Without a doubt, this was one of the best meals we had during our week away. The prawn linguine was full of flavour and I counted 11 prawns tails at the end of the meal - some places you get 5/6 at most! My partner had the kebab which was presented beautifully and cooked to perfection. The food was so fresh and tasty, we do not have a bad word to say about the food but the service did let it down. We must have waited 10/15 minutes in between ordering drinks, food etc. We finished our drinks and tried to get the attention of a waiter but they were so busy rushing around we sat drink less, we would've also got a pudding each but again as we waited 15 minutes we did not order one. We asked for the bill, it did not arrive so we had to ask someone else for the bill, again it did not arrive so we got up to pay which seemed to really confuse the waiters. We could've easily spent 30/40 more euros here but due to the slow service we did not. The restaurant seemed to care more for bums on seats rather than looking after the customers already sat dining.

Really enjoyed our visit to this restaurant. The staff were friendly, courteous and professional. Food was of a very high standard and beautifully presented. We had prawn cocktails to start with and then shared the antipasti platter - very generous portions. Although we do not usually bother with a dessert, we shared the pavlova - the meringue was superb. We shall certainly be recommending the Dolce Vita to our friends!

Drove up and down Coral Bay to find somewhere to eat and the family decided on Dolce Vita as it looked fresh, clean and new. First impression was that it was very accommodating and had an Excellent Romanian Waiter (you will see him in the picture attached to this review) who was very attentive and friendly. Food selection was very good, portion size was very good, Taste was Very good. One Constructive point which may help is that the main dish of an italian is the Pasta, the Spaghetti Bolognaise was maybe a touch bland and needed more flavour, apart from that, was a pleasant experience and we visited twice in three days. Highly recommended.

Visited early evening with my 2 grandsons, we should have stayed at home! Absolutely dreadful meal, calamari to start, the body was full of hot oil which scalded my grandsons fingers, swimming in oil on the plate. Tired, dry spaghetti bol which grandson wouldn't eat. Margarita pizza, tons of cheap stringy cheese, also uneaten. Sad, dry chicken breast, obviously reheated chips and almost raw veg...shocking. The boys foolishly decided that lava cake would be OK....wrong!! It wasn't even liquid inside. Never ever again. They took the calamari off the bill as it was so bad and it was still €60 for one adult and two boys 7 & 10 and hardly anything eaten.

Arrived 15-minutes ahead of time at 8:30 p.m. and we were promptly shown to our table. The waiter brought us the menus but no wine list which we had to ask for, all was good we chose our starters and mains and bottle of wine with the waiter and shortly after our wine arrived that's when it went downhill. Nearly 1-hour after arrival we still hadn't received our starters yet there were people who came in after us who got their starters way before us it was only after promptly complaining and asking one of the staff did they arrive which were very average but it was the two main course meals that were bad, I had the fillet of salmon which was very dry and over cooked and my partner had the ravioli with spinach in tomato sauce there again very dry and no tomato sauce as though it had been warmed under a grill. This was our first visit to this establishment in the many years we have been coming to Cyprus and were so much looking forward to it only to be let down by awful service and over cooked food. On a positive note the wine was good and we did receive a 10% discount for the terrible service. Unfortunately this is one establishment that we will not be visiting again. If you want an excellent Italian meal and service in Coral Bay I would highly recommend La Vigna. Dolce vita does not compare in comparison.

We ate at this restaurant twice. First time was excellent, hence we went back later in the week. The second time we ate later, around 9 pm. Service was very slow, orders missed and 2 out of 4 meals had to be returned when they eventually arrived as they were cold! A real shame as our first experience was the complete opposite.

Rude staff and not so bad the food. The first time we had steak and was really nice we enjoyed it but the second time we went there we wanted to try the pizza but because we was 3 adults and 2 small kids and we ordered pizza the waiters didn't liked it because was only 2 pizzas and the drinks. (Kids was ready for sleep 1 and 2 year's old babies) His behavior was so rude and bad, he almost got us up from the table to leave. When I asked him if there is any problem with the order his answer was that they need to make money and he left the table upset. You should teach your staff to treat all your customer's the same. For sure not coming back again.

