Visited for an unexpected dinner with family and friends. Wow! Pasta all homemade, service is perfect. I have been to the best Italian all over Florida and NYC...this place is near the top of the list.

You would think you were in Rome. La Dolce Vita is a perfect sized restaurant with a perfect sized menu and winery list. Just enough tables so that everyone gets personal attention.

My sister and I enjoyed dinner here. Amazing food and service. I appreciated the gluten free pasta (gluten free bread would be nice also). Delicious, great ambiance! Magnifique!

Number 4 on TripAdvisor so it better be good, right? Not a disappointment at all. The place has a real Italian vibe--including our server who was Italian--and the Italian Movie posters on the walls. Our server was great at making recommendations--especially for the wine. The meal was served at the perfect pace and the appetizers and main courses were filling... More

Perhaps we chose the wrong menu items but none of our party were particularly thrilled with their meals. Staff very charming and friendly but maybe an off night for the chef.

I enjoyed the rigatoni with pancetta and onions. My wife had the branzino Mediterranean sea bass. Very reasonably priced. Service was good. We would go back.

What a fabulous experience. We noticed when we got there, that this was a locals restaurant. The staff were hugging and kissing the guests. By the time we left, we felt like locals. The employees were fabulous. We ordered Veal Marsala and a pasta dish I can't remember but which was fabulous. The service staff was amazing and made us... More

Fantastic wine list, homemade pastas, fantastic seafood dishes, every waiter is fluent in Italian (they all speak it with one another). Exactly what I was looking for.

This is a quaint Italian restaurant where most of the waiters are fluent in Italian. They have an excellent wine selection and you cannot go wrong with the Ravioli. I would recommend for a date night!
