Fantastic evening had by all on Saturday evening, even being part of a table 12! The large quantity made no difference to the food quality, time that it took for our meal to come and service. Our starter arrived within 15 minutes, followed by our mains 30minutes later. It was a Saturday evening after all, which anyone dining out on... More

Decided to go to Hamble for the night with my 4 friends and no where had a table for 6 available so we tried La Dolce Vita and they managed to accommodate us. We enjoyed the LDV platter which had calamari, brie, whitebait, olives and bruschetta which was sensational. We all had different pizzas and they were probably the best... More

Sat in restaurant for over 1hr waiting for main course. Ordered a calzone, when it arrived it was freezing cold like it had been defrosted but not cooked. When I complained it was taken away with no apology. I then had to sit through the meal whilst I watched my friends eat their dinner. I had no dinner - the... More

I organised a social/fundraising evening for 38 people yesterday. I arranged a four course meal (with 3 choices) and I'm delighted at how well the evening went! Really lovely food with excellent presentation for all 38! Super friendly service and the feedback so far has been very good. Considering the restaurant was full, the way the tables were served was... More

So, La Dolce Vita is a small ish Italian restaurant outside of Southampton located in Hamble-le-rice. Its food is straightforward and fairly tasty - service is good - and all reasonably priced. What's to dislike? Nothing I can think of... Would I go back - well, I've been a number of times and will be returning again soon. Enjoy.

Thank 101byIain
