La Dolce Vita
Great service, atmosphere and food. This was my second time visiting and they took great care of my wife and me and we had a great anniversary.
Service was rushed.
Great to return after years. My uncle (an old time Hollywood director) lived on Spalding and we'd meet there; but that was a decade or more ago.
Matre'd was exceptionally cordial and the food was quit good. (On par with La Scala or the Grill) Not too much selection but that usually means better quality... Pricey but ok size portions.
Calamari Friti was excellent as was the Lasagna.
Will be returning... (Park in the BH Public lot entrance on Roxbury and Santa Moncia and walk the 1/2 block.
Great and wonderful place to have a great meal . The place is so special.
Great as always!
Friendly waiter, great food, prompt service, enjoyable evening
Old school reliable restaurant full of charm with professional waiters and great food!
A great hang out in Beverly Hills.
Great place! Would recommend to anyone! Nice atmosphere too!
We really love this place. Great food and service.
The eggplant parmigiana was disappointing but I can't expect authentic Italian food in Beverly Hills.
Expensive but very good. The salmon was delicious but a little salty.
I love everything about this restaurant. Especially the noise level is sweet and low.
The service was good, but the spaghetti and meatballs (a house specialty/homemade) were not. I had to use a knife to cut through the tough meatballs and I didn’t want to even eat the other two. I don’t mind spending money on good food, but $29 for a small bowl w/ bad meatballs was robbery.
I love this place! Old school Italian vibe. They have a new chef and have added some items to the menu. The eggplant and beef carpaccio were spectacular...even the sautéed spinach was extra special.
Food and ambiance was great as always...the service was rather slow.
Outstanding Gem in Beverly Hills. Great food. Old school vibe.
What a wonderful place. Old school ambiance at its best.
Such an anomaly on Saturday night with the wait time. We waited 40 minutes before our dinner order was taken, then it took 1:20 hours before our dinner came out. Never have had this experience before, but the food, the server staff and especially the drinks were amazing, as always.
Old school charm in this small Italian bistro. The small size and dark ambiance transports you to a different place where good chatter is being bantered about over wine and food. Had salmon special over risotto which was exquisite. Tiramasu for dessert is a must.
Beeen going to La Dolce Vita since the early 80's. I miss Jimmy and his wife Ava. My pal Rubin retired, however there are still friendly faces.
Or meal was delicious on March 20, 2019. I will always return.
We are regulars, and we get excellent service each time. They never disappoint!
Great service and elegant place
Loved the service and ambience but both of is found the food to be overpriced for the amount and quality. Sorry, but disappointed..was really looking forward to going there and enjoying a top notch food experience.
It really was an awesome place we sat in the Frank Sinatra booth you have great wine great food osso bucco and the Sinatra steak was the favorite as well as the veal marsala
Great wonderful place ... the restaurant has not changed ..it’s a masterpiece
Celebrated Valentine’s Day at this gem! Absolutely love this restaurant- great ambiance, history, service, and delicious food!
One of the few restaurants left in Los Angeles with the former glamour of the city still in full view. The bar is a fabulous homage to yesteryear when Sinatra and company were regulars. LA is a city that is not respectful enough to its history and la dolche vita has maintained and captured what made the town’s reputation great originally. I better not say too many more wonderful things about the place, rather keep it As one of bev hills best kept secrets!
Saw a tv special about La Dolce Vita and thought that’s a cool restaurant. Then while we were in LA for a doctor appointment we decided to check it out. It was even better than we expected. The atmosphere was wonderful, the service was stellar and the food was delicious.
It was exactly what we wanted. A quiet, classic Italian restaurant with a full bar and great service. Drinks prices were on the high side, but food and service were en pointe.
Thank you for accommodating our group.
It’s consistently great food at this restaurant. I love the Caesar salad and think it’s the best one in town! Chicken parmigiana- great! Sinatra Steak- great! Penne Pasta great! And I love the relaxing atmosphere! Super Comfortable!
Old Hollywood ambiance, good service, food was good but not outstanding. good martini
Server forgot to bring my cocktail, chicken parmigiana was over cooked/burnt and the Sinatra steak was undercooked. Wasn’t a great evening.
Service, Ambience and Food were fabulous! Will return next time I am in LA.
What an absolute disappointment of a dining experience! Save your time and money. Frank Sinatra would be shaking in his grave if he witnessed the travesty of a Valentine’s Day dinner in which my girlfriend and I shared last night at La Dolce Vita.
If you enjoy paying $90 a person for a pre cooked plate of spaghetti and meatballs and over cooked dry chicken Milanese, then this place is for you! How this restaurant centrally located in Beverly Hills can still pay their bills is absolutely shocking to me.
The staff clearly half assed everything they could have last night at dinner. And to add insult to injury, they felt the need to include 25% gratuity onto my bill! This was an outrageous gesture considering there were only two people at my table. Not a party of eight or a party of nine, which is standard when it comes to automatic gratuity added to a bill. After demanding that the 25% tip they took for themselves be taken off my bill, I was treated with petulance and a nasty attitude from the manager and bartender.
I frequent and enjoy exploring new restaurants in LA on a regular basis and cannot remember leaving a dining establishment with such a bad taste in my mouth.
Best of luck to you La Dolce Vita, you’re certainly going to need it!
Was like being in the godfather movie, what a setting and the service was superb
Our waiter, Jose, is wonderful. We come every year for our anniversary. Food, atmosphere and service, fantastic.
Excellent restaurant. The service and food are amazing.
