This is my third time to this restaurant and I cannot recommend it highly enough. The food is very good quality and you won't leave feeling hungry. Great menu and wine list. Service is attentive but not fussy

We booked a table for 5 of us for my daughter's 21st birthday dinner and we weren't disappointed. I smuggled a balloon and some cup cakes in for later which the staff handled very discreetly. The bar area is layed out with comfy sofas etc where we sat and had pre-dinner drinks and ordered from the menu. The whole meal... More

I just love this place, although it has changed hands and the owner is a younger Italian but still knows how to serve the lovely food and nothing is to much trouble for any of the staff from the manager down. The atmosphere is always welcoming and attention to detail excellent. The food, and that is what I go for... More

My husband and I were joined by our son and daughter-in-law for a Valentines Dinner at La Dolce Vita. We had a warm welcome from the Manager and his staff. The dinner and wine were, once again, delicious- stuffed figs and perfectly cooked steak and fish. The restaurant was busy but at not time did we have to wait for... More

We booked a table for sat 20th Dec for four, it was welcoming unrushed and comfortable. The food was presented very well and was cooked to perfection. The menu was varied with a substancial choice. We all thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Absolutely superb..

I took my elderly mother here with some friends for her 92nd birthday, It was most memorable. The staff were very attentive, yet not at all intrusive. They even played Happy Birthday on the piano for my mother - she loved it. The food was fabulous too and all the guests are still talking about how much they enjoyed it.
