Great view, service, food and coffee. We picked restaurant as had vegetarian option with polenta toast that appealed, add bacon for those non-vego's. Great location overlooking the beach, service was quick efficient and paying the bill comes with joke from the boss. Meals were delicious, fresh and appetising.

Dinner here with 3 friends. Food was great. 3 serves of the squid says it was great. 3 Reef and beefs were cooked exactly as ordered. As for sweets the blood orange sorbet and lime was fantastic. Our waiting staff were great, the Italian girl we had was cute and professional. All in all a great night. Recommended.

Just visited for lunch today ordered the garlic cream bugs and a bolognese tortellini. We've had the bugs 2 or 3 times before , normally served on a bed of beautiful garlic cream risotto, today it was served on a lemon zest saffron risotto which was tasteless & the bugs were over cooked and tough. The lunch time special of... More

We have eaten at La Dolce Vita several times. It is one of our favourite restaurants on the coast. The service is very friendly and efficient (rare on the Sunshine Coast!) and the food has always been exceptional. We have been in peak season and off season and we have found it to be consistently good.

We have dined at La Dolce Vita twice in the past three months and on both occasions cannot speak highly enough of the quality and taste of the food and of the unwavering attention of the staff. This is a wonderful restaurant with a very diverse Italian menu and an incredible care and concern for its patrons. Engage with the... More

Food at this restaurant is excellent. All diners in our party were very happy with their meals. Staff were attentive with regular visits to the table to check all was well. Lack of ambiance is all that prevented me from giving 5 stars - clean and well presented but we were at the back of the indoor section which was... More

Visited at 8pm Tuesday night with my partner. We shared the arancini balls to share. They were delicious. For mains, I got the polo avocado penne and my partner got a item from the special menu - strips of steak marinated in red wine with spaghetti mushroom and peas. His meal was more flavoursome than mine but they were both... More

Stayed at the Rumba Resort for 3 nights and expected the food in a restaurant located under the resort to be typical "tourist fare of OK, but nothing special". I'll start with the "needs improvement" from my three visits to La Dolce Vita over the course of two days. I purchased a much needed coffee on my first afternoon in... More
