We used to love this place. Food has always been good. We have gone here for a long time but something quite terrible has happened. There has to be new management because we have been treated very rudely the past two years. Hostesses are young girls (last night the one they had spent her time taking pictures on her cell... More

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
