Description: Since 1983 La Dolce Vita Centro has been consistently rated as one of the top restaurants in Cancun, serving fresh seafood and homemade pasta, owned and operated by Tim Savio and Juan J. Casal. Dolce Vita means "Sweet Life" in Italian and that is how an evening here will make you feel. Our loyal clientele highly recommend the award winning signature dish Boquinete Dolce Vita, a local snapper topped with shrimp and mushrooms, enclosed in puff pastry, and served with lobster sauce. The service is refined and friendly, and dinner specials change daily to match the season. Ourdiverse wine list from around the world complements the dinner. La Dolce Vita is an ideal setting for groups, business functions, parties, weddings, rehearsal dinners and other special events. Our events coordinator can arrange a special menu for your party.

“Our Cancun Fav”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

This is the one place we always return to, and we have been returning to Cancun for over 25 years. The cuisine is exceptional. The service is first rate from the same experienced, friendly and efficient staff who have worked together for years. On the edge of downtown Cancun this small restaurant with its greenery covered front windows is a cool and calm art filled respite from the busy city. An "amuse bouche" and after dinner liqueur come with the meal for a special start and a great finish. This is how fine dining should be.

“Definitely try this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Nothing but good to say about this place. It is very cute and cozy. The menu has a nice variety and the food is outstanding. Staff are very attentive. The way they kept bringing the food, you felt like you really were in Italy.

“Absolutely brilliant!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

My boyfriend and I visited La Dolce Vita on the last night of our holiday. We thought we would try somewhere that looked nice and classy, a change from in the resort. The welcoming we received was lovely, everyone was so nice and very professional. The food was magnificent..I am a very fussy eater and I loved it! (you will too). The service was absolutely brilliant and after our meal we were even walked to the bus stop by a member of staff with a whistle, torch and a stop sign. I certainly recommend this restaurant and if we are ever back in Cancun, we will definitely be returning. 10/10!!

“Cancun Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

We visited twice during our holiday on both occasions both food and service were excellent. The menu is extensive the produce fresh and the flavours beyond compare. We both love italian food and have visited Italy numerous times and this is a gem in downtown Cancun and you should definitely visit.

“Hidden Treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

We have traveled to Cancun for over 15 years. The La Dolce Vita is one of our favorite resturants. Since the hotel strip has gotten so expensive we have visited here more every year. The staff is excellant +, they could not be more accomadating or friendly. The only trouble with the food is that it is so good, you eat too much. This is one of the true Mexican resturants that makes it so much fun in Cancun.
