Had a family dinner here on a Friday night, which is quite busy in the city. Wait staff were terrific, nothing was too much trouble and the meals, desserts and drinks arrived in a timely fashion. No complaints whatsoever about the service, surprised to see negative reviews. The food was fabulous. Diners had pizza and pasta, pizza was as good... More

yes the food was yummy. I had crumbed Barra and a Riesling. But the service was disappointing. Cutlery did not come out with our orders and we had to ask for it. Post dinner - our coffees came but not the tea one of my colleagues ordered - we had to ask for it. It just lacked that oomph to... More

Service took forever and the wait staff looked sad and mopey, as if they didnt want to be there. After waiting a while to have our orders to be taken the drinks took forever, one being just an Iced Coffee (not worth the $7 for milk, coffee and ice cream) and the other just a Lipton Iced tea. Food was... More

My partner and I had breakfast there on a public holiday. Normally I'm happy to pay the 15% surcharge for food on public holidays but not at La Dolce Vita. Staff were unenthusiastic and appeared to be bored. The tables were dirty with crumbs and old cups on them. Our breakfast took 45 minutes to come out and after 50... More

We had a large group of 20 of us for a birthday party & the staff looked after every single person exceptionally well with fantastic food. It's a little expensive but to handle a large group so well when the restaurant is still fairly busy made for a lovely experience all round.

Family really enjoyed the food, I had Salt and pepper calamari for entrée and Spaghetti Marinara before we went to Suncorp. I like the idea of draught beer on tap and my wife was impressed with wine selection. The service from waiters was excellent and will be definitely going back.

We visited La Dolce Vita for dessert after dining elsewhere. The waitstaff were friendly, but slow. We only got menus when we managed to flag down a waiter to ask whether there was table service (there is, but we were beginning to have doubts). It then took 20 minutes for our order to be taken. The Italian hot chocolate was... More

A Friendly waiter took us to our table and we ordered salads that were nice, tasty and fresh.Not really exceptional but nothing to complain about, not great value for money but within reason.
