We had great pasta: fetuccini Alfredo which was a good size portion and great taste, and Pasta with Crab, which was tasty and artfully presented, but I missed the chunks of crab meat. One of us ordered a pizza, which was very tasty and had a nice thin crust. Wine list is fine for Playas del Coco, they have some... More

Food is simply delicious, BEST STEAK in town. Soft fillet minion stakes cooked on a firestone right on your table, accompanied with grilled vegetables, guacamole and of course good red wine. Available also a great selection of typical costarican food and international plates. Recommended!!

We had a very tasty and filling pasta dish, nice cold beer, not cheap but not expensive. The service was good and friendly and the food is all made fresh to order.

We stayed at Playa de Las Palmas and ate several meals at La Dolce Vita. The food was great. The service was exceptional and the prices too good to be true.

Read all the great reviews, but I guess I missed something. Took the family out for a nice casual dinner. Place was maybe 1/4 full, it took 2 hours to finally eat. Ordered fish soup, kids had steak, grilled fish and I ordered pasta since it is Italian. One steak was bleeding, the grilled fish was drowned in sauce and... More

We have eaten here the last couple of nights. The service is excellent; the staff are very friendly, especially the hostess. She even caught up with us on our way out to ask if everything was alright. The meals came very quickly, and even included an appetizer which we didn't order...a pre-dinner tapa!! Last night I had the red snapper,... More

Ordered Beef Tenderloin with a Blue Cheese topping, one of the specials on the menu the night we visited. Had heard that beef in Costa Rica could be tough but this steak was tender and tasty. Meal came with vegetables and mashed potatoes cooked to perfection. Staff was friendly, service was slightly slow but all in all a good dinner... More
