“Love La Dolce Vita in Manteo”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

We have found our favorite restaurant in Manteo. My husband and I are starting a tradition of riding our motorcycle to Manteo each Independence Day for the glorious fireworks show and Military bands. Wanting Italian food we looked across the street and there is was! La Dolce Vita! Walked in and the piano music was absolutely wonderful. We sat right beside the piano. The pianist was very friendly. The owners made a good decision to add that. The food was delicious! Very friendly staff. We are going to include a visit with them each year when we go for our Independence celebration on July 4th! I have already recommended it to several friends.

“Great!”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

We had a great time tonight! Our food was great and the Tuxedo bomb chocolate dessert was the best! Our waiter David was really on top of his game! The piano player was really talented and a very nice touch! We will definitely be back!

“Deliciousness with great service”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

If you are in Manteo, you must dine in at this restaurant. The food was fantastic and the service was great. It was so good that we could have eaten here during our entire weekend stay. I will definitely eat here again.

“Best of the visit!”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

During my visit to the OBX w a friend, we ate out for every dinner, and La Dolce Vita was, by far, the best. My friend absolutely inhaled every bite of her lasagna! Our waitress was prompt, friendly, knowledgeable, and most importantly, honest. When we went to leave, she brought back my change, and I handed her what I thought was around $12.00 for her tip. As I was walking away, I realized I inadvertently gave her $20, but I wasn't going to chase her down to get the money back. She actually came back and asked if I meant to give her $20, telling me there was also a $5 in what I gave her. Because she came back and asked, I told her yes, I did mean to give her $20. I've never given a 30% tip before, but with that one act, she earned every dime.

“GREAT FOOD & SERVICE!”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

This is an awesome family-friendly restaurant! The food is simply amazing! The Carbonara and Spaghetti with home made meatballs are among our faves! If you're lucky enough to score David as your server, you will surely be taken care of, as his awesome attitude and witty humor make you feel right at home!
