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

This is the 3rd time I have visited La Dolce Vita. The 1st was a non even as we arrived on a Sunday afternoon and they were just closing. The second time back in April was met with an ordinary experience as far as food goes. The most recent time I visited, I ordered a Pizza, which going by the... More

Handy restaurant to our hotel, staff very accommodating. Meal was very good and reasonably priced. Only thing we did not like was that they put about 2" of whipped cream on the top of our coffees. Yuk.

After such an unacceptable performance for the trendy Pizza & Pasta restaurant in the Hilton complex, we decided to go inland and this, despite the confronting name of the restaurant. Here we found honest Italian food.... a reasonably good antipasto platter, some good local fish, good ravioli and an excellent cannelloni. Prices were reasonable for both food and wine (though...

had excellent and inexpensive spaghetti carbonara. Pizza's looked good too. The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming which, quite frankly based on our experience, was a departure from the normal indifferent service we encountered in many other places in Noumea.

We ate here 3 times as it was next door to our hotel. The service was very slow even though it wasn't busy. The food was good enough but not exceptional. The lasagna was very dry, the pasta was very tasteless although their pizzas were very good. Might be a good place to take the kids if you are on... More

House wine was well priced & steak was cooked to perfection. Staff could have given a smile & looked like they enjoyed their job. Don't order the pizza with an egg...it'll be raw & maybe wait a day or so for the chocolate mouse to be fully set! Other than that, all good!
