Delicious, friendly and inexpensive

This is a casual, friendly, inexpensive and delicious place... Even something as common as a pizza can be a delicious and hearty seafood dish at a very affordable cost! In addition, service is friendly and fast. The kind of place you can visit several times during your stay in Viña, enjoy, and... read more

We had a great time at Dolce Vita, we ordered a medium pizza between us and that was more than enough. The service was exceptional, the waiter even gave us a guide book and told us useful information about the area. Would eat here again for sure as its the few places in the area where they have thin crust... More

I had lasagna and a bottle of wind. I was seated as soon as I entered the restaurant by a friendly hostess. The food was good and reasonable prices, but I am a lasagna fan, and it could have been a little better. I did eat most of eat, and would return again. Overall, I was quite pleased with my... More

There are not many restaurants in Vina del Mar that you truly feel comfortable due to careless attitudes of waiters. Here the ambience is clean and comfortable, food is Chilean Italian style though above average quality for what you get in the area. There is 1 thing that stands out here - probably the best service in town lead by... More

While looking for another restaurant that was recommended to us we found La Dolce and decided to have lunch there. So glad we did. The service was great and the food delicious. So many great items on the menu we couldn't decide so the waiter helped us and made excellent recommendations. Would eat there again if I was back in... More

Randomly found this place. We were a group of six and seated privately to the rear of the restaurant. The service was excellent and comprehensive. Great wine list and excellent food.

If you ever visited Italy and enjoyed the beautiful Italian food, you will probably disappointed at La Dolce Vita. It is not bad but it is not good either, that average Italian food you get when away from Italy. I would not recommend it, try at your own risk...

I have been coming regularly to Viña del Mar for many years. I never miss my visit to La Dolce Vita. Excellent and consistently good food and very friendly service. Olimpio, the owner, is originally from Schilpario, Italy. First came here with the Italian Ski team and ended up coming back permanently. During our February ATP Tennis Tournament, La Dolce... More

Been coming often there since we moved to Chile in 2012. Good pasta and pizzas, good service but a bit more expensive than other Italian restaurants
