We had really nice food in Ziva, and they do have glutein-free pasta which was really delicious. Also we got a small portion to our baby. Staff were super friendly and they spoke good english.

Cute restaurant in Kai Bae main road. Atmosphere was lovely and service excellent, the best i've received here! Everybody spoke good english. I ordered pizza 4formaggi and it was delicious! Nice variation between Thaifood. Also we took little bit wine which was nice. Prices are quite high thats why I didn't give full 5 stars.

I was so happy to find Ziva which is on the main road in Kai bae . This smart little restaurant has tons of character, just like the Italien lady owner who runs and oversees her kitchen, and also makes time to greet her guests and check that everyone is happy, which they are, everyone seems to be enjoying their...

We went to Ziva as we wanted to have a break of the Asian food and my older son decided that pizza could be a good option. We chose 3 different pizzas for 5 people which was sufficient food. All pizzas were delicious and very tasty, all in thin crust (carbonara, capricciosa, mediterranean). The service was pretty good, all very... More

You can find the italian restaurant Ziva right in the middle of Kai Bei (Koh Chang). A great restaurant that really differentiates itself in many ways from other restaurants in the area. It's clean and cozy with great service. Ziva prides itself in being genuine Italian and not "Thaitalian" - and you get a sense of that once you start... More

Just came across this restaurant by accident but it was a very pleasant surprise! The menu is full of lovely sounding Italian food, something for everyone. Prices are mid-range but we'll worth it. We got bruscetta to start which was so full of flavour and then a pasta and pizza. Both were really yummy. Pasta was cooked a bit al... More
