Great pizza and pasta. Harmony Spa is good too. Came back here twice. The beach is also good for swimming. Not much for snorkeling though.

If you want real espresso and you're staying on the Northern end of the island, this is the place to go! This coffee shop and Italian restaurant also has a slightly "classier" vibe than a lot of the beach themed places on the island, and has a beautiful shaded seating area set out overlooking the water.

My family and I were in Gili in December. Our first night was spent in Gili Air, and my father looked on Trip Advisor for some advice on restaurants since we had never been before. Being Italian, he selected Vista Mare as it was extremely well rated. On the way there, we asked for directions from another restaurant not too... More

On my walk around the island I stopped here to watch the sunset and saw the name and remembered that this restaurant was in the top three for gili air and raved about the pizza and pasta. The setting is smart and upscale. I ordered the pizza . It had the strangest base I have ever tasted. It was like... More

Look, it has the title Italian but the ownership has changed BUT it had some of the best Indonesian food and drinks on the island. We had the Rendang and it was fantastic. Their drinks are strong and sunset views are perfect. Highly recommend.

We had our third attempt at an authentic Italian restaurant - just for a change of food after 2months in Indonesia. We were not lucky - first one - dolce vita was closed even though it had the owners returning on the 18th February (it was the 3rd March). Second one Danima served up corn and pumpkin soup as minestrone... More

No matter where you come from to have a dinner in this little original real Italian place it will make you feel like living in a move scene that sometime you catch on tv movie. The wonderful view and nice atmosphere of the place are amazing and the couple running the place (Italian from Modena) are really nice and friendly... More
