Good Italian stile place with good Italian food. The place looks very similar to the places I've visited in Italy. Pizzas and tapas are very good.

Our friends recommended this place and spoke very highly of it. As we entered, we loved the feel of this Italian restaurant and we were expecting great pizza and pasta. The pizza dough was soggy and we don’t think it was even fresh pasta. However,...More

I´m not sure. The restaurant is a quality place so I would assume that they do have gluten free options. They have a contact address where you can place your question about this issue.

La Dolce Vita is an Italian restaurant which opened its doors in 2003. Its Italian owners serve up traditional dishes from their country. Its pizzas are made in a wood-fired oven which is unique in Tartu, and there is a wide range of pasta dishes to choose from. Some pasta is imported from Italy, while the rest is made on site. The menu also features traditional meat dishes. The quality of La Dolce Vita's menu is reflected in its simple, authentic components: Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, tomatoes and olive oil. In the summer months you can enjoy the warmer weather on the restaurant's terrace. The restaurant itself is close to a beautiful park, which is the perfect place to enjoy the gelato (Italian ice cream) that the restaurant offers.
