After today's Beach Clean up, I had lunch at an old favorite of mine in Chaweng, Il Duomo.
Il Duomo has been around for 8 years now and I've been visiting on a regular, irregular base, if you get my drift! Over the years the quality has been very consistent. My favorite is a pizza with 4 different kind of cheeses but they have plenty of other good choices on the menu, including a wide arrangement of fresh pastas, like gnocchi.
Massi, who was in my last IDC and consequently successful in the PADI IE and who's Italian, visited here at least once a week during his two months stay on Koh Samui.
The name Il Duomo refers to the city of Milan's Cathedral!
Il Duomo is located almost opposite the big Starbucks in Chaweng, in a small soi or side street. This is how it looks from outside.
Today I opted for this absolutely lovely 'Gnocchetti neri alla polpa di grancho' or also known as 'Black potato gnocchi in fresh crab meat sauce'. The black gnocchetti made for a nice and 'something different' experience. Il Duomo's menu is riddled with such interesting dishes and it's definitely one of the better Italian Restaurants on Chaweng Beach. Highly recommended by me!
