A lovely evening
Service is outstanding. For example, when asked what Lillet (an ingredient in my cocktail) was, the waiter brought a small glass of it to try, along with his explanation. Food was very good. Restaurant was not too busy so it was quiet and romantic. We really enjoyed our dinner.

Good but not great
I was expecting a little more for the price and location. Pasta was good but cesear salad was bland. Wine list was also not so great.

A regular stop of mine whenever I'm in Beverly Hills. La Dolce Vita has always been consistently good, with great service.

Had a great time!
The entire staff, and I mean the bartenders and wait people were fun with my group of 5. My (grown) daughter's had a great time and were impressed. Trust me, they're hard to impress! My now 2nd favorite place to have dinner! A place to re-visit. Only 15 tables so you better make reservations. Only negative...my plate came out a bit on the not hot side of temperature, other than that, it was very good!

The food service and ambiance
The food service and ambiance are outstanding. One can actually have a conversation and the people you are with can hear out.
I rate La Dolce Vita outstanding.

My two friends and I had a lovely evening at La Dolce Vita. From the bread, through the appetizers and main courses, to the desserts, everything was delicious. The ambience was amazing...I really felt like I had been swept back to the old days and Frank Sinatra himself might just walk through the door. Patrons ranged from a darling elderly couple sitting next to us, all dressed up, to a young couple more casually dressed, to a large family of several generations enjoying a great time. The service was top notch and very friendly, as well. A really special evening! I will definitely go back the next time I'm in Los Angeles.

Words cannot descibe...
Long story short, father had brought my mother here in late 60's. Husband brought me here for our 1 yr anniversary July 6th. The manager Alicia was superb & Adam our waiter was a true gem. We arrived & from the first moment staff spoke w/ us..it was pure heaven. Ambiance was romantic & intimate. Just like my mother described it back in the day when my father would travel from San Diego to bring her here. Food was excellent. Did not want to leave at all!!!!!!!

Last night a friend and I went to this restaurant for our first time during DineLA and it was a wonderful surprise! The staff were all very friendly and attentive, we even had the chef stop by to see how everything was! I had the calamari it was perfect, my friend had the salad which was big! For dinner I ordered the Pesto Linguini with artichoke hearts and yum! She ordered the Chicken Parmesan and cleaned her plate! The cannoli was good to the last bite :) We came before the dinner rush , it was quiet with a few people talking around us and Frank Sinatra playing in the backround along with plenty of photos of him around the restaurant.

I did enjoy my filet mignon
I did enjoy my filet mignon & prawns; however the prawns were more like shrimp scampi. Basically, there is a difference between shrimp & prawns. The menu said prawns, hence I expected PRAWNS!

Could be just the place!
Great place for a special occasion with someone you are trying to get closer to. Great place for a power dinner! Great place to take your grandparents or a great place to have an intimate dinner. Great staff! Great looking bartenders and hostess.

Fantastic First Time Visit
My husband and I along with two friends visited La Dolce Vita for the first time after hearing about it on the Vintage Los Angeles Facebook page.
This restaurant has been in business for years and we don't know how we didn't find is sooner (thanks Vintage LA!).
We were welcomed immediately and sat within 3 minutes. The manager greeted us, chatted with us a bit and even treated us to a dessert after we finished our meal (she was the best!).
The food was wonderful, the service excellent, the food (including the rolls) nice and hot. We will definitely return!
It was a lovely evening all around. We can see why they have been in business for so long (the restaurant only seats 60 people - so it's nice and cozy. There is a nice little bar)

Very lovely place. Food is great and the service is amazing. They really go out there way for there customers. We were running very late and they still were able to seat us. Our waiter bailey was very attentive. Its nice and quiet the lights are dimmed very romantic. Mybf and I came here when we got together n have return for our anniversary. A sweet getaway.

An old restaurant turned new
I never knew this place even existed because it is so hidden among all the other Beverly Hills got spots. But La Dolce Vita was fantastic. The manager was a pleasure to speak with and hear the history of the restaurant. The waiter, Jose, gave us free dessert for bring first timers and the food was probably in the top 3 Italian places I've eaten on the west coast. Highly recommended.

One of the best restaurants around
The restaurant staff was outstanding. The food was exquisite. Their interior decor made it ever more romantic and warm. Great place to do business dinner or lunch. Would recommend to all business classes.

Worth the price
Perfect for a quiet romantic evening or an dining with important business clients. Public parking is a block away and free after 6pm on weeknights. Dinner for 4 with dessert and 2 glasses of wine each: $310.00. That's actually cheap for Beverly Hills.

Old World Charm
The only negative to our dining experience was feeling a bit rushed in our ordering. After ordering drinks, the head waiter was back to our table a couple of times to take our order, but we were not ready. The courses also came out very quickly in sucession. Just the opposite of most restaurants that are too slow...this was just a bit too fast.

Old world in a new world age
If you want to get away from it all and truly forget your cares for an hour or two, La Dolce Vita is the place. Food's divine, service is great and thanks to it's cozy booths, you really never want to leave.

Food was absolutely delicious
Food was really superb. The salmon was cooked perfectly and very high quality. The sides I chose were broccolini and butternut squash. Both were very flavorful and I loved both of them. Had the molten chocolate dessert which was heavenly if you like dark, rich chocolate. The chicken parmigiana was one of the best my spouse ever had. This was our first time and we will definitely be back. The leather booths are very comfortable and atmosphere is very warm and intimate.

Great Choice for our anniversary
My wife and I were in LA over our 29th anniversary and we were looking for a traditional Italian meal with a romantic touch. We could not have been more pleased. Compared to the other restaurants we dined at in the area, this place was under priced. Will go back.

Great food. Great service.
Great food. Great service. A little pricy but well worth it.
Perfect for a romantic night out. The gelato was outstanding!

Burgers & A Comfy Booth @ Lunch
Seriously, I never want to leave this place after having lunch there. You just sink into the booth & leave all of your daytime work troubles behind.....

great service, good food.
great service, good food. It is the kind of restaurant that one longs to find but doesn't exist much anymore

Salmon excellent but portion could be bigger. Broccoli I and squash both delicious.
