This tiny restaurant has become my favorite italian in Pattaya.
Its located in Central Rd (or Pattaya Klang Rd) Soi 14, approx. 650 ft off Central Rd on the left side.
I've been there quite a few times, but I was always the only foreigner NOT speaking italian language......
Prices are reasonable, the restaurant itself is a bit basic.
Both pizza and pasta are prepared by two elderly italian gentlemen.

 

Closed on sundays!

Does the Tortellini taste as good as it looks?  I've had Lasagne a couple of times in Pattaya, very hit and miss though.

I've eaten there recently and what it lacks in ambience is more than made up by the food.Pizzas are thin-crusted and crispy.I tried both the gnocchi and ravioli which is not found in many Italian restaurants,so it's well worth a visit.

The italian restaurant on Walking Street is also quite good.

Not many like this in Pattaya, which serve the original : veal ! (instead of piccata milanese, saltimbocca,.. from pork or chicken) 

 

Another small one in the soi behind the former Famous bar, Italian chef from Toscana.

Alfonso (nicknamed "Da Cionso") the owner of the "Da Cionso" restaurant has retired and moved with his wife to somewhere in Isaan.....

Luckily the place has not turned into just another indian or arab restaurant, Alfonso did find a young italian to take over the business.

 

The new name of ex-Da Cionso is "PFM International Restaurant" and they already have a page on fartbook.

Thanks, will for sure go there, when back in Gotham!

Good luck to him in "Little Calcutta", the Indians are practically taking over that area, backed by some influential Bangkok guys with Indian origins.

Worth, to support a young Italian in his endeavour and original taste ... there are already too many Thai and Indians jumping on the bandwagon with awful copies.

Glad to see this place is reviving again.... although the new name is a tad uninspiring! I noticed Da Cionsa was closed during my last visit. I will make a point of eating there next time....happy to support a young entrepreneur. Good luck to him!

Have been there with a buddy two nights ago. The menu is smaller than before. The staff and the italian cook are very friendly. I have had the hawaiin pizza with mozarella cheese and it was a really good one. A thin pizza as I like. My buddy had spaghetti with bacon and was very satisfied.

 

I'll recommend to be there before 8pm otherwise you might have to wait a while cause they only have 5 or 6 tables.

Will give it a try in the next few days.

Don't see my favorite, Airribiatta, guess I could always ask the chef to make for me.

Jaybee and I ate here last night. Great food coming from a truly humbling (but clean!) kitchen. No doubt the chef has talent. His pizza is comparable if not better than some I've had in restaurants with a brick oven, and when I saw the oven, I thought "that's it?" Had pizza and tortellini. Nice glass of house wine for ฿90.

Highly recommended. Thursday evening, just before 2100, we were the only customers. A little off the beaten track, but wonderfully peaceful; ever hear that word in Pattaya?

Here's the map on the back of his business card. Continue up 14 a short walk, it is just past the left where you can see signs for at least 3 Indian restaurants.

been there two times about a week or so ago. The new owner is quite talented and experiments a lot on his pizzas concerning flour, temperatures, humidity and all the variables. He is on business for some time allready ( had restaurants in Phuket, Brazil etc. ) and took over the place as a friend told him about the opportunity.

He took over some space from the neighboring shop and has added two further tables now, highly recommended.
