Living in Koh Tao for several months, I have had my fair share of pizzas. La Dolce Vita is hand's down the best and most authentic Italian I have encountered. Amazingly crisp yet doughy crust, and fresh toppings. The staff is also super friendly and helpful!

I had pizza at La Dolce Vita three times. Each time, the pizza was consistently very good. They have a single size which filled me up. If you had a starter or dessert, then the pizza would be large enough to share. The restaurant was clean and the service was very good.

Italian restaurants in SE Asia is sometimes a bit of a gamble, but this one is really good. A simple spaghetti aglio, olio e peperocini can be so good if it is cooked right and mine was spot on. Only restaurant in 6 years SE Asia we returned to.
