We had dinner at La Dolce Vita a few weeks ago and we chose it since it was one of the best in Phuket in TripAdvisor. As an Italian, I am always very cautious when I see Italian flags or Italian cuisine in restaurants. It is not easy to find places with authentic pizza and pasta. My friend and I were impressed. The food was delicious and tasty with ingredients imported directly from Italy. La mozzarella di bufala was just like the one you could try in Naples. The chef is from Tuscany. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. I felt at home. Also, it was nice to be away from the noisy main road. Totally recommend it! You won't be disappointed.
