Wandering if you get good Italian food in Thamel? Don't hesitate, the pizza's are excellent and the pasta is cooked how it should be, al dente!

When La Dolce Vita opened its doors in 1989 it was a game changer in the Valley bringing genuine Italian cuisine and sophistication to one location right in Thamel! It has maintained its high quality over the decades.

My friend and I visited here during our free time one weekend and were so happy with the environment and the food. The customer service was fantastic. It is a little pricey, but definitely worth it.

This place is one of the best for pizza's and pasta's in Nepal. And the rooftop in the heart of Thamel is a nice place. However, I find it quite expensive.
