Perhaps there are two distinct elements to review with this restaurant - the location and the food - happily both are of a very high standard. 'The perfect location' is a phrase I've often seen used to describe places that are merely convenient, perhaps just close to a tourist sight, but surely this restaurant truly claims that title. Beneath the... More

Dear James, Thank you very much for your kind review! It was a pleasure to have you and your wife with us. We know about the mosquito situation. It is the same everywhere on the island. That's why we provide mosquito spray and coils to our customers. Thankfully the mosquitoes are around only around sunset and sunrise time. Wishing you... More

We just crossed the beach this evening and saw a real Italian family restaurant that makes home made pasta. It looked nice, so we decided to change the Thai food we are eating with pleasure the past week. The cocktails were good, the Greek salad and bruschette were nice and refreshing (we do miss cherry tomatoes though), pesto from Thai... More

This is an excellent restaurant with very good pasta and thai dishes combined with nice Italian wines. For dessert they have some very nice ice cream and an excellent Tiramisu. The prices are very reasonable. Choose between a table at the beach with sand between your toes, a table on the veranda or some nice cushions to relax on while... More

We stayed in a little resort along the Beach from this lovely restaurant over the Christmas period in 2013. We were there for 12 days. We went nearly every single day for lunch or dinner to this excellent restaurant. This was our second time on this island, and we had a motorbike so we were able to explore. We can... More

I have been there several times and every time have enjoyed it. I can say, that if you missi good coffee in Koh Phangan, go there. If you miss in Thailand italian food and nice pizza or tiramisu - go there. If you are looking for the place where to propose - go there, because you will see the beautiful... More

We went to La Dolce Vita twice because it was close to our resort. The food was delicious (especially at the second time because our pasta was prepared by the chef - an Italian - himself). They also offer a big variety of desserts (they served a perfect cheesecake although it was not on the menue). Just my two cents:... More

Back in the cold of Europe, I wish I could be beamed out to that wonderful ambiance where the sun melt into the sea and the sundowners taste twice as good. Foodwise a dream : the italian food is very genuine and authentic , what as become difficult to find in Thailand and the thai food is delicious as well... More

During our stay at the "Blue Ocean Garden Resort" (8 days, highly recommended), we ate almost everyday 2 or 3 times at "La Dolce Vita". The food was simply too good to look around for other restaurants. Every day we tried something different and we can tell you: There is no bad choice. We loved the homemade Gnocchi but the... More
