Furthest thing from italian food you will find!

Dined here on a saturday nite. We didnt ordered pizza which turned out to be a costly mistake. I had the squid risotto while my partner had the spaghetti bolognese. Both dishes were in edible. No flavour whatsoever. Parmesean cheese couldnt save the pasta. The best thing about this restaurant is... read more

Dined here on a saturday nite. We didnt ordered pizza which turned out to be a costly mistake. I had the squid risotto while my partner had the spaghetti bolognese. Both dishes were in edible. No flavour whatsoever. Parmesean cheese couldnt save the pasta. The best thing about this restaurant is the free bread basket.

I had dinner twice at Dolce Vita, first time was back in 2012 and 2nd time was in Feb 2015, I ordered pizza on both occasions, so did my partner. Their menu is very diverse which can please anybody. The pizzas are very delicious although quite pricey. Don't be put off by the restaurant's old decor. I was a bit... More

Ok, we chose this restaurant because it was right next door to our hotel. ( Le Lagon). And quite frankly, the restaurant doesn't look like much from the street. but the food was excellent and reasonably priced. The cuisine is Italian, but you can get a steak.... And I did! It was delicious and generously sized. my wife had a... More

Walked up for dinner with no booking and got a table straight away. Awesome salad and wood fired pizza. As a wood fired oven owner i asked to see the oven which was no problem. Very friendly and good food.

La Dolce Vita is next to Le Lagon hotel, and serves good food in a friendly atmosphere. We had a couple of means there and thought it was OK for a reasonably priced meal of consistent quality. The pizzas are cooked in a wood-fired oven and are excellent. The home-made lasagne is also quite good. The salads are good but... More

This restaurant is unassuming from the outside, but don't be fooled, the food is delicious. We were served immediately and our food arrived very quickly. The only downside is that one of the waitress was clearly not in the mood, she dropped our food on the table and walked off, rolled her eyes when we asked for something to be... More

From the outside, you may not expect anything great from this restaurant, but the roaring fire of the pizza oven, that can be seen from the road, is the clue to the restaurant’s success. They serve a range of pasta, fish and meat dishes, and we tried the pasta which was pretty good. But there is no question that the... More

Beautiful pizzas. Felt like I was in Europe. Service was brilliant. Noticed a kanak staff member return a wallet someone left behind by accident. Ordered a Marinara and Green Salad + Cheese. Lovely.

Brilliant! We left Casa Italiana before ordering as we were disappointed with the service and attitude of the manager, and stumbled upon la dolce vita on our way back to Anse Vata and Oh what a surprise! Relaxing ambience, nice staff (all of them) and the food was divine. Although we wanted to try as many places as possible we... More
