Well.. the only good thing I can say about this place is that it is very cheap. But other than that.. no bueno. My gelato/ice cream had water dripping off it as if has melted and then been re-frozen.

Dolce Vita was on our way from our San Blas neighborhood to Plaza de Armas at 366 Santa Catalina Ancha. We enjoyed a cone or cup of delicious gelato each time we passed by. They have some very unique flavors (many different every day) to experiment with and the staff was very patient with our tortured indecision! As in the... More

This is still an ice cream place, but it's now called Dolce Vita. It was nice and cool inside and prettily decorated. Interestingly, it's in Peru, but the decor was unmistakably Egyptian, the ice cream was Italian and the music was American 1980s top 40 hits. I had the apple ice cream and my husband had coca, both were great.... More
