Well I personally love it

I thought the food was good. We went there twice on a 3 week vaca. The pizza is top top of the line and the pasta was amazing. We stick to the same things so we got those both times. The servers were ok and the host was great. I thought it was good and we will be back. And... read more

La Dolce Vita is a staple if you are in the NV area. The pizza and pasta are delicious. Great selection of wine. The service is always wonderful and the garden is a beautiful place to sit. Never disappointed here!

We were there 3 times during our 6-weeks vacation in Nuevo Vallarta! Absolutely exquisite food. Large variety of choices on the menu. Very clean restaurant. Excellent service from Eduardo Pilas. I had the fettucini ceasar (two times!) and the most succulent Mahi Mahi filet ever, served in a light almond, lemon and garlic sauce, and salad. When I will return... More

Had the "Lombardi" pizza, what a joke, the sausage, mushroom, graganzola cheese, guess what the sausage was sliced hot dog, so the pizza was complete bust. The place is nicely decorated with patios front and back and tables inside also, service was attentive and prompt, can't anticipate what other compromises they attempt with other dishes. Would not recommend this establishment... More

Had a late dinner here with some Mexican friends two nights ago. It was our first visit and overall the experience was very positive. Its a large place with both indoor and two outside eating areas. Service was friendly although a bit erratic. The menu is huge and there are always, it seems, good specials. For a group of five... More

We attended a birthday party here with 16 people. The food was delicious! No one complained about what they ordered - many ordered the Maui Maui special and thought it was great. The service was good - there was one waiter for the group and sometimes things were forgotten but really overall the service was good. All the tabs were... More

Usually some restaurants do not like to deviate from the menu. This time I asked Luca to create my seafood pasta using fresh pappardelle pasta. The seafood medley consisted of shrimp, mussels, clams, squid and octopus and it was very very good. My wife opted for the pappardelle with porcini and Italian sausage another great dish. The tagliata (NY) was... More

Had a chance to eat at La Dolce Vita Nuevo Vallarta tonight and thoroughly enjoyed. We have been coming to Nuevo Vallarta for 20 years, and always try to visit different restaurants, but after coming here, I am sure we will make sure it is one we return to. The service was superior, the menu had something for everyone, and... More
