Service and Food were amazing
Great food. Wait staff was stretched thin.
Always enjoy dining here and the great service
Great experience. Can't wait to go back. Great atmosphere.
Our party wined and dined in the Dolce Vita Wine Bar side of the establishment as opposed to the restaurant side. Our waitress had a dazzling smile and gave us helpful suggestions on food and drink. We enjoyed the cicchettis (Italian small plates) and half-priced wines on Wine Wednesday.
Nice place for dinner date, great friendly service, food is fabulous, nice wine selection
Food is consistently very good.
Service was outstanding. I would definitely go back
The service was nice. The area was very open which makes a date night less of an experience for a couple. But the wine bar atmosphere was nice and the team seemed energetic to assist and wait on the patrons.
Wish they had table clothes and was quieter but otherwise excellent.
The service was not great. They were slow to refill drink orders Very slow.
Truly EXCELLENT meal! Food was fabulous, as was our server. One in the party was new to the restaurant, so server gave history of restaurant. Had the chicken Marsala- excellent! For dessert, we all had ice cream with a shot of espresso over it - wonderful! Had forgotten how much I love this place - will be back soon!!
Great food, great server
A little loud, but the food was fantastic. I’ll be back for lunch.
Excellent food, but service was extremely sparse and many larger parties who arrived after my wife and I were receiving appetizers long before we had even ordered. It was very noisy, so if you’re looking for a serene environment it may not be the place. If you’re looking for a bustling Italian restaurant, then this is the place. We will definitely come back, and hopefully the service is better next time.
always a good meal...new expanded space makes it even more enjoyable
Great food everything was delicious. Very friendly staff. Nice renovations but could a little brighter in the dining area. Love the view of the kitchen! We will be back again and again!
Nice ambience as long as you request to not sit in the kitchen area. Waitstaff seemed young and inexperienced but enthusiastic. Food was fine if a bit overpriced.
What a gem! Great selections on food and wine. Service was fantastic, loved getting recommendations from the staff. Clean & friendly.
Josh was a great server and was passionate about dolce vita. He was very well versed on the menu and wine options. Lunch menu had options ranging from meatball sub to pizza to chicken Marsala.
We sat outside due to a member of our party being concerned about indoor dining. The restaurant inside is very inviting & romantic.
Our server was a little slow to check on us and didn't clear plates promptly on our small table. He was extremely pleasant and helpful when asked about the menu, however! (Oscar)
The food was delicious, but expect about a $10 bump on all entre's from normal higher end restaurants.
Loved the Calamari, the wine selection and the homemade pasta!
Good food and fun restaurant, but steak is inconsistently prepared.
Good food, average service, extremely loud-hard to have a conversation. Recommend you dine on the bar side of the restaurant. Better look and a little quieter.
My favorite place!
Not our usual experience- lots of mix ups with orders for a number of dining guests around us and including us. One cocktail we ordered was predominately ice. Waited quite awhile for napkins and silverware. Things were just off.
The Dolce Vita has been our go to lunch place for over 20 years - and during this time, we have never been disappointed. Food and service are always great.
Our waiter brought the wrong entree to one member of our party - he missed what she said. Disappointing
We have been looking for an everyday Italian restaurant since we moved to NOVA last winter. We finally found it! Steven was the most accommodating server, the food was great, the wine was great. We will definitely be back again and again. Thanks for an enjoyable lunch! The new wine bar looks like we want to try that too.
Excellent service & delicious food for our family gathering! Thank you Dolce Vita.
Food is fabulous, drinks and wines great. Service and staff are great. sit outside or inside and has nice bar.
The restaurant was great— our server Brian was very friendly and knowledgeable. Food excellent!
Great service and good food. Very please with the restaurant and the staff members. The bartender is great. She remembers us as repeating customers. Awesome service and good food. Will definitely come back again.
Food was delicious and we loved the Sirpasso wine that was recommended.
Thanks food and service good
A hidden gem in Fairfax. We sat on the wine bar side and it made the evening. Our waiter was excellent and offered all the right advice. The food was delicious and the wine selection true Italian wines. A great place for lunch or dinner for any occasion
Wonderful service! The food was outstanding! Half price wine bottles on Wednesday was an added bonus we didnt know about! I will definitely be coming back!
Very great atmosphere. Food was wonderful and drinks were amazing.
The food is consistently amazing. The dishes are extraordinary, the ambiance is very quaint and it never disappoints! Fantastic, high quality food every single time!
Next time we will have to sit in the bar area which was more lively...but we still enjoyed our experience. Our waiter was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and engaging. I wish I could remember his name!
The food was amazing and our waitress was super sweet and attractive. We love supporting this small business!
