To go out for an enjoyable meal under a tent in a parking lot is weird but very delicious

I love that they will customize any dish to your liking, and all their sauces and pastas are homemade.
There is a lot to choose from on the menu.
The arugula and fig salad was outstanding, as was the homemade tiramisu.

Our table for two was reserved a few days before inside dining was available. However when we reached the restaurant on time there were no outside tables available. I expected that since we reserved before inside dining was allowed we would have an outside table reserved.
We had to dine inside.
The food was good and the server was competent.

It's a solid restaurant. Good food, good service, great value. Plenty of things for kids to eat (without having a kids menu). We're lucky to live so close to a gem like this.

Dolce Vita is a little gem in Fairfax. The food is very fresh and tasty. The restaurant was super busy on a Sunday night and the staff did a great job trying to get everyone seated with a minimum wait.

My friends and I had originally had made a reservation because of an email I received. In the email it said they were having a five course tasting menu for Valentine’s Day. It said it would be offering the menu Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. But when we were seated our waiter said no that was only for Friday. I showed him the email and all he said was sorry. My friends and I were bummed because every year we do a Galentines day dinner and thought this would be fun.
The food and service were very good but it was very loud because you are packed In like sardines.
I have been to this restaurant/wine bar many times because it does have yummy food but this was very disappointing. Disappointed in the customer service which says a lot about a restaurant.

First visit and was seated in wine bar area. Had a nice variety of good Italian wines in a tasting (flight). Fried ristoto and grilled artichoke hearts were very nice apps. Tried the homemade pasta with pomodoro sauce and sausage, meatballs and broccoli rabe as sides. Came out piping hot, cooked perfectly with great flavored sides. service was excellent. Will go again to try other menu items.

Valentine’s Day with a group of 8. We had a later reservation (9pm).
First the good: the service was very prompt and good. Each course was brought at the same time for everyone at the table. Each lady at the table was given a beautiful single red rose stem which was a very nice touch. Also, there were complimentary chocolate dipped strawberries which were good. I enjoyed my vegetable terrine as an appetizer. The bottle of red Valpolicella wine we got was good.
Now the bad: frankly the food (other than the aforementioned terrine) was barely mediocre, almost bad. Several people had the beef tenderloin which was overcooked and dry. I had the lamb and gnocchi - which might have been good at some point but were served barely warm (I’m trying not to say cold, but that’s what they were). Finally the dessert. I had the chocolate mousse trio. The flavors were good, but there, I barely had a teaspoon of each. Barely enough to taste. At $65 a pop for three mediocre courses, served cold - we won’t be back.
As a matter of fact, after we had dinner at Dolce Vita, we went and had a second dinner at a late night Korean BBQ joint...

So, nice staff, very friendly and prompt but they were let down by the kitchen as the food was a total miss.

We were here for the Valentines Day set menu. You could tell they were just cranking the food out of the kitchen as quickly as possible. They seemed to be in a rush to take our order, and the first course came out minutes after we ordered (by a different server). First, we were not offered bread. After seeing bread baskets on other tables, we asked for the bread and it was served. The first course was tasty (a brie salad and cauli bisque), but then noticed when the table next to us was served their salad, it had other things on it (and looked more delicious!). Second course was also good, the filet was cooked medium rare as requested, so I appreciated them getting that right. The lamb was also good. No complaints about dessert either. The food was all good, but the service was not. We had a bottle of wine, and after it was opened for us, we poured all of our glasses ourselves.

Dolce Vita remains a neighborhood gem, and while Valentine’s Day proves a test on any restaurant, the management and staff at Dolce Vita handled it with grace and welcoming service.

My 3 course prix-fixe choices were a beautiful Vegetable Terrine, perfectly grilled Loin of Lamb over tender and flavorful gnocchi, and a scrumptious Mixed-berry Napoleon. My date enjoyed the Walnut and Brie salad, the Lamb, and the Chocolate Mousse Trio.

A Red Rose was presented my date at the end of the meal, completing what was (as always) a delightful experience at one of my favorite restaurants in all of Fairfax County.

Food was well prepared and presented. Very tasty salads and charcuterie. Delicious pork chop and linguini portofino. Service was fine. Some language issues. Wine list was oddly incorrect which was suspicious. The physical plant was disappointing.

Very disappointing. This was one of my favorite restaurants, but I hadn't been in awhile. Major changes in staff, menu options and atmosphere all made this a very different experience. The food is n ok w mediocre, the staff unsmiling, with minimal service, and the wonderful Italian atmosphere gone. I wonder be recommending or returning. Very sad.

I said I would recommend Dolce Vita to a friend, but that may change the next time we go there. We've now eaten at Dolce Vita three times. The first two times were very good, but this last time was very mixed. The food was just ok overall. I'm inclined to treat this last occasion as just an off night (it was very busy, so maybe that was the problem), but we'll see.

I'm very sorry about your experience the other night. Our feedback is very important and greatly appreciated. We strive to hold our selves and the team to the highest standards and sounds like we mistake the mark on your visit. I truly appreciate you taking the time to provide a detailed account of the evening and I would love the opportunity to discuss this matter further over a phone call. I thank you and I look forward to hear from you. Best Regards Cyrus Coleman Owner Dolce Vita 571.296.1037

I've been coming to Dolce Vita since I can remember going to restaurants with my family. My boyfriend has been looking for an italian restaurant that reminds him of home in Bogota New Jersey. I suggested we go tot Dolce Vita and the rest is history. We've already celebrated a promotion and a birthday. We'll be back every month.

Cannenoli with Pink Sauce is amazing, Special Pork Chop is incredible, and the Chicken Parm to die for.

Dolce Vita is a remarkable restaurant. I've been to Italian restaurants all over the country. The food at Dolce Vita is on par with any restaurant you can find in Little Italy in NY, Boston or Philly. Why this place doesn't get more recognition is beyond me. The most authentic South Italian food you can find anywhere in the U.S. With a streamlined menu, the restaurants serves fresh fare wit ha good variety.
