Spent the last 10 days in Dubai staying on JBR. Popped out for lunch and thought I'd try La Dolce Vita. Ordered the seafood pasta dish, and hate to say it, but it actually wasn't really very nice. The idea of picking your pasta and mixing with which ever combination you wish is a good one. Perhaps a different sauce would have got a different review, but I would recommend avoiding the seafood dish. The sauce is too heavy, gloopy and strong in flavour for a pasta.

Nice place to sit out and watch the world go by though. So perhaps just drop by for coffee instead.

We stayed in a hotel on the 'walk' and this was one of the options for eating. We walked in here and happy we did. The food was very good and the service was with a smile.The portions were good enough for one, though we shared.

We loved the ambience of the place and decided to try it out.. were not disappointed at all. We are vegetarians and went for the Italian cuisine. They had given us a complimentary bread basket. We ordered Minestrone soup, pasta and pizza, all of which was great. The space is a little tight though.
Would definitely recommend trying.

first time ever both me and my girlfriend left our plate almost the same as it came out of the kitchen. pasta not cooked wel, meat.....wel i think it was meat (it look like it) was terrible.

i never experience this before. even a microwave meal taste better. and the price was way to high for the quality (20€ pp) for nothing

restaurant looks nice, clean, but thats about it. a lot of other restaurants to enjoy your meal

Awesome food! Fun to have two cuisines. We enjoyed our meal here! Excellent menu. Had the pleasure of meeting the Head Chef of the restaurant. very extensive menu to choose from. The desserts were amazing! Great presentation!! I would go back in a heart beat!
