great pizza

We tried La Dolce Vita for pizza as recommended by comments on tripadvisor. Great pizza and more than enough for both of us. Topped off with a nice glass of wine and located on the Malecon so it was a great place to go for a walk from our Sheraton Hotel.

Always a go to place for us, very comfortable there. They have amazing salads and wonderful authentic pizzas. Ask for a table upstairs by the windows, great ocean views and people watching. Tasty food at reasonable prices and friendly service, highly recommend!

The staff is very nice but the service is very slow. We ate out in a group of four, it seems like the pizza was better than the pasta entrees.

Nice to have something different in Mexico. Lasagna is good. Sometimes the seafood fettucini is better than other times. Calamari is good to start the meal.

La Dolce Vita usually has a wait, so arrive early. Although a little cramped for space, this open air restaurant serves excellent Italian food. The servers are friendly, and they move very quickly. Located directly on El Malecon, it gives you a great opportunity to people watch and enjoy the sound of the ocean.

We love the food at La Dolce so when in PV we make sure we visit a few times. Our first visit the service and food were excellent. Our second visit service was great but some food came out cold. Our third visit had to look around for our waiter much too often. Fourth visit was a disaster. Place was... More

Every time we visit PV, we have to go have dinner here... at least once! We always ask to be seated upstairs close to the edge (where it is open) and we can watch the sunset. Plus, it's fun to watch the people on the Malecon along Banderas Bay as well. The service is great. The food is wonderful- so... More

If you want a very nice Italian dinner with great food, wine and service you have to try La Dolce Vita! They have awesome seating choices - on the Malecon out front, main floor or upper level. Take in the sunset with a nice selection from their full-bar menu. All at a reasonable price. The young waiters serving us were... More
