Dolce Vita has a cozy feel to it. The wait staff is attentive, but not intrusive. The food is delicious. Try it!
We came here on a Friday evening ...made reservations through OpenTable for 5pm and listed Birthday as the occasion celebrated. The restaurant opened at 4pm and we were the first customers to have dinner. The service was remarkable and the food was super delicious!!! When I ordered desert the water asked me if it’s special since he saw my OpenTable reservation..I said yes and they put the candle on our desert....when our check arrived, the waiter informed us the desert was on the house. That’s what I call amazing service!!! I
Excellent food, nice neighborhood place with friendly owner.
My guest enjoyed the evening immensely and would visit again. Food and service was excellent.
My party of five for Easter dinner enjoyed this special restaurant. The service was amazing. We felt welcomed and attended to. Each of our meals was delicious (we ordered pasta, fish, chicken and steak). We will definitely be back!
It was no surprise of the pleasant experience we have encountered. Thank you!
Have been to this restaurant about six times and each time has been a very pleasant dining experience. The food has been delicious each time, the service is top notch, the atmosphere is very pleasant and relaxing and the owner is very personable and friendly.
The food is delicious but when they have a party it takes way longer to get your food
Everything was delicious. Service was great. Seafood pasta was excellent. Swordfish was also good. Perfect cosmo. Great neighborhood restaurant with delicious food. I would recommend this restaurant
Had a wonderful meal with my lady friend and her two teenage daughters. Great food! Great atmosphere! Even the music they were playing was just wonderful!
Very small portions at high prices. Food was ok, I would not go back
My family and I truly enjoyed our time there. The staff was very accommodating and the food was delicious.
Great local gem. Food ,service, and decor are all great. I love the relaxed atmosphere especially for friends and family. The owners are great people. They care about all the customers. I'll be back again with more of my friends.
We were skeptical without a recommendation from anyone to go but we gave it a shot and we were very happy! The food was excellent. The arugula salad and fresh burrata was great as was the grilled pork chop which the waiter recommended a different way than on the menu. Very moist and delicious. The waiters were friendly and fun.
Our neighborhood dining spot. Great food service and the owners are very friendly too!
I had the pasta special with sirloin meatballs in a pink sauce. Delicious. My husband had a chicken special. Also very good. Great place also to meet up with friends for a drink.
The food was very very good. Service was outstanding. Everyone was so nice. The portions were large. Will be going back soon.
Great local spot. Go there for girl’s night out.
Great for family or date night. Back room for parties. They have dinner pre-fix menus Monday-Friday. Great deal choose off the menu.
Nice car to sit and have a drink or bar snacks. The owners are super friendly. Live going there.
The food is always delicious but the portions are a bit smaller than expected. Prices are medium to a bit on the high side given the portions. Everything else is fantastic and we will continue to frequent this establishment
A wonderful dining experience overall… The owners are lovely people who went out of their way to make us feel welcome and converse with us… Food was outstanding and the waiter service was prompt and attentive. We will be going back again.
I love the relaxed feel of the restaurant. A great neighborhood place for dining with friends and family. Has a nice bar. The owner is great and the staff is just as great too. We live meeting friends there. We try to go as often as possible. Great midweek pre fixed menu.
We live in NJ and our cousins in Long Island. We found Dolce Vita as a recommendation from a friend who called it one of her favorite Brooklyn Restaurants. On her suggestion we made reservations. It was wonderful. We were immediately greeted when we walked in. We were the first of our party of six to arrive and those to wait at the bar. The new bartender was getting careful supervision from a true professional and my special Cosmo was made wonderfully. Our four other cousins arrived and they had a drink at the bar and then at our table. Appetizers were very good. We shared a lot of them and they were divided by the wait staff to make things easier for us. We had a mozzarella and tomato tower, some pasta with white clam sauce and a meatball appetizer. For mains we enjoyed Salmon, veal francese, veal marsala, a salad with shrimp and a steak. Dessert was berries with whipped cream, a molten chocolate cake with ice cream, a pistachio tarfuffo and an Italian cheesecake. All were wonderful.
I highly recommend Dolce Vita to anyone who wants to enjoy excellent service and wonderful food!
The food was too saucy and it was sort of disappointing
Went for a birthday. Had the Tomahawk steak enough for 3 it was delicious!!
Franco, the owner makes you feel like family. And the food is incredible!!!
My boyfriend took me there for my birthday. It was 'lobster night'. I have been telling everyone it was the best meal i have ever had. The baked clams were delicious. The lobster was beyond delicious. I ordered my favorite dessert, creme brulee. it was wonderful. It was the perfect meal for my special night. There was one thing that i will complain about. There was a loudmouth at the bar going on and on about the virtues of Trump. Even if i agreed that Trump had virtues, which i don't, his loud mouth almost ruined the experience. However, thankfully he quieted down by the time our food came. The food has always been wonderful there. You won't be disappointed if you try it!
Had a delicious dinner at Dolce Vita. Service was great, our waiter was very attentive. I really enjoyed my seafood linguine. Calamari and rice balls were also good. Nice neighborhood restaurant. I will recommend it.
The food and service are great.... Manhattan level of service in a Brooklyn restaurant and Great Italian food. Everyone at the table was happy with the food and service. I traveled to Brooklyn from Rockaway Queens after reading an Ad in the Rockaway Times. It was a short 10 minute drive. I had the seafood linguine, it was excellent.
Extremely attentive service by wait staff and owner
Splendid, just splendid. Splendid, just splendid. Splendid, just splendid. Splendid, just splendid.
we've been very happy the last couple of dinners we've had a Dolce Vita. nice cocktails. meatball appetizer with fresh ricotta is delicious. dinners also very good (signature dishes on menu as well as specials). but, we've yet to have a good dessert. will keep trying!
The chef must have had the night off
The food was absolutely delicious. The service and the ambiance was excellent.
Great Italian food. Good ambiance. Fairly easy to get a table.
Stuffed mushrooms were delish and i would recommend roasted fennel and orange salad
