I had lots of company for the holiday. I made a reservation for 13 on Saturday night at 8 pm. There was not an empty table in the restaurant and yet our service was nothing short of perfect!! Dinner was delicious and all the servers were pleasant and took great care of us! An amazing experience!

Went there because of ratings and close to our hotel. Amazing food. We had 4 different pasta dishes and they were all GREAT. Pastas are all home(Hand)-made there. Very busy even on Monday night and rightfully so.

Small intimate restaurant with very good food and service. Prices are more $$$ than $$, but I would expect that given the quality of the food and service at La Dolce Vita. Food and service rivals any Italian restaurant where I have dined. Greeted by the owner who welcomed us and explained the daily specials (all sounded delicious). I went... More

Had reservations for a Friday night at 8:30 but did not need them. I would recommend that you do make them though because the restaurant did get very busy. We were greeted by an extremely handsome Italian speaking gentleman who provided us with menus and asked us if we were ready to place a drink order. Drinks and our server... More

This is a very popular restaurant here with locals. The food is good and the service is good but you would expect more for the prices. This is not a $$-$$$ type of restaurant but way more expensive. Now you are warned.
