This place is a good, authentic Italian with a wide range of classical Italian dishes. Food is tasty and reasonable. I think menu could be cut down, always looks better to have a concise menu, gives feeling that food is freshly prepared. However, I would...More

We enjoyed this restaurant. There was a good selection on the menu and two of us had the crab and lobster ravioli. Delicious. Staff were helpful and friendly.

Being Italian, when it comes to pizza, we are very very very fussy. We've had some nice pizza experiences in Co. Cork and decided to try this new one almost by chance. Our expectations were even exceeded. They brought us a complimentary welcome by the...More

I ate at La Dolce Vite during my last evening in Cork. The staff are kind and helpful and the food is excellent (even though my judgement is partial since I'm an Italian myself!). I recommend eating here.

The best restaurant in Cork. Authentic Sicilian food, nice atmosphere and very nice people. Try pasta alla Norma, you won't regret it :-)

Real Italian food at La Dolce VitaAuthor: Louise CashellCork recently welcomed a brand new Italian restaurant, La Dolce Vita, located on Proby's Quay. Although the business is only in its starting stages, La Dolce Vita, is quickly gathering a reputation for its 'real Italian food'.Some of this noteworthy food includes the pizzas, which are cooked on a brick oven, the only one of its kind in Cork. At La Dolce Vita, only the best and freshest ingredients are used and all pasta is made on site at the restaurant.The restaurant can cater for large bookings and would be an ideal venue for office Christmas parties.The romantic and friendly atmosphere only adds to the rustic, Italian vibe of La Dolce Vita who offer a variety of excellent Sicilian wines to accompany the wonderful dishes that are prepared by Sicilian chef Paolo Perrone.
