After 2 weeks of thai food we would like to eat some Italian food. For drink we chose fruit juice, which wasnt fresh, but bought in the shop... We ordered Da Papa salad which consists only from tomatoes, tuna, mozzarella, capers and olives. We missed the lettuce and generally the taste was below the average. We had a tomato soup... More

We ate breakfast here one day during our Koh Samui trip and it couldn't have been a worse start to the day! We had ordered an American breakfast and everything from the bacon to the scrambled eggs was soaked in oil. The bacon also had only the white fatty portions. The only saving grace was the coffee, which was in... More

This restaurant is a bit far from the activity area of chaweng, we went once for dinner and i wasn't impressed. Food is ok but too expansive for what you get

Lovely food. Gracious staff. Quick service. Had the fried red curry and pad Thai, was delish. Shame about the flies (we went in July) but other than that, would come back.

We come to Koh Samui every year. One of our first stops for food and one we always revisit again and again is Da Papa. We enjoy the food, friendly service and the great prices. Really worth experiencing. They do great home made pasta, wood fired pizza, fresh seafood and amazing Thai food. They really tick every box. Always clean.... More

I ate here twice and was pleased both times. The pizza is made in a wood burning outdoor oven that you can see from the dining area. The owner and his son are Italian and know how to make a very good pizza. The crust is perfect made in their oven and toppings good high quality European meats and cheeses.... More

I had the Ravioli Formaggio and that's what I got. Nothing more and nothing less. But as I was eating I was really missing something more! I was told it was home made but it looked and tasted like industrial food.

I came for breakfast, thinking I would like some real Italian coffee. What I got was a mug of hot milk with a slightly coffee taste. I asked if it was fresh and they assured me it was, and Italian - I'm not convinced :( Ambience was like a canteen, with unfriendly staff, and empty. I skipped the breakfast, as... More

Went here after reading the reviews and were not let down. The owner is lovely and welcoming and attends to your every need. The menu is extensive and has plenty for all. I am veggy and had a fantastic choice. The food is averaged price but well worth every penny. Would definitely recommend. We liked it so much we went... More

Absolutely loved this place! Staff were so friendly and polite and food was spot on!! Best pizzas we've had. The lady saw us swatting some mosquitos away and gave us a bottle of bug repellent, lovely gesture :) If we were on the island longer we would defiantly of gone back, have nothing to fault.
