We really enjoyed the service and the menu. The owners were kind and came to the table to see if our family enjoyed the mean. I loved the pasta and meatball platter. They also have a very good selection of wine which made us very happy. We highly recommend.

My boyfriend and I ate here on our second to last night in the area and it was the perfect romantic setting. We arrived for an early 5:30pm dinner and as the sun continued to go down the outdoor seating area turned into a magical, romantic courtyard. The service was excellent and the food was great! I was disappointed not... More

This restaurant has very good Italian food. The menu offers a good selection that will please just about anyone. The wait staff is attentive, helpfully and friendly. I recommend eating on the patio vise inside. They let us bring our own bottle of alcohol which was very nice of them. The food was served quickly and hot.

All six of us enjoyed very different and delightful meals. The seafood with mushroom cream and tomato sauce was scrumptious. The chicken parmigiana was also very good. We recommend the tuna tartare as well. It has a nice atmosphere. It was busy and the waiters were hustling to do their best.

I am so glad our Airbnb was right next door to La Dolce Vita. We stopped in for dinner on our second night and we were blown away - the food was delectable! We started with the Buffalato - which is basically a caprese salad with prosciutto - honestly the best I've ever had (& I always get this at... More

Had dinner at Dolce Vita last night with the family. The owners are Italians from Rimini, which is in the central-north region of Emilia Romagna and is famous for outstanding pasta, tortellini and prosciutto as well as for hospitality. To my delight I found all of the above at Dolce Vita. Stefano (one of the owners) and Daniele (the waiter)... More

My wife and I both had the hand made lobster ravioli. It was absolutely delicious and will definitely come back to this restaurant. The mint favored lemonade was also great and be sure to leave room for the decadent lava cake, it was out of this world!
