Excellent Italian cuisine

Nicely decorated classic Italian restaurant. Freshly baked pizzas in wood oven. Open kitchen. Friendly staff. Typical ambience. Wide range of dishes and wines. Moderate prices. Good spot to come back every several weeks.

I love Italian food and prefer to eat in Italian restaurants whenever possible. I ate at La Dolce Vita three times during my stay in Genk. On the last occasion I suffered from a severe stomach upset four hours after eating there.

This was just around the corner from the ECU Hotel and it was a great recommendation. The staff were very welcoming and we had a delightful waitress called Silvia. The recommendations were perfect and the food was really tasty and beautifully presented. We had the house red wine and this perfectly complimented the meal in every way. Try the prawns... More

After the good reviews on tripadvisor, I had great expectations. Was very dissapointed after it receiving a really moderate, rather poor tasting meal for a quite high price (most pastas between 15 & 20 euros). Really no idea why this is such a high rated venue, or maybe I had bad luck with my choice of food. Service and atmosphere... More

We had a pizza here and it was just plain, the service was bad, we had to wait a very long time and were put together like sardines. We never went back and we will not.

Looks like a takeaway from the outside but has a restaurant at the rear. The food is excellent especially the pizza. The restaurant is constructed like an Italian courtyard with small balconies with tables. I may seem a bit over the top in decor but well worth going to for the food.

Ate a full Italian meal around 10 p.m. It was delicious pizza, pasta, and beer. The ambiance was buzzing, and lively, with a hacienda feeling.

Long wait to get seated. Pasta was good. Veal was tough. Waited 25 minutes for my bill. Finally got up and paid. Will not return. Overall a poor dining experience. I will not return and would not recommend it.

La Dolce Vita is known for its pizza. They also offer various types of pasta, seafood and/or meat dishes, and of course there is a selection of appetisers and desserts. They focus on Puglian food (Puglia is an Italian region). Tried several dishes here: the pizza is fantastic, the scampi are very tasty, the steak was below average. The prices... More
