“The best dinner so far in Placencia!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

We were told to go to this place for dinner by some friends. They raved about it and even though it's location is nothing to be thrilled about, the food was absolutely spectacular! The service was just as good. We told Simone, the owner/chef that we would tell others to try other restaurants first before eating at his establishment because once you eat at La Dolce Vita you won't even want to try anything else! Trying wonderful! Go there if you're hungry and want one of the best meals of your life!

“Magnifico!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Simone the proprietor and Chef exceeded our expectations when a group of 11 stormed his establishment (with reservations). Half the crowd just said "feed us" and that he did! Exceptional dining experience. We all had order envy so had to return for a second round a couple of days later :).

“LOOOOVED IT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

I've lived in placencia for a year now and just experienced dolce vita for the first time. My parents came to visit and wanted to try it. The food was so delicious we went back a second time during their visit. The food and wine were amazing! Tony, the waiter was very kind and Simone, the owner and chef was absolutely great. Will make it a regular dinner place from now on. It's a must to eat at while here.

“The kids loved it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

Yummy Italian, but lacking of seafood on the menu... which the kids greatly appreciated. On a sunny day, wait 'til sunset to go as it can get warm inside.

“avgerage food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

not the italian i was hoping for, so for the price I was disappointed, Clean and friendly, so no issues there, but i felt the food lacked taste and was a bit bland, still I would try them again, maybe I just was there on an off nite
