Food was great. Service & drinks were less than great.

I was in Syracuse alone for a business conference for 4 nights. This place is very close to my hotel (Genesee Grande - literally a 2-minute walk). I had been there a few years ago when in town for the same conference. A very friendly bartender tried hard, but inexperience cost me. I ordered an... read more

After being told of Dolce Vita by a friend I decided to take my wife there in our date night. The atmosphere was very relaxing, food was delicious, and the service was excellent and prompt. I will recommend Dolce Vita to all my friends. Great job!

Given the spotty reviews I wasn't sure if trying this restaurant would turn out to be a poor decision. Honestly, it was my best valentines dinner out. We were promptly seated on arrival with reservations. Service was good, my only complaint would be the water glasses were not refilled. Otherwise we were treated well and had a nice meal. There...

We have never had a bad meal here. Owner is lovely and it is an overlooked spot. Love that menu is varied and reasonably priced.

service was terrible, food was not cooked correctly. Wanted to go to Phoebes before a play at Syracuse Stage but they were full - should have went to the pizza place near by

After ordering dinners for a group of people, it took too long for the meals to be ready. Eventually some meals were served while others in the group had to wait at least 10 minutes longer before they were served. Meals were not as expected. Salads that were supposed to have mandarin oranges and cranberries hardly had any. And for... More

Ate here while staying at a nearby hotel, and was very pleased. The food was great, and the service excellent. Our waitress even gave a the name of a great local diner for breakfast the next day. I'd changed the name, though, went in thinking it was an Italian restaurant.

Located near Syracuse University this was a very quiet place on a Saturday night in June. We had the started with some local beers that were very good. We had the wild mushroom pillows that I found a bit greasy. I had the Asian Arrabiata with chicken which was very good and very filling although I could could not taste... More

The Caesar Salad is actually a grilled half head of romaine. The dressing is good, croutons are absent, and the dirty root end was left on the lettuce. I appreciate the fried capers, but the plain lemon wedges don't necessarily work with the "deconstructed" thing,, they need to be manipulated somehow. Needs more cheese too. The fried calamari is just... More

Visited Dolce Vita before Syracuse Stage. Seems like we are always dealing with some minor issue before we can run across the street for the show. Last visit, the check was wrong. Charged for a bottle of wine which we didn't have. Prices are a bit heftier than Phoebe's. $6 for a bowl of meatless soup. $10 for a glass... More
