Service was slow and most dishes, for an Italian restaurant, are a bit on the expensive side for street dinning.

We went to this restaurant as it was under our apartment building and nice and close. It was not busy as it was late July, so you would expect the service to be good (and it was). We had a great filet steak dish cooked exactly as ordered, and a chicken breast stuffed with goat cheese on risotto - also... More

We sat down as a party of nine. We were treated with courtesy and each of us truly enjoyed our food. Superbly presented we would return in a flash! Three of our friends were from Germany, (Frankfurt & Berlin.) They too commented on the high standard of the food. Lovely setting with excellent view. Highly recommend !

After a terrible dining experience elsewhere, my husband and I visited La Dolce Vita for coffee and dessert. This place is wonderful. We were greeted with wonderful customer service immediately, the desserts and drinks were delicious and the atmosphere was vibrant. Will definitely be back. Many thanks!

A wonderful way to start your day. The staff are very friendly and even had the soccer playing for us. The breakfast menu is the usual standard affair and very good.

This place has a fabulous spot right opposite the beach. Unfortunately we witnessed staff being rude to an older woman who was a customer there. One waitress yelled at her to leave. Another waitress told us that the woman is an alcoholic. Either way, it was disturbing to witness. They also pour very small glasses of wine. One waitress was... More
