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

This is always a favorite while in PV. The special was special indeed. Pasta with white wine sauce, seafood; mussels, shrimp, clams and prawns in the shell. Extreme filling. A half portion would have been preferred, but, what the heck, walk it off. Bread and breadsticks are great. We always like to eat upstairs where we can people watch.

Have eaten there 4 times since arriving in PV. Get the Saltemboca it is wonderful. Great food and service. Prices are moderate and worth every penny. Go there and enjoy the view right on the beach while you dine on authentic Italian. Highly recommend

I was with a friend who had not eaten at La Dolce Vita before. I eat here as often as I visit Puerto Vallarta. Midway through the week my buddy tells me he wants some pasta with seafood. So I told him that La Dolce Vita was my favorite place for Italian food. When we were leaving, he told me... More

The service is good not excellent, the waiters are always pushing you to finish your meal and is not very kind. The dishes are too expensive than others place in Puerto Vallarta less expensive but with a little bit... More
