Description
LADOLCEVITA Italian Restaurant in Souk Waqif
When it comes to romance, lusty Italian food is a tasty aphrodisiac that exude contemporary elegance, from trattoria with old-hometown traditions to eateries featuring innovations of modern gastronomies, in the back side hideaways of Souq Waqif there lies the Typical" Ristorante Italiano Home-made cuisine called LADOLCEVITA where Lovers of a certain age or couples who are into Gilded Age dining experiences will be enraptured by Mamma Giuliana’s Menu of the day, besides special treatment to all Customers .
Open since 2009 (and still run by the same family after all these years). The interiors still remain the same with the Italian Dolce Vita Fellini’s touch. It's a captivating environment, warmed by candles and dimmed light, shelves of wood with variety of pastas, daily flower arrangement on our Espresso bar (best coffee in town). Happily, it's not all about looks.
The kitchen turns out impeccable homeland cuisine of the owners by two Italia
