Great Italian restaurant

Went there two nights ago with a family of 8. They were very accommodating and the food was excellent. I had the spaghetti & meatballs. The meatballs were outstanding - soft and very favorable, and the were huge!

Don't bother going here if you're a true italian as you will surely be disappointed! Bread is homemade but tasteless, good thing it is accompanyed by some olive oil with puree of basil. Ordered a garden salad and husband ordered an arugula salad. When he asked to substitute the goat cheese that came on top of his salad with grated... More

We took our family of 15 there...they don't take reservations but told us if we got there at 5 they would keep us together...true to their word they gave us the whole back deck. The server was great...the specials were awesome and the pizza was very good...very good wine list.!

After all the seafood and ready for a change, this is it. A nice upscale casual Italian restaurant with a pleasing ambience and menu comparable to any city in the south. Pleasant service, LARGE portions ensure a good meal (and leftovers). Clams spaghetti really fresh. Lasagne and chicken parma really big portions so be warned.

Atmosphere and decorations were good. Felt intimate and cozy. The food had great flavoring and portion size was large. Our waitress was attentive and our drink glasses were never empty. Parking was an issue since they are in a shopping area, but the food and service made up for that. Highly recommend.

La Dolce Vita offers a diverse Italian menu although I thought it was a little overpriced. However, the food was outstanding so that made up for it. I had the shrimp and crab meat penne a la vodka. It was absolutely delicious. The only gripe I had was with the service. Our waitress was really nice but there were a... More

We came on Memorial Day and had a very short wait, we had an excellent waiter who made great recommendations and was extremely attentive to my entire family including the kids. We had a great meal and a great time for a good price. The service was exceptional... So much so we gave a 35% tip which we've never done... More

The waitress led us out to the patio and seated us for our meal. She was friendly and pleasant. Our meal was good. The shrimp was beyond delicious and the desert was superb. My sisters and I enjoyed every aspect of it.

We had a late lunch here and all were pleased. I had a specialty pizza which was incredible. This isn't your run-of-the-mill pizza! All fresh ingredients. The service was great! We had a large group (15, 7 kids, 8 adults). The kids food came out prior to the adult meals which I love...keeps the kids from getting to hungry while... More
