Food & atmosphere was great, but the tables were so close together on the lower level that it made the meal uncomfortable. Would have been much better if seated upstairs or at bar
Wine menu should be updated with better red wine selections. Maybe use fresh tomatoes on pizza rather than canned. Everything else was great
Hands down best pizza place in Houston! Perfect for group dinners or a date night! The service is quick
We celebrated my daughter’s 20th birthday! Fun night!
Been here at least 50 times and always have had a good experience until this last one. We were placed at an upstairs table in the middle of a walk path and underneath an air vent that made for an uncomfortable dining experience. Hostesses and waiters could not have cared less even after mentioning this to them and kept bringing new guests into the dining room between my chair and the column. I literally had my fork knocked out of my hand by a guest bumping into my chair.
The bar would be only for drinks and not to have dinner.
Horrible. They call it “enoteca” (very good wine), but I was compelled to reject the selected wine twice because it tasted like vinegar. The third one was nothing like special. Pizza was like chewing gum with no taste
This restaurant was delicious. The pizza margherita was amazing, and the pasta was perfectly cooked, al denote.
Great all around restaurant!
Service and food were very good. We were moved to a more spacious and comfortable table at our request.. There was a large party next to us that was extremely loud. Not the restaurants fault but the configuration makes this a possibility. One of my favorites all around.
Great food and atmosphere. We sit at the bar. Service is excellent.
Recommended for people who is looking for real Italian food. Real Italian taste and quality. Large variety of wine. Good price!!
Very good service, tables organization needed more Atención. Food was Good.
We felt very rushed and the waiter was very pushy... brought a bottle of wine out before we finished ours, left our table and didn’t come back for 10+ minutes because one person still was deciding what they wanted... we left feeling very weird about dinner and dolce vita is (well, was) one of our favorites! Also, it was someone’s birthday and he gave us the check before we could even ask him for dessert - so we didn’t even get to celebrate the birthday. Too many good restaurants in Houston to return, quite upsetting!
Great food and wonderful service. We always enjoy our evening there.
Went for dinner with my mom and the meal was delicious!
Great pizza and service. Great martinis. Love the atmosphere. Good for large groups or a safe night. Prime locations
Food was great from the starters to the pizza could not complain about the food. But service could be better slow at times and a bit cramped with the seating but that is the nature of this restaurant.
Food was delicious/excellent!
The food was outstanding! The table ordered several appetizers I didn't think I would like I actually loved! Excellent wine too. Overall a great experience.
It's always a joy to go to Dolce Vita. It's a great place to sit, have some wine and talk while enjoying some really nice food. Probably the best pizza in town, but we don't always get pizza. There is a lovely variety of appetizers, specials and other entrees that are real treats and make it hard to make a choice. Whatever choice it comes down to always seems to be the right one. I had the bucatini all'amatriciana which was absolutely delicious and the perfect dish for the evening. They also have a nice wine list. We had a Montepulciano d'Abruzzo which is our go to wine there. There was a $3 charge for valet parking which is new.
Birthday- Noted when making reservation, but no dessert offered. Lots of large tables around us, loud, difficult to get servers attention. Food always good.
Great Birthday Dinner for my Hubby!
Got a table on the patio on a nice evening. Good score. Plus a glass of sparkling wine to start.
I loved the butter lettuce, gorgonzola and hazelnuts salad. My husband ordered a meat dish but ended up stealing my bucatini amatriciana! It was over the top good. We ordered two desserts: Chocolate ‘Bacio’ Chocolate Cake with Molten Center (OK but a little dry) and the Dark Chocolate "Tartufo" (excellent). A really nice bottle of wine, and great service from our server, Angel. Loved it!
Excellent food, some of the best italian food in Houston. Great service.
Absolutely loved this place! The owner is amazing and he even sang at the table. The food made me feel like I was back in Italy eating in Venice.
We had a wonderful birthday celebration. Everything was perfect. The only thing that gave us any discomfort was the heavy traffic on Westheimer, as we were sitting on the patio. It was a bit distracting at times.
ALWAYS A WONDERFUL MEAL!!!!
One of our favorite restaurants in Houston!!!
My favorite dish is the spaghetti with clams. Cooked just right, service is impec able, the wine list has a great bottle in every price range and the service and food is always consistent.
A purchase gem!!!
Great pizza! Was very quick, had our food in about 20 minutes, in and out in under an hour.
Excellent for a weekend dinner to enjoy with friends and family.
We had multiple appetizers and their incredible pizza. The closest pizza to what we found in Italy. It was fabulous! Can't wait to go again!
We visit Houston annually and having found Dolce Vita years ago we have always made a point to visit. This time unfortunately it seems there has been a major change in the menu and quality. While the pizzas were reasonably okay with a good selection, the appetizers which was a major draw previously were disappointing. The shaved Brussels sprouts and cauliflower lacked flavor and would be better roasted. I’m not sure if we’ll return next year unless something changes.
Best pizza and pastas!
I went for the first time as a friend recommended the place. The food was really good, specially the burrata and arugula antipasto. Loved it! It tried the special of the day pasta and it was really good too.
I didn’t have the chance to get the pizza, but if they taste how they look, I think it will be a hit.
The place was packed, so that says a lot. Worth going!
Dolce Vita is a great place for comfort Italian food or to just grab a pizza. I'm so glad they have started taking reservations.
Always good... hence I/we eat there twice a week on average.
Great pizza, prosciutto and butternut squash dish was super. Everything was lovely.
Love this place! Always excellent food and excellent service. Perfect date night.
The pizza dough is on point!
IK would never sit upstairs again, it is too noisy. The pizza was delicious.
Excellent Osso Bucco
Excellent service by Valeria
