Its an amazing place,,,,I mean the Italian food is authentic. But remember the saying Good stuff not cheap and cheap stuff not good. Lol. We still enjoy returning there but only for my hubby and I.

Recommended by a friend at work. Made a reservation for 6 pm on a Sunday night. We
did not know what to expect from the exterior, but were very pleased once we went inside. It is a very comfortable setting and the waiters were very professional and helpful.
They gave us the menus and wine list and told us about the specials for the evening, and also answered several questions we had.
My wife had the Pompano with artichoke hearts, our friend had the pasta with the three meat sauce, and I opted for their Gnocchi with spicy salami with Black truffle cream. Each one of the dishes was cooked and served perfectly, and the wine that the
waiter suggested paired well with everything.
During the meal we had the pleasure of meeting the Chef/Owner Renato, and let him know how wonderful the meal was, and that we would put his restaurant on our list of regular stops.
We finished with a wonderful moist Tiramasu.
Everything considered this was one of the finest Italian meals and experience we have enjoyed in many years.
Thanks to everyone!!!

On our way back from Miami to watch a baseball game, we called to see if this property could accommodate our group of 4. We were not sure what to expect, and were pleased to say that all 4 of us had a great experience. The staff was very attentive and the food was excellent!! Thanks for making our Easter dinner a great memory for us!!

We walked in knowing nothing about the place but were very pleased. The homemade pasta was delicious, and the service was very attentive. There was no kids menu but the server went out of his way to help us find something that would work for our children. We would readily go back.

This was our second trip to La Dolce Vita and again they did not disappoint. This time we sat outside as we didn’t have a reservation. We started with a yummy arugula and homemade sundried tomatoes and cheese. Then I had homemade spaghetti with lamb ragu that was a nice balance of tomato cheese and tender meat. My daughter had gnocchi with salami and truffle cream sauce that was delectable with fluffy pillows of potato wrapped in a wonderful creamy sauce that was bursting with black truffle. Her boyfriend had the ravioli special that he practically licked the plate. We finished up with the to die for tiramisu and cappuccino.
Wonderful!
