The food is consistently amazing. The dishes are extraordinary, the ambiance is very quaint and it never disappoints! Fantastic, high quality food every single time!
Next time we will have to sit in the bar area which was more lively...but we still enjoyed our experience. Our waiter was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and engaging. I wish I could remember his name!
The food was amazing and our waitress was super sweet and attractive. We love supporting this small business!
Thank you to our server for being so patient with us. Great experience as always.
I absolutely love Dolce Vita.. its my go to place!
We were seated early for our reservation. Excellent food! The only negative thing I would say is that the tables near the front brick pizza oven, it was pretty hot.
Food is consistently amazing every time we go to Dolce Vitae
Great service by Josh. Food was great. Bar tending drinks was slow. But we enjoyed our dinner and will be back.
Food was great. Service was friendly. Overall very positive experience.
Food was excellent. Bonus that wine was half an price for bottles. I’ll definitely return
Fantastic food and service! We were delighted by this hidden gem and will definitely be back.
This was a great surprise for us. It was 0.1 mile from our hotel so we were able to walk over without worrying about parking. Our reservation was actually for 30 minutes later, but they sat us right away! Our teen girls ordered different versions of the gnocci. My oldest ordered the spicy sauce and it was definitely spicy! She loved it though. My husband ordered the lasagna and liked it. I had the baked ziti but requested it to be meat free. It was good. For dessert my daughters ordered the creme brulee and tiramisu, but we all agreed the BEST dessert was the banana bread pudding that I ordered. It was amazing!
Fabulous Italian food and very friendly staff.
Great food and service! The 1/2 price wines on Wednesday always drag us in that day.
The only draw back was the noise level. The food was great and our servicer was friendly.
I eat here ever time I am in Fairfax. The food is great, the marinara sauce is amazing, and the wine selection is decent. Staff are super friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine. The restaurant decor is very pleasant.
Great tasting food. Excellent service. We were a group of nine. It was so good everyone was eating and it was quiet. Now that tells you how good the food is when you are focused on your food. Desserts were delicious. We especially liked the Berries with cream- cake was soaked in berries. We will be back.
Reserved a table for our wedding anniversary, hoping to be seated in the main restaurant area, which had open tables when we arrived AND when we left.
But no, we got shunted out into the wine bar area. Maybe just as well as it was cooler out there.
We asked the waiter to not rush things. Still, appetizer is STILL ON THE TABLE when the salads arrived. We told him explicitly to keep it slow as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. Too bad for us, I guess.
Incidentally, the alfredo sauce? I could have done better. Caesar salad? I've had better bottle dressing. Too bad Joe and Ricardo sold the place instead of shutting it down. The new ownership is clearly in over its head. And incidentally, shouldn't an alfredo dish get an offering of grated cheese?
It was our first time to come back after the pandemic started. The appetizers were good but the entrees were not what we are used to. They were bland. I ordered the Veal Saltimbocca and it had no taste. I ask for salt and not even that fixed it. The Vongole pasta and Chicken Parm same thing. I hope it was just a bad day for the cooks. We won’t be coming back for now.
Great Italian food with outstanding service. The bartender/server Lindsey was fantastic with the drink and food recommendations. Will go back again and again.
La Dolce Vita is a great neighborhood Italian restaurant. Pasta with seafood was excellent. June 2021.
Delicious food. Accommodation with our baby coming. Try the tiramisu!
We have been dinning at Dolce Vita for several years and miss the extended menu they had. The waiter was not as knowledgeable with the wine and did not asked how we were enjoying our meal until we we half way through.
This is my favorite place! Felt so good to be back with friends enjoying the food and wine. We had Josh as our server, if there is a better server I have never met them. He made our experience spectacular.
The food and drinks were great. Josh is a great server making many suggestions that made the experience all the better. Highly recommend.
My compliments to the Chef and kitchen. Our salad, two apps, and main course where simply delicious! My wife’s dirty martini was very good but my margarita seemed watered down and lackluster. We ate around 4:30pm and while the food was awesome to sunlight pouring in really showed the interior could use an update. Everyone was very nice and again the food was excellent. I’ve never had a bad meal here.
We sat outside and really enjoyed the food and service on the patio. Tasty marinated tomato salad, asparagus and meatball appetizer as well as pizza. Aperol spritz was refreshing. Thank you for a lovely evening!
Excellent food and service. Authentic Italian in a safe and friendly atmosphere.
Excellent food and service. Lunch menu a bit limited.
Food was average
Food is consistently exceptional! Everything is always superb, fresh and delicious!
The food was great. Oscar, our server, was wonderful. I great experience all around. We will definitely go back.
Warm atmosphere. Food Good. Wait staff attentive. A bit noisy as it filled up. Fairfax City Restaurant week menu was an excellent selection for the fixed price. Nice evening out with neighbors in a long time.
Local traditional Italian restaurant. Nothing fancy but the food is good and the people serving are really friendly. This is what a neighborhood restaurant should be.
Amazing food, wonderful service. This place is a treasure in Fairfax City.
Very cozy, high quality food and great bar. Nice dining room and ambiance.
My favorite Italian restaurants. I’ve never complained but this time I ordered a rockfish pasta dish in a white wine sauce that was very dry. The tomatoes were the redeeming ingredient in this dish.
Thank you for providing the perfect place for a long overdue gathering of friends!
Oscar was a great server. Coming from NY, this is a solid Italian spot. The menu isn't jammed packed so they can select what they want to do, and do it well. It was a great experience.
Too loud, service very alow. Been waiting for the bill no one cAme by.
