We're always pleased with La Dolce Vita...this time we went for lunch, yet every other time , dinner. Food is consistently good. They do a nice job with cocktails. Great place to sit outside, along the sidewalk, when warm out!

We were in Cleveland so I could run the Rock n' Roll half marathon. I needed to find somewhere to carb load. What better place than Little Italy. We walked up one side of Mayfield and down the other looking at menus. We chose LA Dolce

Group of four....did not know what to expect. Everything we ordered was very good. Only complaint we had was our salads were served on warm dishes. I prefer salad on a nice cooled plate.

I've usually just stuck to their Ladies Night on Tuesdays. The deal is pretty good. Buy a drink and tip your waiter $2, and your meal is free. You still get bread and butter starting off as well. The portions are small during then, but
