Risotto Al Gamberi

Homemade fettuccine pasta in a cream sauce of garlic, shallot, and parmesan cheese
The food was delicious, and the service was exceptional!
Great fresh pasta. Calamari was best we have had in a while. The Alfredo sauce was a little bland but the Americana pizza was spot on.
Great service and food! Excellent wine choices every time I’ve dined here!
Great staff! Good food.
The service was excellent, the food was good but not great and well proportioned, but the prices were really quite high. I've had better meals at Carrabba's for less than half the price. Not a bad experience just considerable more than we expected to pay for the quality of the food.
Delicious foods. We did indoor seating. Workers are all wearing masks. They are all nice and friendly! Will recommend
The food, the food, the food...... definitely the food. It ruined our Christmas Eve dinner.
Completely bland (all 3 dishes). One of my guests was served undercooked chicken (it’s hard to undercook breaded chicken)
The pasta seemed like it had been blanched last week and reconstituted prior to serving it.
The cream Prosecco sauce in my dish was more like heated heavy cream added to the plate without a single grain of salt, pepper or garlic.
Not sure what happened to this place, food used to be decent. Oh well, is off my list now.
Wonderful food and service. Will definitely return.
The evening was perfect. Food was fantastic. Waiter was amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed everything.
We came in for an early Christmas Eve dinner. We were the only family in the wine bar area which always perfect for COVID precautions. The service and the food were outstanding.
Very nice little Italian restaurant with some very good dishes at a reasonable price. Friendly staff.
They opened the regular dinning area and it was bright, loud, and our server rushed us through dinner and tried to up sell us on everything.
Been here many times and today food was way off. Everything came out cold and didn’t taste good. Could have be a different cook/chef for lunch hours.
Food and service outstanding
Cannot recommend the food here, it is bland. The dishes are not presented authentically and lack true flavor. The servers are very nice though.
Its been a while. Used to go quite frequently when i lived close
The food was beyond superb snd the service was fabulous
Glad you are open and surviving in these crazy times
Late birthday celebration
We have been going to Dolce Vita for many, many years and the food keeps getting better! Our server Jose is fantastic and has been there for a long time as well. His suggestions are spot on.. I asked about the scallops or one of the specials and he steered me toward the scallops. They were cooked perfectly, accompanied by broccoli i and butternut squash polenta..heaven! Another in our party had the snapper special which was a beautiful presentation and she said it was very good. Others had pasta dishes, all were served piping hot . A great evening with great food and friends!
Pandemic restrictions requiring tent and outdoor dining expose diners to considerable traffic noise, but food quality and service adequately compensate.
Night out with my daughter
The food and service were very good. Only problem was that it took 20 minutes or more past our 7.30 reservation for seating which was except able but when 9.30 came around the staff opened the doors in 40 degree weather to bring chairs in from outside and left them open until we said something. Would have been nice not to feel like we were being rushed out. Overall a good night though.
Always a good, authentic Italian meal and wonderful service! We love it here!
Great food. Large choice of wines. Great service. Id definitely go back
Food yummy; salad with figs delicious1
Nice set up outside. Waiter was a touch over worked but did a nice job. They have a reasonable priced wine menu with some nice choices. The portion and price was very good. The quality of food was good. We will be going back.
Good and staff are exceptional
Overall good food and wine but for the price point, service feels more like a diner than fine dining.
Love the outdoor seating. Food was delicious and portions are always perfect.
Great experience. They never fail to deliver great food and service.
The fried calamari was tasty but the marinara dipping sauce was flavorless. The chicken piccata was surprisingly bland, considering how much garlic (which I love) wafted in the air. The piccata was overpriced for what it was and I make a better on my own! We ate outside in the make-shift patio, which was in the already small parking lot. Luckily, we can walk there so we didn't have to park. It is a good spot, but not as flavorful as I expect Italian restaurants to be (but I am from New York).
Love Michael and Cyrus! Service and food were excellent. The wine was great too 😌
Decor was ok, server took forever to come over for our orders and was horrible (forgetting things, not being friendly, bringing wrong drinks or dishes, etc.). Food on the other hand was delicious.
Pario/parking lot. No matter
Great service good food
Top notch. Come into Fairfax for Dolce Vita. Genuine warm friendly greetings, from the front of house to the wine bar keeper. Actual _dinner_ music, not hurry-up/get out; makes a real difference. And the food. Been several times, never disappointed. Good value.
The food was excellent and the service was very attentive. I am so glad Dolce Vita made it through the shut down as the6 are one of my favorite Italian restaurants!
