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... read 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!

The food was good, they accommodated our table of 9 easily. The next night we ordered a take away from them and they were closed to the public but still managed to do our order which I was so pleased about. They go above and beyond and I can recommend them.

Gamberi alio olio pepperoncini, absolutely exquisite. Tortellini carbonara delicately beautiful. Thank you for making our special weekend in Caloundra even more memorable. Thank you.
