I have been to this restaurant several times over the year and I have always enjoyed both the food and the atmosphere. Returning to Cayman this year, Dolce Vita was on my 'to do' list. What happen to this place?... The service, the food, all went wrong....what a disapointment!

We had six o clock reservations to celebrate a dear friend's birthday HERE..... We arrived and the place was closed !!!! No note on the door, nothing!! We scrambled to look for another place to celebrate and found Ragazzi's down the street a bit, and it was great. We would have appreciated a note on the door to the restaurant... More

During recent visits in 2014 and 2015, , we dined here several times each trip. Superb food and a great view are the norm. The Chef runs a lovely establishment , and we really enjoy the cuisine. Last time I told Chef that I adore Carbonara , and he said he would make it for me in a few days.... More

We really enjoyed this Italian restaurant while we looked out onto the bay from our outside deck seating. We had some great seafood pasta specials but the highlight was the gnocchi Regina which was a sauce that we never had before. We also had two delightful desserts, a chocolate strawberry cake and the La DolceVita special. All recommended.

This once was one of our favorite harbor view restaurants with great food and nice sunsets. Tonight's visit was a disaster. They were out of most of the wines we wanted, out of Conch fritters, and the lemon drop Martini was disgusting. Asked the barmaid what she put in the drink and she said something I do know what. No... More

We have eaten all over the world. The pasta here was the lightest and most delicious we have had. Friends had recommended this place to us and told us that the ambience was ok but that the food was fabulous. We had breathtaking weather and a beautiful sunset on the veranda. A bottle of Italian wine and the evening could... More

La Dolce Vita has been our favorite restaurant on Grand Cayman. Terrific food and lovely location overlooking the ocean. This time location was still great but meal was mediocre at best. I had sea bass and my partner had snapper. Both were coked to perfection but sauce and accompanying meal was very bland. Maybe it was a one time event.... More

I was craving real tomato sauce in a pasta dish. Have been away from that type of food for 6 weeks. Anyway, ordered a pasta dish. It was very good, but not the true tomato flavor I was looking for. The location was nice, right on the shore in Georgetown. Servers were very friendly. But expensive if you just want... More
