“Authentic The Best Italian In Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

This place is absolutely wonderful. Its half a block from center street, it has lots of room even though it looks small from outside, great home made flavor and excellent service, i mean what can i say i get my drink, soup and dish in 15 minutes more or less, i get homemade bread and the best thing i pay less than 20 bucks. My favorite dish is the spinach calzone its the real deal not that folded pizza crap, ricotta, mozzarella and parmesan cheese covered in their delicious homemade ragu sauce mmmm. The meat lasagna is great even something as simple as the classic spaguetti is fantastic. all the primi priatti are good, it think ive had everything they offer, ravioli, chicken parm, the capresse is awesome. i love this place. definitely recommend it lots of food, very fast, good service and at a very very low price...

“Best Italian Food!! LOVE IT!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

La Dolce Vita is always a MUST stop when we are in Utah County. My family LOVES the food! The service is excellent and the prices are awesome for a family of 5. We always fight over the fresh homemade bread, can't get enough! The chicken pesto pasta and pizza are among my favorites as well as the minestrone soup and salad, the Italian dressing is homemade as well and it's sooo good! My little ones always get pasta grate and/or spaghetti with meatballs, my teenager loves any of the pizzas, fish, and calzones, my hubby, chef's special for sure! I also love that the atmosphere is so family friendly, it's like having lunch at grandma's house! I highly recommend this restaurant! love it love it love it!

“MMMMM Pizza Please”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

If I ever have a craving for REAL pizza, this is my place. I am very picky about the crust and cheese and it hits the spot EVERY TIME. My favorite menu items are: Spinach Calzone, Pesto Pizza, Pizza, Chef's combo, and the spaghetti. And the bread is delicious. Definitely recommend it. Large enough to accommodate big families and they cater! They catered a luncheon for me and I've had a few pizza nights there with friends and it is always delicious. Always so accommodating. Thanks Dolce Vita!

“Great place for lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

I eat at La Dolce Vita at least twice a month, always for lunch. It has to be one of the best deals in Provo. One of my criteria for the quality of a restaurant is the lettuce:if it's crisp and green and cold it tells me that someone is paying attention. The minestrone soup is very good. The service is always excellent. And the price is right. Mind you, this not 'gourmet' Italian. More friendly and real it is. The dining area is good for conversation with friends or co-workers. There is also a back room for privacy or meetings. Small but adequate alcohol menu. I recommend it!

“Excellent home made pasta!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

Must have made changes! Pasta(tortolinni) was super with fantastic white sauce. Bread was so so, but nice wine list. Buddy had chicken fettucini which was equally good. I don't eat Italian soup and salad was average. Prices were reasonable.
