My husband and I made reservations as they are accepted in off season. We were seated at a booth in the rear. The service was done well. The rosemary bread is yummy and so is the dipping oil. I had veal parm which was amazing. My husband had crab and shrimp al a vodka. Both dishes were excellent. Try the... More

I finally figured out how to dine at LDV. Generous portions have always overwhelmed me when we've dined here in the past. Last evening, I went with one of the specials, (excellent choice - hot, flavorful, nice presentation) and the arugula salad, (also great!). Nice loaves of bread with EEVO/pesto. Wine choice good. Price, fine. So, I figured out, (Weight... More

The restaurant is located in The Timbuck II Shopping Area which has several restaurants and many shops with unique and standard tourist items. The Sound is only visible from the second floor restaurants, no matter what the signs may say. The food here was very good as we had dinner and I wouldn't hesitate to return except I would prefer...

A nice discovery food was very good to excellent and service was very good. We did do a take out but sat at the small Bar and spoke to the staff and other guests. Nice friendly place.

Stopped here for a late lunch in Corolla. Food was very good. I had an Italian sandwich and my friend had a rosemary chicken salad on ciabatta bread. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Wait staff was friendly and did not have to wait long for our meals. Music was at a pleasant level so that we could have... More

Okay, when I think of what some one from another country envisions what an American's dinner plate looks like, welcome to La Dolce Vita. It's been awhile since we've dined here. Friends made the reservation. If you are on a serious budget and want to save money and your partner happens to order the same as you do...well then, you... More

We went here with a party of 5 adults and 2 kids. The service was friendly and the meal was delicious. The marinara sauce was sooo good, the pasta was fresh and the shrimp grilled perfectly. No complaints at all and I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for great Italian food.

This is one of the best restaurants in Corolla! Their food is incredible; it would be hard to be beat!!!! Every time we vacation at the OBX, we make sure to stop by for dinner at least once.

We visited for late lunch on Monday 09/26 and were so pleased with the taste and quality of the food. The pasta in a rosa sauce was so tasty without being heavy and the pizza (Nova Siri - Meatballs, spinach & garlic) was one of the best pizzas we have had. We highly recommend La Dolce Vita to anyone looking... More
