Best Italian in Vallarta!

This place is very good! It is real good Italian food! The waiters are all very nice and funny and they will do their best to make anything you desire! Definitely recommend to anyone wanting a REAL Italian dinner! There's no Olive Garden junk here!

My wife and I have been coming to Puerto Vallarata and Nuevo Vallarta for 20 years and have dined frequently at La Dolce Vita in Puerto Vallarta with never a complaint about the food or the service. Our experience in Nuevo Vallarta has generally been very positive but a recent experience belied our opinion of the Nuevo location. We dropped... More

The owner is always personally there to greet us and we ate there 3 times in our week vacation. The carpacio appetizer is amazing and my favorite pizza in the whole world is their Diavola. Friendly staff, great food, very clean.

We walked in without reservations and got seated in a couple minutes. The ladies had margaritas made with Don Julio Blanco and they were very good. I had a glass of the cab/shirah blend and that was good too. I ordered the Captaine wood fired pizza and was surprised by how big it was, used to wood fired pizzas in... More

The food is excellent. Service is very good and like the atmosphere. I think it needs some lower priced wines. The wine list is a little pricey. It is a little on the higher end costs for families. They need some lower prices for large families.

La Dolce Vita is one of the best restaurants in nuevo vallarta. Excellent pasta good pizza and a very attractive outdoor patio setting. Service was top notch and we had no complaints. In fact we are going back to celebrate the end of two wonderful weeks in nuevo.

The food was excellent, we had veal Milanese (very tender), mahi mahi in tomato sauce with olives (very flavourful) and shrimp do limone, very nice. The service was superb, and very child friendly. However, we sat outside by the traffic circle. Far too loud, and the car lights were distracting. We noted the inside searing was loud (but enjoyed by... More
