“Italian food in Belize? Yes!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

We were a family of 11, ranging in age from 8-70, and La Dolce Vita was suggested to us halfway thru our 9 day stay in Placencia. We felt a little strange going out for Italian, but boy are we glad we did. The owner/chef himself took our order, made suggestions, and made sure each child was getting exactly what they wanted. His family was at an adjacent table having a birthday celebration, and they included us in their champagne toast!

“Great Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

The chef / owner is delightful and selects the finest ingredients for his Italian food. He gets a large shipment of items from Italy once a year. Try the tiramisu for dessert. It was delicious!
