Ciao Bella in Phi Phi

Loh Dalum Bay Restaurants & Dining

Ciao Bella faces eastward on Lo Dalum Beach and out over the idyllic and picturesque bay, making it the ideal location for a sunrise breakfast, but there’s only one catch – it doesn’t open until 10:00. It’s a large Italian restaurant with equally distributed outside and inside seating, a typical (for Phi Phi) relaxed atmosphere and serves Italian and Thai dishes, barbecues, and grilled seafood.

On the menu you’ll find several types of pizza with prices ranging from 120 baht to 250 baht, spaghetti pomadora, gnocchi bolognaise, tuna penne and a whole raft of Thai dishes. Check out the fresh seafood display on ice.

Décor & Food

Décor-wise, don’t expect too much as this is basic beach-side dining but do expect red tables and chairs, dim lights hanging from the trees, plenty of bamboo and typical pizzeria brickwork. The biggest plus point of Ciao Bella is its waterside location but even then later on in the evening this actually works against it when the neighbouring beachside nightclubs crank up their sound systems and the audio wars begin. Oh well, you can’t win ‘em all…

The tuna penne with tomato is generous enough with the pasta perfectly al dente and it’s noticeable that the tuna is fresh and that the dish comes with genuine Italian ingredients (bought in Phuket apparently). The Parma ham on the pizza is genuine and the overall standard of food here is fairly good yet this is far removed from fine dining and is best described as Italian home cuisine without frills.


Ciao Bella has a great location and real feet-in-the-sand dining; it offers free Wi-Fi and has cheerful staff members. Go on a full moon night and you’ll be dining in pretty much paradisiacal circumstances.
