Weren't disappointed

Read the reviews and booked here, thoroughly delighted with a 3 course lunch. No rush, extremely friendly, 2 hours went without us noticing because it was so enjoyable. Absolutely delicious and the really good house red wine goes well with the pasta. Will be back to sample the wider evening menu.

An amazing evening spent with my family at la dolce vita. We had three starters consisting of the best prawn cocktail I have ever had, my nan had the carpaccio for the first time and said the meat was sublimely matched by a rocket and Parmesan salad, the chef was very happy to cater for me and my partner by...

La Dolce Vita is an absolute hidden gem. Not many people I speak to about it even know of it's existence which adds slightly to its charm. I have been three times in total and the food has been exceptional on each visit. The menu changes regularly and always provides an ample selection of inspired dishes. The food itself cannot...

Dined here for the 6 course set menu. Food was beautifully presented and all tasted amazing. Friendly staff were helpful and welcoming. The chefs coming out after to ask about our experience was a lovely touch. Would definitely recommend and will visit again soon.

Authentic Italian food - if you like Italian food you will love this restaurant. Owned by a great Italian host. The traditional menu is small but very well cooked and extremely tasty.

We just love the food, the atmosphere, and great service at this restaurant. Our Italian neighbour is an amazing cook, and she recommended this restaurant to us - saying it was the only place in town she would consider eating at - we now know why. We just cannot fault it.

My partner & I spent New Years Eve at this restaurant & we loved it. We had the 8 course set menu & opted to have the wine to complement each course which was a winner. The food was excellent- fresh, tasty, creative, authentic and the wine fully complemented each dish. The service is also excellent. Friendly, polite and courteous.... More

I was looking forward to visiting this restaurant based on the reviews on TripAdvisor but felt sadly disappointed with the place. The food was ok but didn´t feel it was particularly any better or special in any way, so just felt it was very expensive for what it was. The service was ok as well but again nothing special. Both...
