We were wary going here having read the reviews but we were so pleasantly surprised. It was also our second wedding anniversary as per previous review but our meals were fantastic. We had our child with us and the staff were very accommodating and friendly to him and us. We had an outside tabke with the heater on. The bread... More

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

Had lunch in the sun at La Dolce Vita. The food was well priced, arrived promptly and was of good quality. A relaxing location over looking Bulcock Beach. The waitress could have smiled a little more but overall a good experience

Great central location looking out to the Pumicestone Passage, friendly service, willingness to adjust menu for my dietary needs, locally owned (means they have a stake in providing you with an enjoyable experience), and reasonably priced and tasty meals.

Deciding a take-away pizza was the easiest option for dinner, as close by our accommodation having stumbling upon LDV earlier that afternoon & thought we would give them a go. A quick sway-ray down the steps & a pleasant chap to take our order, we were not disappointed. The Margherita & Calabrese pizzas were very tasty indeed. The restaurant was... More

We just ate here in high expectation for our second wedding anniversary. Hate to say it but if our experience here was a reflection of our marriage, there will not be another anniversary. The service was non existent despite it being fairly quiet when we arrived. It took forty minutes to receive an entree of bread and dip. Constantly had... More

Our favorite restaurant was fully booked so we thought we would give La Dolce Vita a try, very glad we did! The food was spot on, we sat overlooking the beach, service was quick, price was reasonable. If I had to pick one negative it would be that the very attentive and courteous waitress's had a limited knowledge of english... More
