I've been here now over 10 times and never disappointed. There aren't that many tables & it's like being in someone's living room so it's always advisable to book. The service had always been friendly & food wonderful. The tiramisu is to die for & I think it's better than a certain famous chef restaurant in London

Very nice service Although one of the waitresses had been smoking around the back as you approached the restaurant. Food OK but the service and venue made it nice

This is a little gem on Narborough Road. My partner and myself always visit on a special occasion, it's full of charm, cosy interior and, most importantly, a truly fantastic steak! If you like old style Italian restaurants, with a warm romantic atmosphere, and great food, this is the place for you.

This is a small restaurant which you could easily pass without noticing. It is so good it doesn't need a fancy facade to advertise itself. It is small inside but very welcoming and comfortable. The food is absolutely excellent. The service is superb and very friendly and the atmosphere in the restaurant is therefore relaxed and welcoming. I have eaten... More

Hello, If you would like to speak to us about your experience then ring 0116 2540006. I am not the chef and all the waiting staff are female therefore we are confused as to who that could be. My daughter has not been to us since her birthday in January as she is away at university and we can assure... More

A group of us went there recently and we had a lovely meal, all piping hot and exceedingly tasty. We had a variety of dishes and not one was found to be wanting. Good value for money also!

This was probably our 6th visit to Dolce Vita in three years, returning, as we have always enjoyed the food and intimacy of the venue. On booking the previous day my partner had asked for an 8.15 booking as he was travelling back from London. He was asked if we could make it 8pm instead so he said we would... More

Thanks for your review of La Dolce Vita. The reason that I mentioned I had been on holiday was due to the fact that I usually take the majority of the bookings. The waitress unfortunately made the mistake of booking the ladies for Friday when they had said Saturday. There was only two of you but I gave you a... More

Not the fanciest restaurant I have ever been to but food was great, service very friendly and excellent value for money! Atmosphere of a little bistro.

One of the best meals my partner and I have had out in a long time. The waitress was wonderful, the food was beautiful and the atmosphere was warm and friendly. I would without a doubt recommend, and we'll definitely be coming back. Having worked in catering I'm hard to impress, and I can fault nothing.
