Very, very good Italian food!

We were on a Seabourn cruise and stopped in Anguilla for the day. It is an awesome island and we decided to make Dolce Vita our lunch spot. Initially, I was concerned when we arrived as we were the only patrons for lunch. However, once we sat down, we were very glad that we did. The pasta and... read more

Although Italy has quite a beautiful coastline, when I think of italian food a beachside location doesn't usually come to mind! However, in Anguilla, beachside seems to be the rule of thumb and Dolce Vita delivers both the Anguillan beachside atmosphere and excellent Italian food. I liked that the menu had a good variety of options and I settled on... More

We love Dolce Vita. We order the pasta dishes and they make a great steak. I think if you play to a restaurant's strengths, you will not be disappointed. If I want island food, this would not be on my list. But when I crave pasta, this is the place to be! We love being right on the beach...

Perfect location right on Sandy Ground. The food is the best. Don't miss the Gnocci with Gorganzola sauce! The lasagne is the best. Great service too.

The setting was beautiful. The service great. My husband had a veal chop and loved every bite of it. I had spaghetti bolognese and it was unbelievably great!

Recently, my husbands and I and 4 friends returned to Dolce Vita for dinner. We have never be been fond of the restaurant but the location is convenient, on the beach in Sandy Ground. Most everyone stuck with pasta dishes, but my husband and I split a Caesar Salad and a tuna tartare appetizer. The salad was tasteless, underdressed and... More

Our taxi driver recommended this Italian spot for dinner following our sunset sail. Though not expecting great Italian on an island, it was near perfect. We walked right in for reservations (big group of adults & kids). We were welcomed and seated immediately. Chef recommendations of gnocci and lasagna were spot-on. Delicious meals and great service. Wine list was extensive.... More

This was once again the best meal we had on the island. We made a reservation because last time we went they were busy and asked us if we had one. We got there around 6:00 and there was barely anyone there so we didn’t need it. People started showing up closer to 7:00 so if you go later, call... More

Dolce Vita is a wonderful, romantic restaurant right on the beach in Sandy Grove. From the moment we stepped into the restaurant it felt like you were home. The service was attentive and the weight staff aimed to please. And the food!!!!! I can not say enough about the food. The chef is talented. All the pastas are homemade and... More

Reading some of the other reviews, I can tell why we had a disappointing night at Dolce Vita, while others love it. The place was full of people who knew each other and the owner well and were having a wonderful time. We, on the other hand watched them receive prompt service and fawning attention from the owner while we... More
