I have to say, I've been to Italy and this place rivals some great places I've been to there. The owners are incredible people with years of experience and extremely entertaining. The food is amazing and the atmosphere can't get better, it's on the beach and every seat has an ocean view. Even better, at night it's a great place... More

Having said that I'm italian, I think Dolce Vita has room for improvement... The food is fresh, but nothing to do compared to a good italian original restaurant. I had spaghetti "allo scoglio": the pasta was not "al dente" and the tomato sauce "marinara" (not existing in Italy, by the way) was covering the flavour of the sea food. At... More

Dolce Vita is known around the island and is some of the best food around. Been going there ever since it opened years ago and get something different almost every time and it's always fantastic!

Best Italian food in the caribbean! Gnocchi was hand made and just melted in your mouth! Staff was very friendly and fast! Atmosphere was great! Right on the beach with a great breeze. Also had the lasagna and it was killer!

My hotel suggested we try Dolce Vita. The food was unreal. The service was perfect. The atmosphere was relaxing. I would go back again in a heart beat. The lobster pasta and grilled red snapper we cooked to perfection.

We wanted to see Sprocka and tried to get into AXA Seafood House, but they had no openings, so we went to Dolce Vita and were not disappointed. Their bread with the olive oil and their own balsamic vinegar is so good. I have a bottle of that Dolce Vita balsamic vinegar at home and it is a treasured reminder... More

I have traveled to Anguilla to many times, but had never been to Dolce Vita... boy was I missing out!! The food at Dolce Vita is AMAZING. The gnocchi and lasagna are as good as any I've had in Italy. The pizza was beyond amazing. The Crayfish pasta was phenomenal. On top of the fantastic food and amazing service, the... More

We always dine here when in Anguilla. The owner is always friendly and informative. The food is authentic and excellent. Service is friendly and well paced. It is located right on the beach in Sandy ground so after dinner you can walk to various bars in the area. Sometimes difficult to find a parking spot but you will find one.....be... More

We were somewhat underwhelmed with Dolce Vita this year. The food was OK - nothing special. I had the lobster special pasta and I can't say it was better than ok. My daughter had the risotto and she left about half. My husband's fish was overcooked and untidily filleted. We perused the wine list and chose a bottle, when my... More

We tried Dolce Vita for the first time this trip to Anguilla, our 9th. We haven't really explored Italian on the island as it isn't our natural go to for humid, sultry night time dining but we'd heard great things and wanted to try anew place. Previously we've eaten at Italia on the Cuisinart property a couple of times. The... More
