Seriously good food. I have been visiting them for years, pretty much every time when I am back in Tartu. Very good quality food and prices are ok. The only thing what takes a point down would be customer service (not always though). I think...More

This place has really kept its standard throughout many years. La Dolce Vita is hands-down one of the best italian restaurants in my book - great service, great food and cosy atmosphere.

Nice Italian restaurant, good atmosphere, summer terrace in the backyard. We enjoy beef-carpaccio, pizza and canneloni. All the food was good. The service was good and quick, during dinner time I would recommend reserving a table if more than 2 eaters

This is a really busy restaurant in the old town of Tartu. The extensive menu is typical of an Italian restaurant and the service was very efficient. I was there with a big group and this caused them no major problems.

I´m not sure. The restaurant is a quality place so I would assume that they do have gluten free options. They have a contact address where you can place your question about this issue.

La Dolce Vita is an Italian restaurant which opened its doors in 2003. Its Italian owners serve up traditional dishes from their country. Its pizzas are made in a wood-fired oven which is unique in Tartu, and there is a wide range of pasta dishes to choose from. Some pasta is imported from Italy, while the rest is made on site. The menu also features traditional meat dishes. The quality of La Dolce Vita's menu is reflected in its simple, authentic components: Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, tomatoes and olive oil. In the summer months you can enjoy the warmer weather on the restaurant's terrace. The restaurant itself is close to a beautiful park, which is the perfect place to enjoy the gelato (Italian ice cream) that the restaurant offers.
