Still great!!

We always come here at least once every time we are in PV and the food is consistently great! I love the chicken breast in a Rosemary lemon sauce and my husband always goes for the pizza. They never disappoint and the view from the window seats is great😊

We always visit this restaurant when we are in PV. Great menu selection, tasty dishes, good service. If you order the Tiramisu make sure you have someone to share this monster portion! Right on the Malecon which is now mostly closed to auto traffic and made for pedestrians.

Regular food but lousy service I was there last January and the food was not what I expected, oh but it´s expensive, and the service is lousy, people in charge just don’t know how to treat customers and they are rude and just careless, tried the one downtown thinking it might be better, and closer to me, but no, they...

I didn't think we should go to an Italian restaurant in Mexico. That was a mistake for this was one of the best meals we had on vacation. They had a large wine list plus full bar. The service and cleanliness was top notch. Our meals came in a reasonable time and all together and hot. The staff were very... More

Wether you are in Vallarta for a long or short visit La Dolce Vita is an absolutely must! Location is right on the Malecon facing the bay. Dishes are carefully prepared. The pasta with Seafood in wine sauce is absolutely fantastic! Prices are very reasonable. First Class service.

This time we thought we would try Italian and found a very nice one on the promenade. It was bright and quaint and had a good crowd. My husbad ordered the Filetto de Carne Al Ferri and could not go through it. I stuck to a pepperoni pizza and with some help from the others managed to go through most... More

We two gringos went with our 4-person Mexican extended family for the PIZZA, of which there are probably 20 varieties. We were promptly seated, it was early evening, and and orders were taken promptly --some appetizers & one pizza (about 10-11") per person. Everything, from a simple Margharita (sp?) to a complex 5-topping (including anchovies for me!) was really good.... More

Went all over town, including cafe des artists and this place tops them all. The service was superb and the food amazing. I would say their service rivals EMP in NYC. We ordered the Venetian salad, antipasti plate, fresh tortellini with bolognese, and the Cardinale pizza ( if you get nothing- get this). I would highly recommend la dolce vita!
