This is a place i don't want to write review because i am jealous. I want to hide it in my pocket and do not show it to anybody so nobody will know about this place. This place is a reason one somebody might want to come back on the island and it is like a tourist attraction of the... More

Great food in a lovely setting next to Chaloklum beach. Super friendly owner. Hadn't been here for 5 years but it's just as good and we won't be waiting this long to return. Excellent service.

Both the pizza and pasta here is great, with a beautiful ocean view - great to watch the sunset. Would also recommend trying the coffee and dessert here, the tiramisu was amazing. The staff are very friendly and welcoming.

Really lovely evening was had here. The pizzas were great and the staff were incredibly friendly! A downpour occurred whilst we were eating and the staff made sure everyone was dry instantly...we had to sit closer together at that point but that was awesome as we made friends with another couple of travellers. Again, as I mentioned, great food -... More

This small restaurant looks quite invisible but once youve been there you will always come again. The restaurant offers orginal italian pizza and pasta cooked by the very friendly italian owner. The stuff is friendly and english speaking. Even if the food is a little more pricier than the local thai restaurants (pizza 220bht) its worth it, because servings are... More

We tried Fabio's, we tried Monna Lisa (which was also good, but then they stopped) and then we ended up at Cucina. And we stick to it. Right at the beach, warmly greeted by the Italian owner, thinly crusted pizza, just perfect. There is also home made pasta on the menu, mamma mia! Chaloklum is the coolest authentic village on...

Italian Chef in open kitchen, located on the beachfront. Salad was good, pizza ok, but definitely let down by presentation on aluminium bases, which reminded me a bit of chalk on blackboard when cutting pizza and unpleasant associations of al foil between teeth. Presentation of restaurant very basic and not very pleasant inside. Much nicer surroundings, pizza and experience at... More

If I lived on Ko Phangan, I would go to this restaurant every single day of the week and twice on Sunday. We got the ravioli with Bolognese sauce as well as two pizzas, the vegetarian and the 4 cheese. Every bite, even down to the last one, was of the utmost pleasure. Go! You won't regret it. The setting... More
