i've been to cabo many times and have never dined here. this particular trip, however, everyone at our hotel raved about la dolce, claiming you can never get in, referring to it as the best restaurant in cabo. from ny, i usually don't go to italian restaurants because i only consider a few of them outstanding and authentic, so my husband thought it odd that i would consider trying one in mexico. on our last night, wanting to try somewhere new and special, we took a gamble and walked by. we asked if they could take us for dinner (around 7p on a quiet tuesday in cabo) and if we could sit outside (another recommendation). as it turns out, the red-velvet rope/can't get in wasn't in effect this particular evening, and we were seated outside, right away.
my confusion - is this really the restaurant everyone considers 'the best'? we started off with a margarita (average), had asparagus wrapped in prosciutto app (average, but very good), i had the grilled mahi mahi and my husband had grilled salmon over pasta. all very average. the only positive thing we could think of was that the price for dinner was relatively 'average', and it was a decent meal for two for under $75. other than that, i may try it again on my next cabo visit, but wouldn't be disappointed if i can't score a reservation.

Thank you for sharing your opinion and your review.
First and foremost, I feel that is very important to clarify the use of the ¨red velvet can´t get in rope¨During the Xmas and New Years vacation for there is and overwhelming amount of traveler/vacationers during these time and long time clients of ours (most of them from New York) needless to say, we put the rope there in order to provide better service and somewhat a bit of privacy to the clients seating in the terrace. I understand that it may look a bit arrogant, but it is just for the better good of all, specially when you have people trying to get in right away and making preasure by standing next to the already seated customers.
Second. Our reviews,word of mouth recommendations and long time faithfull clients from all walks of life speak for themselves, so I do not understand what your confused about. Specially when you say that the Sparragus App was¨average but preaty good¨ now Iám confused!LOL
It´s all good my friend. Please come in next time your in Cabo, on your way in ask for Stefano and I personally will make sure that on your way out, you will have fully understood what we are all about. I´ll even put out the red carpet for you.!!!
