The best thing they have is pizza! Very good negroni' sand suppli. We tried Casio e pepe and carbonara, while good the pasta didn't taste homemade and the sauce was too thick causing it to all clump together quickly. While it's supposed to have pepper, it had too much! The cannoli' we're very good too! Would go back for the... More

My Italian husband loves his pizza and since moving to Houston, we try to go to Dolce Vita 2-3 times a month. Seriously. 1. He loves this pizza. Thin and on-point with the pizza that you get in Italy. 2. We enjoy the wine as well. Ask the sommelier if you would like suggestions. He goes to Italy regularly and... More

Parking sucks Hostesses are clueless, service was great Pizza crispy nice crust Spaghetti with clams ok Octopus and potatoes underwhelming Panna cotta good but presentation lacking Music was weird some type of fast jazz Their sister restaurants Da Marco and Enoteca are way better and have better atmosphere

This has been my go to place for over a decade. Valet parking, patio stays quieter than interior of restaurant. Great selection of Italian wines and homemade pastas. The only pizza I've had in the United States that is truly Italian. Fresh ingredients, thin crust...I have never had a bad meal - food is always consistent. Service is on spot.... More

Valet parking and security were a plus. Service was fine, wait staff knowledgeable. Atmosphere was fine. Appetizers were interesting. The pizza was the worst, that I have ever eaten. Crust was like cardboard and the taste was probably comparable. The toppings were not any better. I never eat at Pizza Hut, but believe, that any chain pizza restaurant, would have... More

Disappointed. Nothing but high carbohydrates, like appetizers. Nothing substantially as a meal. Would have liked a chicken or veal selection but everything was low cost pizza selections. Was told to expect lasagna but it never appeared. Would not return.

My favorite place in Houston to eat. You have great tasting, authentic Italian food with a nice atmosphere and decent pricing. I was told that this was a sister restaurant to Da Marco (best Italian possibly in the state). I can't confirm that, but I can tell you that the food is delicious! The flavors in the sauce for the...
