“The Best Gelato Ever!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

This is hands down the best ice cream I have ever eaten. Even better than in Rome!
Try mixing a few flavours together for a really decadent taste experience.
We tried not to go there every day but it was impossible. Do not miss this place.

“Best Italian I've had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014 via mobile

Went here with my girlfriend hoping for a unique, romantic, delicious dinner date, and we were both highly satisfied! Situated in a small second story area (right next to the village pharmacy) the restaurant makes you feel instantly cozy upon arrival. The complementary bread and oil dip was wonderful, the house wine did not disappoint, and my Gorgonzola gnocchi was out-of-this-world! My girlfriend ordered a seafood linguini which was also very good. Come to this restaurant hungry and leave happy.

“Pleasant visit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014 via mobile

We recently ate at Dolce Vita at the recommendation of another visitor. The Gorgonzola gnocchi was very good and the waitstaff attentive. The chef was taking orders and serving the food amidst his cooking! Poor guy. Everything was home made and worth another trip to further explore the menu.

“Nice change for the taste buds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

After eating so much creole fish, shrimp and other typical Belizean cuisine my wife and I decided to try La Dolce Vita for something different. It was so nice to have some good italian food, something different for our taste buds. The food was reasonably priced, decent sized portions and our server Tony was very friendly. The menu had quite a bit to choose from. This was one of the only places we went where they offer a coffee, cappuccino or espresso at the end of the meal. Something a coffee drinker really appreciates!

“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!
