Atmosphere is nice. Washrooms are a little tired but very clean. Menu has a good variety. Prices are... read more

Took my wife to date night here and ordered a vegetarian pizza, she was so impressed the vegetables were perfect and not burnt, as so often a pizza with vegetables can be. We shared a salad and enjoyed the homemade olive oil with our bread with plenty of leftovers from our meal. The homemade Tiramisu really struck a cord with... More

Caesar would have had a stroke... We visited Dolce Vita in Tucson, Arizona on a Saturday evening (17:30) during March, 2015. The three of us (my wife, daughter and me) walked into the restaurant with no reservation and were greeted by a pleasant young lady who seated us at a table near the back of the north-eastern-most wall. The table... More

The food was hot, but no better than I make for my family at home. At $20 per person, it's just not worth it, in my opinion. I was also disappointed that the bread was just a small rather stale loaf and not the homemade garlic rolls I've come to love in other small Italian restaurants.

I had heard wonderful things about this place and thought I would take my cousin, who is from out of town here for dinner. I love Italian food and since moving to Tucson a few weeks ago, I was looking forward to finding a nice Italian place. The restaurant was easy to find with plenty of parking. The atmosphere was...

Five of us for dinner, all ordering different dishes and all very satisfied with the food. The service was very good and one of the best favorable points for us was the ability for all of us to talk. So many of the Tucson restaurants do NOT allow you to do that these days with the closeness of tables and... More

Came in for a late lunch. The service was good and the prices were reasonable. Had the soup of the day which was similar to Italian wedding soup, Very flavorful. The salads were fresh and the dressing was very good. Great Italian restaurant would visit again.

Nice staff here. Very polite and helpful. Italian food, including the traditional dishes you grew up with, and then some. Tasty. Reasonable. And no signs of disinfectant spray (see other reviews)!

He bussed three tables around us spraying foul chemicals into the air each time. This happened EVEN after complaing. As a result our dinner was unfinished. It was painful not to finish this delicious dinner as a result of... More

We went to this "Greco/Italian" restaurant with friends and were pleasantly surprised. The salad with their signature feta dressing was out of this world (one of the best I've ever had). The special - a scallop with pasta of choice was delicious as was the veal special taken by another guest. Dessert was terrific and the service was splendid. I... More
