Delicious Again

We have been to Anguilla several times and we normally dine here. It was excellent again. I had one of the daily specials of lobster on linguini pasta. They let you choose the sauce and I had garlic wine. It was very good and there was a large amount of lobster chucks in the pasta (much more than I... read more

This is one of our favorite restaurants on Anguilla. We went on Tuesday night and it was packed. We started with the special app which was Burrata with prosciutto, outstanding! My wife started with the gnocchi in the Gorgonzola sauce, this is a dish we dream about all year. For dinner I had the cheese & spinach ravioli in a... More

Dolce Vita, what can I say that has not been said. The whole meal was number one of the trip, caprese salad, with a wonderful olive tapenade, lobster pasta, so good – chunks of lobster and linguini in that rich cream sauce, with fresh grated cheese on top. DH had the meatballs parmigiana appetizer and the Fettucine Bolognese, he made... More

For years, I've resisted Italian restaurants in the Caribbean, just thinking that heavy food didn't appeal to me in the warm weather. However, after hearing so many positive comments, I tried Dolce Vita, and now would never consider skipping it. There are many fine meat and seafood choices, so it's not all pasta. It is a great setting, direct waterfront... More

Heard good things about this place and had a great dinner. Lobster with linguine was delicious filled with abundant chunks of lobster in a light garlic laden sauce. Good Italian wines reasonably priced. The owner lived in Italy for Around 18 years and learned well. Very personable as well

My wife and I saw rave reviews about Dolce Vita, but we left feeling the food was just average. My wife had a chicken parm meal that we often get better in any pizzaria in NYC. I had some broiled crayfish that was very good. All in all a somewhat average dining experience. Nice views.

First of all, they need visible signs on the road directing people to this restaurant, because you are going to be driving in the dark and hungry for dinner. The island is easy to navigate and you can't really get lost, we found it but not easily. The food was fine, it was good, but not phenomenal. It did not... More

We love this place. The food is always fresh with homemade pasta. They are so wonderful and welcoming. We have been going for years and always manage to go twice during our two week stay

We loved this restaurant so much we went twice in 7 days! Absolutely delicious....every dish! Lobster, Gnocchi Gorganzola, Veal Chop, amazing. Friday night live music was amazing and when we asked them to extend their evening, they didn't hesitate. Thank you All at Dolce Vida!
