When La Dolce Vita opened its doors in 1989 it was a game changer in the Valley bringing genuine Italian cuisine and sophistication to one location right in Thamel! It has maintained its high quality over the decades.

My friend and I visited here during our free time one weekend and were so happy with the environment and the food. The customer service was fantastic. It is a little pricey, but definitely worth it.

This place is one of the best for pizza's and pasta's in Nepal. And the rooftop in the heart of Thamel is a nice place. However, I find it quite expensive.
