Three of the 4 in our party ordered pasta - delicious. Bolognese sauce was hearty with pieces of beef. Seafood pasta dish was so fresh - some of the best mussels I've eaten. Other meal ordered was the daily fish special - served whole but waiter deboned with great care. Salads were also tasty and enough for two. Didn't order dessert - went out for local ice cream instead.

The food is good but it's pricey. The service is professional. Every time I've gone the waiters have paid more attention to large parties and big spenders than to smaller groups just wanting an authentic Italian meal. The pasta selection could be enhanced and a bit more abundant in its serving sizes. The wine list is good. Definitely only for special occasions. The owners are authentic and friendly in general.

We recently visited La Dolce Vita to celebrate our 20th Anniversary. While in Ft Lauderdale we asked around and many locals pointed us to La Dolce Vita. They are warm and welcoming, it is cozy, and not too big or small. Attention to detail of service was amazing and the food was wonderful. My husband loved his Veal and the Truffle Mushroom Ravioli are so, so, so, good. Then they surprised us with a complimentary tiramisu to celebrate with us! Great Evening! Highly recommend!
