La Dolce Vita


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

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

Really good pastas. I have been eating here once or twice a year for 10 years now and quality is always good. Best place to eat pasta before sport competition 😃 My favorite is Pasta frutyi di mare.

Thank you for having visited La Dolce Vita and we are glad that your husband enjoyed our dishes and wine. The wine you're looking for is our Primitivo di Manduria DOP "Papale Oro" We hope to see you back soon.

I´m not sure. The restaurant is a quality place so I would assume that they do have gluten free options. They have a contact address where you can place your question about this issue.
