La Dolci Vita has been closed since 2012. While it was open the food and service was excellent, the parking was terrific and the location was good. There was no explanation, they just closed their doors and went out of business.

I would go there again. The wait staff were very good, prices reasonable, and since it is BYOB, you can save a few $$ on your wind during your Italian meal. I had a huge bowl of pasta, sausage, and broccoli rabe and it was...More

While visiting family in NJ, I took a group to this restaurant on recommendations of my sister. The place was not very crowded on a Sunday evening. The staff were attentive to us. We did not need reservations in this casual atmosphere. The menu was...More
