Seafood Diablo. Unbelievable. Besides, at our request they made the dinner menu available at lunch time. Great service and incredibly good food. Crab cakes were awesome as well!

I discovered La Dolce Vita a couple years ago, and I have yet to be disappointed in my dinners there. In fact, this time around I ate three meals with them with zero complaints. The service was great, the food equally wonderful. The Chicken Parmesan is divine, buttery goodness. Huge portion, so be prepared to share or take home. I... More

We were headed to another restaurant that ended up being closed for the season. We decided to give La Dolce Vita a try even though we hadn't heard anything about it.

We usually get the Chicken Parm which is very good. This time we went a little lighter....a pizza and salad. The pizza would have been good except the bottom was burned. Maybe the end of the season?? Also, the salad was a dark green leafy lettuce with a groups of chopped onion and another of chopped tomato along the edges... More

Everything we ate was delicious. We ate here for lunch and had an arugula salad with orange slices, pickled onions and walnuts that was simple but really good. The pizza was excellent and time was taken to make that crust. I highly recommend this establishment!

My friends and I were pleasantly surprised by this Italian find in timbuck II. Portions were large and we could have easily split the entrees. The atmosphere was cozy and the wait staff attentive.
