Description: Established in 1986, La Dolce Vita has now, more than ever, become a popular rendezvous with taste and flavors from Italy. From pasta to pizza, the recipes specially created are not only relishing but also provide you with a fascinating insight into Italian cuisine- a culinary tour that takes you deep into the heart of italy for the mere price of a meal. This makes La Dolce Vita one of the few places, this side of the Mediterranean, where you get a savour authentic Italian cooking in a typical Italian ambiance. The excellent selection of wines from old world to new world will accompany not only the pasta and pizza but also the steaks hence making your dinning experience a memorable one. The strong Italian essence at la Dolce Vita is matched by an equally strong tradition os providing excellent services to its guests- a practice we are proud to have maintained and perfected over the years.So, if you are in for a truly exciting date with Italy in Kathmandu, there's only one sensible choice, La Dolce Vita...a delighted welcome to the sweet life.

“... very nice balcony for your happy hour in Thamel ...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Looking foor Italian food in Thamel this is as reasonable as it gets in Nepal. Do not order their focaccia as an entree! You'll spoil your apettite. It was too much. Taste was good but it was a meal on its own!
The personnel was very friendly and forthcoming. They have, apart from a really nice rooftop terrace, the perfect Thamel happy hour spot. A balcony just about in the center of Thamel. Be quick though, there are only a few places that give you this front row experience looking over the coming and going of your fellow travellers. Have fun!

“Stop for some delicious food and relax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

I must pay a visit each time I go to Kathmandu. The restaurant is very good, I love the terrace on the rooftop but also the internal rooms are nice. Good pizza, bruschette, pasta, yak cheese and wine. Absolutely go for it

“Good Italian at a Good Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

This restaurant is across the street from the Ambassador Garden Home and Kathmandu Guest House. Nice decor and good food. Not a five star property, but a nice diversion once you're tired of Nepali cuisine.

“What a little gem!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

This little restaurant is fantastic! It's a little above the average 'back packer' budget, but well worth the few extra £! The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated (Italian style) and the service is very good. The food is excellent - the best meal we had on our 5 month trip! Treat yourself and GO!!
