Always a nice break from heavy cuisine

The service is first class, the salads are fresh and delicious and the wine list is all you could want.

Very good restaurant located on the Malecon. We ate upstairs, by the windows and the view was great. The menu included pizza, shrimp, and lot's of delicious pastas. I always judge restaurants by whether I would return and this place is a winner. Fairly priced and great service.

My wife and I have eaten at the La Dolce Vita off and on for the last 21 years. The service from time to time is just "ok" . What the service lacks the food makes up. We are a seafood people. The seafood combination spaghetti is awesome. p.s. If your late at night expect a 40 minute wait at... More

Good food, good service but regrettably no air conditioning so if that matters to you, avoid going during the day - we're told it's cooler at night (and open until .02:00). Plenty of seating - could cater for fairly large groups without any trouble.

This is a lovely restaurant situated on the Malecon. It is efficiently run and feels / looks like an Italian. As such the restaurant is child friendly and the staff excellent. All meals we tried were good, never dissapointed and make sure UR hungry. If you tell the staff its your birthday bring ear plugs....

Walking the Malecon boardwalk and looking for a place for lunch. We got a nice table under a fan and in front of the soccer game. Son loved his pizza and we enjoyed calamari and prosciutto with melon. Great find especially when a break from local cuisine is needed!

For sure, this is the best Italian restaurant in PV. Service is great, don't leave this place without trying Margheritta pizza and the lasagna. You will enjoy it. They have a great view of PV bay, ask for a table next to the window a you will have the opportunity to shot nice sunset pictures. Definitely one of my favorites... More
