Good food, good value and good service

We had dinner here having read some of the reviews and it was a great choice. Everything we had read was true. Lots of choice on the menu, freshly cooked. Great service with friendly staff and at a good price.

my wife and I had an early supper here yesterday. I haven;t been to Dolce Vita in about 9 years and whilst it wasn't overly busy we were greeted by a friend;y waiter.

Selecting dishes from the daily specials and the main menu to have both the best of both worlds, something new and an old favourite dish. The food was fresh filling and tasty and the service was attentive and informal without being pushy. Highly recommended,... More

They are always so friendly, accommodating and relaxed. Great atmosphere, food is always wonderful. A superb menu, great variety and excellent fish choices. Something for everyone and very reasonable prices. They also have a very good wine list. A place to visit, with friends, family or work colleagues - lots of space. You must visit here, as I'm sure you... More

I love this restaurant! The standard menu has a great variety of dishes but I like the set menus which always have something new and extra tasty to try (at a great price too). The staff are friendly and attentive and I always enjoy a visit here.
