“second visit”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

this is my second time at la dolce vita and i was not disapointed. I had a lamb dish and it was cooked to perfection and so tender, so well done Laura who is the chef and the owner. She should be very proud of her staff as they look after you so well. This has got to be the best italian restaurant in Dumfries and Galloway. P.S. try the gamborini for a starter it is to die for.

“Very enjoyable meal”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal here - pleasant surroundings and staff. I had the best mussels I have ever had, in a garlic cream soup - excellent.

“Wedding Anniversary”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

We had a lovely meal in this beautiful restaurant which is very clean and the decor very pleasing. We both had a lovely starter, then I had tagliette carbonarra my husband has the best pizza he has had for a long time. We had coffee and tablet instead of a sweet. The house wine was very pleasant. I would certainly recommend this restaurant either for their early bird or their a la carte.

“WONDERFUL”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Feel we had to write a review. We have been to La Dolce vita before, it was our wedding anniversary, and went with friends with friends who hadn't. The food as usual was outstanding. ALL the staff, without exception, are brilliant and cannot be more professional. It is a family run restaurant, and their hard work, is to be commended. One comment we would give is to those who moan about the service, may we suggest if you want FAST food, there are other well known places you can go. La Dolce Vita, is a family run restaurant and their hard work to produce excellent food should be commended. One comment is for those who are negative particularly about slow service, if is fast food you want, there is a very well known place you can go to!! Thankyou again, Laura and all your staff.
