Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had amazing Bolognese pasta and probably the best spinach ravioli we've ever had. The place also has lovely atmosphere and its a must visit if you are in koh tao!

Wow is all I have to say. I had to wait to get off island to write this review for fear of the crazy Italian woman chef hunting me down. We arrived (party of 2) without reservations but were seated immediately. We ordered pasta carbonara...and the spinach raviolis. My dining partner’s carbonara came first but I said to start without me. Well starting turned into finishing before my raviolis came. Turns out they forgot about my entree. But they rushed the dish out and upon tasting the first one, the raviolis were cold. They were not hot or even lukewarm. They obviously rushed them out. The table of 5 Italians next to us were all served together, so maybe like someone else said they are discriminatory against non Italians / Europeans. I called the male owner over and said the raviolis were cold. I never complain or send food back, but after the dish was forgotten, I wanted to actually enjoy it! WELL the Italian chef owner woman flew out of the kitchen with the plate of raviolis saying there’s no way they could be cold, the kitchen is 45 degrees, and insinuating that we thought the ravs were frozen (which we absolutely did not). She was so confrontational we were both dumbfounded. It was insane. I wanted to get up and leave immediately. Who comes out of the kitchen to challenge a diners complaint? In my decades of dining out, nothing this close to disrespectful has ever happened. The male owner comped the ravs and gave us limoncello to try to save face. I’m sure he’s been dealing with her rants for years. The food here is actually good but the service is the worst I’ve ever experienced. Would never come back to this restaurant and I suggest no one else to go either if you want to remain un-accosted by the crazed chef.More

Proper authentic Italian cooking by the Italian owners wife. I could see her cooking away all night. Friendly service and the food was delicious, couldn’t fault it. Just wish I had enough room for dessert too.

We chose this restaurant because of the nice atmosphere (as many clients mentioned) and a European cuisine, which we were missing while working long time in China. We reserved a table for 9pm, but came a bit earlier. No free tables (that was ok, we...understand), but no place to wait (no lounge or bar) and the manager (Enio? Sorry, I may misheard his name) without any tint of smile told us just to come later. Ok, we did. Again without a smile he showed us the table and gave the menu. No problems with food, everything was very nice, the wine was a good Chardonnay from northern Italy (as he mentioned)... but we had a feeling that he didn't like us. He heartily welcomed other guests, was talking to them during the courses and then longly saying good buys to others. But not with us. We tried to asked him about something, his replies were short, minimal. We complimented the food, he just nodded, again, no smile. We thank the waiter, asked and paid the bill, nobody said us thank you and good buy. So, we liked the food but will not come again because we can't understand why the owner is so nice with some guests, but ignoring/hardly tolerating others. The atmosphere was not comfortable for us. If you are not Italians or other Europeans, there remains a risk that you will be served with discrimination, with "gnashing teeth". SorryMore

The reviews weren’t wrong. Every element of this meal surprised and delighted from the crispy fresh bread to the hand folded ravioli. The grilled fish special of the evening was braided in some way before grilling it making it incredibly tender. Finally do not miss...the deserts. The parfait may have been the best dessert of our trip.More

Myself and my husband visited here for dinner last night and we were so impressed. The service was absolutely brilliant, it is so clear the staff genuinely care about the business and they really took the time to explain the dishes to us. The food...was exceptional. It was absolutely delicious! The decor of the restaurant is so adorable with lots of lights. This made our honeymoon meal feel just extra romantic. We went as it opened so had no issues however within about half hour the whole restaurant was full and people were getting turned away so come early to avoid disappointment! Thank you so much for a delicious meal. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone!More

We spent 12 days in beautiful Koh tao and had 4 dinners at Thaita. The level of food is truly beyond what you might expect and it’s made with love in a beautiful venue by friendly and professional people. We can’t point out just a...few specific dishes on the menu as It’s worth trying everything. Don’t miss the deserts you’ll miss the pinnacle of the experience.More

This is probably the best restaurant on Koh Tao. Every dish is delicious and made to the high standard. It would be a real treat in every country, but in Thailand it's especially valuable.

Excellent food - from the “Ravioli Ricotta e spinaci” to the catch of the day- “trevally fillet”. Delicious and very well prepared and presented. The pasta is home made. The panna cotta which we had as dessert was also perfect. All topped off by a...wonderfully relaxed, almost ‘feet in the sand’ atmosphere Many thanks for a wonderful evening. We will be back for more.More
