Overall good food and wine but for the price point, service feels more like a diner than fine dining.

The fried calamari was tasty but the marinara dipping sauce was flavorless. The chicken piccata was surprisingly bland, considering how much garlic (which I love) wafted in the air. The piccata was overpriced for what it was and I make a better on my own! We ate outside in the make-shift patio, which was in the already small parking lot. Luckily, we can walk there so we didn't have to park. It is a good spot, but not as flavorful as I expect Italian restaurants to be (but I am from New York).

Top notch. Come into Fairfax for Dolce Vita. Genuine warm friendly greetings, from the front of house to the wine bar keeper. Actual _dinner_ music, not hurry-up/get out; makes a real difference. And the food. Been several times, never disappointed. Good value.

We visited Dolce Vita for the first time in years. The food and service are still excellent. We dined under a tent outside, comfortably distanced from other diners. Our server was attentive and made several great recommendations regarding wine and food. We'll be back soon.

Food was amazing. But we only ever saw 2 waiters handling all the tables meaning we had to wait a long time to order our food, they also messed up our order and we ended up not getting our appetizer till the entrees came out. The auto shop next door was extremely loud although I'm sure if we sat inside it wouldnt have bothered us. Many gluten free options for those with allergies in our party and food came out extremely fresh

I love that they will customize any dish to your liking, and all their sauces and pastas are homemade.
There is a lot to choose from on the menu.
The arugula and fig salad was outstanding, as was the homemade tiramisu.

Our table for two was reserved a few days before inside dining was available. However when we reached the restaurant on time there were no outside tables available. I expected that since we reserved before inside dining was allowed we would have an outside table reserved.
We had to dine inside.
The food was good and the server was competent.

My friends and I had originally had made a reservation because of an email I received. In the email it said they were having a five course tasting menu for Valentine’s Day. It said it would be offering the menu Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. But when we were seated our waiter said no that was only for Friday. I showed him the email and all he said was sorry. My friends and I were bummed because every year we do a Galentines day dinner and thought this would be fun.
The food and service were very good but it was very loud because you are packed In like sardines.
I have been to this restaurant/wine bar many times because it does have yummy food but this was very disappointing. Disappointed in the customer service which says a lot about a restaurant.

First visit and was seated in wine bar area. Had a nice variety of good Italian wines in a tasting (flight). Fried ristoto and grilled artichoke hearts were very nice apps. Tried the homemade pasta with pomodoro sauce and sausage, meatballs and broccoli rabe as sides. Came out piping hot, cooked perfectly with great flavored sides. service was excellent. Will go again to try other menu items.

Valentine’s Day with a group of 8. We had a later reservation (9pm).
First the good: the service was very prompt and good. Each course was brought at the same time for everyone at the table. Each lady at the table was given a beautiful single red rose stem which was a very nice touch. Also, there were complimentary chocolate dipped strawberries which were good. I enjoyed my vegetable terrine as an appetizer. The bottle of red Valpolicella wine we got was good.
Now the bad: frankly the food (other than the aforementioned terrine) was barely mediocre, almost bad. Several people had the beef tenderloin which was overcooked and dry. I had the lamb and gnocchi - which might have been good at some point but were served barely warm (I’m trying not to say cold, but that’s what they were). Finally the dessert. I had the chocolate mousse trio. The flavors were good, but there, I barely had a teaspoon of each. Barely enough to taste. At $65 a pop for three mediocre courses, served cold - we won’t be back.
As a matter of fact, after we had dinner at Dolce Vita, we went and had a second dinner at a late night Korean BBQ joint...

So, nice staff, very friendly and prompt but they were let down by the kitchen as the food was a total miss.

We were here for the Valentines Day set menu. You could tell they were just cranking the food out of the kitchen as quickly as possible. They seemed to be in a rush to take our order, and the first course came out minutes after we ordered (by a different server). First, we were not offered bread. After seeing bread baskets on other tables, we asked for the bread and it was served. The first course was tasty (a brie salad and cauli bisque), but then noticed when the table next to us was served their salad, it had other things on it (and looked more delicious!). Second course was also good, the filet was cooked medium rare as requested, so I appreciated them getting that right. The lamb was also good. No complaints about dessert either. The food was all good, but the service was not. We had a bottle of wine, and after it was opened for us, we poured all of our glasses ourselves.
