We came here for a business dinner. Initially, I thought there was no vegetarian options. I couldn't understand the menu because it was "authentic". They need to translate within the menu to help. Good thing a had a "foody" with me. Once that was figured out, the food was excellent. I'm a small eater but I actually finished my dish... More

Pizza is authentic italian. I really enjoyed it. Family friendly and ambiance. Nibe bar area. I would say its a casual dinning place.

This quaint old house makes a great restaurant but be prepared to valet park. The bottom floor houses the bar, kitchen, and some of the tables. Many more tables (and the restrooms) are located on the 2nd floor. The menu isn't huge (the wine list offers more than the menu) but does have a wide variety of choices as well... More

This place has so many fabulous appetizers, pastas and pizzas that I never know what to order. If I lived here in Houston, I would go to this place every week and try everything on the menu. When you go, just order anything that meets your fancy and it will be fabulous.

This was a lovely place we stumbled across in Houston. The Pizza and pasta dishes were both fantastic! Only downside is a lack of a kids menu or kids proportioned meals.

Maybe I'm just getting cynical, but they seemed to try to hard to be trendy and different, but deliver too little in portions and interesting tastes. Best things we had were the appetizers - roasted fava beans, shredded brussel sprouts (like slaw) and calamari with orange and olives. All were simple combinations of quality product and all tasted very good.... More

They are not perfectly consistent but on a good night their pizzas are the best I have ever had. My family now rates pizza restaurants by comparing them to Dolce Vita. To score ten points they would have to be as good as the best pizzas we have had at Dolce Vita. Even when the pizza is not perfectly sublime... More

The pizza is absolutely the best, but you need to also try many other dishes as well. The crispy artichoke appetizer is fantastic, as well as the arugula salad. Don't worry about just getting the pizza choices on the menu (even though there are many(. They will make whatever combination you want.

A group of us wanted to try this restraunt. We tried a wide variety of appetizers. This included the shredded Brussels sprouts. Fried pumpkin and goat cheese. Mushrooms with mint and olives. Octopus with potatoes. Baby artichokes. All of theme were excellent. Then we had our main course. The pizza was ok. The crust was thin and tough. The paste... More
