This is a very popular restaurant here with locals. The food is good and the service is good but you would expect more for the prices. This is not a $$-$$$ type of restaurant but way more expensive. Now you are warned.

All our meals were very tasty in a generous portion size (octopus, polenta, calamari, gnokki and veal chop). Fabio surprise us by offer us a... More

What a wonderful dining experience. We had the opportunity to dine outside. Service, by Mauro, was great. We were able to meet the owner & the chef. Recommendations proved to be very valuable - especially the homemade pasta w/ lamb Ragu - outstanding! Tiramisu was delicious! Highly recommend.

Used Trip Advisor to try a new dinner spot. This place was awesome. Authentic Italian food. Even the staff was speaking Italian. Service was exemplary, homemade tiramisu was great! Just had the leftovers and can't wait to go back!

Love the food, wine and service is outstanding. The waiter spoke to us in Italian when we asked him to and it just made it even more authentic. =) Atmosphere inside is very nice and I highly recommend. It gets crowded so plan accordingly.

Very pleasant evening with the ambience befitting for a friends birthday dinner. The food was excellent, service impeccable and the server made it a point to check back regularly to check everything was to our liking. The gnocchi bolognese was delicious. Well worth a visit

Once again we visited La Dolce Vita while vacationing in Florida. Our meal was absolutely stellar. The food, service, and atmosphere were fabulous. We started with the Polipo Alla Gringlia con Aioli, which was grilled octopus marinated in lemon zest and parsley with a smoked aioli. It was perfectly prepared. I chose the Chitarrina Al Ragu D'Angelo for my main... More
