Visited La Dolce Vita in the end of September for lunch with my partner and her old university friend, and was not disappointed. We had 3 pizzas and as an Italian I felt a bit at home. The tiramisu was good, as well as the...More

I recently visited Dolce Vita in Tartu. I found the pizza really good and freshly made. The service was really fast and the staff very polite. Prices are good as well. I would definately go there again!

Literally, the best pizza in town. You can start from the first one on the menu and next time go further on. Plus atmosphere, good service and a charming terrace in the inn.

Best pasta and pizza with amazing venue and superb service. You can spend full evening drinking specially picked wine to go with your pasta and noone will ask "Would you like to pay and leave?"

If we hadn't checked for a great restaurant in Tartu, we would've missed this spot as you don't simply walk in since you have to go downstairs. But I'm glad we gave it a go as the food was just delicious. The waiters did a...More

Tasty white and red pizza. Wide range of delicious Italian food and local beer. 'A la Coq' beer was fresh and tasty. Nostalgic Italian music.

We had read the reviews and wanted to go. We were so lucky, or so we thought, to get a table around 6.45pm on a Saturday evening without a reservation. We saw lots of groups and couples turned away while we were there. The waitress...More

Meal is excellent, vines too, nothing critical to say about service. The restaurant is quite popular among Tartu people, sometimes it's quite crowded. You can see the Italian TV, buy some Italian delicacies.

The restaurant is a bit cramped, with many tables rather close to each other, but the service is good and the food is excellent! I especially love their pasta dishes.

I´m not sure. The restaurant is a quality place so I would assume that they do have gluten free options. They have a contact address where you can place your question about this issue.

La Dolce Vita is an Italian restaurant which opened its doors in 2003. Its Italian owners serve up traditional dishes from their country. Its pizzas are made in a wood-fired oven which is unique in Tartu, and there is a wide range of pasta dishes to choose from. Some pasta is imported from Italy, while the rest is made on site. The menu also features traditional meat dishes. The quality of La Dolce Vita's menu is reflected in its simple, authentic components: Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, tomatoes and olive oil. In the summer months you can enjoy the warmer weather on the restaurant's terrace. The restaurant itself is close to a beautiful park, which is the perfect place to enjoy the gelato (Italian ice cream) that the restaurant offers.
