We visited for my husbands 50th lunch celebration. We were greeted with friendly faces and a warm atmosphere. The staff were extremely helpful, knowledgeable about ingredients and dishes. The wine was chilled to perfection. My husband had the fillet steak which was cooked at the table, adding a wonderful touch. My mother in law had the fresh fish and I... More

We had a lovely Friday lunch with friends. The service was perfect. Drinks in the lounge area whilst unhurriedly perusing the impressive menu. The food was delicious and very good value. The restaurant had a nice semi formal feel about it. Table cloths and linen napkins even at lunchtime. Plenty of parking. Would definitely go again and will recommend to... More

We really enjoyed our night out at this restaurant. The food was exquisite and the service was excellent. We ordered Scallopini with lemon and it was very tasty. The wine matched the food perfectly. We shared the cheese board and then having a sweet tooth we finished it off with a delicious Tiramisu. All this was served with a polite... More

Saturday lunchtime. one party of four and one of two when we arrived, so including us there were three tables only. Service was good, although we waited quite a time for the food to be prepped. Good range of all Italian wines, very narrow choice of beer (Peroni) and none of the many excellent / interesting Italian beers. Importantly, the... More

A late Friday night booking for 4 turned into a beautiful evening with great company, amazing food and delightful service . Our first time dining here and we will definitely be back , recommendations would be to have the Filetto alla Diana, perfectly flambéed at your table for all to envy and the smell is mouthwatering. For dessert there is... More

Recommended some time ago but establishment changed hands since. Something a little strange. The new Owners have retained the old name so this can be misleading. They also use a menu almost identical in substance to that used by the old Owners who have moved to a new restaurant at Sevenoaks. Incidentally the prices here are just a few pence... More

This restaurant seems to lack atmosphere. The food is excellent, the service attentive, a good Italian menu but it's rather like having a meal in a quiet country Hotel restaurant. There is absolutely nothing Italian about it apart from the name and the menu.

My wife and I treated ourselves to lunch today at La Dolce Vita in Lamberhurst; a restaurant that features high on our dining circuit. We were not disappointed. We chose the fixed price menu having duck and pork terrine followed by skate wing, and red mullet fillets followed by pork belly strips, all cooked to perfection, absolutely delicious and excellent...
