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 :)

Went here by myself january 2015. The place looks nice and is pretty big, with both 2 person tables and bigger 6-8 person seating. Extensive menu, most of the Italian usual suspects. I had pumpkin/potatoe soup with croutons which could've used a bit more spicing but was good nonetheless and very filling. After that I had the Calabrese pizza which... More

For me, a key characteristic of an authentic Italian restaurant is when they cook the noodles with the sauce. A must in my books. There are other restaurants on Ko Tao offering Italian but none of them compared to Dolce Vita. Fresh, beautifully prepared Bruschetta, with just enough garlic. Homemade pasta with traditional bolognese sauce, onion, carrot, celery, tomatoes and... More

My partner and I had a meal here on our first night in Ko Tao after it was recommended by the owner of our guesthouse. We were not disappointed. I had the seafood linguine and my partner had the lasagne. Both meals were delicious. Probably some of the best Italian food we have eaten and we like Italian food. The... More

I have not been here for a few years so I was very excited to come back and eat Dolce Vita again. The food is amazing, I particularly love the ravioli and bruschetta. I highly recomend this restaurant.

What a fantastic welcoming restaurant with amazing Italian food! My husband used to be a high qualified chef and the first time we came here he was very impressed. He said if you close your eyes it feels like if you in Italy so good that this food is! And it's true! Wow I still miss it! Well done to... More

We came here on the recommendation of someone living in Koh Tao, and we weren't disappointed (we knew we'd love it, based on the owner's hilarious TripAdvisor responses. Complimenti! Ci hai fatto proprio ridere). The food was delicious - you could be in Italy. I had the lasagne and marvelled at the portion size ("I'll never eat all that!"), before... More

Stumbled upon this place by chance. It won't get more Italian in Thailand and also not in a lot of other countries. Great bruchetta, chese, olives and suasage as starter and good dorade, oven baked lasagna and pizza as entree. We were more than happy with taste, portions and service. The complimentary amaretto finished a great meal.
