The food at Favola was quite good though not exceptional or impressive in any way; a little too "creative." The chef was very kind and came out to tell us his recommendations. The wine list was extensive but very overpriced - cocktails were nice, though. Perhaps it's biggest flaw is that the atmosphere feels exceptionally cold and un-Italian. Italian food... More

We ate dinner there two weeks ago on a lark. We were tired from jet lag and couldn't get up the energy to leave the Le Meridien. Wow were we surprised! The food was outstanding, and the wine list was comprehensive. We had a wonderful chat with one of the managers while, ordering drinks, as he wanted to know about... More

I was part of a group of seven that descended on Favola late one evening during the Yi Peng Lantern Festival. We were warmly greeted and seated near a window with a great view of the street. The lasagna I ordered was delicious. My friends were equally pleased with the pizza, filet, and pork chop options. The atmosphere was serene... More

If you're after an excellent Italian meal in Chiang Mai this is the place to go. Everything is excellent (I went a few times and tried many dishes), and the prices are very reasonable all things considered. The staff is friendly and welcoming, although they could probably use an extra waiter. If you visit make sure to get up and... More

Had the pleasure to stay at the Meridien for 3 nights exactly the time when they had their Sunday Brunch on every 1st Sunday in the month.

Wow... My favorite Italian restaurant in Asia still knocks it out of the ball park with a home run on wonderful tastes and beautiful food presentation. But, the service has started to dip. It seems the previous Italian manager may have left, and has now been replaced by another westerner "Nicolas". Not sure we're he is from but his service... More

I've been to Italy many times and confess today's dinner at Favola can compete with Italy's best. We had tomatoe soup and mushroom soup and our taste buds told us that the ingredients must have been collected this afternoon. The main course entrees of branzino, chicken and mushroom risotto were absolutely delicious.

A warm, discreet welcome by staff who genuinely want you to enjoy yourself. The decor is modern, tastefully finished and the tables are well-spaced, giving an intimate atmosphere. There's an enormous glass wine cellar in the centre, they'll be delighted if you ask to visit it and the wine-list is encyclopedic, as is the list of rare grappas. I had... More
