For dessert I had the Tira mi su. A large delicious portion which I managed to finish.My husband had the 10 oz. veal... read more

Spent 2 weeks in the Outer Banks and enjoyed 3 dinners at La Dolce Vita. It's unusual for us to frequent the same restaurant 3 times in 2 weeks, especially with so many nice restaurants in the area. Each meal at La Dolce Vita was very good and the service was excellent.

Overall, the food here was good. The best service we got was during our 1+ hour wait (which somehow we were mysteriously the only people waiting...) we found while sitting at the bar. Bartender was friendly and made decent drinks. Otherwise, the restaurant is SMALL and I think only had two waiters working. The host was a bit rude and... More

Always get pizza our first night here. Have been disappointed with the places we ordered from the last couple of times though! This place has good pizza! Prices are about average too!

Eight of us had dinner here this past week. Everyone loved their meals and had enough left over for dinner the following evening. Service is exceptional! Try the lasagna! We were in Corolla at the end of September. Some restaurants that we went to were disappointing. It was obvious they were closing for the season; but not true for La... More

We went to this place our first night in town, because it was close and we had arrived too late to feel up to searching around or going further afield - so we just lucked into it. Wow! The food was excellent, the specialty drinks were tasty, and the service was prompt and pleasant. The portions were quite large, so... More

Not a big place, but we went there early on a Friday night and got a table for 4. Except for kind of slow service (again it was Friday), the food was great. I had chicken parm which filled the entire plate so I ate it next night. Everyone else needed a doggie bag as well.

Wife and I couldn't find a decent clean restaurant for lunch and just picked this randomly. Appetizzer of calamari with a marinara dip. Marinara was great,like homemade, and so were the calamari. Pizza was such a welcome surprise, light not greasy as in so many so called pizza places. Cook obviously takes pride in her work. Took 1/2 home and... More

One of the best restaurants in the entire Outer Banks! Great selection of wines, food and service is outstanding.. we had apps, entrees, and dessert and it was all delicious and well timed. It is an authentic Italian restaurant and the owner goes out of her way to be sure patrons are pleased. A real gem!
