I usually have my dinner here then I am visiting Tartu. Food is very good and the prices are not so high if you starting to compare what you will get in other places to eat in Tartu. So if you want to be sure to have fresh and tasty meals for reasonable price - go there. The food is... More

La Dolce Vita is a must when in mood for Italian food. Carpaccio & Vitello Tonnato are delicious, not to mention the pizzas!

The next night - Friday - we went back very hungry. The place was PACKED 9 we could have made reservations but we didn't... More

Excellent pizzas and really wide list which actually makes it hard to choose. This time had pizza (with extra toppings) and dessert. I will be coming back that's for sure!

Good, tasty food and big portions. But atmosphere was a bit too noisy, even though it was Tuesday night.

Make reservations! We didn't eat till 9:30. It's a popular place. One of had a new pizza on the menu that was really good and the others had different pastas including Pasta Carbonara. Salads were good and so was the dessert. We also enjoyed the wines. Tartu was not on our original itinerary on our trip through the Baltics but... More

Centrally located Italian style Pizzeria and Restaurant. Their food is quite average, not bad, but not anything special, and the wine list is quite limited.

Charming atmosphere and the staff were attentive. While my lasagna was quite nice, it was also a little burnt.

La Dolce Vita is an Italian restaurant which opened its doors in 2003. Its Italian owners serve up traditional dishes from their country. Its pizzas are made in a wood-fired oven which is unique in Tartu, and there is a wide range of pasta dishes to choose from. Some pasta is imported from Italy, while the rest is made on site. The menu also features traditional meat dishes. The quality of La Dolce Vita's menu is reflected in its simple, authentic components: Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, tomatoes and olive oil. In the summer months you can enjoy the warmer weather on the restaurant's terrace. The restaurant itself is close to a beautiful park, which is the perfect place to enjoy the gelato (Italian ice cream) that the restaurant offers.
