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 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

I only ate here one night as the food was only ok - it isn't the best in the area not the worst. they do have a good menu though and maybe i just didn't strike lucky the night I was here as i thought the pizza s looked really good. It is a nice setting, a really nice ambience... More

I visited Dolce Vita for numerous occasions. I did not try their dinner menu (as it was highly overpriced), but the desserts was my goal there. Romantic interior on a main Mae Haad street and a excellent chef. Worth it!

Friendly welcoming staff , nice location with good people watching from the seats by the windows. The highlight is the pizza! Really tasty - subtle base, delicious ingredients and well cooked. Loved it.

Ive been on Koh tao for the last 3 months, and i have ordered a pizza from Dolce Vita at least once a week! A bit pricey for Thailand but it is authentic Italian. :)

The home made pizza and pasta is to die for, the imported ingredients are prepared with loving care and attention. The brothers work hard to produce authentic cuisine in a nice setting. I look forward to every visit, probably one of the best Italian meals I have had outside Italy.

The pizza here is great. Good cheese and great dough. The greek salad is decent but a bit overpriced. This is a great place to go when you're craving for those lovely italian pizzas :)
