La Dolce Vita - Detroit Ratings and Reviews

We sat outdoors, which the ambiance was outstanding but the bees were bothersome. If it were only a few, it wouldn't have been too bad but there were so many!! They landed in our drinks!! Every table was using their napkins as swatting weapons!! Not sure I would recommend outdoor seating until the establishment gets the bees under control.

Great Italian restaurant. Summer dining is special on their patio. They usually have light entertainment on the weekends outside. Reasonably priced. Veal is excellent! Wine list is a little high but has some good stuff on it.

Beautiful place..that is all it is... Food is not just bad..it is terrible... they can not even make a good breakfast.. bus people spilled coffee and water and never even looked at us... waiter wanted to tell us how to eat..my husband said no hashbrowns please..and he said..yes I will bring them someone will eat them..imagine that..my husband did not want them on his plate and that is his choice to make..most places will offer him some sliced tomatoes or something instead..I am at a loss as to why they can serve this bad of food and stay popular..
I want to add a good note here..hostess and bartender were very nice

My fettucine was clumpy instead of creamy. I would of preferred the shrimp tails would have been taken off. Also thought my Manhattan was overpriced and it's presentation was nothing special. Our waiter and valet person were very professional and accommodating.

Celebrating a 50th Anniversary...everything was perfect!!! Service by Frank was impeccable...Francesco the chef..came out and spoke with us! Couldn't be any more complimentary to everyone and everything. The Anniversary couple that were my guests..their first visit..were SO impressed.

Disappointing and not worth the drive from the suburbs. Veal scallopini was dry and tasteless but the sauce with artichokes, mushrooms and capers was flavorful. Husband's lasagne was very good. Minestrone very good but not memorable. Only gluten free penne pasta available which doesn't suit many of the seafood entrees on the menu. Need a GF spaghetti or better yet linguini noodle.
Luciano's in Clinton Twp and La Zingara on Erie St in Windsor much better for authentic Italian food. Original Andiamo's in Warren better. Dated, musty smelling decor needs freshening up. Outdoor patio was full of bees now in August but would be pretty with the lights strung in the trees at night.

Once again our dinner was delicious, the service was the usual fantastic, the atmosphere was just right to celebrate our anniversary. La Dolce Vita is our favorite special occasion restaurant in Detroit. We will be back!

This restaurant, chef and staff are most inviting. The menu is generous. Presentation is comparable to any 5 star restaurant. We have had occasion to join in on wine tastings of the past and the food continues to remain incredible. Thanks for making my husband's 75th birthday celebration so special.

We ate our dinner on their lovely patio - which is the main reason we come here. The service was very attentive and accommodating. We each had a different veal dish and both, Marsala and piccata, were prepared perfectly. The Marsala was not the heavy, gooey, sauce you often get. This was light and very tasty. Lots of food, though. We both ended up taking some home. If you support the local classical radio station, WRCJ, you will get a punch card giving you a BOGO free dinner.

Waiter got our soups but not our appetizer. Brought my wife the wrong dish( had eggplant in it, not chicken). Asked him if there was chicken in it, he said there was (there wasn't). Finally explained to him after reviewing the menu again it wasn't what she ordered. Wife didn't want to wait for another dish to be made. Gave us 1 free dessert for the trouble. We literally only ordered 5 things (only water to drink) and he got 2 of them wrong. Terrible service. If you sit by the road outside its loud, lots of cars. No salt on the food. Bread is cold. Went to Olive Garden 3 days later it was 10x better than this place.
