I took my family to ' Viva ' for lunch yesterday. The pizzas and sandwiches were delicious and very fresh as always. The place is super clean, friendly and we were welcomed back by the owner who is a super guy having been open since...1999 ! The pizza/pasta/sandwich menu is fab but if anyone wants thai food its also available. Theres a great range of wine/beers/soft drinks/coffees/puddings etc. Something for everyone ! We will be back as Viva never dissapoints !More

One of the best pizzas we’ve had in a long time - definitely best pizza in Thailand! Amazing tomato base on the pizza - tasted really fresh!

Brilliant. Very good pizza, one of the best places we’ve visited during a 3 month stay in Thailand. Dessert is also worth a try, homemade tiramisu and brownie were great. Pretty cheap as well, fully recommended.

After reading the reviews on trip advisor I figured I'd give this place a try. I was the only person at the restaurant when I arrived. After I ordered a beer and food several employees and I think a female manager (I believe) started screaming...at each other between the dining room and the kitchen for about 20 minutes! I was offered an apology by the owner (I believe) though the yelling and screaming continued. When my food arrived the one women who had been in the argument and spoke good English said it was just family arguments... Seriously unbelievable and unprofessional.... Good thing I didn't come here for a date with my girlfriend. Anyways my recommendation to you the readers is that there used to be a couple good Italian restaurants in Ao Nang (Pre-Covid) not sure if they are still open though, you may wish to check there. (No need to visit this place due to the immaturity of the staff)More

We called into Viva last week on our way to Koh Lanta. In these quiet times there were still a few tables. The menu is super. Normally we have had the pizza/pasta options for dinner but this was lunch so we had 2 lovely fresh...sandwiches. Service was great, quick, friendly and the bill was as usual very reasonable. The owner is friendly and always greets us and has a chat. It's very hard to choose anywhere else in Krabi town as this is our 'Old faithfull' stop ! Of course we will be back !More

We love Viva!! We have been eating there for many years when we visit Krabi Town and the food is always consistently great! Home made pasta and pizzas, better than you'd get in the UK. Always a variety of italian wines and freshly made desserts...that are excellent. We are always made to feel welcome by Renato and his lovely wife who both work in the restaurant and train the young staff to a high standard. Keep up the good work!! Diana and Richard.More

It can be difficult to find restaurants that serve real Italien food in Thailand. Luckely there has been a few exceptions to this on our way, - and Viva is for sure one of them! The menue is not big, but what is served here...is of very good quality. The pasta was perfectly cooked and the ingredienses fresh and delitious. (It is a good sign to meet so many italiens here.) In addition the owner and staff are very welcoming and serviceminded. So all together an experience fare above expectations. I guess this gives an idea of why we always end up at Viva.More

Outstanding pizza that beats most pizzerias in Italy, too. Crusty, homemade and simply delicious. Also smooth jazz playing in the background, great atmosphere.

Visited twice during our week in Krabi Town. Without doubt the best Italian restaurant in the area, I can’t understand why this restaurant isn’t at the top of restaurant listings on trip advisor. The pizza is superb, authentic Italian style with authentic toppings, So tasty,...light, and crispy. The pasta is tasty and served al dente. The panna cotta is absolutely delicious, clearly made with love on the premises.More
