When we are in Athens, this is our "go to" restaurant for a fancy night out. The atmosphere is fun, the wait staff is knowledgeable, and the food is wonderful! I don't read Italian, so reading the wine list to find one that I like would be impossible, but the wait staff understands the wine and if I tell them... More

I visited La Dolce Vita while on a business trip to Athens. My colleague and I decided to share some dishes in order to experience more of the menu than we could have on our own. We started with the Piatto di Formaggi, which came with three marmalades (red pepper, green pepper, and onion) and 6 cheeses. My personal favorite... More

I think a lot of people don't know about this place, because it is upstairs on the second level of the building, and very near a more well-known Italian restaurant on Broad St. The food is delicious. We started with a charcuterie combination as well as some cheeses. It was enough to have made a meal, and was complemented with... More

This is by far the best Italian restaurant in Athens and one of the best overall in the city. Stefano is a great guy and gets every detail right. The food is authentic and very consistent. Wine list is right on the money with great red and white from Italy. The specials are creative and well thought out and never... More

We originally set out to eat at a neighboring restaurant, but got stuck on a wait list and skipped. Aggravated, we set out to find somewhere new. Ended up walking in La Dolce Vita and what a great surprise! Up the staircase from the sidewalk is a quaint, cozy place that seats about 60 people total. Although we didnt have... More

Four of us were out for dinner before a concert and chose La Dolce Vita because we'd all eaten there before and had great separate experiences. Personally, I've had fish, poultry and pork dishes at this restaurant and each has been excellent. Good, single page, menu with many good choices. Good daily specials. Excellent wine list featuring good wines that... More

Excellent service! The food is delicious and one can tell the freshness of the ingredients. A relatively small town but with big city, high quality and satisfying line of menu. We will come back again. I advise advanced reservation. And of course, dessert....yum O!

Great upstairs venue over Broad on Athens--nice older tuscany style atmosphere. So I ordered the Diver scallops with tortellini, and received a few overcooked teenise bay scallops with some rather divine mounds of ravioli not tortellini. I advised the waiter that I'd grown up on Long island, lived by the Great South bay (and was once married to a shell... More
