I dropped into this restaurant by chance today with my two children. We ordered pizza and gnocchi. Wow tasted amazing - like proper pizza not frozen bases we have had on the island. Staff were very friendly. Would have liked a few more table in the shade but otherwise great job would go back for sure. Very reasonably priced.

I ate at La Dolce Vita on about 6 occasions during my 3 week stay in Koh Phangan. My favourite table was one in the sand on the beach and I would arrive at about 5.45pm so that I could enjoy a drink with toes in the sand and watch the spectacular sunsets in the sea (about 6pm). The cocktails... More

The setting of the restaurant is outstanding, with excellent service and a large variety of excellent options. Andrea, the owner, brings with him from Italy the authentic Italian taste and style, and Boom, his partner, brings the rich Thai flavors and attention to details. Don't miss out on the Panna Cotta for desert!!!

This place is absolutely Devine! Sit on the beach and watch the sunset with your feet in the sand and order one of their incredible cheese platters with cold meats - AMAZING! The mozzarella and ham parcels are a must along with the money bags. Beautiful food and great service. A must on while on Koh Phanang!

Great restaurant. You can tell the food is homemade. The thai food was really tasty and the sea food fresh (they didn't have the entire menu available because they go pick up sea food and fish at the market in the morning so it all depends on the catch of the day). The pizzas were also Italian style and good... More
