Dolce Vita Ristorante Boston Reviews
Magnifico! Delicious Food, Fun Atmosphere, Great place! Oct 21, 2008
We made reservations for our 5th Anniversary dinner about five days in advance for a Friday night at 7pm. We arrived a few minutes late and as we walked in the manager/owner (?) asked if we had reservations and said he's have a table in one minute. A few minutes later we were seated at the best seat in the house...right on the street! This is our opinion because you have the loudness of the fun atmosphere on one side of you and the quietness of the street on the other. This restaurant is on the smaller side and the tables are a little close but not space-invading.
When you walk into Dolce Vita, you feel like you are transported to a place in actual Italy. There were two men going around singing to each table playing an accordian and a guitar. They were absolutely wonderful! Whenever they played a well-known Italian song, everyone was encouraged to sing along.
Our waiter was nice and quick with everything and never forgot about us even in the hustle and bustle of all that was going on.
We had good house wine and delicious bruschetta. I had the Eggplant Rollatini which was to die for! Nice large portions leave you very satisfied if not with a doggy bag. We were so full that we couldn't fit any dessert or coffee.
We were happy to find this restaurant because it has basic authentic Southern Italian food and is more affordable than most North End restaurants. Keep in mind this is not a quiet candlelit place...it's loud and fun but equally romantic. The singers that I mentioned made there way to our table and sang two slow Italian love songs. This night ended up being so perfect for our Anniversary and we would highly recommend it to anyone for any occassion.
