We used to love going to Dolce Vita, good food and decent prices for lunch. But now, the service is so slow! An hour to get a salad. Twice now we have had to leave because after 65 minutes we still had no food and it wasn't even busy. While I like the food, unless there is an improvement in... More

The Dolce Vita does good pizzas, their lunchtime specials are always good value and the Saturday all day breakfast is a lifesaver. Generally good all round with... More

I first visited this place last year for a business lunch and enjoyed it. There were Malawian dishes on the menu for my colleagues who don't consider a meal a meal unless it contains nsima. Upon my return this year, the prices had gone up considerably and there is no more Malawian cuisine. The vegetable curry I ordered was tasty... More
