Great food, awesome service! Winnie our waitress didn't let our drinks run out, and stayed on top of everything. She was not pushy and perfectly friendly and attentive. Food was awesome and we'll above what is expected at first glance. I highly recommend it!

Winnie is one of our seasoned wait staff, she has been with our establishment for almost years. We are so glad you had a chance to meet her and looks like she left a lasting impression. Don't forget to come visit on Friday and Saturday night for our live piano player More

If you are at the outer banks, it is well worth the drive to Manteo for an excellent Italian meal. The food was as good as any Italian restaurant I have been to. The selection was outstanding, food well prepared, service very fast and friendly and the prices were just a bit above what I would have liked. I will... More

This cozy, very Italian restaurant is classy and homey at the same time. My wife and I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food, and the service was very good as well. We will definitely return to La Dolce Vita next time we are in the Outer Banks or Manteo. Only downside for us was they served wine and beer... More

We will not go back and the restaurant is just down the street from home. We will not recommend to friends and family coming to the island on vacation. I ordered vegetable lasagna off the menu and was told they did not have it, I ordered meat lasagna instead. The house balsamic vinegar salad dressing was too bitter for me,... More

I love this place. Seriously good pizza, with a truly excellent crust. Great appetizers, calamari, bruschetta, fried ravioli, to game a few I have sampled. I also had a delicious chocolate bomb to finish. The service has never been short of outstanding. I highly recommend a visit to this establishment.

I love the flavors of the sauce. My stromboli was so good. The portion sizes is enormous. I might have eaten it all; it was that good, but I didn't want to hurt myself!
