So my wife and I went to La Dolce Vita for dinner last night, unfortunately they were done for the evening, early. Brian recommended two other places since we couldn't eat there, and we tried to go to the one and it was a longer wait than we wanted to endure, so we ended up some place different. Tonight was...

If you get the chance, do visit La Dolce Vita in Corolla, NC. We ate there twice. The quality of the food and service was excellent.

Love the atmosphere, attentive and pleasant wait staff, great pumpkin with crab soup as a starter coupled with a really good slightly grilled Romaine salad. The warm freshly baked bread was a very tasty touch. I had a fantastic lobster Ravioli topped with large lump crab meat, while the wife had the veal saltimbocca over well flavored spaghetti, though she... More

Went here early on a Friday evening in late September. We were seated promptly, without a reservation, and the waitress took our drink orders quickly. I was amazed at the large glass my excellent Mojito came in! One of the specials that day was a grilled romaine salad, topped with bacon and roma tomatoes, with a shallot dressing. Most amazing...

When my husband and I couldn't get into the seafood restaurant nearby we found this charming restaurant and were so glad we did! Started with an Italian Onion Soup that still has my mouth watering. We were served a lovely bread with a pesto olive oil dip that we greatly enjoyed. I had a pasta special with kale and shrimp... More

Food was good, overpriced for what you got; drinks were delish; the wait to be seated was a bit too long, desserts were yummy; waitress was curt and seemed annoyed at the patrons in general.

We love coming to this friendly Italian restaurant in Corolla, NC. We have been eating at this restaurant for the past 4 years. We usually eat 3 to 4 dinners here. Excellent food, great service and always great desserts. You will not go wrong eating here during your Outer Banks vacation.

We tried La Dolce Vita for the very first time on the last day of our one week vacation in OBX. This restaurant offers some good Italian food, mostly pasta and specialty pizzas. Everyone in our party was satisfied with the food. All of us ordered pasta. I think it is a little over-priced for pasta. I must say the... More

A great place that accommodated a large group (6 adults, 7 children) late on a Saturday evening with no reservations. Pleasant staff, nice menu selection, and *huge* portions of food brought to the table quickly and piping hot. The portions were easily large enough, to take home for a full lunch the next day! The only "complaint" would be that... More

Great service - they do not accept reservations but you can call ahead 30 minutes or so for reserved seating. I highly recommend call ahead as the wait times were 60 minutes when we arrived. They called us back when our table and we were promptly seated. The waitress was very pleasant, attentive and food served promptly. The prices are... More
