Lobster

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!

New York quality Italian right in Sandy Ground. The gnocci and lasagne were superb and could rival anything we've had in NYC. The servers were great and the location can't be beat as it's steps away from the water and bars in Sandy Ground. Would highly recommend when in Anguilla.

My husband and I have been to Anguilla 5 times now, but this was our first time at Dolce Vita. I don't know why it took so long! A beautiful view of the water/sunset on Sandy Ground, and very friendly staff help to make this a wonderful dining experience. They make their own balsamic vinegar at DV, which is as... More

I loved the food but it was one of the more expensive places on the island and certainly Sandy Ground. Don't let that stop you though as the dinner was great and be sure to get reservations.
