The pasta as well as the fish dishes were nice Italian fare. It was appealing that the items were prepared fresh. We almost did not get fish dishes because there was confusion about what the local catch had made available. There was an extensive wine list.

I made a reservation for 8pm around 4pm that day - good thing I did, because the place was packed. The place was short staffed that night (somebody called in sick, etc), but the service was still decent - the waiter worked his tail off to accomplish that. My wife and I started off with the antipasto misto - Italian... More

we stopped here late night for a pizza and took it back to our hotel. The pizza was good and was a great option since it was late and there weren't a lot of places open

La Dolce Vita is the Real Deal, serving up some of the best pasta I've ever had...a true "foodie" experience. Seated right before a party of 25 arrived, and afraid that I would be lost in the shuffle, I had an amazing meal and received excellent service. The waitstaff needed no excuses and handled my order perfectly.

Do no not pass this restaurant up during your stay in Placencia, you will not be disappointed. No only did we eat here once but we went back the next night. I am allergic to gluten so they accommodated me with gluten free noodles (rice noodles). Our dishes were amazing, we went in as group of 8 people and they... More

We had a "going away dinner" at La Dolce Vita and are pleased that this was where we chose to have it! The venue itself is upscale with a modern touch blended with Caribbean colors. Very nice indeed. As pleasant as the building is, it pales in comparison to the food, and the service. We were about 8 for dinner... More

We really enjoyed our meal here. They provide yummy focaccia bread with oil and vinegar. I had gnocci was really good in a cream sauce and my boyfriend had chicken parmesan I believe. He thought his was amazing. Mine was really good too. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is I wished there was some variety... More

We were lucky enough to be on a Moorings Crewed Charter from March 8-13. Even more lucky that the proprietor of La Dolce Vita accompanied us as chef! Chef Simone DeAngelis owns and operates one of Placencia's best restaurants according to TripAdvisor reviewers and I believe it because he dazzled us with homemade lasagna and tiramisu, fresh fish prepared several...
