Wonderful experience great food well run restaurant will be back again
Outstanding service, food and ambience!!
I have eaten at this restaurant several times and my usual rating would be a 5 star. This time we visited during Restaurant Week unknown to us. The place was packed and I believe the quality of the food suffered because of that. I ordered Clams Casino and received Clams Oreganata. I ordered my steak medium rare and received it medium almost well done. I was disappointed but the flavor was still good. The waiter did offer me a free dessert to compensate for the errors. I'll be back because I know this was out of character for this restaurant.
Great food! We had the appetizers family style and they were outstanding. The service was exceptional. The location is perfect. Nothing beats overlooking the ocean as you dine.
Food was the Delicious. Generous portions. Great service. Wonderful time.
Good food, nice view of ocean. Very enjoyable evening
Went with family on a cold Saturday night. Was seated in the front room and got blasted with cold air every time someone came in or left the restaurant. Be forewarned if it's cold and that's where you're seated. Our waiter was excellent and attentive even on a busy Saturday night. As for the food, it ranged from the very good (the Pasta Sapore di Mare with fish and the fish salad) to the pretty good (caprese salad) to the pretty bad (the clams orreganata tasted like sea water according to my wife ). The Zuppa di pesce had a good flavor but some of the large pieces of fish were bland and rubbery. It was disappointing that some of the dishes were really off the mark since some of the dishes were very good. I guess you need to know which items to order but not sure we'll go back to find out.
Solid Italian restaurant with good options
Hostess desk too confined and not much room for guests to stand waiting for tables without feeling like we were in the way. Patio dining room a little loud for my liking and don't care much when servers loudly dump dishes in a bin when clearing tables. But food was good so will try again on a less busy night.
Great food, great specials on both food & wine, great service! Love sitting out on the enclosed, heated patio
Consistently good food in a relaxed atmosphere. We will be back again!
Excellent food and wine. Anastasia provided FABULOUS service!
We decided on La Dolce Vita for out Easter dinner this year. We have been there before and love their food. Our Easter dinner was delicious, but it was so crowded with extra tables, that people could not get past. It was a little chaotic. However, our server was a very nice and efficient man, and the food was fabulous, so overall we enjoyed our dinner. Maybe next year they should consider having a few less tables.
Came for Easter dinner with my family and left very happy with an exceptional meal.
Easter Lunch by the waterfront. Special menu, exceptional waiter, beautiful view. All items separate, so it can be pricy, but considering the day it was reasonable. We had 2 guests not arrive, but the restaurant easily accommodated us. GREAT VIEW, wonderful food. The stuffed artichoke and the bread were notable.
Always a delicious experience. Service is excellent. This time it was not as crowded because of holidays so we were able to enjoy cocktails first at the pretty bar.
The food and service were great!!!
We had a truly fantastic evening. Food, service & atmosphere were outstanding! Best pork chop I've ever had!!! Loved our waiter Daniel. Can't wait to go back again!
Outstanding food and service, as usual. Restaurant is popular all year round
Great food and the service was very good despite a packed house. We visit every time we're in the area and have never been disappointed.
As usually the food was outstanding ! The service was good and the waiter was very pleasant and helpful !
This restaurant is one of my favs. But this time the food was just ok. Hot food on cold plates, never a good idea. Perhaps just an off night?
Our go to favorite!
Have to tell you the pistachio sea bass is one of the best In Monmouth County!
The Crab cakes are huge and full of flavor with a sweet sauce !
Excellent service always!
Met friends for dinner. Reservation was on time. Great atmosphere courteous server and delicious food .
Never disappoints !
Great service and good food. Only problem was large table with family were screaming and made a romantic date difficult as we couldn't hear over this large obnoxious family.
Love this place, the owners, the servers, the View and food.
Great time I would go again, nice and romantic if you want nice food
Nice place for lunch w the view of the ocean. We were there twice recently and enjoyable. It would have been nice if they did something special for Valentine's Day, such as a special menu. Nothing to note the day.
Lovely evening great food and service
Dinner was good. Person at the greeting desk was very rude and totally ignored us.
Excellent food and service!
As always, La Dolce Vita was a pleaser. The staff, service and food are exceptional! Highly recommend the Veal Scaloppine Saltimbocca!
Great location, delicious food, and outstanding service.
We had a lovely 39th anniversary tonight! Italy was very close. Wonderful food, surroundings and amazing waiter! We love celebrating important moments with Dolce Vita. We are blessed indeed.
This is a regular spot for us and we will go back, but our Saturday night meal was uneven. Some flaws in the food prep and the service a bit rushed even though it was not crowded. The place looks great. Hope it goes back up to its previous high standards.
Our server Anastasia was excellent and very attentive to our needs. Outstanding service.
I have always wanted to try. I made a 7:30 reservation and sat to eat at 8:20. Way to many people!!!! To crowded and way over booked!!!! I didn’t like my meal at all!!!! My husband got 3 little little pieces of veal, imbarrasing!!!!!we will never go back!!!!