Our first visit and it definitely won’t be our last. The restaurant is new to Coral Bay and is tastefully decorated and very clean. It has spacious inside and outside dining. The service was excellent throughout the whole evening. Two of us had pizza and two had pasta. All meals were beautifully cooked, well presented and large portions.

I was gutted that I only went to this restaurant in the last few days of our holiday. For starter I had the Bruschetta which was divine along with a glass or two of Prosecco. The waiters were so attentive and made you feel a welcomed guest into their home. They were fantastic with my niece and nephew and really made us laugh. I ordered the lamb rack which was cooked just to perfection! They don’t skimp on the portions, so I would advise maybe sharing a starter. Oh and for dessert I recommend the Panna cotta it was so soft and wasn’t heavy. Do try the pizza also!! It was the closest thing I have tasted to real Neapolitan based pizza!

Decided to venture out to dinner whilst on holiday to mix up the samey samey all-inclusive food. Restaurant was clean with outside seating. We received complimentary bread, cocktails were good, we all really enjoyed our choices, 1 steak, 2 pizzas, and if you cant finish your food we did see some take away boxes knocking about as people were leaving. It was really reasonably priced for the quality of food we received and the staff were all really lovely. We would definitely return if we were here for longer,

We visited the Dolce Vita for the first time this summer and we were not disappointed. On arrival we were greeted by the friendly staff and taken to our table in the clean, beautifully decorated restaurant. The waiter was extremely friendly and helpful. We ordered garlic breads, bruschetta and garlic mushrooms which were all very tasty. We then ordered, a pepperoni pizza 🍕, a margarita pizza 🍕, Chicken in a peppercorn sauce and a Grilled Salmon - again all tasted gorgeous. We were so full we couldn’t manage a dessert!! We would highly recommend a visit here and will be definitely going again before we return home!! Thanks Dolce Vita!

I loved my meal but think i was lucky, others in the group said their's were not warm enough (although not cold). We waited a long time for food by which time my son was past it and ended up taking his back to the villa. After paying, we never complained as we could see staff were rushed off their feet and were lovely, we noticed other guests getting free drinks baklava etc but nothing to us. Still left a tip as staff were very nice. As I said really enjoyed my seafood pasta.

We visited this restaurant in “the strip” in Coral Bay three times as a party of 9. Couldn’t stay away! Brilliant staff, led by Katrina, made everyone feel immediately welcome and it go better. Her number 2 is Kostas, tirelessly monitoring customers’ meals and drink orders. Honestly, a level of service you don’t expect in an Italian-style taverna. Dover Sole cooked perfectly, Lamb cutlets and ribs and magnificent “home-made pastas” like Lasagnes- wow! Yes, we tried other restaurants, but wasted our time.

We tried this restaurant and absolutely loved it so much we had to come back on our last night in coral bay too. We normally use the other Italian up the road (la vigna) which is usually our favourite on our holidays. But to be honest Dolce Vita was 100times better in our opinion. All the dishes we tried were delicious and the service was impeccable. Staff were so friendly and always happy to answer any questions about the menu. The restaurant and all areas are clean and tidy and the decoration is lovely. Perfect for relaxing as a couple or with larger groups. We will definitely be back next year when we return to the area. I wish you did delivery to England as missing the delicious bruschetta and those gorgeous sauté potatoes already.

We went there yesterday. Staff was very friendly and welcoming. Tables are nicely spaced out. Hygiene was taken very seriously. And plenty of fans to remain comfortable in the warm evenings. The food was delicious. We weren’t super hungry so only went for mains. My pork scallopini was so tender and pure pork fillet no fat. Really nice. My wife had the chicken cacciatore which was delicious and nice and spicy. Again perfectly cooked. My eldest daughter chose the vegetarian mozeralla in pastry. Whilst really nice and well cooked, it was a bit too much cheese if we are honest. My youngest had the pizza margarita which was very good, really good base, but if we are honest too much cheese. Saying that we subscribe to less is more on pizza with our own home pizza oven. Either way highly recommended and we would go back.
