Ditalini pasta and white kidney beans, pancetta prepared our special way
Penne alla Vodka
Penne in delicate pink vodka sauce, prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, and cream
Great as usual
It was fantastic. The florentine ravioli with the chicken rollentini was delicious. Best crème brulet ever.
Great food and service. The atmosphere was great too. I would highly recommend La Dolce Vita.
Amazing experience on New Years Eve. We started with salads that were delicious and fresh. For our entrees we had Filet Mignon that was made to perfection and Angry Lobster and Shrimp over homemade pasta that was delicious! Fabulous cocktails. The service was amazing on a busy night, we were checked on quite often , bringing fresh bread and oils. Beautifully decorated for the holidays Oceanside is a bonus!
Outstanding food and service. Very polite and accommodating. Crowded for NYE but they did a great job
Wonderful dinner for the last day of the year! A bit busier than expected but still was fantastic!
Cocktails were outstanding. And, we've had great meals in the past, but not this time.
Hostess staff excellent , greeted immediately as well as held door for my wheelchair bound 90 year old Mom . The server Drew was excellent. Food amazing. . Highly recommend
Lovely place. Delicious, high quality food. Not OMG tasty but really fine. Would go there frequently if we lived nearby.
Six different lunch menu items. All delicious. All enjoyed
We had a small girlfriends dinner before Christmas. It was decorated beautifully for the holiday & we were given a nice welcome from the hostess. We ordered sangria for the table and it was delicious. The fresh bread was so good.
2 of us had salads as appetizers and one had pasta e fagiole, all were very good.
My 2 friends ordered chicken dinners that they loved. I ordered the shrimp francaise. The shrimp was delicious, but the pasta tasted very starchy. It was kinda wierd.
I don't remember our waiters name, but he couldn't have been more attentive. I would definitely go back again.
Food was disappointing
The meal and service were very good, however it was way too loud. It was very difficult to have a conversation without raising our voices.
Food was delicious as alway. Love eating there
Great experience. Great service. Decorated so nicely for the holidays.
Favorite. As a gf celiac. So accommodating. Personalizing my diet allowances and still maintaining excellent quality…wait staff is personable. Celebrated three bday dinners there recently. Friends never there before..loved it
First time dining here with friends. The food was delicious. Excellent service. Nice Christmas decorations. Quiet enough to hold a conversation. Everything was just right.
Great meal great service we enjoyed our evening celebrating a birthday
Best meal we have had in a while. The meatball appetizer was one of the best meatballs I’ve ever had. Excellent!
It is winter at the Jersey shore, so the restaurant was fairly busy but on the quiet side. The food and service, as always, were great. It was a business/friendship meeting, and we were able to complete both easily without being rushed. La Dolce Vita is my go-to restaurant.
Great place great food wonderful service
John was an amazing. Very attentive.
The staff was very attentive. The food was very good and fresh.
Have dined here numerous times. A little disappointed this time. Calamari was too large as were the baked clams. My fish tasted good but was lukewarm.
Absolutely perfect! Service was impeccable; portion size was large and taste was delicious.
One of our favorite places! Great food, and service!
Everything was fabulous as usual. My only issue was that I wanted to purchase the $100, gift card and get the $50 bonus, however when I approached the table a sign was posted that $100 gift card came with a $20 bonus. So I passed.
I went to this place with a good friend whom really needed a evening out. I thought from everything I heard this would be a great spot. We had been sitting at a 4 top table by the window, which was very nice out server too was sweet. We had our order in our drinks and bread on the table. We decided to go out front, I spoke to the bus boy next to the water table and the older blonde waitress...pointing at our table and explaining we will be right back. Mind you our full drinks, bread set up and phone were all on the table, we spoke to two employees...we were right out front for no more than 2 minutes and they gave our table to 4 girls. I went back in as they sat them to ask what are you doing??? My server came out confused holding my burata appetizer. The hostess told me to wait at the bar, I don't drink... She refused to move the girls and never even apologized.
I have a small business, I would never treat a client the way I was treated by the hostess. I also, worked in restaurants most of my college years. I would have apologized to the girls sitting down, ushered them to the bar and bought them a round. Done, problem solved! At the very least, I would have apologized.
It was a horrible experience and sadly, I've only heard great things about the food...but, unable to experience because the hostess gave my table away and had no problem solving skills.
A local favorite. Nice variety on the menu. Serving staff is very attentive.
The food was excellent and our waiter was personable and attentive to our requests.
Went for Jersey Shore Restaurant Week!
Food, service and value were great!
I had the spicy rigatoni, it was very good!
We love the atmosphere it was very cozy and it was beautiful being on the beach. The food was amazing our server was great we will definitely be back there!
Great view from patio. Intimate. Good food.
This just may be my new favorite local Italian restaurant. Outstanding menu and the cocktails are on point. Chicken Parm was delicious.
Wonderful as always.
Great job by staff. Found me a lobster tail
Everything was great. Although we were seated very close by to an extremely loud group of eleven. Made it next to impossible to speak to my husband across the table.
I found the spinach that was served with the bronzino had too much garlic.
I had to remind the server that our drinks had not yet arrived.
The ingredients didn’t taste fresh. What a huge difference from summer visits there. My pasta tasted like chlorinated water. The antipasto we ordered tasted old and dull.
Greta birthday dinner celebration for my husband and me. The food was above par,as expected... Drinks were flowing... The night ended with a spectacular dessert highlighting his birthday, which he thoroughly enjoyed...
