“Fantastic wedding rehearsal dinner”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Although this is a smaller restaurant, Vincenzo was more than willing to accommodate our party of 21 for our daughter's rehearsal dinner. The guests enjoyed eggplant Parmesan, homemade lasagna, and fettuccine Alfredo with chicken. The food was excellent and the portions were generous. Our two families that were soon to be joined by marriage had a wonderful time getting to know each other and celebrating a very happy time.

“Excellent Food!”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

La Dolce Vita is a small family owned restaurant in Long Neck, Delaware. It is has a warm, cozy atmosphere and they treat you like family. It is very comfortable and the food is delicious. My husband and I shared the Mussels Diablo appetizer ($9.95). We then both chose the specials of the evening Seafood Diablo ($23.95) and the Florentine Ravioli ($17.95). Both were excellent. Wine was reasonably priced at $6.00 a glass. Their regular menu is posted online.

“Neighborhood Italian in Long Neck”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

In New York this would certainly be classified as a "neighborhood" restaurant, usually - but not always - a good thing.

In Dolce Vita's case it is definitely a good thing. The food is consistently very good, whether veal, chicken, seafood or pasta. The ambiance is definitely unpretentious, but it's nice and quiet; one can have a civilized conversation. Service is friendly and attentive; a few more "darlings" and "honeys" than I would like, but that's Slower, lower Delaware. Vincenza, the owner, is everywhere and loves to talk; do talk with him, it's fun.

Last but not least, the Early Bird Special is one of the world's greatest bargains. While selections are limited and portions a little smaller than the regular menu (though still more than adequate for a senior appetite), for $10 you can get a full meal.

Do come. And enjoy! We've been many times and have never failed to enjoy. We're even going with friends for New Year's Eve!

“Great Neighborhood Italian Restaurant”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

A local place we have been going to for years. Food is always excellent, service is great and always friendly. Fresh and homemade pasta dishes, veal and seafood. Good value for your money. My wife's favorite is the linguini with clams. I love the seafood diablo or any of the veal dishes. We have never been disappointed in our meals.

Try the black linguini when it's available. It's made with squid ink!

The only drawback is that it has now become so popular we have to make reservations :)
