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.

We always try at least one Italian restaurant while away due to the fact Brisbane has no Italian restaurants that I would take my dog to. Ziva the food was very good the wine was great and the Host was superb nothing was any trouble for her. Please give this place a go you wont regret.

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.
