Love this place. Great ambience and food. I've tried the veal, which is phenomenal, so tender and tasty. The filet is one of the best I've ever had. Pork chops were great, too. They give warm bread with a choice of butter or olive oil and parmesan cheese for dipping. Their salad is wonderful, too. I even tried a chocolate... More

This is a really cute place with wonderful food. The only drawback is the sound level; we were here for dinner and wow, it got so loud we could barely hear each other. Other than the sound level, the service was attentive and the food was really good. We had chicken parmesan and chicken marsala along with tiramisu and cannoli.... More

This is my parents favorite restaurant; so I love when we are able to come here for dinner. The food is always so good, as well as the service. Lisa is the best waitress, she always makes a great dinner that much better! Best time to go is during the week when it's not as crowded or noisy.

Four of us went for dinner for my Boyfriend's Birthday. Food, cocktails and service was fabulous as always. If you like bakes clams, some if the best I've had are here.

La Dolce Vita is a solid pick for a nice meal. If you set near the bar, in front, you may find it too busy and noisy for your liking. Ask for a table in the larger back area, where you can have a nice conversation, and dispense with some the hustle and bustle. We have eaten here several times,... More

My husband and I both ordered chicken dishes there tonight. The chicken was overcooked and did not have any flavor. Worst chicken vesuvio ever.

Our server, Janelle, was wonderful. She anticipated our needs before we even thought of them. She is a gem!! There were 4 of us friends out for an early dinner. One of the specials was Spinach and Artichoke Ravioli with chicken in a white wine sauce.. It sounded so good that we all ordered it. It was 3 ravioli and... More

The restaurant seemed quite dark when entering on a sunny summer evening, but the place is comfortable and cosy. The menu selection is nice, even if the pasta selection was limited (no tomato based sauce the day we dined there), and the food was good! We'll return to this restaurant :)

This is a great spot to eat at the bar. Friendly and knowledgeable bartenders and wait staff. The mushroom polenta is my favorite - I order it every time. Also, have dessert. The selections are pretty fantastic. It can be very busy on the weekends, so go early. They also have outside seating if you like to dine "al fresco."

Thank NovemberMom
