Recently while vacationing in Corolla, my group of 16 adults and children decided that we would go to dinner on Saturday evening instead of cooking in. We had no idea where to go or who could take a party 16 without prior reservations. On the refrigerator in our condo was a magnet advertising La Dolce Vita. We called and was... More

Food was great, service was great; what more can I ask for? I wish I lived closer so I could go more often.

Well worth a visit. This is a very small restaurant and the line to get in forms well before the 5:00 p.m. open. But, it is well worth having to wait to be seated. The menu offers variety to satisfy everyone. The food was excellent. The mini crab cake appetizer was particularly delicious. This is certainly a hidden gem in... More

We have been coming to Corolla for years with our family and friends. La Dolce Vita is the best pizza we have found that has really good taste and flavor. If you just need "Food" as my son in college says, go to Big Slice. If you want really good pizza come to La Dolce Vita,

First visit was with the family that included 3 picky teens. The selection of lunch items was fantastic - something for everyone. This year, just husband and I came. It was the same as we remember - friendly and cozy. Sandwiches are excellent - the bread is fresh and there is a choice for a side (chips, fries, salad or... More

First thing first - make a reservation. Apparently, reservations are big at restaurants in the Corolla area. Of the two we visited, neither liked walk ins. Second off, the food here was delish - although, it would have been nice if they offered a kids size pizza rather than having to buy a full pizza (but no worries, we just... More

Food was ok, but portions were huge! Most of my party took food home. Could it be more reasonably priced with reasonable portions? Service was good. I was with a party of 15, so serving was difficult. So much so that my food (the only one) was cold. Replaced without argument.

Really good pizza and salads. Highly recommend for comfort food on the OBX. Our family of 9 all got what they liked. Would try again and eat in to try the pasta.
