La Dolce Vita opened its' doors in Beverly Hills in 1966. The biggest celebrities in the world lived only moments away, and La Dolce Vita literally became their second home for decades to come. Regulars included the Sinatras, the Reagans, the Pecks, the Douglases, and the Bloomingdales. It hosted every sitting US President since the Kennedy administration, and was known as a haven for titans of industry and finance. Deals were made with a handshake, and everyone was certain to arrive on Thursdays for Osso Bucco. Now, La Dolce Vita moves to the future, following a seven month 'facelift,' during which the restaurant was restored to its' original pristine condition, reprieving the original menu, recipes, and decor. La Dolce Vita arrives once again as a popular dining and entertainment destination, now home to young Hollywood and those seeking the traditional cuisine of Italy.

I love this place. Our food was outstanding! I had a Caesar salad and chicken parmigiana, both were incredible! The parmigiana was perfectly prepared, might be the best parm in Los Angeles. A+

Pretty bad service. Even at the 4 person bar it was horrible...no bread serving, no place settings until after our food arrived, wasn't offered a refill when I finished my cocktail (from the bartender, no less!)

The service is excellent and the location is easy to get to. I enjoyed the food that I ate. The only comment about the food would be that the penne pesto didn't have pine nuts (just the way they make it), which is strange for a pesto sauce. I didn't love how dark the restaurant is, as most of the patrons have to use their cellphones as flashlights to even read the menu. Overall, a good restaurant... but just a tad bit overpriced. You're paying for the history of the restaurant and the location more than you're paying for the food.

Five women met the night before a golf tournament, three LA locals and two from the desert. The locals were so glad to have been invited as they had not been to the restaurant in several years and were thrilled with the reintroduction. Our reservation attendees increased over the days prior to the dinner and the staff was most friendly in making the changes. We requested a special salad and again the staff did an outstanding job in accommodating our request. Five different entrees, all superb in taste and presented beautifully. Tables were beautifully prepared upon arrival.

Old style No. Italian testaurant with white table cloths and red vinyl booths, The food was good, but more expensive than I woul have thought,and the menu selections are limited compared to similar restaurants in their price point.

Everything was great except the service was slow. We felt like the waiter forgot about us in several occasions. We were planning on ordering coffee and desert but by that time, we just want to get out of there.

Great to return after years. My uncle (an old time Hollywood director) lived on Spalding and we'd meet there; but that was a decade or more ago.
Matre'd was exceptionally cordial and the food was quit good. (On par with La Scala or the Grill) Not too much selection but that usually means better quality... Pricey but ok size portions.
Calamari Friti was excellent as was the Lasagna.

Will be returning... (Park in the BH Public lot entrance on Roxbury and Santa Moncia and walk the 1/2 block.
