“The only real italian restaurant in Lisboa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Italians do not usually love italian restaurants abroad. We are so proud about our italian food that we believe that only in Italy is possible to have excellent italian food.

When I found out La Dolce Vita in Expo I changed idea, there you can have the best hand made fresh pasta cooked just in front of you ravioli, tortellini, gnocchi, tagliatelle....

The pizza is also as the one you can have in Napoli.

All the staff in the kitchen is italian and the waiters are kind and nice.

You can't miss ravioli with balsamic vinegar and the best tiramisù and mascarpone with strawberries and chocolate!

“Perfect value for price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

pasta and deserts are just amazing. The pasta is hand-made and one can see a lady making it. Relatively cheap. Even my friends Italians like this restaurant a lot, which is not so common for them if it comes to Italian restaurants outside Italy.

“A bleak Italian restaurant with Portuguese service standards”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

Initially the expectations were high. We were said that the homemade pasta was worth it. Finally the place follows the same path of most of the restaurants in Lisbon. They bring you unordered dishes which aim to increase the bill. Staff does not build any will for customers to feel going back to the restaurant.

Moreover, live music gives no added value but the contrary. It might be disturbing if your idea is to have a dinner whilst enjoying a conversation with friends.

Artificial surroundings and discretionary billing (sometimes it will depend on your nationality) also contribute for the place not to be a must, although the restaurant might potentially aim to be an Italian reference in Lisbon.

Average price: 20€ p/p
