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

Good menu at sensible prices. Wine a bit pricey but decent quality. Some staff a bit lacking in charm but overall a good meal every time I've been here and will always come back when staying in reading.

Our family and friends have been visiting Dolca vita for 15 years or more and we always have a warm welcome . Vanna and her team go to great lengths to make sure the food and wine are to our liking offering choices and recommending dishes that we would like. The food and service is as I said in the... More

A good menu with Mediterranean choices a la carte and a set menu. We were a party of 8 and the place was very busy but service was good. The staff are friendly and welcoming and did not hesitate to help and advise a friend who is gluten intolerant. Every starter, main and dessert was described as great or delicious.... More
