We went to La Dolce Vita upon the insistence of someone at the front desk of our hotel. We're so glad we went! The service was impeccable -- we received free bruscetta upon arrival, had amazing food, and then received a free after dinner drink! The restaurant was so accommodating and so generous we couldn't help but love everything. If... More

This local restaurant has delicious food and the service was excellent. Not only is the food delicious, they make you feel special with the a free chef's special before ordering to the after dinner drink serviced by the owner at the end of your meal. The atmosphere is relaxing. A little hard to find if you don't know where to... More

In addition to the amazing food and service, the wine list is the best deal in town. Instead of charging 2 to 3 times the cost per bottle, they mark the wine up by 200 to 250 pesos per bottle comparable to a standard discorking fee if you had brought your own bottle. And the wine list has some truly... More

They made us feel like royalty. The food was delicious and very artfully prepared. After adding a complimentary dish for our table, they were always nearby to serve our every need.

My husband and I visited Cancun in May to celebrate our 20th anniversary. We ate here our last night in Cancun and loved it! I had read the reviews and thought it would be worth making the trip on the crowded bus. And I was right!! We had extraordinary service and delicious food. We had the special and it was... More

The original La Dolce Vita was downtown and that is where it is today. The service is attentive, the food delicious, the staff friendly. My favorite is the Veal Chef Amilcar.

My daughter kept asking for pizza so I found this place on Trip Advisor based on the reviews. The down side is that it was about a 20 min bus ride from the hotel (which is far by Cancun standards). We got there and found it to be this quaint/romantic/upscale restaurant mainly for couples. The service was excellent though and... More

Upon arrival, we were greeted by our attentive and helpful server. We were also poured our drinks and given complimentary brushetta. Later, we also received complimentary flat bread with delicious...
