Excelente place to come for a romantic dinner after long walk in Malecon. The food and service was amazing and watching the beautiful sun set from the second floor was cherry on the top :D

Very happy with the ravioli, alfredo and merlot by the glass! Excellent service and a great location.

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.

Took my mom out to dinner on one of our last days in Vallarta. It was a pefect setting out in PV. A slight patchy overcast, a nice mellow breeze, the colors of the jungle and surrounding "cerros" intermingled beautifully with the white and terracota colored rooftops of romantic PV. I have heard of "La Dolce" from my brother he... More

Family of four (two teens) ate an early dinner here on trip to PV recently. Recommended by concierge at our hotel and recommendation proved accurate. Were seated at a nice table right in front affording great people watching and view of the ocean out front. Menu is extensive with many italian options ranging from seafood, pastas, pizzas and traditional meat/chicken... More

Walking down the seafront dodging the rain we came across this gem of a restaurant . Our waiter francesco was very attentive and welcoming. The food is excellent and well priced with a great ambience. We where a couple and were well looked after but the care taken for all the families present was outstanding.

A great classic dinner option in Puerto Vallarta if visiting the Malecon. Excellent pizza bread and ample menu offering a wide variety of italian specialties.

We went with my three young children and had a wonderful meal. The waiter, Cesar, was great and patient. The food was excellent! This was the second time we had eaten there in the past two times we have been to Puerto Vallarta. We would go back in a heartbeat and we recommended it to vacationers that we met. Some... More

This is one of the few restaurants that I make an effort to make a must each trip. Once again it was a pleasant evening. We were seated by the rail overlooking the Malecon. Great view, great service, and great food. My only complaint is that there are too many good restaurants to make any location a return dinner selection.... More
