Lovely Italian with friendly staff.

We had a lovely meal here. The pasta was very nice and the portions were very big. It is very central and the interior was beautiful. The waiter what Thai and was very friendly.

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

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.
