Great food and good service. Pasta was ravioli and was fresh home made and wash delicious. Burger was also really good. We asked for an antipasto plate with meat and cheese which wasn't actually on the menu but they were very accommodating and it was great. Would go again!

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!

Tasty, big amount of food and nice place, all what you are looking for when you want Italian pasta! Recommend 100% for days when you don't want Thai food!
