Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The food in general os very good and the place is nice. Not giving 5/5 is more about how it is done. About the food I must say that the pizza was the best I’ve had outside Naples. The only thing that I do not...understand why you have Napoletean pizza and some form of so called pizza. Discard the rest and stick with the real thing. It is good. The downside was the lack of undestanding on timeing. Your menu is long, do not rush to the table after 18 seconds. And if you do, save the situation by taking the order on drinks. More severe instance was that my pizza came right after the starter arrived. Not nice. My friend also had to wait for her food long after mine arrived. At the end the clock turned around. We had to wait for the plates to been taken away. We had to wait for the dessert order. We had to wait for the check. Also my dessert arrived long before my friend’s. The food is good, timeing is not. It is a restaurant, not a clock so 4/5.More

We went out quite late and were happy that the place still accepted us after 23:00 even though it was closing at midnight. House wine was ok and the Ceasar salad portion was big and tasty! And we got complimentary bread! We liked the place...so much, we went there next day again! Pizza and kinds of pasta were the choices this time and they did not disappointed again! I will go there again next time I am in Tartu!More

On our first evening in Tartu, and looking for somewhere nice to eat after spending much of the day travelling, my partner and I decided on La Dolce Vita. It was a great decision: proper Italian pizza and delicious ice cream. Really relaxed ambience too....And the waitress told us we’d really cheered her up with our positive energy! Would totally recommend.More

There has not been a bad visit and we've been there many times. If you love Italian then this is the place to be. The food is always authentic, outstanding and delicious. Absolutely love the ample varieties of pasta. The service has also been superb...each visit, even when the place is really crowded and it often is. We will definitely visit again! :)More

Excellent Italian restaurant near the city center. The facade in fact was not so temptating, looked like basic pizzeria, but the restaurant was much more. Full of families, students and business people. The food we had was excellent. We both had seafood, me with taggliatelle,...my wife with risotto. Also the wines were good ones. We got very good service from young trainee.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.
