Always Perfection

Strangely, this is one of the best Italian restaurants we have ever eaten at. Wo go at least once every time we visit PV. Gnocchi are perfectly cooked. Pizzas are wonderful. The staff is warm and friendly. We always order the prosciutto and cantaloupe. Always want a second order.

La Dolce Vita on the Malecon offers great tastes of Italy in Puerto Vallarta. Pastas are homemade, rich, generous. Take advantage of the seaside and order one with seafood. Pizza choices are plentiful and the several we've enjoyed are thin-crusted with just the right amount of toppings and baked to perfection. Salads are fresh, but the diced fresh tomato bruschetta...

A very enjoyable end to a lovely evening, with excellent freshly cooked food. Tables available ground floor and upstairs where if you are lucky enough to get a window table there is a beautiful view of the ocean and passing night walkers. Quick, polite service, attentive staff, good portions & varied menu.

Food is exquisite; service fantastic; Italian vino was excellent. Get there early (on the Malecon) as after 5:30...you'll wait at least 45 mins. No reservations.

We had dinner here twice on our 14 day stay. After the first time we simply had to go back and do it again. Few restaurants are worth a second trip during a short vacation stay but this one is. We sat on the lower floor right by the window facing the boardwalk. Great seating, great atmosphere. We each ordered... More

Always good food and service. Magi-magi special was fantastic. Provides very good value with service to match. We visited here five times this trip and will keep coming back each year.
