Three of us came here for the first time last night and it was great. We had putenesca, carbonara, and prawns & scallops. All were really good and so was tbe wine by the glass. Some on here have complained about slow service but we thought the service was just right. We will definately be going back.

We booked a table for 5 for Easter Monday a couple of hours beforehand which I thought was great as there were limited restaurants opened in Caloundra on Easter Monday. We arrived at 6pm and had no problems picking out delicious meals from the menu. I'm glad we arrived early as it did get very busy and there were limited... More

Nearly the only place in town open after 8pm, could not have been more accommodating. Pasta & seafood was delicious, signature cocktails tiramisu martini & Long Island tea were amazing & to top it all off service second to none. Thanks for a great last night out in Caloundra.

Good Italian food and a great location near the ocean at Caloundra makes this a great choice for lunch or dinner. We've been several times now, and if you like Italian cuisine in a semi-outdoor setting with great water views and good staff, La Dolce Vita should be on your to-try list. We'll be back.

Food was ok but service was atrocious. Had to ask multiple times for water and service. Avoid this place at all costs.

The food was very good, but unfortunately the long wait to eat ruined the night. Probably wouldn't go back.

Brilliant. Great menu and options. The food was great. The service was great. The price was just where it should be. Everyone enjoyed the food. When you have empty plates you know it was good. When everyone says when can we come here again you know it was a good choice. My only negative, and it's small, it was a... More

This restaurant is not on Trip Advisor but is located beneath the Rhumba Resort in Caloundra. Can you pls set it up as a restaurant in its own right so I can write a review.
Thanks, Kitty
