The staff were nice and helped me after an accident. The food was fabulous and the chef took time to come and have a chat with the customers.

Went to Dolce Vita for dinner last July 10 with colleagues and we were so impressed! We were seated at the perfect spot where the skyline set as a magnificent backdrop to a lovely dinner. Vanessa, our server, was so cheerful and friendly, and gave us complimentary drinks and chocolates! Plus, we got to meet the chef who was so... More

It is ok, but not more. The view is nice and the service a bit above average. However if you consider the prices for what you get, then it is too expensive, even for a hotel restaurant.

We chose the Dolce Vita to have a romantic dinner and treat ourselves. We were very happy with the result ! We had dinner on the terrace - the view is very nice with the MBS, and the lights from the swimming pool. The indoor part looks very cosy as well. Service was great, and we decided to go for... More

I was so impressed with the setting and the view across the fondly remembered 'Esplanade' that I set my heart on dining here one... More

Outdoor tables have a romantic atmosphere. The restaurant is for couples not business meetings. Good Italian food, beautifully presented. Portions are fine. The supporting bits such a bread, amuse bouche etc are well done. Service is charming, efficient but not "over the top". Prices are fair for this quality and location. Wine selection is tremendous, but quite highly priced. Would... More
