Highly recommend this little Italy place. The gelato is a must try. Reasonable prices and great service.

Easily the best gelato in the Phoenix area. No one else comes even close. Not over-sweet, like many of the others. Perfect balance of texture, taste, flavor and sweetness. True Italian style !


Owner is a jerk. Literally hung up mid sentence.

Service was a bit slow. However, the Italian meats are delicious and packaged nicely.

There's always a wait here. And the manager or owner is argumentative to customers.

Horrible set up just to get gelato. Get your flavors off your website if you don't have it in store!

Let’s begin with lunch….The Emilia is beyond compare! It was the most amazing panini I’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing. It was my birthday and to end my spectacular week with friends from all over the country…. We decided to end with the best! This panini took care of everything and I certainly will not need to eat another thing for the rest of the day…even tho I had gelato!! How could I not, after that lunch? The young man that took our order was gracious and helpful. Food came in a very timely manner and again — AMAZING!!After eating we, of course, indulged in gelato. The perfect completion to a perfect lunch. The Sweet & Salty gelato was so creamy and satisfying. Happy Birthday to Me!This may very well be my new tradition as we come every year and never miss an opportunity to stop by Dolce Vita!Give it a try and I will wager you too will become a life-long fan!

The staff were friendly, answered questions and were attentive. We say in the cafe deli section. I had a pizza. It was wonderful. Then we got gelatos. Do you know that it really was very different than other gelato and ice cream shops' products?!? It was silky smooth, rich and the flavors I had matched perfectly to their title. I will go again. They are 35 miles from my house.

Best Gelato in the Valley, hands down! Love it and eat there often.

Best gelato I have ever had.

This store is the best. From great gelato to a wonderful deli to the amazing food, it's everything you need. Just don't tell your nona that their cooking is better than hers. ?

Very RUDE !!!! We wanted to get some sliced prosciutto and they told us 30 min we have orders we have to get out. The machine was sitting empty. We asked the girl that was checking us out if she could cut some for us. She said yes. The guy yells no we have more orders ahead it will be 30 min. We left. My husband and have been to Italy and the people were so nice. These people who work here give Italy a bad name.


This place is amazing and authentic as they come. Fresh bread is unbeatable as is thier fresh ingredients. The sandwhich is at least 2 or more portions. One of the best sandwhichs I have had.

They were great. We got most of our Italian fixings for the traditional Sunday antipasto there.One critique; make sure you specify “sliced thin”. Mine were not and it made the rolling a little tougher.
