Inattentive service: our server sat meters from us at a table without making eye contact for the majority of our stay. Our food was not only tasteless and undesirable, but one of the dishes also came with a metal twist-tie in it. When confronted about the twist-tie, the server tried to explain to us what it was used for, but... More

Three weeks of travelling in Thailand and this was the most tasteless food. So many more to choose from. Don't be fooled by the Italian name.

After a week of Thai food, we wanted a change and decided to test ciao bella right by the beach. It is run be Italians, so it should be good, right? The prices were European anyway... I ordered pasta with a cheese sauce - super disappointing! And the pasta was undercooked. The pizza wasn't that great either. The place itself... More

Went here one night craving Western food after weeks of Thai and actually had a great pizza - nice crust, good toppings etc. Not at all expected!

I find someo f these reviews quite harsh for what I experienced to be a lovely restaurant. Dined here abuot 4 times with friends and my husband. We all really enjoyed the food, which was very cheap. The cocktails and shakes are great too. You can't expect to experience fine dining while eating at a beachbar on an island in... More

We visited this restaurant for dinner and were UTTERLY disappointed. As we came from the beach my girlfriend wanted to wash her hands and was told the ladies toilet was ‘out of service’ and no alternative option offered. I had visited the gents and dissuaded her from using it due to its appalling condition. We have seen some ‘interesting’ toilets... More

We had 2 really good meals here. The food is good and the location is brilliant. Service was average but that is pretty much expected in phi phi.
