Great Steak

Loud atmosphere for a smaller restaurant. Great drinks and steak. Would definitely dine there again if we were in the area.

Had dinner with my wife and and a group of family members at La Dolce Vita. Service was very good and atmosphere lively. Drinks were great. For dinner, I had the sausage and peppers and my wife, the Chicken marsala. Both were very good. We all had a great time, the restaurant being very conducive to a family gathering.

Good food and drinks in a comfortable, non-pretentious atmosphere. The fish special was grouper and delicious. One person had a veal dish and was very satisfied.I will definitely return!

My spouse and I have visited La Dolce Vita many times and have always been more than pleased with our meal and service. The Pasta Prima Vera and the Linguini Con Vongole are superb. The wine selection is very good and there are several good wines also available by the glass. The waitstaff and host are always very friendly and... More

To start the restaurant is cozy and busy. The menu had many choices but no gluten free pasta. The prices were too high considering the largest portions on the plate was the pasta. Refills on soda are full price (which they don't tell you) and they won't make substitutions even though they don't have gluten free pasta so we had... More

Food used to be good. Don't know anymore. Left before food on 2 trips this summer. Drink orders wrong, and took forever. This time just listened to the host mistreat the couple in front of us, so just turned and left. Wont be back.

Finally tried this cozy Italian eatery near downtown and had a good meal in a tasteful atmosphere. The calamari alone will bring me back. Plenty of choices for pasta, fish, chicken, etc and specials written on a large chalkboard. Decent desserts. Try the Italian margarita!

I have to say that this used to be our favorite restaurant. Unfortunately the extremely rude male manager ruined it for us. I'm sure he's related to the owners somehow because there is no other reason he would still have a job with his attitude. He has always been questionable in terms of friendliness, but after speaking with him on... More
