If your looking for a true authentic Italian restaurant this is the place.
From the ambiance to the service/staff and most importantly the FOOD!!!!
No penne Alfredo here, Fresh, tasty and reasonably priced. Desserts are must try to after the delectable entrees. Tiramisu and panna cotta!!! Delizioso. Grazie Cristiano look forward to visiting soon con il Milanese.

I read good reviews about this restaurant and had to try it for my self. Super friendly staff provide just thre right amount of attention. Their home-made pasta was awesome! Normally, I would order a different entree on a second visit, but their spaghetti was the best I've ever had. My partner dined on the fresh seafood and also ordered it a second time. I cannot wait to return to Ft. Lauderdale and La Dolce Vita.

Italian's own and operate this restaurant and they know what they are doing. The carbonara was REAL, everything was really lovely. Great simple menu but fresh ingredients. Excellent service, we were certainly well cared for indeed.

We tired it, and sadly both of us felt ill and "burpy" that evening. The food tasted fine, not great, but fine.

Fantastic on all fronts. Service was excellent and the place was packed. Beer & wine only for alcohol.

We split the buffalo ricotta appetizer with prosciutto slices & arugala. Different with the ricotta but very tasty. My wife had the gnocchi's and I had the Chitarrina “La Dolce Vita (Homemade square spaghetti w/ sauteed mussels, Mediterranean clams & shrimp in pinot grigio wine & fresh tomato sauce). For desert she had the chocolate lava cake and I had tiramisu. One of the top two I've had, creamy and full of flavor.

Make sure you add this place to your list of restaurants. A short drive from the Marriott beach place tower where we stayed. We went on a Monday and by 6:30 the place was jammed.
