We went here after we returned from our vacation. We had been on a plane all day, and we were tired and staring. My teenagers were not dressed as nicely as I would have liked, but we were hungry for Dolce Vita pizza. We have not been here in months, and the last time we went, the service was awful.... More

Was invited to Dolce Vita by a friend for dinner. We ordered two glasses of house wine and a pizza. The pizza was in my opinion terrible and when the bill came it was for almost $40.00! Will not be back...

My husband and I had dinner last night at the bar as this used to be one of our favorite restaurants and we realized we hadn't been in a while and now we remember why. We absolutely love the veggies ~ brussel sprouts and beets but the pizzas were mediocre at best. We asked if they could make our Margherita... More

Stopped by for a quick bite. The maitre d' was kind enough and sat us outside. Pizza was thin, but soft, floppy, and doughy. The roasted garlic we paid extra to have on the pizza was freshly cut and not roasted. The pizza tasted ok loaded up with red pepper flakes and parmesan. The gorgonzola with honey was just weird....

I regret giving only three stars to a place that gets so many things right on a good day, but it is infuriating to see how wildly inconsistent its pizza can be. Until a few years ago it solidly delivered what I believe to be the only excellent thin crust pizza in town. Then probably the chef changed, because the... More

Came to Dolce Vita for our anniversary and admittedly I was worried this would be a little too low-key for an anniversary dinner but I have to say my love did well! We had all of the fish appetizers as well as the meats which were to die for. After that we shared a pizza which is definitely authentic Italian... More

The experience of Dolce Vita Pizzeria is habit forming! The food, the crowd, the FOOD combines for a thoroughly enjoyable evening. The wait staff is excellent in suggesting fresh ingredients for the 5 toppings of your choice pizza. The pizza is authentic Italian...You will love your evening! Dinner only,

I went to this restaurant with my boyfriend, and the second time with some friends of his work. It is a nice place to eat good italian food, they have a very good pizza, did not try the past though. Small restaurant, staff very helpful and everything's very clean. I had the calzoni pizza, and it was awesome, with a... More

We ordered 2 pizzas, mine is a pizza with 5 toppings of your choice for $17.00. Tomatoes, truffle oil, pancetta, parmesan cheese and spicy italian sausage were chosen. The dough is fresh and very good comparing to Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria in Edmonton (11750 Jasper Ave NW, Edmonton, AB) we would give the edge to Famoso but on the other hand... More

I went there last week with a friend, something we do monthly and we enjoy trying new restaurants. We each had an appetizer and entree, at reasonable prices. We each asked for a side of pasta, one with marinara and one plain. We were charged $12 and $10 for the pasta. Ridiculous when you are charged more for a side... More
