    First of all, don't come here unless you can comfortably handle a lot of stairs. Second, the signage is unclear so go down for the bar but up for the restaurant. The service that we had was terrible and from someone who really should not be a waiter. He thought red bell peppers were squash; I'm not kidding or making this up. The ambiance is adorable, I will give them that, but there was a bizarre singer there as well. As for the food, the bread was decent but that was about it. The pasta was cooked correctly as well as the chicken, but nothing was seasoned and overall the dish had next to no flavor. I've honestly never been served Italian food without being offered fresh parmesan. And the chicken piccata had almost no lemon flavor with no fresh lemon provided on the side either. And no capers!!??!! This is supposed to be an Italian restaurant but it's really just an American restaurant pretending to be an Italian restaurant. If you can handle a lot of stairs and don't mind extremely as well as ineffective service, but enjoy bland food and adorable ambience than this place is for you.

    Wanted to go somewhere quiet for our anniversary so we picked La Dolce Vita. We have been here a couple of times before. The setting, in a Victorian house, is so quaint. We have always had a great meal here. The server was very attentive, but not pushy. The food was delicious.

    I wish I could leave a raving review for La Dolce Vita but unfortunately I can't. Both my husband and my Mother ordered the chicken marsala. My husband and mother had to salt their dish because it was so bland. My husband is a cook who frequently makes chicken marsala and he said the chicken's texture was like it was cooked the day before. He also said there was absolutely no marsala wine flavor in the dish. The bread was dry. I loved the ambiance and wish the food could have matched that but it was just not good.

    Bar and restaurant are separate and inconsistent with restaurant. Artichoke appetizer was grilled and frozen in the middle. Portobello mushroom entree was just awful.

    Excellent Italian cuisine! We truly enjoyed it. Be careful not to fill up on tapas. Portions were more than expected.
