Vita is dolce, when you enjoy a well-prepared meal. This place is ok but definitely has a few rough edges, and overall, a bit disappointing. The wild mushroom ravioli was unusually chewy and seemed like a frozen product, not homemade. The waitress asked if we "want to add some protein" which always make me think they'll sprinkle it with some... More

I had what is unquestionably the worst roast beef sandwich possible yesterday. Sad, dry, shredded, over cooked beef on a dry bun with bland asiago. How difficult is it to make a good roast beef sandwich?

Great staff and tasty cocktails, have been visiting this place for last two years and always a hit and success. Sometime you get a new bartender which is always fun because they are so eager and love to mix you up a lovely cocktail. Great people there!

Sad to write a review like this since it was my mom's birthday. Not sure what is going on with the drinks at this location-wine is fine but the mixed drinks are very weak and not up to par. The snickertini martini and razztini martini and birthday cake martini are very disappointing and are something to be desired. They weren't... More

It's a friendly place with eager to please staff. The decor, overpowering fragrance in the air and DIY decor says pub-trying-to-be-restaurant. The food was ok. Decent jerk chicken. Prices fair. We ordered a bottle of wine and the server opened at the bar and brought it to us opened. When I asked about that the server was perplexed. Sincere but... More

Visited before a Syracuse Stage Presentation. Nice menu and affordable pre-show specials. Calamari appetizer cooked well, with a very flavorable sauce. Eggplant rollatini very flavorable. Melbourne Chicken (grilled chicken,bbq, tomato,onion,bacon, cheddar with risotto liked very much as well. Desserts good as well. Service good, dining room very cold however.

A nice small bar near the university. A nice bar, decent service and drinks, and from what I could see, a nice food menu. Clean place, and outdoor seating too

I just returned from Dolce Vita. I sat at the bar for a good five to ten minutes and not one server was in the restaurant. I can't review besides sitting at the bar and not one person is in the restaurant. So I walked out. A shame because I wanted to try the food after the great reviews.

Just down the street from the Crowne Plaza,what looks like an ordinary bar turns out to be a gastronomic gem! The bruschetta was really tasty.... then the Caprese salad was top notch...but the best of all was the Crab Mac and Cheese...fantastic. This looks too well kept a secret...Syracuse...try it out!

Waitress was having a bad day maybe? We were very courteous and didn't ask for much. Incredibly rude, wow!
