My first visit was many years ago when they only had a couple of tables and the restaurant was up the hill from its current location. The owner was a young man from Italy who fell in love while on vacation and never left. These are generations old recipes from the old country and we are all the better for... More

My wife and I stopped in for lunch as part of our stroll along the boardwalk. We ended up splitting a pizza as an app and both had pasta for out main course. The pizza was delicious, the pasta was made with fresh ingredients and were very good and the staff were great. An excellent meal with a decent value... More

It's new and a little modern looking for a Nuevo Vallarta experience. Could be in Chicago. But the food is great. Wood fired thin crust pizza is to die for. Multiple fresh pastas. Staff speaks english and is happy to offer specials and made to order selections. Pastas and pizzas ran about $10. We were a party of three and... More

We have dined here with family, friends or on our own while staying in Puerto Vallarta. The food has always been good if not outstanding. The staff is friendly and efficient. They have great specials. Their carpaccio di polipo (octopus carpaccio) is fabulous. It is a casual place and always a fun atmosphere. They are open late, so when you... More

Having the anchovy pizza at La Dolce Vita is a regular stop during our vacations. I've yet to have a better one anywhere and have been watching the reviews for candidates to try. The anti pasto dishes are also delicious. We tried their Nuevo Vallarta location but the pizza wasn't as good.

I visit Puerto Vallarta often and for many years. La Dolce Vita is my 1st stop when I arrive! I'm from Chicago aka Pizza capitol of the world but that a lie because La Dolce Vita is the BEST PIZZA I have ever had. The staff is welcoming and friendly. In my many visits, I have never had a single... More

great food great waiting staff, but bar staff are rude and ignore you and as such they should not advertise as a bar and remove the TV's. Found this out when I wanted to have couple of drinks prior to dineer and was presented a bill with the drinks as a tab could not be carried to the dinner table!... More

The food at this restaurant was outstanding. I have eaten in the best restaurants in Paris and London and New York, and will say the three meals I have had at La Dolce Vita ranks among them. The pastas and sauces, especially those with seafood, are wonderful. I tasted the pizza and it was so surprisingly good, I just did... More

The restaurant was recommended to us by our driver. He said it is the best pizza in Vallarta. We agree! Possibly the best pizza this side of Venice! The food was delicious, the service was excellent, but wait until you hear this: The Malecon was recommended to us because my husband is disabled and uses a mobility scooter. Yes, the... More
