Great Pizza

We actually stumbled upon this restaurant on the Malecon and we had lunch in there the first day we arrived in PV. The pizzas are incredible with really thin crust and fresh ingredients. Great people watching at the window table with a couple of glasses of wine! We then went back (made... read more

We have been coming here for years and no matter which pizza,or pasta or for that matter which appetizer we have tried we have always been pleased. Been to both Centro and hotel Zone and menu seems consistent. Love Centro because the greeting is that of old family members. Service is always fast and good.

Every time we go to Puerto Vallarta we make sure to visit La Dolce Vita. In season, there is usually a vast and they take no reservations. The food is always well prepared and the device is crisp like a well oiled machine. Great Italian on the Malicon!

Well this place is right downtown PV and they have a place in Nuevo Vallarta. We went to both but the downtown one that's been there for 25 years or so is where we had our last night in PV for dinner. What a great waiter. We got a spot right by the window after some torrential weather during the... More

What a great italian restaurant with the best pasta and veal and great prices. The wine list was extensive and not over priced. Right along the boardwalk in old town!

After the better part of a week eating (mostly excellent) Mexican food, my 17 year old daughter was craving Italian. I was somewhat skeptical that we would find something that matched some of our favorite Italian restaurants in other cities, but La Dolce Vita was a very pleasant surprise. In general, the service was efficient, the wait times more than... More

La Dolce Vita, definitely one of my favorite restaurants. We have been in Puerta Vallarta for a little over 2 weeks and we have been to la Dolce Vita restaurant 3 times. Of course my favorite meal is the spaghetti with sausage and meatballs. Yesterday, Pat and I shared one of their great pizza's. We always sit in the the... More

Great atmosphere with service and food to match.Right on the Malecon, give it a try. We both had pasta and you would think we were in Italy.. The place has class and yet is reasonably priced..

We come here every year we are in Puerto Vallarta. The food is always great, fresh pasta, the best pizza plus all dishes are good. They couldn't be more friendly and the service is great - they remember us from year to year. That is special
