Was really excited to eat here after reading the reviews. Asked the server what was good and he recommended the baguette and calzone, so i had the baguette and a cappuccino, my boyfriend had a pizza. We were both pretty disappointed.. the bacon baguette was surprisingly bland.. the pizza was just so-so too. Cappuccino was decent but certainly not anything... More

After all the positive reviews here and this being the #1 on Lombok had to try this out myself to unfortunately find out that for me it wasn't that good or special. Decent prices and nice to have something else for a change but tried the calzone and a baguette and both tasted like (and probably had been) lying there... More

Best calzone I've ever had. Hands down. This is more of a lunch place than a dinner place, and most of their calzones are gone by 2pm so get there early!

I tried pizza and baguettes and both are really good. The price is ok, considering the quality of the food.

Best coffee we found on Gili T, just wish we found it earlier! Run by Italian guy (Francesco) who takes pride in his work. Great pastries and pizza and very well priced. Fed me and three boys for 100,000rp. Shuts early at 5ish, not open Mondays.

Salami baguette, they melt the cheese and warm the bun, the mayonnaise is so good and you can add more meat. Thank you Francesco and Francesca! I wish I could have a baguette right now!

Just placed on the North side of the Art Market, this hidden wonder is a gem. If you look for the best cappuccino ever on a Monday, you'll be disappointed as they are closed all Monday. We came back on Tuesday and the coffee, custard filled pastry and fried filled bread was fantastic. The Italian couple were the quintessential cutest... More

Loved this cafe - amazing coffee, both the normal cappuccino & the iced cappuccino. We had the Tiramisu and Crema Pasticcera (cream filled croissant) and it was oh.so.GOOD! What made the visit most enjoyable was our chat with the owners, Francesco & Francesca. Got a real education on the croissant making process...they were delightful, so take the time to chat... More

Every morning I have the same ritual. I enter Dolce Vita and get myself a Tuna Baguette :D. The value for money is truly good as they make their bread themselves. They also make good pizzas and croissants. I really recommend this place!
