The first time we attended, we ordered garlic bread, muscles, Parma ham and fish cakes to start between four of us. All of them were delicious although we all felt the Parma ham with melon was our favourite. For mains, we opted for pesto pasta, cannelloni, lobster risotto and fillet steak. All were cooked to perfection and really tasty too. For dessert, we opted to for the chocolate cakes and panna cotta - they too were tasty but we just couldn’t finish them.

The staff were delightful and genuinely looked happy to help us. Nothing was any trouble and they went out of their way for us too, even offering limoncello as a digestivo! We enjoyed this place so much that we opted to spend our final night here too.

I went for bruschetta and my partner for muscles. For mains, I went for lasagne and my partner, who loved the fillet steak that much from our first visit, opted for it again. I’m not a fan of steak but he said it was delicious and cooked exactly how he wanted - taken from someone who loves steak, I can safely say that it must have been good.

My only downside to this was that the portions were that generous that I genuinely couldn’t order dessert :( I don’t think I could have fitted anymore in!

If we’re ever back in Samui, this will be a definite stop for us; one we will be recommending to any friends or family that happen to visit!

  Great food. Had the garlic bread; lasagne and shared a ceaser salad with the other half. All food tasted fresh and was well presented. Slightly over priced

    review rating 5  Best pizza I’ve had in a very long time, and owner was Italian!! Thin, deliciously baked crust and high quality ingredients. Also tried a really nice chocolate brownie with melted chocolate and vanilla ice cream. Will come back again if I’m back in Samui!

    review rating 5  Beyond my expectations! The pizza dough quality was a standout in taste and texture, perfectly cooked. The handmade ravioli was great too. Cappuccino was super frothy and smooth. Friendly staff and upscale interior with good price performance. The best option for Italian this side of Samui.

Pizzas are great. Cooked in a wood fire oven, one of the est we've found on the island. Good selection of wine too and staff are really friendly and helpful too. One of our most visited restaurants on the island.
