La Dolce Vita is THE place to go for fantastic food, lovely staff and the warmest welcome and service that you could wish for. The restaurant put on theme evenings also and I had such a great, fun evening there when MoreTvicar played. I would recommend this restaurant and if you haven't been yet book a table without delay 5stars!

Had a fantastic meal on Saturday 29th. From the moment you step inside everything is perfect. The service, the food the setting. We had 2 different starters and both were really good then we both had a meal cooked by Giacomo at the table - fabulous. Then the sweet trolly. This is old fashioned eating at it best. We can not fault the food in anyway everything was perfect and we have made a new years resolution to go at least once a month in 2013.

Always a warm welcome with fish and meat dishes displayed for you pre-cooked. The superb flambe dishes are individually cooked at your table - the portions are quality and not small so don't fill up on too much bread whilst waiting. Local food is sourced when possible, and Giacomo and Daniella are definitely part of the village community now. Your reservations are timed, to help the chefs, so always try and arrive a few minutes earlier to savour the ambience - a pianist is present on some evenings. Good value for money

We celebrated our mother's 80th birthday with Saturday lunch at this first class Italian restaurant in the pretty village of Lamberhurst. We enjoyed pre-dinner drinks and nibbles whilst choosing from the comprehensive menu, which included specials explained with great care by the head waiter. The food was glorious, the service prompt and good humoured and best of all Mum was treated like a queen, including a rousing chorus of Happy Birthday to accompany the presentation of a delicious birthday gateau! All twelve of us, despite our wide age range and differing tastes, agreed that the whole experience couldn't have been bettered.
