La Dolce Vita is a firm contender for serving the finest pizzas in Abidjan as well as having one of the fastest services. You can usual find one or two locals at the bar as you come in, but the widest space is reserved for the ventilated restaurant area. For those who prefer air-conditioned, there’s a wood-panelled inner room, and both areas have several television screens that make this a particularly good place to enjoy that other Italian passion, football. The crowd is a healthy mix of Ivorian families, romantic couples and ex-pat groups, and you can usually find at least one table of genuine Italians, which underlines the authenticity of the food. Diners will frequently be offered a complementary after dinner drink. For those who prefer to eat at home, the restaurant delivers to most of the city.
