Good service and high quality is what La Dolce Vita , an Italian restaurant in the Old Quarter, pride themselves on. Daily specials reflect what is available from imported goods and in season, as does the majority of the menu. Only the freshest, finest products are used and if they are not available, it's off the menu! Like all good Italian restaurants, most of the produce is imported from Italy: cheeses (including Parmesan and mozzarella), olive oil, tomatoes, etc.

Business set lunches run at VND 89,000, while dinner set menus cost VND 110,000 or VND 130,000, the latter gets you a glass of wine, porchetta or red salad and bistecca allo zafferano (Australian beef with mushrooms, saffron and cream). From the extensive menu, try the mixed crostini ($4.50), to start with, which includes a decent bruschetta, or mixed cold cuts  ($10).

From the homemade pastas, recommended are ravioli Luna D'Autunno, with pinekernel, raisin, walnut, Gorgonzola and cream, or pumpkin filled tortellini with butter and white truffle oil (both $7.50). Main courses featuring scampi, veal, Australian beef, squid, chicken etc, run from $8-11. Don't miss the sinfully fresh tiramisu. dishes can be washed down with around 40 fine wines imported from Italy, France or the New World. Italian fruit liquors are complimentary after the meal, or indulge in an expresso, Amaretto or Sambucca. Interestingly enough, La Dolce Vita has no pizzas on the menu yet: for now it concentrates on what it does best: pasta. Orders are taken until around minight and delivery service is also available.
