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.

Food really good, service the best. Try whatever they suggest out of menu. They have a special dish every day. Really fair price and prices much lower than other good restaurants. We've been there twice this week. The owner and waiters make you feel really good.

One of my favorite restaurants in Cancun. I eat there at least three times a month. There are specials for luch, between 1:30 and 4:00 and the prices are great. Even when you have lunch or dinner and you choose not to have the lunch specials, the food is still VERY affordable. I highly recommend it!!! Mauricio

We live in Mexico, and we are not big fans of Cancun. But it has a big airport, so occasionaly we find ourselves here over night coming or going out of the country. Based on Trip Advisor reviews, we tried La Dolce Vita and were as impressed as others have been. Nice location and decor, wonderful food, and nice littel... More

Stop over for a 3 course dinner. A bit far from the main hotel zone though, it is worth for a detour. Friendly and helpful staff, good Italian food with a reasonable price. I would say this restaurant blew that four diamond Italian restaurant away. Yes, I was talking about the one in JW marriott.

My spouse and I ate dinner for the first time at La Dolce Vita and all I can say is WOW. The food and service was superb. By far one of the highlights of our trip to Cancun and the best meal we ate the entire trip. However, the real stand out was the service by Ramon. He went over... More

Thanks to the reviewers who rated this restaurant as the best of Cancún! My wife and I tried their specials of red snapper and duck and they were totally delicious, as was the quail paté we had as a free starter. There are plenty of Italian restaurants in Mexico, of course, but this was in a class of its own!... More

This was our second time to visit La Dolce Vita Centro. The first time was on our last trip to Cancun two years ago. The food is wonderful! Everyone in our party of eight was extremely pleased with their selections which included pizza, fettuccini alfredo, fettuccini carbonara, manicotti and a special seafood pasta. We enjoyed all of the complimentary extras... More
