Visited again.. It's been 4-6 months. They are now closed on Sundays and Mondays... Yet another new bartender, who was very attentive. Our crawfish appetizer. Hot, fresh...simply fried crawfish. Not sure why this is Italian, but it was good. Garlic bread and marinara were ok...More

A favorite of ours through the years with its romantic setting, but disappointing this time. Their delicious complimentary bruschetta no longer served. Out of bread, out of the only appetizer we wanted, out of my husband's wine. Wondered aloud why someone couldn't run next door...More

Excellent food. A great place to frequent for birthday celebrations and other important family celebrations because of the food, not the service o cold and insincere welcome upon arriving

New Year's eve we were a party of seven at La Dolce Vita about 6:30, before the rush. Nice setting for a S/C restaurant, promptly seated, all things going well. Waiter, Brock, was attentive, courteous, friendly, looks like a good evening. And then we ordered....More

In Italy the sweet life flows like wine through the daily living of the people, down boulevards and generations, passed shops and squares and from fountains that grant you wishes. Little by little our wishes are coming true, to share the sweet life with friends who appreciate the charm and the elegance of Italy. The ancient Romans said life is short, art is long; we believe La Dolce Vita is an art. This is our motto at La Dolce Vita! Good food and great wine equals great company. From the time you arrive the ambience will take you away, you will feel as if you are in Trattoria in Italy. From our family to yours bon appetite! Saluti!
