Where to start? Gianni is the most fabulous host and his wife is lovely. As soon as we walked in we were mesmerized by the warm welcome and it lasted throughout the experience. The attention to detail here is fabulous, with phones being put in little rectangular dishes to stop them from any possible damage were a spillage to occur... More

I took my husband to be out on a date night here. We ate starters (garlic bread with mozzarella and pesto) and pasta ragú and carbonara. Best pasta we have ever had! Seriously, the food was amazing. The owners are great hosts. Made us feel comfortable and welcomed. Great value for your money. 17 years since opening and you can... More

I went to this quaint little restaurant last night with a girlfriend & both our daughters (13 & 7). The restaurant itself is gorgeous, something out of the box. My friend had eaten here before & loved it. We were going to old Phuket town market after dinner so it made sense to go to this little restaurant which was... More

While it can be a little hard to find on a rainy evening, the restaurant was still packed and having a reservation is probably the wise thing to do. Everything we ordered was very well done and the owners were always around to make sure we were enjoying our dinner.

This one is a small Italian restaurant, more like family restaurant. They have very few tables, like 5-6, so you'd better book a table before going there! Their foods are amazing! I ordered lamb chop for a steak, my boyfriend had some meat (not sure which part of the meat) but the taste was great. But that's not my point!... More

I've been eating here occasionally for 10 years. I judge the taste and texture of any other Italian food dish by the standard and flavour of the food here. The host Gianni and his lovely Thai wife make you feel so welcome and I love the display he makes when decanting your wine. There are only a handful of tables... More

I highly recommend La Gaetana for a full Italian dinner experience. Great spot for special occasions and if you want to impress this restaurant won't let you down. The hosts/owners are fully passionate and all items on the menu are well thought out. TIP: Be sure to book in advance by a couple days, as it's a small and popular... More

I retuned to La Gaetana after a time away of about 7 years. Guess what? nothing has changed and thankfully so. We arrived about 30min lates of our reservation time and were still met with huge smiles from Ginna and his lovely wife. The service here is so personal and you can see that after 17 years running they have... More

Super small restaurant in hidden location in the Phuket with only 6 -7 table. Ginna , owner-Italian, his wife and staffs are amazing service. recommend for special day or taste the home made Italian food and good wine. the food is quite expensive but worth for any dollar if you compared on their food quality
