Been here a few times & each time we have enjoyed the food which is the main reason for returning. However.... It's always a weird experience & are left feeling uncomfortable and unwelcome. The front of house person could do with practising how to smile, it's really not difficult & a perhaps treating your customers with more respect wouldn't help.... More

It's not often you get compelled to leave a review but my family attended Dolce Vita and had a good time. Upon going to pay your bill you find out that the pizza or pasta for £5 isn't the case as stated on the menu but are directed to a poorly displayed sign near the till that doesn't honour thru...

Very poor. Garlic prawn starter was 6 hard pre cooked small prawns and a bit of green salad. I had to send my main back because was one small cannelloni with flavourless boiled mince. Really disappointing.

My husband and I went here for the first time last night with some family members. The venue is nice, not too large that there is no atmosphere, not so small that it's cramped. Ordered mushrooms in a cream and white sauce for started which were delicious. Carbonara for main which was delicious, the portion was very generous, It would... More

I've eaten here many times as I only live a mile away, but this is my first review. As a journalist, I've tried to maintain independence but it's hard not to be enthusiastic about a restaurant that has stood the test of time over many years, and in the same ownership. Top marks to chefs Andy and Patrick. Garlic mushrooms... More

Not been for a very long time but my daughter wanted to celebrate her 21st birthday here. Delivered the cake early for a surprise. Cake had a table all to itself! The staff were very helpful and made the evening more special. The restaurant had not changed apart from the absent piano! Food very enjoyable. Good wine list. Plenty of... More

Fantastic authentic Italian in a wonderful building, great friendly staff, fantastic chef with a good sense of humour. I can highly recommend the Diavola pasta, just the right amount of chilli bite and the flavour of the pancetta made the cabonara that much more special. We will be back again soon.

Best food. Best service. Best price. Best quality. All just lovely again. Garlic bread best ever, calzone perfect, not too heavy. Ice cream to die for. All served piping hot and fresh. Except the ice cream, that was cold! Tuesday nights £5 main course - brilliant.
