This is a great place for pizza in my top 3 in Nairobi after Pomodoro in the Village Market. It lacks service quality but the food is great. I recommend going at night.

The shopping center is not great, nor was this easy for me to find, but I was pleasantly surprised by the good and solid cooking and the spot-on Italian flavors. Will go back with my Chef husband.

The service is perfect, the people polite, a nice movie based theme, decorations in order, helpful manager, water bottles everywhere. The menu uses very refined words which both fascinate as enrich the imagination of us potential costumers. The food, however, we found somehow overpriced and a bit disappointing. Sad, for the looks of this new venture were really great, and... More

I actually like the location as I am not a fan of... More

Great Italian cuisine, made especially nice by the Chef/Owner. Tried shrimp salad - Very different from what I have had. Served with since Mayonnaise sauce. Ravioli stuffed with spinach and feta cheese was good. The bruschetta was good. Served with different toppings

I enjoy my Italian food and have dined at La Dolche Vita for years as I've really enjoyed their classic Tagliatelle with Salmon and vodka. It's a flavorful dish that always has me coming back. This time on the managers recommendation, I had the seafood spaghetti in their special pink sauce. WOW! Divine. It was eternally flavorful with each bite.... More

Their Italian food is the best I have ever eaten. I love this place so much that I have to visit it every week. Their Ravioli tomato is heavenly. Pizzas are delicious. Prices are friendly especially as the quality is great
