Having not been here for a few years we decided to give it another try - we were not disappointed and have to agree with other reviews this place is a little gem. The portion sizes and quality of food is superb - the waiter...More

Arrived on a quiet midweek evening. Received a warm greeting from the waiter and shown to our table. We ordered the Antipasti Starter to share (more than enough for two) which was lovely and I ordered lasagne and my partner ordered the carbonara for the...More

I have been thinking of visiting La Dolce Vita in Swindon for some time, but always seemed to go elsewhere. That was my loss and I wished I had visited La Dolce Vita before now! Four of us visited early on on a Friday evening....More

This is the best Italian food in Swindon, we know we've been to all the others. The service is attentive without being annoying, the restaurant immaculately clean and the food cooked to perfection and reasonably priced, what more could you ask for??

The best Italian Restaurant in Swindon. I have tried several places in Swindon saying there was Italian cuisine but none of them was authentic and good. At "la dolce vita" I felt like at home in Italy, perfect. 100% Italian. Worth every penny.

Returning to this restaurant after 'not bothering' for about 5 years. The new owners have a job to turn it around and should get there. The service was just great and could not have been more attentive and thoughtful. The menu was quite extensive and...More

Following the disasterous demise of the restaurant under the previous owners this really should have been rebranded to reflect the changes. This family run restaurant serves easily the best food in Swindon. Friendly, clean and a "nothing is too much trouble" attitude compliment this superb...More
