La Dolce Vita Restaurant

Slow your pace of life with a relaxed meal reminiscent of an extended family gathering around the table in Italy. If you plan to add some Italian cuisine to your getaway to the Outer Banks, La Dolce Vita Restaurant is a great option.

With the popularity of La Dolce Vita Restaurant, be sure to call ahead or make a reservation to avoid a wait!

The Menu at La Dolce Vita Restaurant

Bring your appetite when you come to dine at La Dolce Vita, where portions are large. Whether you’re a seafood lover or you’re simply craving a heaping plate of pasta, there’s something for every diner here. A favorite for those with the taste for seafood is the seafood diablo, which features shrimp, mussels, and lump crab tossed in a spicy marinara bourbon cream sauce served over a generous portion of spaghetti. Their signature dish, crab and shrimp a la penne vodka, also features crabmeat and shrimp, this time over penne pasta and tossed in a sunrise vodka cream sauce, fresh diced tomatoes, and basil tossed. The hand tossed gourmet pizzas are a popular option for families, and you’ll find over a dozen specialty pizzas to choose from.

Let your conversation linger long after the last bite has been eaten when you order drinks at La Dolce Vita. A combination of both bottled and draft beers are available, including some local North Carolina beers and some from Italy. Wine is available by the glass, with both whites and reds available to complement your meal.
