My wife and I went here for lunch. We just wanted something light so we had the Pizza and it was great! We asked what the Fresh Catch of the Day would be so we could come back for Dinner. The waiter was so excited to show us the Fresh Catch, he even showed the Fisherman that caught it. We... More

We were enticed to dine here by the waitstaff as they anxiously sought customers during this very slow time of the year. All the pasta is handmade and they have an extensive menu of Italian and alternative choices such as fish. The wait staff were beyond attentive and made sure you pleased with your selections. In fact, they offered to... More

We had a lovely dinner with some incredible homemade pastas. The alfredo sauce is creamy and the pasta was cooked perfectly. My daughter had the homemade ravioli and loved it. We started with a pizza, had three alfredo dishes including a shrimp dish, and the ravioli and three glasses of wine for $64. Great value!

The pizzas are wonderful. The homemade crusts are crispy and light. Also, the fresh seafood was prepared perfectly. We loved the Mahi Mahi. Another delicious dish was the lobster ravioli. Mouth watering!

I got the fettuccini Alfredo with Pollo! It was excellent! The pasta was homemade I believe it said and made all the difference! Cream sauce was plenty and delicious! My husband had the Filet Mignon. It was a special that evening and was drizzled with cream sauce. He really enjoyed it. Would recommend this place! Service was kind.

Our family has eaten here several times over the past three years. The food and service are consistently good. The owner makes a point of dropping by to check on the service and is very hands on. Have never had a poor meal at Dole Vita.

I spent one night with my family and friends. We found a good selection of pizzas, cook In the tradicional style. Pizzas are of good size. One must be patient because service is very slow. At night there is brezze from the ocean, and In a clean night, the moonlight is amazing.
