“is ok”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

The Caesar Salad is actually a grilled half head of romaine. The dressing is good, croutons are absent, and the dirty root end was left on the lettuce. I appreciate the fried capers, but the plain lemon wedges don't necessarily work with the "deconstructed" thing,, they need to be manipulated somehow. Needs more cheese too. The fried calamari is just average,, and lacking any crispness,, boring. The bagged lettuce garnish is limp and pitiful. The chipotle dip and sweet chili sauce were ok. Prices are a bit high. Not going back,, average doesn't cut it.....

“Good....not great”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Visited Dolce Vita before Syracuse Stage. Seems like we are always dealing with some minor issue before we can run across the street for the show. Last visit, the check was wrong. Charged for a bottle of wine which we didn't have. Prices are a bit heftier than Phoebe's. $6 for a bowl of meatless soup. $10 for a glass of Cabernet. Atmosphere is dark. Overall, I prefer Phoebe's.

“Great service, nice menu”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

We recently dined at Dolce Vita with some friends who were visiting from out of town. We arrived about 45 minutes before dinner was being served since we were coming from a basketball game. The bartender, who was also waiting tables, immediately invited us to sit down and have a drink. As soon as the chef arrived, he told us that we could order from the dinner menu, although it was still not yet dinner time. The server/bartender was extremely attentive, friendly, and very welcoming to us. We were treated to an array of international entrees from Dolce Vita's eclectic menu. Particularly delicious was the wild mushroom ravioli which was full of large chunks of a variety of mushrooms. We had a wonderful time, a tasty meal, and will definitely go back again.

“"Worldly" menu”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Choices of meals vary periodically providing exposure to foods prepared in ways unfamiliar to most American's taste - I say this in a positive way. This is a non-typical restaurant. Appetizers at the bar is a nice pre-theatre meal. Drinks are a tad expensive but preparation, service and presentation is very nice.

“Eat here its worth it!”
Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

Great food... Out of a lot of stuff... Worth the visit... Waitress was pleasant... Construction outside should not keep you from going... A new favorite little spot to pop into in short notice.
