I've not been here for a while.. I've forgotten how good the food is and how reasonably priced. The calamari reminded me that we live on an island and the papardelle with beef strips had genuine Irish fillet beef. The Italians know how to cook...More

My wife and I ducked into La Dolce Vita to escape a sudden rain shower, I'm glad we did as the pizza was very good and the price was reasonable too. The service was top notch too.

I really cannot understand the great reviews for this place, like " best pizza in Ireland", "great atmosphere" ... ??? Maybe without these high expectations, I would have enjoyed a little bit more, but certainly, it was an ok place without anything extraordinary. The service...More

The food was delicious, the service good although a bit too hasty. The problem is that the day after we had both digestive issues... our dishes were made with crème fraîche so I'm guessing it mustn't have been very fresh. Or maybe something had been...More

Real Italian food at La Dolce VitaAuthor: Louise CashellCork recently welcomed a brand new Italian restaurant, La Dolce Vita, located on Proby's Quay. Although the business is only in its starting stages, La Dolce Vita, is quickly gathering a reputation for its 'real Italian food'.Some of this noteworthy food includes the pizzas, which are cooked on a brick oven, the only one of its kind in Cork. At La Dolce Vita, only the best and freshest ingredients are used and all pasta is made on site at the restaurant.The restaurant can cater for large bookings and would be an ideal venue for office Christmas parties.The romantic and friendly atmosphere only adds to the rustic, Italian vibe of La Dolce Vita who offer a variety of excellent Sicilian wines to accompany the wonderful dishes that are prepared by Sicilian chef Paolo Perrone.
