A nice discovery food was very good to excellent and service was very good. We did do a take out but sat at the small Bar and spoke to the staff and other guests. Nice friendly place.

Stopped here for a late lunch in Corolla. Food was very good. I had an Italian sandwich and my friend had a rosemary chicken salad on ciabatta bread. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Wait staff was friendly and did not have to wait long for our meals. Music was at a pleasant level so that we could have... More

Okay, when I think of what some one from another country envisions what an American's dinner plate looks like, welcome to La Dolce Vita. It's been awhile since we've dined here. Friends made the reservation. If you are on a serious budget and want to save money and your partner happens to order the same as you do...well then, you... More

We went here with a party of 5 adults and 2 kids. The service was friendly and the meal was delicious. The marinara sauce was sooo good, the pasta was fresh and the shrimp grilled perfectly. No complaints at all and I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for great Italian food.

This is one of the best restaurants in Corolla! Their food is incredible; it would be hard to be beat!!!! Every time we vacation at the OBX, we make sure to stop by for dinner at least once.

We visited for late lunch on Monday 09/26 and were so pleased with the taste and quality of the food. The pasta in a rosa sauce was so tasty without being heavy and the pizza (Nova Siri - Meatballs, spinach & garlic) was one of the best pizzas we have had. We highly recommend La Dolce Vita to anyone looking... More

Two couples visited on a Monday night in late September, and the small restaurant was pretty full, so I'm glad we made reservations even in off season. Bruschetta appetizer was delicious, as were the entrees that came at a somewhat leisurely pace. We were in no hurry, though - we were on vacation after all. Our server was friendly and... More

What a fantastic Italian restaurant!! Friendly staff, great server (thanks, Kelly!), the most amazing white sangria and a fabulous White Pizza! The crust was some of the best we've had! Though a bit on the pricey side, it was all well worth it. And we'd go back again when making another trip to Corolla!

Excellent thin crust pizza at a reasonable price from a real Italian restaurant. Better than other pizza only "joints" in the area. Can't wait to go back for dinner.

My husband and I ate at this Italian Restaurant and it exceeded our expectations. I ordered the Crab & Shrimp a la Penne Vodka dish and it was delicious! The seafood was fresh and I had crab in every bite! My husband ordered the Veal Parm (as he does everywhere he has the opportunity) and he was very pleased with... More
