Our hotel had closed its facilities for the day with no warning so we found ourselves at 8pm on a busy night with nowhere to eat. One of the restaurants recommended on trip advisor was closed due to illness so... read more

Ate as a couple there the other night. We traveled 50 mins from the other side of the island to get there. The setting by the beach was fantastic and romantic. The food was some of the best Italian food I have ever had in Asia. The service was first class, attentive but not intrusive. We enjoyed it so much... More

We ate here as a couple in April 2015. The service was outstanding and very friendly. The owner (we think) came and personally checked that everything was ok on several occasions. The place is beautifully lit during the evening with nice background music which creates a really pleasant ambience. The food itself was excellent, well prepared traditional Italian dishes. Highly...

We went here for an evening meal as it was recommended on trip advisor and in our guild book. The food was lovely, the service great and the location is superb. We traveled to the location by bike and had a bit of difficulty finding the restaurant due to difficulty seeing the sign due to lighting. If you love Italian... More

After reading all the good reviews on tripadvisor we decided to try out La Dolce Vita. The restaurant is located just at the beach, and the setting is really good.
