Always fabulous

Dolce Vita is always at least a twice a week meal for us while on island. Abbi is the consummate host/owner.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful meal at this restaurant in January 2015. The outdoor seating was delightful, the service was quite good and the food was delicious. I highly recommend the crayfish!

A pleasant surprise and an enjoyable family meal. Great setting by the water, good wine choices and good food. Although the desserts looked fantastic we were too full to partake.

We went to DolceVita based on reputation and location... What a disappointment! We both had basil gnocchi and it was the worse gnocchi we ever had, they were so mushy and soft it was nearly like eating some mash potatoes. Also they were in a red tomato sauce that was hiding all taste: we didn't taste any basil in the... More

The gnocchi are particularly wonderful, both as an appetizer or a main course. Had the risotto this year and it was great as well. When I called for reservation, the owner said they were very booked but would work us in - asked however that we be patient as service might be slower due to full house. I appreciated him... More

We have been coming to Anguilla for many years. So many fabulous restaurants. We had a very special occasion where we were bringing 3 friends & chose DolceVita based on its reputation. We called 9 days ahead & booked a front table, even telling them who our guests were & how important the evening was to us. We had also... More

Lobster Fettuccine, Lasagna and Caesar Salad. Imagine the best meal you have had ... now triple it. That`s the Dolce Vita experience. If Caesar had experienced this restaurant, he would have not walked into his assassination. Service and food is exemplary. Thank you Jeanette. We will see you next Monday.

No trip would be complete without at least one visit to Dolce Vita. The setting is lovely, right on the beach with a wonderful sunset view of the harbor. The food is outstanding, fresh made pasta and fresh caught fish. Abbi, Christopher and Sandra always make us feel right at home. We love the lobster pasta, Caesar salad, and Branzino,... More

The menu has not changed since we first visited Dolce Vita, but still the greatest food for the money.

Best dinner on the island, so needed to go back 2 days later and do it again. Abi and his staff are amazing.
