Da Sandro Restaurant, run by Sandro & Frederico Valessio and their mother Kanjana, is a fantastic place to enjoy authentic Italian food & atmosphere in the heart of Kathu Phuket. Da Sandro Restaurant thrives itself to serves the best Italian cuisine in Phuket, by using only the freshest ingredients and their unique family recipes.
Da Sandro’s menu is extensive and includes very authentic Italian dishes, from fresh homemade pasta, perfectly cooked meat and seafood dishes to homemade desserts (especially the homemade gelati). The Valessio family has been making homemade gelato by the name “Gelati Nature” for over 30 years, which makes their gelato a must when visiting Da Sandro. The wine and drink list complements the menu very well and includes Italian, and new world wines for reasonable prices. BTW, you won’t find pizza here as in real Italian tradition it is a “Ristorante’ not a “Pizzeria”.
The interior is nicely and tastefully furnished with love to details and Sandro, who gives a warm welcome to everyone in their different languages is a great guy who is spot on in suggesting you the specialties of the day. Also the waitresses are attentive, friendly and helpful with suggestions for what’s good on a particular day.

All in all Da Sando Restaurant offers an authentic Italian dining experience and atmosphere far from the touristic spots in a nice ambience. It is one of the few places that we find to be consistently good, which can be a rare thing in Phuket. Said all above we can highly recommend Da Sandro Restaurant because it’s without doubt one of the best and most authentic Italian “Ristorante” in Phuket.
