Good coffee here, stopped here a few times for coffee. Only had Brunch here but it was very nice. The staff are very friendly and seemed to remember us each time we popped in which was really nice.

La Dolce Vita is very near to where we are staying, we had just arrived in Caloundra and we're tired after a full days travel. An outside table was arranged for the six of us with no fuss, orders for drinks taken promptly, tap water brought quickly too and pizza orders taken. Staff were very pleasant and efficient and best... More

We were staying nearby and had a pleasant visit on a previous occasion. Staff were professional and friendly, menu is generous but not overwhelming, and great for those with some young ones. The restaurant had a lovely vibe and deserves to be a local favourite. Prices are very reasonable. My main dish didn't quite hit the mark ( for me... More

Our personal favourite place for breakfast... The long time staff always remember us, even if its been 12 months... We've never had a bad meal here... On one visit to the area we ate breakfast 4 mornings in a row and ate something different every morning...

Was in Caloundra for some work and stayed upstairs at the hotel nearby. Having a soft spot for Italian dined on two occasions during the mid-week. Restaurant relatively quiet but very eager staff and never a problem with customer service. Small selection of wines, reasonably priced. Had their risotto twice - well cooked with aborino rice and consistent on both... More

Saturday night dinner. We had a reservation and were inside the main building. It was VERY noisy. Meals took over an hour to arrive, but they were busy. Staff: very attentive and eager to please. Wine: good but expensive. Food: sadly only ok. Very high in oil/fat. I thought I had deliberately chosen a dish without cream according to the... More

I selected this restaurant by chance and I was very pleased with the food, service and the range of GF Meals. The Staff were very obliging and offered alternatives for me. We had a view of the Pumistone Passage and watched the Vintage Car Rally trundle past. Meal prices were varied and mid range but very filling. Well worth the... More

We had arancini, bugs with linguini, panacotta with vanilla, and a brûlée. Friendly timely helpful service and reasonable prices. We would visit again.

This restaurant is not on Trip Advisor but is located beneath the Rhumba Resort in Caloundra. Can you pls set it up as a restaurant in its own right so I can write a review.
Thanks, Kitty
