We enjoyed a pleasant dinner at the bar. We've been there twice and find it to be a wonderful family-owned and operated restaurant. Their wine by the glass is a perfect offering after a day on the lake. I enjoyed a side order of meatballs and spinach, perfect portion side. My husband enjoyed his shrimp scampi with angel hair pasta.... More

We've eaten here three times for dinner, brought our family here when they came to visit. Food-service are always good, and the bar area has a nice atmosphere. We've also heard they have music on certain nights but we haven't tried that yet

We live in this great town, travel a lot. We had just returned from the Bahamas for a birthday trip for my husband, didn't want to cook so went to one of our favorite restaurants. Colton was our server, also bartender for the entire restaurant, couldn't ask for a more attentive server, he went out all out. I had the... More

What a great find. Great food, good prices, fantastic service. What more needs to be said? The total evening was enjoyable from the time we arrived to the time we left. My rack of lamb was done to perfection, chicken picata (gluten free) superb, veal picata, woweser! This place is obviously THE place to go. Reservations are strongly recommended.

We were on a cross-country road trip and spent the night here in Lake Havasu City. After I checked into our motel, I went to TripAdvisor and saw the good reviews for La Vita Dolce and decided to give it a try. We arrived just before 5:00 PM and Erick asked if we had reservations, I told him we did... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by family members who visit the area each winter. We made reservations, were seated promptly, and enjoyed an amazing meal. I ordered one of the specials, butternut squash ravioli, and I can honest say it was the very best that I've ever had! My husband had the veal parmesan, which he also raved about.... More
