarn road, this newish restaurant offers, in my view, one of the best dining values, not only in Chiang Mai, but in Thailand. The food is excellent, with real italian authentic taste and ingredients. The pizza is fantastic. You can either order one individual pizza or easily share the large one with two (or three, if not too hungry) other people. The house wine is good and very inexpensive compared to other similar restaurants, in CM or any other locations we visited in TH. The portions are generous, prepared with genuine ingredients. Try the Cesar salad. Excellent preparation and, worth mentioning, presentation. The service is pleasant, relaxed, and the manager (and not the owner as stated in one of the recently posted reviews) is extremely kind and, being an experienced professional, attentive to his customers. A fabulousely prepared pasta, a wonderfully presented pork chop, a huge mixed salad with lots of fresh ingredients and a liter of very decent house wine (italian Merlot) for approx Thb 700. The large pizza is between 340 to 450 baht and the small pizzas start at 80 baht. You then add your ingredients for some additional small amounts. So, If you travel to Chiang Mai, do not miss the Pizza e Vino restaurant.

“More than pizza!”
Reviewed 8 February 2012

We visited Pizza e Vino on the recommendation of my brother-in-law, who lives in Chiang Mai for eight months of every year, and we thought it was the best among several outstanding restaurants in Thailand.
Although previous reviewers have raved about the pizza, we had the restaurant's other dishes and loved them. My husband and his brother both had seafood pasta in black (squid) sauce, and I had the sole with lemon sauce. Both dishes were outstanding. My husband and I had a single salad that was big enough for both of us.
I usually order a glass of wine or a quarter carafe if it is available. Pizza e Vina offers a house wine only by the glass or the half liter, but the half liter is so reasonable that it is worth getting. It is also quite good.
We were shocked to read the review criticizing the owner, who we thought was one of the strengths of the restaurant. He was friendly and accommodating, and he obviously enjoyed talking with his customers.
Not only is this restaurant conveniently located right outside the Sunday Market, but the food is fantastic, the owner charming, and the prices unreal: our meal for three people with two beers and a half liter of wine was about $30.

“Excellent in every way”
Reviewed 6 February 2012

I can only agree with the glowing reviews below, the fact that this restaurant only opened 8 months ago and is already rated the best in Chiang Mai should say it all. The meal I had here was excellent and the service professional and courteous. I suspect that it will fast become hard to secure a table at this mid-sized restaurant with an already giant reputation.
