Amazing quaint old style family run restaurant

We have been here several times over the last few years. The owner / operators do a great job of making you feel at home. The ceviche is my must have every time, it is fantastic. The dishes are always fresh and the sauces really compliment the entree. With no cork fee, this BYOB has little... read more

We are experienced travelers having just spent a week in Italy and three weeks in Paris. The tomato sauce in this restaurant is to die for. It's appearance and taste could only mean it was homemade from fresh tomatoes, You must try the homemade sausage (no fillers), grilled Italian peppers and the hot bruschetta. The baked ziti is huge and... More

The food was delicious; I enjoyed the chicken marsala. Very good prices. Service was also fine. But, the restroom definitely needs a lot of improvement. Lots of street parking.

I threw up walking out the door in the plastic plants. We over paid, the entire party got sick. My 60 year old uncle has died, waiting on autopsy.

This past weekend, my family had a 60th birthday party for my brother with 26 family and friends. Dolce Vita did a wonderful job with the handling of the party, the food and service were incredible and every one left the party thanking me for a great dinner and party.

We went to this restaurant as a group of 5 on Saturday night. We were seated at a round table in what was the "kitchen" of the house with 1960 or 70 type of decor. The service was fine - but the food was absolutely not. The calamari was easily the worst we've ever had as well as the eggplant... More

Where do I start? Classic Italian Restaurant with a twist. The chef is from Mexico and cooks Italian Masterpieces. This is a true Mom and Pop eatery that does it right. Husband and Wife team who cooks and takes care of the customers. On weekends the Chef offers an additional side to the menu, Mexican cooking. Not fast food tacos... More

Perhaps we just tried this small neighborhood restaurant on the wrong night, but from the get-go we were not impressed. First off, parking is a problem. Secondly, I stood inside the front door for at least 5 minutes and no one even saw me. The decor is a hodge-podge of Italian, Irish, Mexican and Asian ... and it just doesn't... More
