“Good food and great hospitality”
Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

having eaten Thai food for a couple of weeks we were looking for something different for our Christmas lunch and this place did not dissapoint. Good service and great italian cooking with a menu packed with homemade pasta specialities left us full to the brim and unable to touch any of the free panetone offered at the end of our meal. The place is packed with italians both expats and tourists and is a little part of italy in patong. Ate there four times in all at lunch and dinner and never had a bad dish. Friendly place and highly recommended.

Thank steve o

“Good option for Italian food in Patong”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Out of the center of night-life and caos of Bangla Road, in a little alley stands Dolce Vita.
Didn't like the idea of eating italian out of Italy but needed a change from Thai food.
Tried (in two different dinners) various first courses (the best were linguine alle vongole e allo scoglio, generally pasta was well cooked and we enjoyed it).
Tried also the white snapper, wich was very good, and the moscardini, average.
Absolutely amazing the tiramisu!
The owners are nice guys, really friendly and cool.
The place is quite, nothing special but neither awfull.
In the end we can recommend the place if you're looking for an italian dinner at a reasonable price, just manage your expectation if you're italian (mostly because of the ingredients that you can find, the cooking was good...so choose fish and ask David or Mario for suggestion!)

“very good restaurant”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

very good italian dishes, northern cuisine mainly. Quality standard pretty higher than the average around here. Service is good and prices acceptable for the value. Dont's miss the ossobuco and the gnocchetti gorgonzola e noci!

“It was ok... food excellence, ambience...mmmmmm”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

I stumbled upon this restaurant whilst staying in Patong and whilst the food was lovely (linguine vongole) the ambience had a bit to be desired. They didn't have any of the cocktails I asked for available so settled for a Singha, and the pasta was spaghetti not linguine. Not the end of the world but if you're going to tout yourselves as a genuine Italian restaurant, then serve the right kind of pasta!
As I said food was lovely, but I was the only person there... and it wasn't the most amazing atmosphere for the prices... I wouldn't go out of my way to pop back!
