Great Italian Food

Great Italian dishes. Hard to find good Italian food in Belize, but Dolce does deliver on that. Little hard to find, but well worth the visit.

This was our treat meal and it was completely worth it. We were a big group and were accommodated really well. The service staff are really friendly and are efficient with drinks and food. The food was incredible and the wine was even better! It's also air conditioned which is an added bonus.

Surprisingly authentic Italian - Chef came out and spoke to us -he's the real deal, importing many items from Italy when he returns home each year.

Absolute deliciousness!!! A little pricey but so good!! The owner/chef is awesome as well and even offered to cook something else for our soon if he didn't see something on the menu that he liked. He ended up ordering off the menu and loved it.

After having dinner for over a week in Belize we felt like Italian for a change. Unfortunately they do not serve pizza but we had pasta and fish instead and it was amazingly good. All flavoured perfectly to taste. Inside only but with ac very comfortable. No WiFi. Prices as indicated $$. Well done chef!

We went to this excellent Italian Restaurant with John and Lisa, the owners of "Lost Reef Resort&Hideaway" where we were staying at. They had told us that it was a treat for Italians (like them and ourselves) to be able to taste Chef Simone's entries. And they were not kidding... Simone and his wife personally prepare the specialties, with the... More

Food is great and Simone the owner is an incredible person! No matter how busy he will find time to visit personally. Always nice to have the owner and chef come to see how your experience was. Not to be missed!

The environment, the food and service was over the top! Came highly recommended and now we know why! It was fabulous! We've been here 4 times & never ate here... We try to get our seafood fill while here. Thought we can get Italian anywhere in the U.S. ... But this is fantastic! You must put this on your list... More
