HAPPENINGS THAILAND SAMUI SPOTLIGHT The Island Godfather of Italian Restaurants Koh Samui’s first introduction to authentic Italian cuisine came from the long established island favourite, Prego restaurant. Though many Italian restaurants now grace the shores of Koh Samui, Prego holds its place as the best one to visit for that taste from the old country. Chef Marco’s precise ability to transport the flavour of Italy straight to Thailand draws in long-time islanders as well as a wealth of new visitors. Pasta dishes are good choices in the extensive menu given that it is hand made with real semolina flour. Their pizza menu is a crowd favourite as well, with the pies themselves done in a wood fire oven. Located along lively Chaweng beach road opposite Amari resort, Prego continues to offers complex Italian flavours and a wide selection of drinks in an unwavering commitment to quality dining in Samui.
