La Dolce Vita opened its' doors in Beverly Hills in 1966. The biggest celebrities in the world lived only moments away, and La Dolce Vita literally became their second home for decades to come. Regulars included the Sinatras, the Reagans, the Pecks, the Douglases, and the Bloomingdales. It hosted every sitting US President since the Kennedy administration, and was known as a haven for titans of industry and finance. Deals were made with a handshake, and everyone was certain to arrive on Thursdays for Osso Bucco. Now, La Dolce Vita moves to the future, following a seven month 'facelift,' during which the restaurant was restored to its' original pristine condition, reprieving the original menu, recipes, and decor. La Dolce Vita arrives once again as a popular dining and entertainment destination, now home to young Hollywood and those seeking the traditional cuisine of Italy.

Old style No. Italian testaurant with white table cloths and red vinyl booths, The food was good, but more expensive than I woul have thought,and the menu selections are limited compared to similar restaurants in their price point.

Everything was great except the service was slow. We felt like the waiter forgot about us in several occasions. We were planning on ordering coffee and desert but by that time, we just want to get out of there.

Great to return after years. My uncle (an old time Hollywood director) lived on Spalding and we'd meet there; but that was a decade or more ago.
Matre'd was exceptionally cordial and the food was quit good. (On par with La Scala or the Grill) Not too much selection but that usually means better quality... Pricey but ok size portions.
Calamari Friti was excellent as was the Lasagna.

Will be returning... (Park in the BH Public lot entrance on Roxbury and Santa Moncia and walk the 1/2 block.

The service was good, but the spaghetti and meatballs (a house specialty/homemade) were not. I had to use a knife to cut through the tough meatballs and I didn’t want to even eat the other two. I don’t mind spending money on good food, but $29 for a small bowl w/ bad meatballs was robbery.

Such an anomaly on Saturday night with the wait time. We waited 40 minutes before our dinner order was taken, then it took 1:20 hours before our dinner came out. Never have had this experience before, but the food, the server staff and especially the drinks were amazing, as always.

Old school charm in this small Italian bistro. The small size and dark ambiance transports you to a different place where good chatter is being bantered about over wine and food. Had salmon special over risotto which was exquisite. Tiramasu for dessert is a must.
