Really great food in this restaurant - a million miles away from standard chain italian places - everything cooked fresh to order and very friendly. Food gets a 5/5 - overall marked as 4/5 as it is slightly shabby and I do object to paying £4 for a small bottle of beer that costs the restaurant about 70p !

There's your everyday, good quality restaurant food, then there's food to savour like that served at La Dolce Vita. We started by sharing the carpaccio of beef, which proved perfectly balanced -- the rocket providing a peppery accompaniment to the salty undertones of the parmesan, matched with high quality truffle oil and melt in the mouth beef. For our mains,... More

( Mille Grazie, Luigi and Patricia) We ordered the Crostini - great tastes, highly recommended; the Granchio crab-WOW; the seafood spaghetti - beautiful, delicious mix of an Italian staple; and my favorite, the house made cannelloni - a triumph. Walked away savoring the magnificent tastes. We've eaten none... More

The food was fantastic and cooked to perfection. The staff were all extremely polite and friendly. The owners were great and found time to talk to their guests. You need to book a table well in advanced as this place is very popular.

My colleague and I decided to visit La Dolce Vita for lunch on Friday 12th as I had read good reviews on Tripadvisor and looked at their web site (Confusing..Stated £14.00 2 Course Lunch and then £15.00 on the menu when arrived). On arriving at 12.45 we was surprised to find us being the only customers throughout our meal but... More
