The pizza was really good, thick bottom and lots of filling. The waitress was really friendly and everything went smooth. The evening we were there (Friday) there was a pianist playing.

I am a fan of good pizza and in the past thought the pizza at La Dolce Vita when it first opened was maybe the best pizza I had ever had anywhere. My other family members agreed. Definitely not so anymore. I place high standards on the basics: crust, tomato sauce, and cheese. Other toppings can be nice additions but... More

I'm sure I've had worse dining experiences, but off hand I don't remember any. Granted it's marathon weekend so the kitchen got slammed. That doesn't excuse the really awful service. We waited 90 minutes for our food and in the first hour we saw our waitress 3 times - when we ordered, 20 minutes later when she plopped some bread... More

Just three days prior to visiting La Dolce Vita I was in southern Italy eating seafood pizza. After visiting this charming restaurant on Roanoke Island and feasting on a delicious Pescatore pizza, I'm convinced that their chef should probably go visit those Italians and teach them how it's REALLY done. The service was phenominal and we'll be back for sure!

We enjoyed our meal - wait staff served us politely and promptly. Nice small salad served with both the veal parm and chicken picata. Small pieces of bread were offered with dipping oil - dry and crunchy - no bread plate. Beer and wine only. It was o.k., but we probably will not return unless we try their pizza.

We hosted a large party of family and friends for pizza and stromboli the evening before our daughter's wedding and were extremely happy with everything. The pizza (margarita, vegetarian and pepperoni) was great as was the stromboli. The house Chianti was fabulous. The staff was very helpful in advising us on the menu. Best of all was the warm and...

This place was AWESOME!!! The food was excellent, along with the presentation of both meals. We started off with a caprese salad which was delicious and looked beautiful on the plate. Homemade bread was served with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Salads were crisp and fresh with homemade Italian dressing and homemade balsamic dressing, My entree was veal marsala with... More

We arrived on Sunday and ate here on Thursday night. This was my favorite meal so far this week. I had the seafood pescatore with the red sauce and my spouse had the chicken cacciatore. They both came with salad and bread. The chicken cacciatore came with angel hair pasta pesto, which I tasted and it was quite good. We... More

I hope they still serve breakfast. It is great. Love the décor of the building. It blends in so well with the rest of Manito.

While the reviews were hit and miss, but ours was a miss. The young man that waited on us was 2 days in and it was not his fault the food was terrible. I got the chicken piccata and my husband the godfather pasta. Who serves pesto angel air with chicken piccata? Was supposed to be a lemon sauce, but... More
