Our first visit to Grand Cayman revealed a wonderful treasure at La Dolce Vita: great Italian food, wines imported from the owners' home town in Italy, and one of the most spectacular views on the island. We expected to find great seafood. We were thrilled to find this spot. The service, food, and view were the best of several memorable... More

We had dinner to celebrate my son's birthday. My hubby & I had broiled lobster in a garlic mushroom cream sauce - delish! My stepson quickly scarfed down his mahi-mahi which I knew he enjoyed (even though he's a picky eater). Do note that their portions are small so don't skip the appetizer! Dessert was a caramel chocolate mousse called... More

I have eaten at Italian restaurants all over the US, and La Dolce Vita is now the best authentic Italian restaurant experience I have had. Every course was perfectly prepared, and the service was impeccable. I usually attempt to try a different restaurant every evening when I travel to a new location, but we will be making a second visit... More

While we appreciate feedback, I am surprised to hear such negative comments about the lunch that we served you and your family. We remember you well, and I personally prepared the food for your family. During your meal we talked and you were asked multiple times how everything was. At which the response appeared positive. If there is something wrong... More

we waited an hour and a half for our entrees and the waiter seemed to be avoiding our table so as to not have to explain why. We finally ordered a second round of drinks from the guy who refilled our water glasses. Food was not bad but we were so blind with hunger that we all inhaled our dinners... More

First ambience is great, you have a great view of the ocean and the food is amazing. I ordered a special dish of pasta and sea food, and it was so good. As they said is a little piece if Italy with a warm Caribbean touch. The waitress was brilliant and fun, and the owners are always there, passing by... More

We are very picky with our Italian food. And although the prices were a little high even for the island. I never mind when the food is excellent and this was.. Great view of the ocean and wonderful staff

A wonderful family run restaurant. A husband and wife team, he cooks the food and she runs the front of the restaurant. The restaurant is small with a beautiful view from the porch. Home made pasta, delicious wines, the short bread cookies are to die for. The service maybe a little slow, but this gives you time to enjoy the... More
