Still one of the best quality/value ratios in LaJolla.
After 2 visits to this restaurant, it has quickly become one of my favorites in San Diego. Every visit brings me back to Italy, from the amazing food and the staff who truly have a love for serving the guests and are knowledgeable about the authentic Italian menu. Even the fresh made bread that they start you off with and homemade spread is amazing. Always a lovely experience. If you drive past the restaurant on the left, there is a parking garage after the first left turn. This self parking garage charges $7 vs. the $15 across the street or higher for valet at George's.
This was a little treasure we found! We felt like we’d stepped into a little side alley restaurant in Venice. Quaint and nice. The waiter knew it was my son’s bday, and he brought a delicious tiramisu as a surprise! Apps, salad, and entrees were fantastic. We’d definitely head back on our next visit the area!
Beautiful courtyard setting. Excellent food and service.
Truly a hidden gem in the Village of La Jolla. Tucked away off of bustling Prospect, you are transported to Italy as you walk through the door... from the initial greeting by the host, to the atmosphere and attentive service and, of course, the amazing food! Buon appetito!
La Dolce Vita is a hidden La Jolla gem right across the street from Georges at the Cove. It's quiet ambiance, perfect dining music, and several "original" Italian waiters, create a setting as close to Italy that you will find in La Jolla.
We were family table of 10 in for a wedding. The food, service was delicious. It was quite loud in the quaint house!
We are local but had never eaten here. We were shocked by the incredible food, great service, and surprising value for La Jolla. I suggest you tell friends and family to go here rather than the really pricey places across the street.
Great food, atmosphere and service.
This place is great. Waiters are Italian and provided amazing service. Delicious food and wine. I will definitely be back!
It was great and the bread they serve before the main entree was DELISH!
Me and my girl went for Valentine’s Day and the food was amazing. Great atmosphere and the waiter spoke Italian which was cool.
This is the second time I’ve dined here. This time we ate inside because it was chilly. The ambience is nice, the food is very good, and the service is the right blend of interest while not making one feel rushed. Last time I enjoyed their linguine with clams. This visit I enjoyed tasty veal with mushrooms. My companion really liked the short ribs. The bruschetta is good too. Highly recommend.
Enjoyed our meal and service. Is always fun to meet the owners who are working hard to live out their passion with their own business.
Thank you for tbe amazing food and service. I had the chance to meet the chef what amazing experience. Will definitely be returning
we are locals and have many options in the village. La Dolce staff is friendly, charming and helpful. Like many restaurants some dishes are outstanding, others just ok. A couple of visits and you will certainly find your favorites. portions are very large and reasonably priced.
It has developed a following and seems to be very busy even mid week. A great find.
My husband and I had an excellent dinner and fantastic service with Rafael as our server. He was very informative and attentive and gave excellent meal suggestions. We will be coming back here again very soon to enjoy the delicious homemade pasta meals😊

The family and I went to La Dolce Vita while in town. We really enjoyed our experience from the service to the food. My wife had the lobster ravioli that she enjoyed and I had the seafood risotto that was delicious. I have to recommend both specials.

Just a really lovely atmosphere. Great live music and great food.
A perfect night. An intimate and fun atmosphere. Service is special: friendly, knowledgeable, and gracious. Exceptional food and wine.
No complaints except the ambiance left something to be desired.
We had the most amazing evening filled with amazing food and wine , the music on Friday was just amazing. We enjoy the singer Luigi who’s been singing since . The food is spectacular
There was a singer who could not sing. Really poor and made the dining experience intolerable. The food was a bit overcooked but ok. The noise and music was too much.
