Yum

This is a very cute, chic, and clean cafe close to the main jetty. The food was nice, we ordered calzone, juices, coffee and chocolate croissants. All were very nice. The staff were polite and very helpful, I would recommend eating there.

Popped into La Dolce Vita with a friend of mine (who is the pickiest coffee drinker in the world) and we were both impressed with the coffee at this cafe. Francesco (the owner) is very knowledgeable about coffee, he imports the beans from Italy (his home country) and offers a wide range of drinks to choose from -- he even... More

Ate here shortly after arriving on the island and returned numerous times during my fortnight stay. Delicious pizzas, sandwiches, snacks. Friendly staff. Good prices. Clean. I wish there was somewhere this good where I could buy lunch near me at home!

We stopped in here for a quick lunch, after the calzones here were recommended. They were really tasty, and the pastries looked great too. Very reasonably priced too.

This place is awesome for a light lunch or snack. The food is fresh and I have never had such great pizza. There are a lot of staff behind the counter though and it's a little intimidating at first.

After reading the TA reviews, we stopped by for coffee and cappuccino. The owner is Italian. Many of the regulars are Italian as well. After ordering our drinks, we stayed for a bit to enjoy the Italian conversation. For a moment, I thought I was back in Italy. Our drinks were perfect. The chocolate croissants were delicious. While on Gili... More

Maybe the best place to have a real coffee on Gili Trawangan, their small calzones and baguette sandwiches are cheap and really good ! Plus the owner is really nice ... Highly recommended !!

Loved loved loved this place. We were in Gili T for 3 days and we've been there almost everyday. Calzones are the best but make sure to try the rest too!

This quiet gem is a little off the main stretch, and perfect when you need a break from the local fare and want a little calm. The owner is Italian. The prices are reasonable in a very expensive island.
