Had the Spaghetti Amatriciana, and having been to Italy several times, one would be hard pressed to find a dish so well executed at the majority restaurants there, so it was a complete surprise to find this in Belize. Very nicely balanced, NOT too salty, and just spicy enough to my preferred taste, but what sent it way way over... More

What a delightful dining experience. For years we said we should try it. Recommended by a competitive restaurant, MoJo we tried it. We had half servings. Absolutely fantastic. Who could ever imagine an Italian restaurant like this in the Caribbean. Upstairs a half block away from the over hyped Rumfish, it is charming and with friendly service. A wow!

Linen tablecloths adorned with red and green napkins made the place a pleasant and charming atmosphere. The food, Ah! Yes! finally the food. We started with and shared... More

We had a delicious Christmas dinner at La Dolce Vita. I loved my Puttanesca with fresh snapper. Our server was nice. The owner was great and even brought out his home smoked bacon for us to see and enjoy the aroma. One of the best italian meals we have had in a long time let alone in Belize.

Italian food has always been one of our favorites and this spot is wonderful. I had the grilled scampi with pasta, a lovely spaghetti with a delightful tomato basil sauce. The plate was gorgeous, a work of art and it tasted as good as it looked. Ian had lime chicken with pasta, two large pieces of chicken breast with a... More
