Got together with some friends and headed down to Ziva, heard from guys around that it was pretty good. The cuisine was excellent and since we were late till the last hours the owner came and spoke to us for a lengthy time. She was very polite and chatty about her life in Thailand. BTW, she named the restaurant after... More

Let's start with the most important thing: the food is very good. The basics are there: the penne with tomato sauce and the spaghetti all'arrabbiata were tasting really Italian. The pasta was not al dente but I cannot say overcooked. We enjoyed both the plates. The pizza was not so good but I could not expect differently. The fish fillet... More

We really enjoyed both the atmosphere and food at Ziva. This restaurant was recommended to us by our resort, as it is run by a lovely Italian woman - who knows how to treat and feed customers! We enjoyed a lovely salad, gnocchi, and rolled pasta stuffed with spinach. For dessert she has an amazing mint panna cotta with chocolate... More

Hands down one of the best restaurants on the island. The atmosphere is great, the staff is very friendly, the owner is super friendly and really takes good care of the guests. The pasta is great and what ever you do, for the love of God, do not miss their homemade Tiramisu dessert, it's to die for!

I was excited to eat here because of all the good reviews but was quite disappointed. The ravioli I had was not very flavorful, even though the portion was fairly big. The carbonara pizza was just okay. The atmosphere/decor of the place was very nice, but we found the food to be quite average, especially considering the higher than average... More
