Highly recommended!

Wonderful little Italian restaurant in Caloundra, down by the water. We went on a cool, rainy night, but this didn't dampen our experience. And we even sat outside! The staff were excellent and the food was absolutely delicious. We are locals and will definitely be back.

Dinner here last night after a work conference. Food was delicious - the starter (Turkish bread and chef's dips) was enormous, we actually couldn't finish it! I had the pollo avocado for main, minus macadamia, and my colleague had the same but with the macadamia. We both thoroughly enjoyed the meal, and the wine!

Popped in one afternoon after a nice walk on the beach for a coffee. Beautiful view and lovely staff. The outdoor table area is fully undercover and glass windows so protected from the weather. I stopped by at 4pm and they were not serving food but still nice for a drink

We enjoyed the Moreton Bay Bug special of the day and it was delicious. The service was friendly and we enjoyed the casual atmosphere of the restaurant. We will be returning next time we are in Caloundra

I have eaten here before and it doesn't let you down. The location is good, the service is very attentive and the food is good quality. The menu has afair range with some interesting specials. The price is very competitive! Ask for the bugs!

I'm a local who has eaten here every now and againfor as long as it has been in operation. The place is great, staff really nice and setting is amazing. It is real Italian food (as in like what I've had in Italy). I put this in he category of a special night out, reserved for Birthdays and other occasions.... More

Everyone thought the food was good however the service not so. Waitress spilled my drink and walked away and I had to ask for her to come back and clean it up. They brought the wrong meals out to begin with and then bought our deserts out at different times. Everyone had finished theirs before I got mine so I... More

La Dolce Vita has a great little spot on the beach but also undercover. The staff are really friendly and the food is really nice. A good spot for a quick lunch after a swim at the beach!
