Great place for a great time
What a wonderful place to celebrate a birthday with out of towners. Food and wine were so good and Terry (the owner) made sure everyone was well taken care of. Great neighborhood, great time. Highly recommended.

I love their fried mozzarella.
I love their fried mozzarella. And even though it is no longer on their menu, the manager asked the chefs to prepare it with what they had. Fabulous service every time Im there. Lifelong customer for sure.

I have always wanted to go
I have always wanted to go to La Dolce Vita. Little Italy is such a hotspot for restaurants and La dolce Vita is one of the reasons Little Italy is so popular! Genuine Italian food, good wine and a fine ambience! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. You can't go wrong!

Enjoyed our visit
Group of four....did not know what to expect. Everything we ordered was very good. Only complaint we had was our salads were served on warm dishes. I prefer salad on a nice cooled plate.

Lovely table for 9 - a perfect
Lovely table for 9 - a perfect square, we could all see each other. It was a bit loud, but that's ok. They were very accommodating of us all, made special drinks for us, brought us out an extra dessert - strawberries with ricotta for free. Service was great, everyone was kind and fun!

wonderful dining experience
We were treating our friends to dinner to celebrate their wedding and it was a great dining experience. Waiter was wonderful and he recommended a superb bottle of wine. Would go back again!

With the help of a waiter
With the help of a waiter who we hailed after waiting at a table with a speaker blasting in our ears, we were pleased to receive excellent, enthusiastic service at a quiet table. The food was excellent and the service was first rate.

Brought a group of out of towners and we had a very nice time, great service, very delish dinner. Most of us had some pasta. One ordered the day's special, a chicken dish, and thought it was very tasty. Wine list was pretty good. Waiter brought a big bowl of fresh strawberries with whipped ricotta cheese to finish our meal. Everyone enjoyed their dinner.

Service was Great
I'm not sure what his name was, but the gentleman who waited on our table (who was also working behind the bar) was very attentive and friendly. Since we were dining with 3 children under age 7, that was appreciated. We ordered 3 pizzas, and they were served hot and fresh. The pizza was good. Probably not what I would order were I dining without my children, and probably not what I would go there for, either. Nonetheless, someone had given me a gift card and I wanted to use it, we needed a quick place for dinner, and I didn't have time to get a sitter. It all worked out. They were kind and accommodating of us and the fact that we were dining with little kids. I appreciated that. Would definitely recommend to friends. Thanks again.

Great neighborhood gem
Absolutely love eating on the back patio. The staff is great, very attentive. Food is average Italian. The best thing we got was the chicken parm. A little disappointed with the. bruschetta- the bread was soggy, not toasted or crisped. The ravioli was nothing special. The grilled vegetable appetizer was quite good- a mix of zucchini, eggplant, tomatoes, asparagus with a marinara sauce. All in all, we love the out door dining, but overall were not wowed with the food.

Had great service sitting
Had great service sitting outdoors. Pete was our server. Food was good and portions were good. Glad we gave it another try because it's been a couple years and last time we came it seemed portions weren't as good.

Great Pasta in Friendly Local Place
The pasta was perfect, not overcooked. It's a pretty boisterous, informal atmosphere on a summer evening, which is just what we wanted as a place to meet extended family. The service was a bit slow, but once they got going, they were very friendly.

The Dinner was Great!
My guest and i had a great time at La Dolce Vita. Our server Jose was awesome. He lead us all the way through and I am glad we took he's advice, from the food to the wine (Zenato). What a great wine. The service was great! Keep up the good work Jose. We’ll see on the next one. I hope your there when we comeback.

Great food and accommodating staff
This is one of my favorite Cleveland eateries. I am a vegetarian, and there are plenty of creative options. I was with two other people, and one entree was not hot, but that is the only criticism of the food. It is a very quaint and unique place to eat out.

Great place to eat and decompress
After a long day my wife and I wanted a dining experience that was totally self contained. La Dolce Vita did just that, took care of everything before we even asked. Tremendous food and service, fast friendly and efficient. A great place to go to eat and relax and feel comfortable.

better service this time
Overall better experience this time around; service was slow the last time we were there. Food is always good.

Great easy night
Great place for a nice romantic night. Making an online reservation was so simple. Even though we ran fifteen minutes late, we had no problems getting seated. Cheap valet parking, great food and attentive service made this date a no brainier. Every time we go its an awesome experience.

The ONLY complaint I have is that they were out of meatballs. It was not a busy night for them, so how does an Italian restaraunt not have meatballs?!

We had a great time last weekend at La Dolce Vita. The food was incredible and the service was fun, friendly, and entertaining. I'd highly recommend it -- such a great little spot in Little Italy!
