Great food to Take Out!

We ordered food to take away and it was very nice, especially the pizza. Would definitely recommend the food here and if we were to return to Ko Tao (hopefully someday soon) we will be ordering from you again...thank you :)

We thoroughly enjoyed the pizzas we had here - particularly the seafood one! They tasted like genuine authentic Italian pizza which is hard to come by in Asia! Recommend if you're looking for a nice change from Thai cuisine and a reasonable price at around 250 baht per pizza.

We wanted to change after everyday of thai food, so a pizza seemed to be an easy and good choice. The place is running by locals so the Italian spirit is completely lost. We order two pizzas that could be those frozen you buy on a supermarket, zero tasty. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

We had tried different pasta dishes for a very fussy eater, our teenage daughter. They were not good at all and one napoletana was full of spice. The napoletana at Dolce Vita was exactly as you would expect it to be. There is no reason to expect Thai chefs to be good at cooking Italian meals, but we had to... More

We had dinner here twice during our stay in Ko Tao. The pizza was nice and the pasta was really good. The lasagna was probably the best I've ever had. Service was good. The prices are a bit high but in my opinion totally worth it.

We ate here twice. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and nice lighting. The first time we had the antipasto with the aged serano which has amazing flavour. The portion was really generous. We followed with the gnocchi which had a nice creamy sauce but nothing spectacular. The only downside was the carafe of white wine. It was def out... More

We came here for a meal on our second night in Ko tao. The staff are friendly and the food is good, though on the expensive side. We ordered a garlic bread which was lovely, though it came in a bruschetta style with tomato and cheese?! We then had a tomato pasta which was bland and overpriced, but the mushroom... More
