Okay let me first say, I used to LOve this restaurant about four years ago when I would visit pv. We would frequent dolce when we were craving italian, a couple nights a week.

We ate here around sunset & were given a first-floor table right by an open-air view of the ocean, sunset, Malecon (boardwalk) & it was great for people-watching. Best fresh fish I've had in Puerto Vallarta & that's saying something. It was tilapia & it was broiled in such a manner that it was identical to that of my favorite... More

We were seated upstairs overlooking the Bay and the Malecon. The staff was extremely friendly and efficient. The price was very reasonable and the food was very good. We were 4 people and shared 2 pizzas and bruschetta.

I know it is not Mexican food, yet this place won us over. The service left nothing to be desired. We were well cared for constantly by the ever so attentive staff, the food was fresh and delicious, and even better the cost was very reasonable. We ended up dining here a second time during our visit as a result... More

One of the best Italian restaurants I have been to! I highly recommend you go here. We ate here 4 of the 7 nights of our trip. We should have explored other food but this was just too good!

This restaurant has a second floor. The view from their is very nice of the Malacon. The food is good, but not great. I guess you don't really go to Mexico for Italian. Service was excellent. I felt the tomato sauce was caned with not much flavor.
