Terrace ambiance is relaxing. Good service. Pizzas cooked with perfection and yes they are yumm, one thing I hope to see them improve is the portion. Yes I don't understand why they get so stingy with topping portion. Common, 2 extra slices of pepperoni is not going to kill your profit. Repeat customers is what you want, don't just focus... More

Big improve on my last visit in 2015. The service has steeped up a notch and the food is great. One of the better places to eat in Thamel, and the rooftop location is perfect, good speed with the wifi and a large menu. Will definitely return on my next visit.

This place is well-located in the middle of Thamel. The pizzas are good and good value for money. Drinks choice is good too.

We visited La Dolce Vita after 2 weeks of trekking for a much needed break from Nepalese food. We both ordered pasta, which was actually very well cooked, but the portion size was very small and to top it off the dishes were expensive and 25% extra was added to the bill at the end (vat and service charge). Unfortunately,... More

We ate here two nights in a row. I had the cannelloni and the fettuccini with salmon. Both were excellent! The garlic bread and the house wine also were lovely.

We visit Kathmandu regularly and always eat at least once in La dolce vita. Great Illy coffee also. Nice and quiet with an Italian movie theme. The menu is short otherwise we would eat there more often. But I warmly recommend their bruschettas, pizzas and the tagliatelle al salmone.

I've been to this restaurant on a number of occasions and it's ok for a meal after a long day site-seeing and you're staying close, there are others that I would also go to. Brochettes were good so too the Lasagne. Pizza ok. Time for service varied.
