Food above average but service not so good. Two of five persons in our group received starters and main courses same time. Another two persons who ordered main courses only, got them 25min after others. No apologies from the waitress.

The food is great and the prices are normal. Service - ok, but unfortunately I didn't see even one smiling waitress, pity. The toilets were dirty and the floor was flooded with something.

I have been to La Dolce Vita many times. The service is great and they manage to bring the food promptly. Their pizzas and pastas are excellent - and they repeatedly deliver high quality. The salads and main dishes are quite basic, although they use good ingredients, which is why I prefer pasta and pizza. If you are hungry, I... More

I had a really high expectations of this restaurant because of the good reviews and other people's opinions, but i must say i was disappointed. I should have probably ordered a pizza, but i took some kind of lasagne portion. It was very small, looked and tasted like it would have been a "ready to eat -meal" heated up in... More

Third time in same place during three years and again very good Italian food. Very long new menu for summer 2016 and "1000" different pizzas, delicious. If you like Italian food then you definitely can find that in this restaurant.

Description
La Dolce Vita is an Italian restaurant which opened its doors in 2003. Its Italian owners serve up traditional dishes from their country. Its pizzas are made in a wood-fired oven which is unique in Tartu, and there is a wide range of pasta dishes to choose from. Some pasta is imported from Italy, while the rest is made on site. The menu also features traditional meat dishes. The quality of La Dolce Vita's menu is reflected in its simple, authentic components: Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, tomatoes and olive oil. In the summer months you can enjoy the warmer weather on the restaurant's terrace. The restaurant itself is close to a beautiful park, which is the perfect place to enjoy the gelato (Italian ice cream) that the restaurant offers.
