My wife and I went to dinner at La Dolce Vita in downtown Lemont Friday night, April 22, 2011. After a brief wait we were seated at a cramped high top table in the bar area; even the waitress commented we had a ""special"" table.
From that point on, the service was extremely slow. We had to remind the waitress several times to bring items previously requested to the table. At one point we went to the bar to get our drinks that were never delivered.
The food was of poor quality. The salad dressing tasted as if it came from a pre-packaged bottle. The veal parmesan was very salty. The food presentation was poor.
Despite the disappointing dinner, we STILL had to pay $75 for two people, two meals.
We have passed our disappointing review on to friends and family, and from now on we will spend our dining dollars elsewhere.

Great old building, nice atmosphere, excellent service with a group of 10. Appetizers were outstanding: calamari, goat cheese, and one more that escapes me. Veal dish was above average, served piping hot with an excellent sauce, peppers, onions, etc.... Wine list was solid, but not too flashy. They had the bottles we wanted. Tirimisu was a very tasty. I'd go back.

Yes, the food is good here, but there has to be more than just food. I am Italian and I keep saying that these people cannot possibly be real Italians. They are soooo unfriendly and cold. You cannot make reservations here. OK - I can deal with that, but how about customers that have been coming in a couple of times a week for a couple of years. Wouldn't you expect a little consideration - like -""We'll try to get you in a soon as possible"" - no - it's more like they have never seen you in their life. Or - how about this - ""Could we please have a vegtable instead of potato"". The answer to that - ""If we did that for you - we would have to do it for everyone"". Well - I am happy now - I have vented and by the way - we don't go there anymore. A better place with delicious food and people that are very happy to have you there (also, special orders do bother them in the least) is GONDOLA restaurant off Rte 83 at about 9300 South.

Ate there today and only wished we'd found it sooner. The ambiance was perfect, our server was attentive without being intrusive and the tilapia was the best fish I have ever eaten. Everything was just right, from the salad/bread to the flavorful marinara and both our entrees were out of this world. Unpretentious Italian cooking in just the right atmosphere.
