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

A small family restaurant but big on taste and quality. We were a group of 10 and choose a wide selection of the menu. None of us were disappointed. The quality and flavours were excellent. Good choice of appetizers, enters and puddings. Stuffed mushrooms, Sea Bass, Wagyu beef, flambeed crepes and more. If you want a pizza you'll need to... More

The journey to the restaurant was a bit slow as the traffic was backed up. However it was a great evening as the rest was lovely inside and we were welcomed with warm hospitality. Food was all delicious - I had sea bass fillet with veg and sauce - well cooked and tasty.

Never expect we would come across such a hidden gem here in Phuket. The restaurant got limited table, so reservation is required. The owners are very friendly and attentive in recommending everything to us. The food, wine and desserts were beyond expectations. We are definitely coming back here again.

I have eaten in many places in Phuket but although many claim to serve a decent standard of food none come close to achieving Western Standards but Gaetana definitely does. Aside from attention to details and the owner making an effort to be friendly with his customers the food is excellent and I have been to much more expensive places... More

We found this place on Trip Adviser for our last night meal after 2 weeks island hopping - we had eaten in various places from a market stall to back street restaurants and wanted a treat - and boy did we find one! Booked online easily, our table was waiting with a lovely welcome from the owner Gianni upon arrival.... More
