Italian cuisine with friendly prompt service. The food was above average. We enjoyed their veal, pasta & chicken dishes. They also accommodated one of our gluten free family members. We would highly recommend this restaurant.

I love La Vita Dolce. Every time I visit Lake Havasu, I make a point of visiting this restaurant. Our server was great, making us feel relaxed and not rushed, while still being attentive as well as offering great menu suggestions. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very comfortable and welcoming. I started with the lobster bisque, which was unreal;... More

The appetizers are delicious - especially the hot artichoke dip. It comes with fresh pita bread. During happy hour, you can't beat the deals.

Being we made a last minute decision for an overnight stay in Lake Havasu to see Christmas lights on the bridge, we assumed not much would be open. Our hotel told us of two places open...Dennys and La Vita Dolce. Decision was easy. Friendly staff, quaint atmosphere, and a great holiday menu. Portobello Ravioli, meat lasagna, bread, two glasses of... More

This place was awesome! They have a wide variety of great foods and you can tell that they put a lot of passion into their food. Everything was fresh and was well presented. The staff was great & the owners seem to be very involved. Definitely worth a stop if you are in town.

My family of 5 visited the restaurant on a Saturday night around 8pm just after the Parade of Lights. We were lucky enough to get seated within minutes of walking in the door.
