One night my husband had a craving for pizza. La Dolce Vita was recommended to us by an employee at the Sheridan. We were escorted to the second story where it was nice and cool on a very hot August night. Our waiter Lone was very attentive and took excellent care of our every need plus more!

Been here so many times and each time is a new and delicious culinary experience!! Their food is absolutely amazing!! Always packed in high season and low season but you never wait more than 10 min! Get a Carpaccio to start with and end with a Tiramisu!

One of my favorite restaurants in PVR; good, professional staff, reasonable prices; excellent chef, and a bit of mischief--all combine for a great meal on the Malecon.

Really good italian pizza. We had the frutti di mare and dolce vita pizzas. They are mid size and it's enough for one person. Visites this place with my wife. The view in the second and first floor are perfect. It's right in front of el malecon walk. The service was very good

The restaurant is nicely set and has an spectacular ocean view, but that's it, food is just average, even odd like a pizza with fine gorgonzola and cheap sausage, or a greasy parmigiana chicken breast. Prices are ok but they need to get their act together.

I usually shy away from Italian restaurants as I am far too often disappointed. La Dolce Vita always surprises me, as their food truly is delicious. Always busy and always a delight to the taste buds. Thanks for being around for so many years and for being a restaurant that is always reliable when it comes to great quality.
