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 :)

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
