Scenic and Delicious!

We'd heard it was good and everyone was right. On the Malecon so very convenient. The second floor has a great view of the water and a cooling breeze. The house wine was great and the thin crust pizza was just the right amount of crispness. The toppings were very fresh and the staff went out of... read more

My wife and I ate there one night while in pvr. We actually ordered 3 meals, appetizer and dessert. Prices were very reasonable so we decided to try several items that sounded good. Everything was good, really loved the pizza and the ice cream cake we ordered, my wife loved her meal & the bruschetta. We had a good view... More

We have been here many times before and it is always consistant. The waiters make it fun and we like to ask for "Loonie" . Eat upstairs, the view is great watching the people on the malacon and the waves from Bandaras Bay roll in.

A short walk from our Sheraton hotel in PVR...we loved the food here. Not huge portions but filling enough. The service was fast and efficient. If you don't want your meal in 5 minutes from when you sit down take your time to order. So glad we went here!!

We never miss the opportunity to have a meal here when we vacation in Puerto Vallarta! We especially love the tuna carpaccio, carbonara and their pizzas. Good selection of wine and awesome serving staff. We have introduced La Dolce Vita to many of our friends and it's been a hit with them all. Looking forward to going back in April... More

This place is a favourite for my wife and I. We have been here 3 times now and ever time it has been great. The pizza is made on a crispy thin crust and there are a variety of options. The pasta is also good but we prefer the pizza. It's right on the ocean and directly off the boardwalk... More

Once again, La Dolce Vita comes through. The service is excellent. Our cocktails, appetizers, dinners and dessert were fantastic. We highly recommend La Dolce Vita to anyone visiting Puerto Vallarta. We look forward to our next visit!!!!!

After a fun day at the beach we were told to try La Dolce for their great pizzas...we were seated upstairs very abruptly by an unfriendly aggressive, grumpy head waiter. A first impression that didn't inspire confidence. The same waiter pushed us for an alcohol choice so the house red was chosen and the prosciutto and fungi pizza was ordered.... More

One of my favorite restaurants in PV! Yes, eating Italian in Mexico can be wonderful! The pizza is amazing -- I swear I could eat one of their pizzas every day! I've also had a few of the pasta dishes and have never been disappointed. The view from the tables is great -- I recommend making a reservation/requesting a table... More

The pizza here is amazing. Go at sunset and watch the sun disappear into the ocean (ask for a second floor table). The service is also excellent and they have an excellent wine list.
