Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Looked cute and had a higher rating so thought it would be better. There were insects EVERYWHERE, and the staff only laughed every time the bugs landed on you. Tried to ignore it and focus on the food, but it was impossible to ignore. We...also ordered two pizzas and only got one. The pizza was good enough, but we bolted as fast as possible and got a toast at 7/11 instead…More

This is a lovely Italian restaurant. The food has excellent flavour and personally it is the best Italian restaurant I know. Prices are also good - highly recommended!

After a great holiday in Thailand we were craving a really nice pizza (and cheese) We had the most amazing food, loved the burrata. The service was amazing, the women who served was really funny but also helpful. We had an amazing night and the...ambiance really helped for that. Really recommend it, you will definitely have a good time and a full stomachMore

We’ve had quite a lot of lunches in Thailand but this one tops all. We both had a sandwich and it was really good. The bread is real good Italian bread and not a sloppy knock-off that you see at many other restaurant. Just delicious...and we will come back! 😋More

They have great food. I have eating their cafe since 2012 and continue to eat there until my ex-wife lawyer take all my money or I die. Every holiday girl I take there love the food and wine. Renaldo and I spend many night drink...the best wine and eat the best cheeses. This is like family dinner for me from the old country. The best wines and foods.More

I took my family to ' Viva ' for lunch yesterday. The pizzas and sandwiches were delicious and very fresh as always. The place is super clean, friendly and we were welcomed back by the owner who is a super guy having been open since...1999 ! The pizza/pasta/sandwich menu is fab but if anyone wants thai food its also available. Theres a great range of wine/beers/soft drinks/coffees/puddings etc. Something for everyone ! We will be back as Viva never dissapoints !More

Brilliant. Very good pizza, one of the best places we’ve visited during a 3 month stay in Thailand. Dessert is also worth a try, homemade tiramisu and brownie were great. Pretty cheap as well, fully recommended.

After reading the reviews on trip advisor I figured I'd give this place a try. I was the only person at the restaurant when I arrived. After I ordered a beer and food several employees and I think a female manager (I believe) started screaming...at each other between the dining room and the kitchen for about 20 minutes! I was offered an apology by the owner (I believe) though the yelling and screaming continued. When my food arrived the one women who had been in the argument and spoke good English said it was just family arguments... Seriously unbelievable and unprofessional.... Good thing I didn't come here for a date with my girlfriend. Anyways my recommendation to you the readers is that there used to be a couple good Italian restaurants in Ao Nang (Pre-Covid) not sure if they are still open though, you may wish to check there. (No need to visit this place due to the immaturity of the staff)More

We called into Viva last week on our way to Koh Lanta. In these quiet times there were still a few tables. The menu is super. Normally we have had the pizza/pasta options for dinner but this was lunch so we had 2 lovely fresh...sandwiches. Service was great, quick, friendly and the bill was as usual very reasonable. The owner is friendly and always greets us and has a chat. It's very hard to choose anywhere else in Krabi town as this is our 'Old faithfull' stop ! Of course we will be back !More

We love Viva!! We have been eating there for many years when we visit Krabi Town and the food is always consistently great! Home made pasta and pizzas, better than you'd get in the UK. Always a variety of italian wines and freshly made desserts...that are excellent. We are always made to feel welcome by Renato and his lovely wife who both work in the restaurant and train the young staff to a high standard. Keep up the good work!! Diana and Richard.More
