After a serious day of Chrimbo shopping, we had the pleasure of dining at this great restaurant. Staff were attentive and friendly from the moment we stepped through the door. I had the set Christmas menu (option 2) starting with crispy squid with coconut prawns, whilst the family shared garlic bread and olives. As all plates were spotless after finishing,... More

I came here recently with my boyfriend for dinner and had a lovely meal. I had the calamari to start and fillet steak for main and both were beautifully cooked and tender. The menu isn't cheap but the quality is very good. The service was excellent - very attentive and even recommended bars to visit after the meal. The restaurant... More

Went here on Saturday night just gone for a last minute meal, luckily enough, they were able to seat my girlfriend and I. I will warn you, the tables are very close to each other, so if you're looking for secluded and private, this won't be the place for you. However, with everyone else being involved in their own tables... More

Decided to give this place a go for a late lunch on Friday after reading some great comments and it surpassed my expectations. Was greeted with a warm welcome as soon as we opened the door and the service remained friendly, attentive yet unobtrusive throughout. Focaccia flat bread as a shared starter was light and tasty and the smoked haddock... More

As the title suggest's i've had a few pizzas from here as well as the courtyard which is owned by the same people I am guessing due to the identical menus.. and each time they have been very nice. There are a few other thing's i've had such as the Mixed grill which wasn't really the best and cost over... More

From the moment we walked through the door we felt we would enjoy our evening! We love busy bustling restaurants where you don't have to whisper and this was just that. The staff were very welcoming and attentive without being overbearing and the service and food were first class - my only challenge was the menu......what to have as it... More

Visited here finally as part of a compromise. My partner wanted pizza; I didn't, so we decided to venture somewhere that sold pizza and non-pizza items instead of ordering a takeaway. I have often avoided visiting here, as it has a reputation of being incredibly expensive; our spontaneous visit proved that assumption in our eyes. The drinks especially were very... More

Visited Dolce Vita last night as a large group to celebrate my birthday. Food was superb, service was second to none and prices very reasonable, especially for the quality of the food and service. Book in advance as the restaurant always seems to be busy! Will most definitely be returning.

We went for dinner on a Saturday night, they had a few large tables in, we were in for my friends birthday and were put on a table in the back corner - the service we received was not good enough and I won't be going back for dinner service. I have been to Dolce Vita a few times now... More
