La Gaetana
4.5 out of 5 based on 8 reviews.
Phuket Town, Phuket Town & Central

The small, long established family run Italian La Gaetana Restaurant, has been uniquely designed in a modern, rustic classy style. It is positioned in the heart of Phuket Town on Phuket Road, at the corner of Bang Niew Intersection, opposite to the Chinese Thep Rasri Foundation Shrine (Bang Niew Tao Buang Keng). It is highly recommended for those seeking a real Italian gourmet dishes and fine wines. The homemade food and product include bolognaise and Gorgonzola sauces, breads and pastas. The owner Gianni is a charming host who always like to add his personal touch to dishes and also greet customers. Having just over 30 covers this popular dining place can get busy so it is wise to book a table in advance.

  1. Gianni was a really first class host, amazing atmosphere, small with not many tables around 7, we had to book in advance. By a traffic light crossroads opposite a Chinese Temple, were we could park our car. Lamb ribs melted in our mouths, and pasta Gianni helped us chose the best type to suit us. No pizza on the menu and prices are high but loved the restaurant, service and atmosphere. so worth every baht.

  2. small intimate Italian restaurant, run by a very attentive husband and wife. Loved when they showed a box of all the different types pasta we could have. Bread was good and fresh. It was busy and they do not have many tables so we were lucky to get in. Diners arriving had made a reservation. This is a gem of a restaurant in Phuket Town

  3. I saw this restaurant in the movie before and had interest in to have the dinner at this restaurant since then. I know that the restaurant owner is very enteraining. If you order warm wine, he will give you a test in the traditional Eurepean style. The food is more intesting when they had been presend by the owner. He have very interesting skill of presenting. However, the price is also higher compare to other Italian restaurant in Town.

  4. After reading all the reviews online we decided that we had to check out La Gaetana, even though we were staying in Kata and had to pay our rip off taxi driver alot to get there. Yes its a very intimate setting, and the Italian owner does come and take care of you personally. However, we found the food to be a little underwhelming. Maybe we were exepcting too much but the size of the bill at the end should have meant that the quality would be top notch.

  5. I found this restaurant when I walked from Robinson to the market. It is just a small with not many table but very, cozy, charming and nice atmosphere. Homemade pasta is excellent, all food is fresh and yummy. I can say that it is one of the best Italian restaurant in Phuket…try it yourself.

  6. La Gaetana does some fierce Italian dishes and in my own opinion is the best for a dinner, second comes Salvatores. Have the owner recommend you meal. You wont be disappointed.

  7. Homemade pasta, spicy olive oil and possibly the best carpaccio in Phuket. Gaetana’s is a hidden gem in Phuket Town. One of the few places where it’s a good idea to make a reservation first.

  8. A friend brought my wife and I here and we were just blown away. Food was excellent and the deserts were to die for.

    Its a small and intimate setting with only a few tables and the owner was around and gave some very good recommendations, especially the wine.

    Highly recommended!
