Expectations high for breafast for 6 on a sunny Sunday morning to start our holiday in Caloundra....sadly disappointment set in. Food was poor. The bruschetta was hardly that and not what you would normally expect...scambled egg piled high on soggy bread and avocado. Kids meals average, omlette overcooked and dry, coffee weak. Great location with poor food. We won't be... More

Just visited La Dolce Vita for dinner this evening with my husband and 10 year old son. They have a good selection to choose from on the menu, the staff are quite attentive and the location is superb. I ordered the Moreton Bay Bug Linguini which was delicious and very plentiful, my husband ordered the quail which sadly was dry... More

Great location but food and service disappointing. The Caprese salad was bland and boring but we hoped the mains would make up for it. Unfortunately, the Bug Linguini (with sundried tomatoes that I asked to be served without) was very average and the Veal that my wife had was tough and lacked flavor. Service was slow and at one stage... More

Very nice restaurant in a enviable position with water view. Nice modern premise even if it is not too big is very accomplished. Good food and very nice fresh daily made Gelato. Staff available to assist you as soon as you walk into the business. It is worth a visit.

We came to the restaurant twice returning after a great lunch. Sampled the cocktail menu which was great with the owners very friendly. Food was delicious on both occasions and we will come back for another visit next time we are in town.

Came here for dinner because of proximity to hotel and good rating on TripAdvisor. I ordered a chicken risotto and quite liked it. Unfortunately, everyone else found their food quite bland. Unfortunately what really left an impression was that it took1hr 15min for our main course to arrive. When we started to eat it was already after 9pm.

Thank you La Dolce Vita staff for providing us with a fantastic dinner on our last night at Caloundra. All of the food was delicious and every member of our family thoroughly enjoyed their meal. This included the veal, calamari, the kids carbonara and pizza. Definitely worth a visit.

Thank Harmony M

Thanks, Kitty
