Best Restaurant in town

Dolce vita is a nice place to visit with your family. Food is delicious, and the restaurant is very nice. Lasagna is delicous also the pizza and the salad.

Went to this restaurant as we were into the Hampton Inn late and wanted something quick to eat. Lighting in restaurant was so low we could not read menu and unfortunately we could not get a good explanation of menu but we didn't speak Spanish. Food was very good quality but service was slow and I think since we didn't... More

if you find yourself in Tampico and are craving for a truly italian dish, head for one of La Dolce Vita's two locations... one is across the street from the airport and another one on Avenida Universidad... If you don't see anything on the menu that catches your fancy, worry not... just instruct the waiter about your dish and he/she... More

Very nice restaurant, prices affordable and the ToGo service is fine and you can select everything from the Menu.

Had dinner here while staying at the adjacent hotel. Food was simply 'ok', service was not. Took a while to find someone to seat us and the servers tended to wander off or avoid eye contact when we tried to flag them down. The lighting was also ridiculously dim which made reading the reallllly long menu a chore.

I just came back from dinner at La Dolce Vita, which was a short 25 yard walk back to my hotel, the Hampton Inn Aeropuerto Tampico. I was pleasantly surprised. This is a very nice restaurant, with a great atmosphere, and in my opinion, impecable service. I never had to try to find my waiter or flag someone down. They... More

I come to Tampico often, and stay at the Hampton inn right next to this place. Really convenient. The food is great and the service is great. Definitely worth a try. I love the carpaccio de manzo appetizer. Great! Everything else is awesome as well.

It's just the best Italian restaurant in Tampico, I haven't tried a dish that wasn't good. Both locations are very nice and on important avenues. The one on Ayuntamiento avenue is more cozy, the one next to Hampton Inn is more recent and has a bar too. It's a bit pricey but worth it. Don't miss the Insalata al pastore... More

La Dolce is next door to the Hampton Inn. The tabel cloths are white, the service is good, and the food is pleasant. Try the calamari
