We went out quite late and were happy that the place still accepted us after 23:00 even though it was closing at midnight. House wine was ok and the Ceasar salad portion was big and tasty! And we got complimentary bread! We liked the place...so much, we went there next day again! Pizza and kinds of pasta were the choices this time and they did not disappointed again! I will go there again next time I am in Tartu!More

On our first evening in Tartu, and looking for somewhere nice to eat after spending much of the day travelling, my partner and I decided on La Dolce Vita. It was a great decision: proper Italian pizza and delicious ice cream. Really relaxed ambience too....And the waitress told us we’d really cheered her up with our positive energy! Would totally recommend.More

There has not been a bad visit and we've been there many times. If you love Italian then this is the place to be. The food is always authentic, outstanding and delicious. Absolutely love the ample varieties of pasta. The service has also been superb...each visit, even when the place is really crowded and it often is. We will definitely visit again! :)More

Excellent Italian restaurant near the city center. The facade in fact was not so temptating, looked like basic pizzeria, but the restaurant was much more. Full of families, students and business people. The food we had was excellent. We both had seafood, me with taggliatelle,...my wife with risotto. Also the wines were good ones. We got very good service from young trainee.More

Tripadvisor score not in accordance with what we have experienced Pizzaiolo are very noisy with the plates that is unbearable Pizze have nothing to do do with Italian ones. Not cooked, very basic … no Italian cheese Waiters are sympathetic

We were looking for a nice place to have dinner while first time in Tartu and chose La Dolce vita because of the reviews, we also reserved a table outside since it was Saturday night and warm outside. Best decision ever- our waitress was superb...and food was so delicious and we had the best time. It would be too hot if we had a table inside but we didn’t so everything was so great. Try some pizza, seafood pasta and shrimp risotto and definitely panna cotta. Definitely go hungry because food is very filling but oh so niceMore

We stopped in the restaurant for quick lunch on week day. Quickly we ordered two pizzas. Our meal came back in just few minutes i was absolutely impressed by the time they prepared the food. Pizza was delicious it had really beaten my Italian pizza...experience. After the perfect main course we decided for the desert and tiramisu was just perfect ending of great lunch. Would definitely come back to try one of their many pasta dishes.More

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.
