Randomly found this place. We were a group of six and seated privately to the rear of the restaurant. The service was excellent and comprehensive. Great wine list and excellent food.

If you ever visited Italy and enjoyed the beautiful Italian food, you will probably disappointed at La Dolce Vita. It is not bad but it is not good either, that average Italian food you get when away from Italy. I would not recommend it, try at your own risk...

Been coming often there since we moved to Chile in 2012. Good pasta and pizzas, good service but a bit more expensive than other Italian restaurants

Nice little Italian restaurant in a nice part of Vina. Quite formal in a way but not so much that it made us uncomfortable. Some items are a bit more expensive than you'd think they'd be in Chile, like the bottled water was crazy expensive. However the overall price was fine of the meal. And very enjoyable. Had a pizza...

We have been to La Dolce Vita about a dozen times and the food is always good and reliable. All the pastas, particularly the raviolis are outstanding. Desserts are OK and the wine list is not very large but has some decent Chilean wines.
