Good burger!

Wife & I both had burgers, the standard and the Double cheese. Both very fresh and both tasted great. I don't recall it being specifically expensive or cheap. Service was ok. Location on main road and is spacious. Would happily recommend this.

We had burgers here and they tasted really really good. The service wasn't fantastic but they weren't horrible either they just ignore you and don't interact at all. Worth a visit if you just fancy something tasty to eat whilst in Koh Tao.

I had a typical italian dinner in La Doce Vita (gnocchi and tagliateli) and it was delicious. The service was perfect and the price was quite fair. It was the best dinner in Koh Tao.

This place is better than it looks from the outside. Friendly service, delicious bruschetta and homemade pasta. It definitely satisfied my Italian food craving after two weeks of Thai. I would recommend!

owner is super sweet. the service was a little slow but to be expected in Thailand! I will come back for the appetizers and wine. Didn't try the main courses but they looked big.

I found this place on Trip Advisor when searching for "Best Pizza in Ko Tao"....was growing tired of eating Thai food for 3 weeks and wanted an authentic piece of pizza. La Dolce Vita did not disappoint. When we walked up, there was no one in the restaurant, which I thought was strange - especially since the food was incredible.... More

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.
