Welcome to La Dolce Vita Bistro - “The Sweet Life,” a restaurant and bistro created to recapture the bell-époque charm of “The Italian Drug,” opened here by Dr. Anthony Caruso in 1914. In the tradition of the great European 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.

    Our reservation was at 5:30. We asked to sit close to another group and they stated we would not be at the same table but close. The party we were with go seated at 6:30 and we were seated almot 15 minutes later. In addition, they continued to seat other reservations of large parties that came after us before us. The service was slow. We saw our waiter for our food order and again when the food was served. We asked other servers / bussers for some more bread because it took more than 45 minutes for our food order to come out. Bread never came. The other party we asked to sit next to, had their dessert done when our food finally arrived. By the time the waiter came back for dessert, we ordered to go because we were unsure how long it would take to get it if served on site. Very disappointing experience for a 1st time at the restaurant, especially for a special occasion.

    Went to dinner as a belated birthday celebration before a performance at Severance. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. Could not have asked for a better family celebration
