Description: Serving the best Italian food in Fairfax City for over 21 years! A full service restaurant with both classic and inventive Italian dishes, and a romantic wine bar with expert wine list and shareable small plates all brought to you by Executive Chef Anthony Grasso and house Sommelier Matthew McGuigan. Locally-sourced meats and produce, homemade pastas and pizzas, and farm-to-table ingredients are our passion.

This is an Italian restaurant through and through. Their calamari is incredible - not coated in bread and fried - so you can taste it and it's tender. The sauces are delicious and don't overpower when they are not suppose to.

Took my Mother-in-law for her birthday dinner. We happened to be in town for a funeral the next day and wanted a low key family celebration dinner. Excellent varied menu, fair prices, and quaint decor. Staff very attentive, friendly, and knowledgable. Would definitely return!

This is our favorite go-to italian restaurant......we go several times a month! Joe and his wife Sharon are very personable and they along with their staff are attentive and approachable. Their goal is to provide a great meal with good wine at a good price in a family-oriented atmosphere. We will continue to support and recommend Dolce Vita!!

Dolce Vita has been a staple for my family for years. The service and food are top notch. You can always count on the food being excellent!!! If you are 4 or more people make a reservation if on a Friday or Saturday night. Enjoy!
