Good, tasty food and big portions. But atmosphere was a bit too noisy, even though it was Tuesday night.

Make reservations! We didn't eat till 9:30. It's a popular place. One of had a new pizza on the menu that was really good and the others had different pastas including Pasta Carbonara. Salads were good and so was the dessert. We also enjoyed the wines. Tartu was not on our original itinerary on our trip through the Baltics but... More

Centrally located Italian style Pizzeria and Restaurant. Their food is quite average, not bad, but not anything special, and the wine list is quite limited.

Charming atmosphere and the staff were attentive. While my lasagna was quite nice, it was also a little burnt.

Most of us took (how else) different kind of pizza except myself. I am a fan of fish and got a very tasty and juicy salmon. All those who had a pizza were happy with theirs and some said it was one of the best they had since then. Restaurant had a cozy garden as well, where we also enjoyed... More

We only ordered pizzas. Crusts were excellent but toppings varied from superb to rather greasy. Service a bit brusque in the back yard but ambiance pleasant inside (a few steps down from pavement level in the old town).

Best place in Tartu for authentic Italian pizza, nice atmosphere with arched sealing and wood-fired pizza oven.

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.
