A Taste of Italy on the Outer Banks

We ate at La Dolce Vita on Wednesday, July 15. The restaurant is located in a very busy shopping center in Corolla. When we were there, the area was very busy. Parking is available, but there was a lot of traffic. Several restaurants are also in the area. We put our name in with the restaurant and... read more

Put your name on the list, give them your cell #, check back within the time they tell you, and your table is ready (no call made to me). We had dinner -- Eggplant Napolitano and Gnocchi with pesto and grilled chicken. Eggplant dish was piping hot and delicious on the top and the pasta, ice cold on the bottom,... More

This restaurant was recommended to me and I am so thankful for it! The restaurant is located in a fun but busy shopping village. The waiter was excellent and explained each special of the day to us, which we ended up ordering one of them. The prices are reasonable with many menu items to choose from. Our meal was superb....

We were on a beach trip and weren't that impressed with many of the restaurants in Corolla, but we found that this was the best experience and very good food. It is a small restaurant and we waited an hour and a half for a seat, but it was worth the wait. The calamari was crisp and seasoned well; the... More

For a loud group of 15, including several small kids, we didn't always feel like waiting for a table or eating @ 9 PM. The mgmt was very helpful in getting all our orders straight, and tossed in a couple of homemade Italian loaves. The pesto gnocci was a winner, and the sauteed shrimp on tis plate and others had...

The rest of our family were eating at the restaurant next door but our granddaughter does not like seafood so she ordered Italian and really loved her meal. She's a picky eater do that is saying something!

Everything was so well done--had a grilled salad that was truly gourmet, not a menu afterthought, pizzas were gourmet as well, rosemary bread with balsamic (yum)--definitely finer dining cooked from an actual chef and not an hourly cook...

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

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!
