The chef / owner is delightful and selects the finest ingredients for his Italian food. He gets a large shipment of items from Italy once a year. Try the tiramisu for dessert. It was delicious!

My Husband and I spent the last 10 days vacationing in Placencia with our friends and when we stumbled upon La Dolce Vita, we were in pasta heaven! The food rivaled many of the meals we enjoyed in Italy and the Italian wine list was a wonderful change from the wines available in most of the other restaurants. The owner/chef... More

We LOVED this place -- the best Italian food I've had outside of Italy. A great Italian wine list and super friendly staff and owner. Their Antipasto Misto is a MUST! We found this place later in our trip, but agreed that is was the BEST place to eat in Placencia.

Atmosphere nice & friendly, but food did not meet our idea of good Italian food. It is probably very authentic, but......

From what we ate, I'd say the food is quite good, thou it was a little expensive for pasta. This family owned restaurant was charming ( the owner's little son served our drinks).

Our meal was very tasty and authentic. Took me a few minutes to wrap my mind around Italian food in Placencia, but we really enjoyed our meal. Service was good, we had a nice chat with the owner, and had a very pleasant evening. The restaurant caters to ex-pats and tourists, but the prices were reasonable (and actually a little... More
