I went to la Dolce Vita as I wanted to have a nice Italian Pizza, and TripAdvisor ratings have been very good for the restaurant. Despite one that I saw, complaining about the Pizza. In the end, I should have taken that one more serious. I had a 'Forrestiere', which sounded very nice. I have to say when it arrived... More

Dear Sir, We took good note of your disappointment, but our Forestale Pizza is one of the most appreciated, and every day, many clients choose it. Sometimes, it may happens that mushrooms contain water, but upstream work, we prepare them every day with oil, white wine, erbs and species in order to avoid such problems. In spite of this precaution,... More

Came here purely on the recommendation of previous TripAdvisor reviews, having worked up an appetite that demanded pizza and pasta for dinner. Friendly waiting staff greeted us in the restaurant then marched us straight outside to sit in a garden terrace which was pretty nice given you're bang in the town centre. Service was attentive (we were early and the... More

Although the food was excellent and great value for money, the experience of this restaurant was dampened by a rude waiter who continuously pretended to not be able to understand us, despite one of the party having degree-level French, and the other teaching French in a secondary school. The other staff were welcoming and helpful, but this one waiter soured... More

Visit on the night before Bastille day and for some reason many restaurants seemed closed. Chose this as it was open. Pretty average menu and food. House wine insipid but drinkable. Carpaccio good, lasagne just ok. Expensive for what it was.

My husband and I decided to eat here after 10 days of traditional French food. We were the only customers when we arrived but the place soon filled up. I had a delicious dish of pasta with two different sauces. It was very rich and a very generous portion - about double what you would get as a pasta course... More

Turned up on spec about 9pm Restaurant was choc full but staff still found time to get us a drink and nibbles while we were waiting. We were seated within 10 mins and food was served very quickly. The pizzas were fabulous as was the tiramisu. At least a dozen waiting for tables by the time we left. Can't get... More

Not just classic tasting pizzas but delicious pasta with incredible home-made taste, and super gourmet-style desserts as well. Affordable prices in a place where a good dinner is guaranteed.

The food was savoury and Italian themed and nicely served . Pasta and pizzas dominate but steaks and grills are available.
