There were at least 20 different kinds of pizza and about the same of pasta. Dessert also was great. Price was reasonable and totally... More

La Dolce Vita has the best pizza in Estonia. This place has been here for years and it works... everybody loves it and the food is lovely. In summer, the terrace is the best place to sit out and enjoy the food, and the staff are really nice. I will always come back here because I know it is going... More

Pasta with a touch of cream and bacon, what else can you ask for on a hungover day. A le Coq on top of that, and you are ready to look the city around. Friend had a pizza, tasty and crusty.

Stumbled upon this place four years ago. Still busy (reservation needed to be sure of a table). Great atmosphere! For fans of pizza, pasta and all things Italian, this is a must.

If you want to be sure that you can get a table in this busy Italian restaurant (with an Italian chef) then book your table in advance. You can order anything from the menu, because they are all tasty.

Italian restaurant. Extensive menu for pizzas and pastas. The pastas was slightly salty for me. But otherwise the crowd does like it

The best pizza in Tarttu, possibly in whole Estonia! The service is fast and friendly even when the place is crowded, as it almost always is. We have only had pizzas there but also the pasta dishes look authentic and delicious.

My boo and I went to La Dolce Vita. We got the lasagna, some raviolis with walnut sauce, and both dishes were excellent. The lasagna was so fat, like endless-layers fat, and we left full and happy. On top of the two Peronis (italian beer) we ordered, we also had some ice cream. We loved the pastachio and vanilla. You... More

La Dolce Vita is an Italian restaurant which opened its doors in 2003. Its Italian owners serve up traditional dishes from their country. Its pizzas are made in a wood-fired oven which is unique in Tartu, and there is a wide range of pasta dishes to choose from. Some pasta is imported from Italy, while the rest is made on site. The menu also features traditional meat dishes. The quality of La Dolce Vita's menu is reflected in its simple, authentic components: Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, tomatoes and olive oil. In the summer months you can enjoy the warmer weather on the restaurant's terrace. The restaurant itself is close to a beautiful park, which is the perfect place to enjoy the gelato (Italian ice cream) that the restaurant offers.
