A perfect place for dinner. I have been several times and never dissapointed. The service is great, the food is excellent and you never have to wait long.

We made a last minute reservation, but were pleasantly surprised. My partner had a pizza and I had tagliatelle scampi, both satisfied with what we ordered. The waiting was a bit long, but it was not to the point where you would get annoyed. Dessert was also good. The staff was very friendly and polite. And at the end of... More

The meals are very tasteful, having starters and main course is certainly enough. Staff is very good and we were served an extra round of limoncello on the house, really friendly!

Nicely decorated classic Italian restaurant. Freshly baked pizzas in wood oven. Open kitchen. Friendly staff. Typical ambience. Wide range of dishes and wines. Moderate prices. Good spot to come back every several weeks.

I love Italian food and prefer to eat in Italian restaurants whenever possible. I ate at La Dolce Vita three times during my stay in Genk. On the last occasion I suffered from a severe stomach upset four hours after eating there.

This was just around the corner from the ECU Hotel and it was a great recommendation. The staff were very welcoming and we had a delightful waitress called Silvia. The recommendations were perfect and the food was really tasty and beautifully presented. We had the house red wine and this perfectly complimented the meal in every way. Try the prawns... More

After the good reviews on tripadvisor, I had great expectations. Was very dissapointed after it receiving a really moderate, rather poor tasting meal for a quite high price (most pastas between 15 & 20 euros). Really no idea why this is such a high rated venue, or maybe I had bad luck with my choice of food. Service and atmosphere... More

We had a pizza here and it was just plain, the service was bad, we had to wait a very long time and were put together like sardines. We never went back and we will not.

Looks like a takeaway from the outside but has a restaurant at the rear. The food is excellent especially the pizza. The restaurant is constructed like an Italian courtyard with small balconies with tables. I may seem a bit over the top in decor but well worth going to for the food.

Ate a full Italian meal around 10 p.m. It was delicious pizza, pasta, and beer. The ambiance was buzzing, and lively, with a hacienda feeling.
