We had a dinner here with my girlfriend, and the best word to describe our dinner would be - nice. We enjoyed our food, and the service was efficient, and we felt that the price was reasonable. Nothing bad to say really - worth paying a visit if you're around.

After reading reviews of this restaurant and staying only five minutes away we thought our luck was in. However we came away sorely disappointed. To begin with we sat down and ordered some cocktails shortly followed by our food, around half an hour passes and we still have no drinks and ten minutes later our food has been brought out,...

Dear customer, I am very sorry that you had a disappointing experience with us. It is very unfortunate that you had to wait so long for for your drinks. We lost one of our bartenders that day so were one staff short. Sorry also about making a mistake with your order. After speaking with our staff they told me that... More

I proposed to my girlfriend at La Dolce Vita. I liaised with Phangan Weddings and they referred me to this restaurant since it was really quiet and had an amazing sunset. And boy where they right. This location is truly a magical setting in a quiet environment, far away from the tourist madness. Food is great, you can try authentic... More

Have eaten here 3times the last two day's and everything has been fantastic. The restaurant even stayed open an extra hour when we came late from a bad restaurant experience down the road. The pizza and pasta we got gave us the feeling of being in an expensive Italian restaurant, yet the prices were low. They had imported ingredients that... More

I've been here twice and we just can't get enough. Good service, friendly and fast staff, beautiful surroundings and nice atmosphere. But most of all amazing food!! Divine pastas and superb thin crusted fingerlicking pizzas. And all very well priced.

Really nice beach atmosphere, very kind hosts and perfect service. But more important: great Italian food. Don't leave phangan without trying one of the delicious dishes. And as a side note as Dutchmen; really fair-priced as well ^^.
