I've been coming here every few weeks for the last 12-13 years. I have tried pizza, lasagne, spaghetti etc everywhere I have been in the rest of Europe and nothing compares or comes anywhere near la dolce vita.. Food is very reasonably priced and the owners and staff are friendly and welcoming. Have tried every pizza on the menu but... More

The resturant is located at a side street, not far from the deck. The interior reminds of an Italian resturant. The owners (or so I believe they are) were very kind and helpful. Prices are reasonable, especially comaparing to the 13 euro Fish & Chips sold in resturants on the deck's road. We ordered pizza. I thought the sauce wasn't... More

We arrived in Volendam in the afternoon and we were hungry. This restaurant is located on the path from the main parking lot to the water front. We like pizza so we decided to try... The pizza - one with cheese only and one with mushrooms - was big and tasty. We also had spaghetti Bolognese– a big and tasty... More

We tried to customise and they were very accomodative. Very good Italian food. The restaurant is away from the busy street but worth walking the distance

My family had had a long day, and having experienced too many three-hour dinners in Volendam, we opted to stop in at Dolce Vita for pizza. How bad could it be? Even when pizza isn't good, it's still not bad. Right? We started with soup. Between us, we tried them all. Chicken, mushroom, and tomato. Chicken and mushroom were okay.... More

Whilst the location and decor of this restaurant is very good, the service is very poor and the menu is dull and un-interesting. There are not enough staff - it took 20 minutes for them to take our order and a further 10 to bring drinks. . The food took over an hour to arrive and we were not the... More
