This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend who lives in Krabi and I could not have been more pleased. I ate here 2 nights, having pasta both times (gnocchi ragu bolognese and penne with tuna capers and chilli). Both were delicious, especially the gnocchi. The staff were very polite and wonderful, the owners also. I stayed a while... More

Highly recommend place to go to if you're up for a break on all the Thai food. The owner, Italian, is a great chef and brings the better Italian food and wine on your table. Friendly staff and nice Italian decoration. I had a pizza just as good as in any local Italian trattoria - and my partner's seafood pasta... More

I agree... You don't come all the way from Europe to Thailand to eat pizza or pasta, but Thai food for 2 weeks in a row is just too much, isn't it? So when we came across Viva in the streets of Krabi, we decided to have a pasta and pizza evening. My partner choose for a pizza prosciutto e... More

Very friendly owners and staff, family/children friendly and big and small group capable. We've been coming... More

Wow amazing food! The owner walked over and asked if we were ok etc. The staff was good and attentive. This place isn't on the main drag but worth the walk. I wasn't wanting Thai and this was perfect. We got pizza, bruschetta and beer. The weather is hot but they have airy restaurant.

Me and my partner returned to this restaurant 3 times during our stay on Krabi. The food is delicious with so much vegetarian choice for us and tasted so fresh each time! The staff and owners are all really welcoming and attentive and made our visits enjoyable each time!

We went here for lunch today on our way to our accommodation just after we arrived from Koh Lanta. We didn't have time or wifi to check for restaurants and we thought this place looked very friendly - they didn't disappoint us. Service was really quick and the food was just great (felt like home). We would definitely recommend this... More

I would definitely recommend this place! The pizzas are simply delicious and the staff very friendly. During the two nights that I stayed at Krabi, I visited this place twice!
