Cosy restaurant at the main street of Kai Bae. Great ravioli with butter and sage. The pizza's are also good with a thin crust and fresh toppings. A good alternative to Thai food.

Location is right on the main road in Kae Bae, but still the atmosphere is very nice, with good attention to the decor. We had two pizzas, one with onion/oregano and one with basil/mozzarella (called Ziva). Both really nice and along with 2 beers and 2 x water the cost was Bht 700. Service was cheerful and prompt. Highly recommended... More

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...

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.

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.

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.

Went during Christmas, was very busy and a bit slow service. But the quality food that come out from the kitchen made up for it. We were a table of 4 and had pasta, pizza, pork steak and cold cuts. Definitely a place to return to next time in Koh Chang.

Nice place with very good food, here you can also find some well made salads, very good pasta and pizza. Prices are quite high tough.
