We really enjoyed our food, great gluten free pizza and many other gluten free options. Friendly staff. We didn't wait long and that was really important because we have two kids (a toddler and a baby). It is not a cheap place but you don't have too many Italian gluten free restaurantes in Havasu

I live and Vegas and I'm surrounded by amazing food. When I visit Havasu for a little fun on the lake we are always upset with the lack of good food. But I now have my place. We went in Tuesday night expecting to get right in with plenty of tables empty, but we were so wrong. This place was... More

My wife and I have eaten at this location several times and have enjoyed each one. The selection is very good and the portions are a great size. Each time the service has been great and on the weekends there can be live music. Overall a great value.

Host and servers were charming. (Endless) bread basket was fantastic. Menu is terrific, but could have a couple more vegan choices (for me). Hubby had chicken parm, no knife required, he loved it. My angel-hair pomodoro was great. And the Caesar salad was exceptional. Good value for a great meal at a delightful place. Note...vegetarian/vegan can get a "good meal",... More

We would highly recommend La Vita Dolce as a choice for dinner! The service is fabulous, the extensive menu makes choosing difficult. I ordered the lasagna, it was so-o-o cheesy and yummy! My husband ordered the chicken parmesana...tender, juicy and cooked to perfection; served over your choice of pasta. We will definitely dine here again!

I am sorry but I would not recommend this place. No flavor, over salted and not hot. Slow services, but friendly.

This is a awesome place to eat. The service and food are wonderful. We were there on a Monday night. We waited about 20 minutes for a table. It was well worth the wait.

It was a very busy place. The food is excellent and they have a fair sized gluten free menul. Our server Monique was so cute,friendly and very helpful. As everyone at our table were eating the delicious looking bread she suggested a gluten free substitute. Yummy. We will certainly go there again next year when we go back to Havasu
