For our monthly dinner club (16 folks) we chose Dolce Vita, and we a had a great time and wonderful dinner. This restaurant layout is unconventional, and it resembles a trattoria in Italy. Two levels and many tables in cornery floorpan. We had a separate room, adding to fun. The service was pronto and accurate, the pizzas and the other... More

We enjoyed dinner here with a group of 6 on the way to a show at the Hobby Center. We shared 2 pizzas, 2 pastas, and a couple of the vegetables. The food was all wonderful! There was plenty to share, and every dish was excellent. Great service, great accommodations for groups, they take reservations, and they have valet parking... More

Three of us had had a very enjoyable dinner at Dolce Vita Pizzeria Enoteca on Saturday evening. Our primary interest was for their brick oven pizza, which I rate as one of the best in the Houston area - tied with North Italia, and just slightly edged out by Coppa Osteria. Their fried artichoke appetizer was superb, as was their... More

We shared three different pizzas -- margherita, taleggio with arugula and pear, and melanzane with eggplant. We had a hard time deciding which one we liked best. They also have an interesting appetizer menu. We tried the calamari, which was marinated rather than deep-fried, and the best calamari I have ever had. The crochette with pumpkin was also a stand...

Went to Dolce Vita this afternoon to experience their Margarita pizza which years ago was very highly rated and touted. When we went there years ago, can say it was one of the best pizzas we'd ever had!! Not so today!! The pizza was VERY SPARSE on tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese...mostly just bread. And the server refilling our water... More

We came here for a business dinner. Initially, I thought there was no vegetarian options. I couldn't understand the menu because it was "authentic". They need to translate within the menu to help. Good thing a had a "foody" with me. Once that was figured out, the food was excellent. I'm a small eater but I actually finished my dish... More

This quaint old house makes a great restaurant but be prepared to valet park. The bottom floor houses the bar, kitchen, and some of the tables. Many more tables (and the restrooms) are located on the 2nd floor. The menu isn't huge (the wine list offers more than the menu) but does have a wide variety of choices as well... More

This place has so many fabulous appetizers, pastas and pizzas that I never know what to order. If I lived here in Houston, I would go to this place every week and try everything on the menu. When you go, just order anything that meets your fancy and it will be fabulous.

This was a lovely place we stumbled across in Houston. The Pizza and pasta dishes were both fantastic! Only downside is a lack of a kids menu or kids proportioned meals.
