Our party of six

We were able to put the rainy night out of our minds after eating a great Italian meal at the La Dolce Vita, we started with salads (garden, and caprese) they were both huge and delicious. Three people in our party had the chicken parmesan on a bed of spaghetti,and one person had the basil pesto gnocchi with grilled chicken, another person had the pasta eggplant nappoli and the last person had the lasagna. The food was outstanding and the portions were huge,everyone enjoyed their meals and our server was excellent and very helpful.

I was surprised to find a nice Italian restaurant in the Outer Banks--it just wasn't something I was expecting to find, but what a pleasant surprise! The menu is extensive, and the food is delicious. The portions were large, plenty for dinner and for lunch the next day, the decor is more upscale than your usual beach place, but it's family-friendly and the waiters were really nice. I had the chicken saltimbocca, which was perfection, as was the pasta it was served with. Definitely a place I'll visit again when I'm next in the OBX!

Came here right as they opened for dinner and thre was already a line. Once seated (short wait), service was efficient. First we received a wonderful little loaf of rosemary bread with olive oil and pesto. I ordered the Italian onion soup which was a huge serving and delicious. I ordered the chicken parm-again huge serving and delicious.

SO RUDE!!! You know that resteraunt that thinks they're such hot stuff ? The one that feels they don't have to be service oriented ? Well, this is one of those places. Fortunately, we didn't stay to eat. We had enough attitude and rudeness from reception to know this was not the place for us. This is the first time I've ever left a review. That's how bad it was.

Stopped here for lunch and dinner during our week in Corolla. Lunch was fantastic - great sandwiches. The lasagna for dinner was really good too. Friendly service, very kid friendly. A bit on smaller side so longer wait for dinner but cool wine bar area to wait.
