Found this place after having dinner with friends in Ann Arbor. Place is huge, two levels, but very cozy with fireplaces throughout. Desserts and after dinner drinks were amazing. Lower level is a cigar lounge; but cannot tell on the main floor..... definitely not smoky

3 of us went for Dessert, which were excellent. Should have shared, as the desserts were huge in portion as compared to other restaurants. Chocolate was very good, and the lemon dessert was very nice. Had the crème brulee on another occasion was a great choice. Server was very attentive, pricing is not cheap ($35 for 3 of us, no...

I have been here a few times and am happy from the moment I walk into the place. The seating is couches and chairs around small tables, which leads to a very comfortable, relaxed, fairly quiet setting. The atmosphere is perfect with excellent ventilation, making this a great place for dessert and after dinner fun. For me this means a... More

We love to come here & have after dinner drinks & desserts! Since my husband started a cigar collection, he loves that you can bring in one of your own.

On special occasions, we've often found ourselves walking over to La Dolce Vita for dessert after having eaten dinner elsewhere. La Dolce Vita offers a nice variety of desserts in a very comfortable setting.

Tried, and I say TRIED, to go here for dessert after a concert on a Friday night around 10 p.m. Even though there were plenty of open tables and very few (less than 10) customers, the apathetic hostess said there would be a half hour wait. No explanation why, just that we'd have to wait for a half hour for... More

La Dolce Vita is a true treat in Ann Arbor. My brother goes to U of M, and whenever I visit him we visit La Dolce Vita after our meal. The atmosphere is incredibly cozy, unique and classy. The desserts and drinks are creative and executed perfectly. I've had nothing but positive experiences with the waitstaff. I will continue to... More

Came here on a Friday night around 8 and we were told that it would be an hour wait. However, it turned out to be only 10 minutes! The setting is dim and swanky, with low coffee tables and nice stuffed chairs and couches. The service is also very friendly and helpful. We went for the mocha (mousse), chocolate melt... More

The flying penis was the picture I got, it was pretty creative and a fun atmosphere. The wine is a little overpriced but an expense account makes it extra nice. Dessert, cigars and wine - I'll take it.
