Welcome to La Dolce Vita Bistro, The Sweet Life, a restaurant and bistro created to recapture the bell epoque charm of The Italian Drug, opened here by Dr. Anthony Caruso in 1914. In the tradition of the great Europian bistros, La Dolce Vita is devoted to providing a relaxed and friendly atmosphere for everything from eight course dinners to coffee and Calvino. We strive to prepare the perfect meal, or the perfect cappuccino, and let you enjoy it at your leisure. Our pasta is cooked fresh to order, our sauces and dressing are painstakingly prepared using only the finest ingredients, extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, the freshest vegetables, imported whole tomatoes, fresh basil and Italian parsley... and your table is reserved for the evening. So allow yourself to drift back to an age when time was life's greatest commodity. Relax and enjoy the sweet life and please don't keep it a secret.

Rated 2 out of 5 by The food and service are good, but the décor is unattractive. I think they are going for an eclectic look, but it just looks messy and a little dirty. Apr 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Marcus was a very good server. Had a lot of tables to wait on. Had Veal Pavarotti and veal chop - both excellent. Generous cocktails. No salt or pepper on table, had to wait a bit to have them delivered. Nice view of pedestrians on Mayfield walking by our window-side table. Definitely will return. Apr 19, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely housemade braided bread was given to the table and though we didn't order dessert a plate of fresh fruit was given to us at the end.
