La Dolce Vita in Sandygate Rd is a rarity amongst the Italian restaurants in Sheffield! It is authentic Italian food and the owners/chef are actually Italian! A friendly and welcoming atmosphere, good choice of dishes, I would say it excels in pasta particularly but all dishes are delightful, and there is a good variety from which to choose. The chef, Antonio, is Sicilian and is on a mission to bring a taste of Italy to our British palates, ably assisted by his better half Danilla! There are early and mid week offers, a specials menu that changes regularly, a tapas themed menu and the desserts are irresistible. And it is BYO too! This place is ideal for a cosy meal for two or for bigger parties and special occasions! Believe me, they care about their customers and will make sure you have a wonderful time! This restaurant offers reasonably priced home made Italian cooking! And no, I’m not a relative....this is a genuine review to convey to you all that you will love La Dolce Vita and come back for more more more!

Friendly and enthusiastic, the couple running this lovely little restaurant are a pleasure to be with. Take a bottle of
Italian wine, forget you’re in Sheffield and enjoy an authentic meal from Sicily. The quality of the cooking is always high and authentic to Sicilian ingredients and styles (e.g. try the octopus starter - very different from calamari and the pizza has a crispy bottom!). Grazie e arriverderci!

Delicious food and great service - the garlic pizza bread was out of this world. It's lovely to find a small independent restaurant where the quality of the food is so important and the chef so enthusiastic. You can bring your own wine too.

Returned with adult daughter home from from uni. Greeted as if we were friends, attentive service, great food and lovingly prepared. Different specials to our last visit. Chef came out to check we were happy. I like to take my own wine and don't mind the cash only rule. Looking forward to our next visit.

On the plus side, this is a very pleasant restaurant with lovely staff and good food. The food is maybe a little on the pricey side but this is more than compensated by the bring your own wine policy.

On the negative side, they do not accept cards!! For goodness sake, this is 2017 and everybody has a card and expects to use it to pay for a meal! It seems insane that a restaurant would choose to inconvenience customers, and possibly deter them from coming again, just to keep prices a few pence lower.
