Friday nights are the best here: you get live italian opera while you wine & dine. I love this place for its setting (if you chose to sit outside). The seating on the inside looks a little cramped-- but i've never sat inside. why sit inside when you can sit in a nice little alley with a sweet setting? :)

The food variety is typical italian dishes. Food tastes good. Great service! :D

When your feet are still sandy, your hair salty & windblown, but you want to wear your bikini under a beach dress at a nice Italian place w/ decent wine selection, La Dolce Vita on Prospect is a good spot!

I do recommend it--great place to take a date for a romantic evening, it IS right off Prospect! BUT the tables are crowded and there is no bar or waiting area for that matter. Pretty much nothing for me (vegetarian) worth mentioning. But my friend said the Pizza Margherita tasted like one he once had in Rome!

Service could have been quicker. How many years now and they still have the same scary bathroom...down a long dark hallway, i have to take my pepper spray with me every time! But as for the food, it's pretty good for non-vegetarians and affordable! I will say, the atmosphere is very nice!

Pros: Example: best croissants in town

Cons: What are the drawbacks?

The food was amazing! Their salmon dish and vegetable pizza was really good. On some nights, opera singers come and they are very entertaining. You feel like you're in Italy when you're dining there.

La Dolce Vita is a great little store hidden away in an alleyway. It is a great place though!
The service was a bit slow but the pasta was delicious and decently priced.

La Dolce Vita is a hidden gem in downtown La Jolla. The prices are a lot more reasonable than other places in downtown. It is a small place but the service here is great. They are all very personable people. The entrees are fairly good. They have house favorites like the dolce vita chicken. The linguini is good and so is the chicken parmesan, but the BEST thing at this restaurant is the bread garlic dip. The sauce is divine! I would eat just bread and this sauce if I could. The best part is that you can take it home for a price.

PROS: cheap for location, good food, GREAT sauce, friendly staff
CONS: small, can be crowded

This is a quaint little restaurant tucked away in a little pedestrian walkway off of Prospect Avenue. You feel like you are dining in Italy. The food and service were great.
