A Taste of the Sweet Life …

Come get a taste of the sweet life … in Corolla, NC.  Classic Italian family recipes including hand-tossed gourmet pizza, homemade sauces, bread and desserts.  La Dolce Vita is a celebration of family, friends and coastal Italian cuisine.  Favorite items from our menu are the mussels, crab and shrimp penne vodka, seafood diablo, bone-in veal parmesan and house made lasagna.  We offer nightly seasonal specials including a delectable selection of homemade desserts!  Tables on our sound view deck are surrounded by flowers, so come while away the afternoon or get there in time to catch the sunset.  The whole family is always welcome – we are handicapped accessible and have a kids’ menu, high chairs and family friendly booths.  Join us for dinner or antipasti and your favorite libations from our full service bar which includes an extensive, award winning wine list, craft beers and specialty cocktails.  Open daily at 3 PM, serving until at least 9 PM.  Have an event?  We’re happy to help you with catering and can also host intimate parties, rehearsal dinners or even weddings.  We look forward to serving you soon!
