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 lifes greatest commodity. Relax and enjoy the sweet life (and please dont keep it a secret.)

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 147reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by We waited quite a long time before anyone even came to our table to get our drink order. We were in the restaurant for over an hour and a half and in that time our server came to our table only twice. Very Poor service and the food was just okay. Apr 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Hostess was rude, sullen, completely unprofessional. We observed her tossing plates onto a table that she was setting; we did not see her smile once while we were there. Apr 13, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by great wait staff, explained all specials, offered them even though we were early for dinner hour.Be sure to ask prices for specials-some were more than regular menu items. Mar 10, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Jeb was the primary reason for the positive experience. Fast, efficient.... and friendly. We just popped in for a short time and a small order. He didn't judge it - - jumped to attention... and was very professional. Then he topped things off with a comp plate of fruit, as a surprise. It was wonderful! Feb 25, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Food was great and so was the waiter! ?? Feb 13, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by We were some of the only people in the restaurant, but the server was very slow and fairly rude. We heard him complaining about how the other server had more tables than him. He rarely made eye contact with us and seemed irritated that we were there. Dec 6, 2013
