A lovely restaurant. Attentive friendly service. Italian food with a good menu. We ordered sharing starters and then a selection of main course. Excellent pasta, a chicken dish and a perfectly cooked steak. Wine good and offered a taster before making final selection. Will be back next time in Reading.

Have been visiting Dolce Vita for years and never had a bad meal. Scotch eggs are the best, runny inside and the Salmon to die for. Always busy which is a good sign so booking is a must. Staff are amazing

We really enjoyed our meal here; both a la carte and set menu's had very good selections. The only fault we found was that one of the waiters (with long hair and glasses) had very strong body odour which is not very pleasant when you are eating. We are surprised that the management hasn't picked up on this because his... More

We parked in the Oracle car park and despite living in Reading for tears we struggled to find our way into this restaurant as it is above a rather soulless arcade. Once we were in the restaurant itself, which was nicely presented the staff were very welcoming. It was a warm evening and we had the choice of sitting outside... More

Visited recently to this restaurant with my wife setting was slightly unusual off the main track at the oracle Centre and rather an unusual entrance going up like a Industrial iron staircase which was not very presentable however when you get to the top half decent view overlooking the end of the town and clean and tidy inside so no...
