Poor quality food prepared by an incompetent cook. Service was fine. Will never go back.Here is my response to the owner’s response:Maybe if you put as much thought into your food as you do your virtue signaling you could provide a decent meal. I’m sure the cook is a very nice person, it doesn’t mean that they know how to properly cook chicken for fettuccine Alfredo. Perhaps I should have said “underwhelming dining experience prepared by a person that unfortunately was never taught how to cook properly.”#factsdontcareaboutyourfeelings

First time visit for lunch. Open for dining in. Visited 5 other restaurants (Oriental) in local area ALL w no dine in, to go only. Appreciate Dolce Vita open and welcoming. Promptly filled our glasses w ice and water, presented menus. Nice atmosphere w linens. and flatware. Wife ordered lasagna which came w fresh bread and side salad, half brought home. I ordered a Gyro which came w frys or salad. Both salads were fresh and had very good in house dressings. Bottle domestic beer $3.50, wine and full bar available also. Moist lemon cake (1 of four fresh desserts presented table side) we split between us. At about $33.00 I thought this was a reasonable price for very good entrees inc side, dessert and a beer. Looking forward to returning. A note to those restaurants keeping their dining rooms closed, your customer base will remember and may not return. I would not have tried Dolce but will definitely return when opportunity presents itself and in the neighborhood.

We took out 2 chicken parmigiana dinners and were blown away! Being from NY our expectations are high. We've eaten here before CV and enjoyed it but were skeptical about take out. All of that was for naught. Our dinners were beyond delicious. Great salad and dressings, delicious and abundant bread and fantastic chicken and pasta. We highly recommend!

I love the small, intimate feel of Dolce Vita, as well as wonderful food and wine. A great place to eat!

Went there last night and it was not crowded-teased my dining companion about shutting down the restaurant so we could have it all to ourselves! The bistro is adorable, our server was attentive without being a stalker and the food was excellent! What more does one need? Oh a perfectly chilled Prosecco! I will be back

Outstanding food, exceptional service. Small location but big flavors. Never had a bad meal here. The lamb is falling off the bone and the veal was tender and delicious. The linguini and white clam sauce was fantastic!

Fantastic little hidden spot. I make it a point to eat here every time I visit Tucson. Excellent food. Cannot recommend this place enough. Great Italian food and great staff.

I loved this restaurant when they were located at Pantano and Broadway. But rent increases forced them to move. For over a year I hoped they would reopen. Finally my prayers were answered. I think I've tried the eggplant parmigiana at all the restaurants in Tucson and non have come close to perfection as Dolche Vita. The rest of the menu items are just as delicious, hands down, in my humble opinion. I highly recommend this restaurant. Service is great, but the food is spectacular.!!

Have been a loyal customer since they were at Broadway and Pantano several years ago. They serve the best Italian Wedding soup in town. The owner also makes really good Bloody Mary.

Doesn't seem like it from the location, but this amazing spot hidden away is the best Italian food we could find. Staff are always very polite and happy to give suggestions. The food is authentic, delicious and prepared quickly. Definitely come in and help put this spot on the map, you won't be disappointed!

Dined here with a friend on Tuesday evening. Good Service, Good menu, nice “vibe” for a small, intimate spot. Would recommend this as a relaxing spot for good Italian - we had chicken piccata . . . Very tasty!

Joy Sandy

David Stephenson

Loved their place on Pantano Road, and love this place here! Harry and Irene always are so friendly, and the food is always authentic and delicious! The staff are always very freindly and attentive too!

Very small but nicely appointed Italian/Greek restaurant. I was craving Italian so based on the other reviews decided to try it and I am so glad I did! Very nice and clean inside, great service, and the food was very good. Even my husband, who isn't crazy about Italian, enjoyed his meal. We'll go back for sure.
