Food was great, but the restaurant was very crowded. 11 of us were seated very quickly and the service was great

Ok so I'm a new yorker that lives in California now, but the reason I say that is because I know and miss good Italian food. This place had the best white clam linguine I've had in ages! SO GOOD.. dreaming about it.... was recommended by a frequent Vallarta traveler on the plane.. so glad we listened.

Wonderful food, great service, perfect location. If you want Italian food, with an ocean view this is the place.

Try the gnocchi. It was my second time eating here, the first time I had the Gnocchi and that was in 2003. 11 years later I made sure to order it again. Fresh and delicious.

This is the best pizza that I had in Mexico, but the bar is pretty low for Pizza in Mexico. The rest of their food is good but nothing outstanding.

I've been to the Dolce Vita restaurant twice (on each on my visit to Puerto Vallarta). Both times, I enjoyed the oven baked thin pizza, among the best I have ever had. It is on the boardwalk in from of the beach. The location is also great for tourists,.. easy to find. The service was very attentive.

Had not been to La Dolce Vita for may years. Its nicer than ever with the street closed to traffic. Ask for a table up stairs by the railing with a nice view. We enjoyed two meals on this trip. Shared a salad both times, having these dishes. Spaghetti alla puttanesca, Lasagna,Ravioli,Pollo alla Cacciatora all were very good. The wine... More

Great food and they are always busy. There is a leyend that says John Travolta used to get a pizza fro here everytime he came to Punta de Mita. Food has always tasted great. Prices are a little high.
