Great venue

We went to this restaurant the other night before the movies. The gentleman who looked after us was very attentive. We told him we didn't have a lot of time but he didn't rush us. I chose a pasta dish from the specials menu but asked for the type of pasta to be changed. No problem. It had a... read more

While in Caloundra for a long weekend, we were searching for a nice restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary, we found "La Dolce Vita". The special, Sand Crab Risotto " caught my attention so we eventually decided to eat here. My husband, who does not really eat a lot of seafood chose this meal as well. Both of us loved... More

La Dolce Vita provides generous portions of reasonably good food, but the pizzas, if you're used to more classic Italian versions are heavy on both base and toppings, so you'll need a big appetite to get through one. Coffee was very good, though, and the friendly service deserves a special mention.

This has to be one of the best breakfasts I've had in a while. The bacon was crispy (you don't get it like that in a lot of places). The service was excellent the waitresses were helpful and friendly and nothing was a chore. We really enjoyed our breakfast. The views over the water were great too.

I have often walked past this little cafe, but after checking out their brekky menu the other day, I decided to give it a whirl. And I'm so glad I did! From the moment I arrived I was made to feel welcome – I was even offered to sit at a table for 6 because it was close to the... More

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
