We needed a break from Thai food so found this wonderful Italian restaurant set back off the main beach road. Marvellous discovery, wonderful food - I had pasta and my husband had pizza. The only thing that let them down was serving the red wine chilled - I prefer my Merlot at room temperature!

Valentina and her local staff do a great job running this excellent Italian Restaurant down an alleyway off beach road in Kamala. Quality and pricing off both food and drinks is exceptional for this unpretentious style of restaurant and its not just pasta and pizza either ! Well worth a visit when in this area.

We can only recommend La Cabonara. We have been in Kamala many times, but only the last time dined at La Cabonare, and that is a big mistake. This time did we dine here 3 times, and all 3 times was stunning, great service, great food and the atmosphere was very good. Fist time did we have a steak and... More

Been here a few times for a meal. Primarily Italian food. Good quality food for when you are over eating thai food. Bit pricey, but enjoyable meal. Clean and friendly staff.

This was probably the best meal we had while in Phuket, even better than the Thai meals we had! I recommend the gnocchi with lamb ragu (it was on the specials board), it was incredible! Staff were also very friendly and service was great. Highly recommended.

Well located on Kamala Beach (Phuket) but not on the main road so you'll have the serenity you deserve for your dinner. Big open space where to dine so you can enjoy the evening's fresh air. The restaurant is run by Francesco (the chef) and his wife Valentina (maitre and sommelier). Both of them are very friendly, welcoming and speak... More

We ate here during our stay at Kamala beach and really enjoyed the homemade Italian food which was served. Lovely bruschetta, mozzarella, olive oil and homemade pasta with tasty sauces. The service was not as good as the food though, they were quick to clear one of our plates although the other was still eating, then forgot to replace cutlery... More

We visited La Carbonara as a second choice, we wanted to visit Grill Bill but there were no free tables. I do have to say that we was absolutely thrilled by visiting La Carbonara, we both had the days specials, my wife spaghetti with some mushroom sauce and I pork tenderloin with redwine sauce. Both dishes were absolutely fantastic. For... More
