La Gaetana Italian Restaurant

La Gaetana received a ‘Michelin Plate’ rating from the new Michelin Guide for Phuket. ‘Michelin Plate is a sign of excellent food.’

La Gaetana is one of the best and longest-established Italian restaurants in Phuket. It’s well known and recommended by longtime residents and Thais and is in our Top romantic restaurants in Phuket. It’s not about the view; it is not about the location, but all about La Gaetana’s excellent cuisine and very cosy atmosphere.

La Gaetana Italian Restaurant in Phuket Town

Gianni and his wife Ake came long ago and transformed an anonymous building into a beautiful restaurant with a warm atmosphere and lots of personal attention to detail. Designed with artistic but simple handmade paintwork, it is not pretentious yet feels sophisticated.

And of course, at the end of the day, it is all about the food. Lamb, fish and Osso Buco are just delicious and even simple things such as pasta are just great. Whatever you choose from the list or the blackboard on the wall, you are in for a treat and if you still can’t decide, do as I do: ask Gianni to suggest something, he always gets it right, and the same goes for the wine! The menu is long enough to please everyone, but don’t miss the day’s specials.

La Gaetana consists of two areas: the main room with air con and the second room without air con usually kept for those who forgot to book. So space is limited and popularity rather high; it comes with a price. But if you save this for a special occasion, you certainly won’t regret it. A little advice about the parking: It is almost impossible to find a place near the restaurant as it is on the very busy ‘Phuket Road’, but it is perfectly fine to park at the ‘Bang Neow Chinese Shrine‘ across the street.
