This place is located right on the main street in Manteo. Parking lot is a little small. The food is EXCELLENT! Portions were very large. The variety on the menu will take care of the young to old with the many choices! I will visit...More

First off there are not that many restaurants open in Manteo in January for lunch, so I really appreciate that they stay open all year. That said the food was hit or miss. My Stromboli wasn't the best but the pizza was above average as...More

Awesome food with great service. The atmosphere is romantic and very relaxing but if your not into going out they deliver to your home. The live piano music is very beautiful music.

The building was not inviting; however, we had heard that food was good Italian. Lasagna was ok, Antipasto was interesting (we had expected a salad but it was a combination of meats & cheeses without any lettuce). Service was good.

The pizza was really good, thick bottom and lots of filling. The waitress was really friendly and everything went smooth. The evening we were there (Friday) there was a pianist playing.

Just three days prior to visiting La Dolce Vita I was in southern Italy eating seafood pizza. After visiting this charming restaurant on Roanoke Island and feasting on a delicious Pescatore pizza, I'm convinced that their chef should probably go visit those Italians and teach...More

We enjoyed our meal - wait staff served us politely and promptly. Nice small salad served with both the veal parm and chicken picata. Small pieces of bread were offered with dipping oil - dry and crunchy - no bread plate. Beer and wine only....More
