"We went here for Jersey Shore Restaurant week when there are three entree's on the menu. We had a 6:45 reservation, and at 7:00 they were out of the item I wanted. I was very disappointed. Our waiter explained that the dish takes 8 hours to prepare. Poor choice by the owner or chef to put an item like that on the menu for restaurant week. Who runs out of one of three "specials" at 7 on a Saturday night? The food was very good, and the service was excellent."

"If this is the #6 restaurant in Belmar (according to Trip Advisor) then there really is no reason to ever eat in Belmar again. Albeit it was Jersey Shore Restaurant week but that is no excuse. It started when we called to let them know we were running a few minutes late. They answered the phone "Hello". That should have been a clue of what was in store. Reservations were running 15-20 minutes late, not that big a deal in and of it self but the place was mobbed and louder then I could even describe; actually unpleasant. They had a price fixed special menu (if you chose) but ran out of the one entree out of only 3 that a few of us at the table were wanting. The waitress was terrible. Many rules, poor serving skills, reaching across people and didn't seem to happy to be there. My appetizer came out after the rest of the table had been served which makes everyone else uncomfortable; they're waiting, I'm encouraging them to eat, not acceptable. The food wasn't bad but not good enough to endure the environment, service etc. I ordered off the menu; the Calamari appetizer was good and plentiful, the pork chop entree tasty but over cooked. My wife ordered from the price fixed which was an over all bad choice; very limited choices and poor quality. Her salmon entree which is usually very easy to prepare was very salty. Everyone at our table of six shared similar opinions. We enjoyed the company and the night but we were disappointed in the restaurant."

"My boyfriend and I checked out La Dolce Vita for Jersey Shore Restaurant Week. The restaurant is right across from the beach so if you are dining in the summertime, you can see the ocean and if seated on the outside patio can dine outside. I love that this place was BYOB during the off season, and we even were able to have an extra bottle of wine delivered to our table. However, I made a reservation for 7:30, we did not get seated until about 8:10. It was also pretty loud and people were running around every which way- those waiting for a table didn't know where to stand with huge platters coming out constantly. Our waiter was very nice and we got our food in a timely manner. The mozzarella in the antipasti appetizer, as well as the fried mozzarella, was very dry. The thai calamari was okay. I loved the butternut squash dish on the restaurant week menu, however my boyfriend wanted the pork but they were out of that as well as the gnocchi. When there are only 6-8 entrees to choose from for restaurant week in general, that is kind of limiting. Overall I would come here again for the location and try new menu items, but if it's like that in the off-season I can only imagine how backed up it gets in the summer."

"We went because it was restaurant week. The food and service were outstanding I would not hesitate to go again and pay full price. The decor is understated and elegant , the service impeccable, our waiter Kevin gave us just enough attention to let us enjoy our dinner but never have to look for him when we needed something. 5 stars for sure"

"Fresh cooked food served by friendly staff and still BYOB until May 1st. Long hot peppers are a great starter. Our scallops and veal dishes were tasty and right sized. Close to our house and on street parking. Go and enjoy a fine meal and buy Matt a new Corvette. Elvira adds a friendly touch as the hostess. We will return."

"This is a nice family run Italian located right on the ocean. It has good sized portions and a mix of affordable wines. My pasta was fresh and the tomato sauce was tasty. My wife had the veal chop special and it was a big portion. Filled with locals in winter and of course packed during the summer months. Solid place with nice people."

"Everything so was nice, I had the gnocchi's and they were all good. My husband got the pork chop and loved it. BYOB in winter months so that is always a plus when going out for dinner. Priced very fair for the amount and quality of food. The only only thing I can say negative was that they had an outdoor seating area(I'm assuming) that they close off in the winter. That is were we were seated and although the ombionce is nice seats next to the window were cold and drafty. i am sure that area is absolutely perfect in the warmer months or even a night that is not negative degrees. :) can't wait to go back and see what else I can eat!"
