We ate breakfast and dinner at La Dolce Vita during our stay next door. The food and service was very good. The location is great, there is a road between the beach and the restaurant so it as close to the beach views as possible.

We had the most fantastic casual dining experience here. The wait staff were very attentive without being painful. Good smiles all around. We had the antipasto platter which was HUGE and Breads and dips. Shared the most amazing puttanesca. Lots of strong flavours. YUMMO!! Then we had a couple of desserts, but the Pannacotta was the dish of our entire... More

The Restaurant is opposite the beach in a prime location. My Partner is From Italian background so is very fussy with his food. The creamy pea and pancetta soup is a sure recommendation! It was delicious. I loved my Gnocchi with seafood, it was fresh and fluffy! Altogether a lovely meal with a reasonably priced wine list.Service was excellent.

It's nearly a year since we went to this excellent Italian restaurant on the waterfront at Caloundra, but I still remember what I ate there. The veal scaloppine was superbly flavoursome, and they had a very good selection of cocktails - we went back again to try some more, and back a third time simply for coffee and cake. Excellent...

Great Italian food in the heart of Caloundra. Their food is above basic Italian. High quality food with amazing taste and varieties yet affordable prices. Friendly staff especially Louige. Highly recommend.

We dined with our school age kids. We shared entrees and the kids had mains from the kids menu while we ordered full mains. The food was really good, everyone enjoyed it very much. The waitress could have been a bit more helpful and attentive. I overheard the other waitress telling the specials to the table behind us but our... More

Three of us came here for the first time last night and it was great. We had putenesca, carbonara, and prawns & scallops. All were really good and so was tbe wine by the glass. Some on here have complained about slow service but we thought the service was just right. We will definately be going back.

We booked a table for 5 for Easter Monday a couple of hours beforehand which I thought was great as there were limited restaurants opened in Caloundra on Easter Monday. We arrived at 6pm and had no problems picking out delicious meals from the menu. I'm glad we arrived early as it did get very busy and there were limited... More

Nearly the only place in town open after 8pm, could not have been more accommodating. Pasta & seafood was delicious, signature cocktails tiramisu martini & Long Island tea were amazing & to top it all off service second to none. Thanks for a great last night out in Caloundra.

This restaurant is not on Trip Advisor but is located beneath the Rhumba Resort in Caloundra. Can you pls set it up as a restaurant in its own right so I can write a review.
Thanks, Kitty
