We went to this restaurant on our first night in Fort Lauderdale as it is across the road from the hotel and it turned out to be brilliant. Unlike most of the places we have eaten on Florida, quality is a priority over quantity and you get an edible amount of fantastic food. Also quite a few specials and a good wine list, though they could do with a few more being available by glass. I would recommend the risotto, ravioli looked fab too.

We happened upon La Dolce Vita because we were at a gallery opening nearby with a friend. The food was tasty and the pasta homemade. We started with salads which were fresh and delicious. I had the lasagna which I often hesitate to have in a restaurant. It was quite good. My only issues were the portion was fairly small and there was a lot of sauce; it was almost swimming in it. It was tasty though.

Small restaurant so make a reservation. All pastas made fresh. We had the eggplant and arugula salad to start and both were very good. We had pasta La Dolce Vita and Ravioli as entrees. The food was great and the sauce on both the entree and eggplant appetizer were excellent. Good wine list with many reasonable Italian wines. Very good service. Desserts change daily.
