Great place for dessert. It is located between two restaurants. With couches and easy chairs it is a nice place to have a relaxing dessert after a good meal(at either Gratzi or Chop House)

When I can bear the calories count, I go to Dolce Vita for their caramelized banana bread pudding, which, although not the most delicate of desserts, is excellent. I like to accompany it with a good late, and the pleasant atmosphere of the back of this place. Enjoyable and tasty!

It was a wonderful ending to a fabulous night. We came upon that place by accident and what a great mistake that was. We were given a menu that was a electronic tablet, all of the dessert items had pictures which made my decision so much easier to make up. Sophia our server was outstanding and patient with my guests... More

La Dolce Vita is a wonderful place to meet with friends for coffee (or drinks) and desserts. The desserts are fancy but approachable and they even display them on a digital menu so you can see a picture of what you're buying. Really beautiful atmosphere and friendly staff.

Stopped in here at the recommendation of our waitress at the Chop House (the two restaurants are part of the same Ann Arbor restaurant management group). We had a great time, ordered special coffees (flaming!) and a dessert sampler, sat on the couch by the fireplace, and enjoyed spending time together. We will probably return in the future - pricey,... More

Hubby and I went for lunch and had the special, which was quite good. The pasta was cooked perfectly and the pizza was huge and yummy and it was supposedly a one person pizza. Will definitely go again.

So I have a weakness for this place. It is part of the corporate chain, Main Street Ventures; however, it manages to have the ambiance of a neighborhood hangout -- albeit for very wealthy people. Staff is fun and friendly and the room is just cozy, even though they ruined it a bit when they tarted it up with high... More

My husband and I have eaten at La Dolce Vita several times over the past few years. In all cases, the service and food quality was superlative. We've mainly eaten at La Dolce Vita for dessert, but have had a meal there at least twice. Mostly, we've had dessert on the main floor at one of the little seating areas.... More
