I brought an old friend to dinner and managed to get a table. Warning: get a reservation because this place is a madhouse regularly. But once we got our table and enjoyed the amazing food, it's easy to know why there is a line out the door for people to sit down! Easily Lemont's highest quality fine dining offering.

Always GREAT food. Have never had a bad meal yet. Sit down or take out - Delish!! House salad good, a little too much dressing for me, so next time I had it on the side -perfect. Always check out "the board" specials are fantastic!

I cannot tell you what a marvelous little gem this restaurant is ! Marvelous, authentic food....huge portions...fabulous service. Enjoy Sinatra music while snacking on the fresh, hot bread with oil and Parmesan cheese. Cozy atmosphere and you feel right at home. What the old Clara's on 83 used to be.

Four of us visited on a Friday night without a reservation. We were told it would be about 35 minutes for a table. We were lucky to get four seats at the bar and the bartender was quite friendly and lots of fun. There were several seafood specials for Lent and the waitress described them for us. The specials are... More

Went there for a 21st. birthday party with family food was ok I thinkit is a little to pricey. We had a spot upstairs which was nice as I noticed down stairs is to crowded. I would probably never go for a diner as I have before because it seems like they pack you in like sardines and food is... More

One of our (husband's and I) favorite, if not the favorite Italian Restaurants. Always consistent. Have never had a bad meal. Tables a little tight. Very excited that the new owners accept reservations for couples now. Best sausage and peppers ever. Shrimp franchaise outstanding. Specials always wonderful.

We have dined at La Dolce Vita several times, and I keep expecting them to mess it up at least once. Fortunately, it's been a winner every time. Most recently, we were there for my wife's birthday. Two of us ordered the specials, and one ordered off the menu, and we all left happy. The Ossobuco Tortellacci special, in particular,... More
