Flavorful and different

This Italian restaurant was suggested by the staff at London Bridge. It was pretty good. The special was eggplant parmesan which was good, but needed more sauce. The shrimp scampi was more like alfredo. However we both enjoyed our meals and would go there again.

We have been to this restaurant several times and always recommend it to company. Their bruschetta is fabulous. However, there are very limited options for vegans and no whole wheat pasta.

My mother, sister and I had a wonderful early dinner at La Vita Dolce. The service was excellent the minute we stepped in the door and the food did not disappoint. We started with the crab stuffed mushrooms, delicious, and mother had the shrimp scampi with angel hair pasta and I had the chicken piccata and I must say it... More

Very nice atmosphere , service is very good and the food is quite good. It is split into two sections, the bar and the dining room which is only slightly larger than the bar. The bar has two sport TVs but the sound is off so as not to interfere with conversions. The prices are very reasonable with a pasta... More

The food and service were good but not great. I had the sausage and peppers. The flavor was good but the way it was served was kind of odd. Instead of the sausage being cut in pieces it was served whole. The antipasto salad was just average.

Wonderful food, professional service and a great atmosphere. The food selection is great, from classic Italian to seafood and steaks. It is very popular and somewhat of a smaller size so on the weekend I suggest getting a reservation. A great place for a group of friends or an evening with someone special.

We went for a late lunch/early dinner. The food was delicious and fresh. Service was great, but we were the only family there at first. The pricing for most dishes were reasonable. If craving authentic Italian I would return. Chicken parmesean shown in the image.
