Since 1983 La Dolce Vita Centro has been consistently rated as one of the top restaurants in Cancun, serving fresh seafood and homemade pasta, owned and operated by Tim Savio and Juan J. Casal. Dolce Vita means "Sweet Life" in Italian and that is how an evening here will make you feel. Our loyal clientele highly recommend the award winning signature dish Boquinete Dolce Vita, a local snapper topped with shrimp and mushrooms, enclosed in puff pastry, and served with lobster sauce. The service is refined and friendly, and dinner specials change daily to match the season. Ourdiverse wine list from around the world complements the dinner. La Dolce Vita is an ideal setting for groups, business functions, parties, weddings, rehearsal dinners and other special events. Our events coordinator can arrange a special menu for your party.

Service and food are amazing

We visited for our sons birthday, they took very special care of us, and brought out a special dessert after an amazing dinner. This was our favorite meal in Cancun and we will definitely go back. Great food, amazing wine and fantastic service!

Greeted at the door by the owner with warm hospitality. Quaint cafe atmosphere. Excellent wine list. The food is remarkable. From cocktails, to appetizers, to wine, dinner, dessert, and aperitif, we were taken well care of by the waiters and owner. Every aspect was detailed, complex but perfect in flavor, and on point. For a nice quiet meal outside the... More

My husband and I went to this little Italian restaurant based on the trip advisor reviews and were not disappointed! From the minute we walked in the staff was fantastic and started us off with complimentary bruschetta. Everything we had from our appetizer to the flaming banana desert was great! I'd highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to get... More

This restaurant is on Kulkulchan Blvd. just as you enter downtown Cancun. It is very simple to get to from the Hotel Zone. The old world atmosphere is wonderful and the service was some of the finest we have experienced in this city that loves to offer great service. The menu offers a tremendous variety of options from starters to... More

The place is very well lit and spacious. Food portions are adequate and some dishes come in entrée/main dish size options. They also gave us complimentary pâté and delicious garlic bread. Our 5-yearl-old arrived asleep so waiters put a bed together out of two chairs and provided him with a small pillow and a light blanket. A really nice place.

This restaurant is absolutely wonderful! If you're coming from the hotel zone, get the R2 bus and it stops very close to the restaurant, which will be on your right shortly after the roundabout in downtown Cancun. The service was impeccable, and they surprise you with several wonderful "extras" during your meal that are free. The lobster bisque was wonderful,... More

My husband and I dined here on tonight and it was probably the best dining experience I've had in a very long time! On a scale of 1-10, I would rate the taste of the food a 15! I usually carry around spices to put on the food when I go out, but this food was perfect! The customer service... More

You feel so at home, but you know you are eating out. The services and food is impecable and it has not changed since the day it opened the doors. It is decorated with a collection of paintings from the artist Cuitlahuac, who developed the technic of painting with Cancun' sand. It is a meeting place. On this occasion, I... More
