This is a nice place with good service and good food. Been here a number of times and never had bad food or service. Bartender always remebers your dinks even 3-4 months later when you show again

We have been to La Dolce Vita in Frankfort a number of times, but this was our first visit in a while. Our server, Claudia, did a good job - she was pleasant, able to answer questions about the menu, got our order 100% accurate, and did come to check on us. I was a bit disappointed by my linguini...

Very small place and the food is delicious. Had the veal and it did not disappoint. The desserts are to die for. Can't get a bad meal here.

Took the girl-friend and her kids out for dinner here. The service was excellent even though the restaurant was packed. The food was outstanding as was the dessert. I've been back twice since and would highly recommend them. Awesome Italian food!!!

This restaurant is small, the atmosphere warm and the food amazing. Extremely fresh seafood and top notch drinks. My team goes here every year with the boss for a Christmas party (we are a small group under 20 people). The service is always exceptional and the food I just can't rave enough. I have not had a bad dish there,... More

Love this place. Great ambience and food. I've tried the veal, which is phenomenal, so tender and tasty. The filet is one of the best I've ever had. Pork chops were great, too. They give warm bread with a choice of butter or olive oil and parmesan cheese for dipping. Their salad is wonderful, too. I even tried a chocolate... More

This is a really cute place with wonderful food. The only drawback is the sound level; we were here for dinner and wow, it got so loud we could barely hear each other. Other than the sound level, the service was attentive and the food was really good. We had chicken parmesan and chicken marsala along with tiramisu and cannoli.... More

This is my parents favorite restaurant; so I love when we are able to come here for dinner. The food is always so good, as well as the service. Lisa is the best waitress, she always makes a great dinner that much better! Best time to go is during the week when it's not as crowded or noisy.

Four of us went for dinner for my Boyfriend's Birthday. Food, cocktails and service was fabulous as always. If you like bakes clams, some if the best I've had are here.

La Dolce Vita is a solid pick for a nice meal. If you set near the bar, in front, you may find it too busy and noisy for your liking. Ask for a table in the larger back area, where you can have a nice conversation, and dispense with some the hustle and bustle. We have eaten here several times,... More
