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

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

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...

Very good food , the best pasta we had in all of our travels. All ingredients are fresh and imported and the owner is a well trained Chef from Italy. Service is very friendly and they have an excellent wine list . If you are in Placencia Village , La Dolce Vita, is a MUST to visit.
