My friend and I visited several of the restaurants on Historic Federal Hill, we purchased groupons and visited quite a few Caffe Dolce Vita was one of them. We usually order one of the evening specials and have not been disappointed with this restaurant.

Amazing, authentic Italian food. Always on Groupon too! Not the most inexpensive place in the world, but you pay for quality. Great place for a date!

Hi, Sorry for my delay in responding . I know they have a great room a few stars up in the rear of the restaurant that may hold your party. My experience was very good and I am sure they would be very accommodating. Be sure... More
