“Great food with wonderful service to add!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

Had a wonderful evening last week for a birthday celebration. The service from the minute we stepped in the restaurant was very impressive. We ordered the Blue Lobster Bisque to share (for two) and the portion was quite generous, Tuscan Cacciucco (seafood platter) and Angus Beef Tenderloin for main course and finished with our course with the classic Italian Tiramisu. The soup was light and aromatic with a big scallop at the bottom, one of the best lobster bique I ever had. The seafood platter was very delicious with Maine lobster, king crab, Hokkaido scallop, tiger prawn and cod in seafood and shell fish soup, The Angus beef tenderloin was so succulent and juicy that it melts in the mouth, absolutely one of the best ever. The dessert was a good finale to our 3- courses ala carte dinner. Will definitely be back to try their other tempting dishes in the menu.

“Superb in every way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

We celebrated our Silver Wedding Anniversary here in April. Upon arrival we were shown to our table outside over looking the pool, and the Singapore skyline, it was perfect. All of the staff made us feel very welcome, they were very attentive and could not have done anymore. We had mentioned on booking, that it was our Silver Wedding Anniversary, and our table was decorated beautifully. Our meal was faultless from beginning to end, and we would not hesitate in recommending this restaurant. Although it is not cheap, we found that for a perfect and memorable evening we were certainly not disappointed.

“Must Order”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

With new design around swimming pool area, making Dolce Vita become a good ambiance to dine for two or group dining, however, some areas need to improve such as Wine List per glasses, quantity on pouring wine ordering by glass, quantity of food with providing complimentary car park coupon as benefit. Lobster Bisque was our main reason we were there.

“Favourite restaurant in Singapore!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

My partner and I make sure we visit Dolce Vita every time we go to Singapore. It is absolutely stunning. Not only is the service flawless but the food and wine selection is incredible and the atmosphere is perfect for a romantic evening.

Be sure to finish your drinks outside on the lounge - such a beautiful end to a perfect experience. We will definitely be back!
