“The Italian way...”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

We visited Ziva by accident, but came back a few days later with friends because of the great food, the ambiance and the nice staff. It's a bit more expensive but this is compensated widely because of those reasons. The owner, she is knowing what guests expect and makes sure everything is going the way it should. Go there to have the taste of Italy in Thailand!

“A real Italian restaurant with a real Israeli name”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

Thoroughly enjoyed this lovely, quirky little Italian restaurant. We had been travelling for long enough that a nice homely pizza was perfect for our mood. The desert was also delicious.

The owner was a fascinating woman who, with time to chat on our first visit, told us the lovely story behind the restaurant and its name.

“Great If You Like Pizza”
Reviewed February 7, 2014 via mobile

The menu has a great selection of pizza's but only penne & spaghetti, as a choice of pasta. The ante pasta was very good as a starter, as were the meatballs. However for me there was not enough choice for a non pizza lover but to be fair the food was very good.

“Great Italian Food”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

Fresh, very tasty Italian food in Koh Chang. Strongly recommend. The desserts too are a must try. The Italian owner/chef makes them herself - not purchased from an outside bakery. Strongly recommend trying out the desserts on the menu.
