My wife and I have been here a few time and it is usually a good experience. Last evening we decided to have dinner there and were disappointed. The main issue was an inattentive server. I don't know whether he had too many tables or was just not a good waiter. However we only saw him for the our drink... More

I don't get back to my hometown often enough and after dining at La Dolce Vita, I know I need to change that. This was an outstanding meal. Not only was the food we ordered absolutely excellent, the owner came around offering up some fresh tomatoes "to try". Delicious. My nephew doesn't care for tomatoes, so he brought out some... More

This experience at la dolce vita had to be one of the worst food and service I have ever had. The service was awfully slow it took them an hour to get our appetizers. The waiter recommender the baked eggplant. You could have it for an appetizer for about 9.00 or it could be upgraded to an entree my husband... More

After a grueling game of bocci at the Alta House, our Favorite place to unwind is Terry's place. La Dolce Vita. Staff is amazing. Wine selection second to none. And the food is out of this world. You can always find Terry serving so sort of fabulous salad as an opener to all guests. His hospitality is first class. Thank... More

Best sausage stuffed hot peppers EVER. Hot as a firecracker, but fantastic. Fettuccini Fellini was very good. Home made bread was excellent. Service was excellent. Owner came around during dinner with home grown tomatoes, onions, olive oil, spices and just dished them out to everyone. Excellent meal and experience. We would go every night of the week except we live... More

It was the bread that lured us in. You get complimentary bread as soon as you sit down and my oh my, is it excellent! Unfortunately, our meals at La Dolce Vita couldn't compete with the bread: I got a 6-inch pizza--a straight up Americano (cheese and sauce and pepperoni) and was super disappointed. I felt like I could've made... More

Our party of nine just visited this restaurant this past Friday evening. The food was amazing, the service was exceptional. We were seated outside on a warm August evening under string lights hanging overhead. Baskets of flowers decorated the outdoor patio. Sad to see the outdoor bar was no longer in use, though. While we were waiting for our food,... More
