Very nice restaurant in a enviable position with water view. Nice modern premise even if it is not too big is very accomplished. Good food and very nice fresh daily made Gelato. Staff available to assist you as soon as you walk into the business. It is worth a visit.

We came to the restaurant twice returning after a great lunch. Sampled the cocktail menu which was great with the owners very friendly. Food was delicious on both occasions and we will come back for another visit next time we are in town.

Came here for dinner because of proximity to hotel and good rating on TripAdvisor. I ordered a chicken risotto and quite liked it. Unfortunately, everyone else found their food quite bland. Unfortunately what really left an impression was that it took1hr 15min for our main course to arrive. When we started to eat it was already after 9pm.

Thank you La Dolce Vita staff for providing us with a fantastic dinner on our last night at Caloundra. All of the food was delicious and every member of our family thoroughly enjoyed their meal. This included the veal, calamari, the kids carbonara and pizza. Definitely worth a visit.

Hubby said that we have saved the best till last! On the last day of our 2 week stay in heaven/ Caloundra, we tried this place, as it was just around the corner from our accommodation & we had walked past it daily. We loved so many things about it. The view was awesome, the menu choice was great, the... More

I had high hopes for this place, the scenery from the cafe is beautiful. Unfortunately, this would have to be the worst breakfast I have had. Although the menu was enticing the food was nothing short of disappointing. The scrambled eggs tasted revolting and the bacon was absolutely woeful. I am not sure how you could serve bacon like this... More

Popped in here recently for the first time with a friend just looking for a snackish/light lunch. It wasn’t too busy, maybe a bit too early for the full-on lunch crowd, but we decided on an indoor table as it was a tad windy with a bit of a southerly but I can imagine sitting out the front in the...

We arrived about 7pm with our two children. I'd say they would have been about 1/3 full. Ordered a steak, risotto and two kids meals (Margherita pizza and steak). Kids meals arrived after 45minutes. Had to steal a few bites of the pizza cause I was so hungry and it was pretty good. At 1hour our meals finally arrived but... More

Decent menu, reasonably priced. The first occasion we ate there we enjoyed so much we returned the following night..... oh dear, not a good choice. How a place can be so different on consecutive days is unbelievable. Can't even say the dishes we ordered were good because they didn't even arrive!! We ordered simple main course pasta dishes with garlic... More

This restaurant is not on Trip Advisor but is located beneath the Rhumba Resort in Caloundra. Can you pls set it up as a restaurant in its own right so I can write a review.
Thanks, Kitty
