I am a local here a dine here often. It's great in the summer when the beach restaurants are packed and this one is busy but not an hour wait. They have piano music on the weekends, a good house Chianti, and great food.

La Dolce Vita Manteo is a local gem in the heart of the outer banks. This is not a typical outer banks tourist seafood eatery but rather a small Italian bistro where locals go for a fine home cooked pasta , pizza and or special treats We arrived about six and were promptly seated. I ordered a calm linquine pasta... More

Each time we venture to the OBX, we must eat at this restaurant. It was within walking distance from our B & B. The staff is friendly and offer suggestions but we always know exactly what we are going to get each time! Love it!

We always have the best food when we go here and it has become a regular place for our family. There is something for everyone and you can't go wrong. Also, the prices are very good.

Not sure what Italian food you are use to eating but at La Dolce Vita everything is made fresh from the Lasagna to cutting the calamari every morning. You cant get any more Italian that visiting Italy yourself. Regarding the service I am not sure what happened there and if it was a busy night understanding and patience would have... More

Food was not great, did you let your server know when you were asked how is everything? Pasta is made al dente and every dish is made to order. Not sure why your food wasn't hot and bubbling.

Hmmm, not sure about the salad issue, sounds like maybe it got mixed up with another customer who ordered a ceasar salad. The veggie Laz is our summer time special and I am not sure what was going on to just make your food ok. Only thing is did you tell your waitress? Service was great which is AWESOME so... More
