I was surprised at how good and reasonably priced the food was. During our stay we visited La Dolce Vita twice and had a pizza, calzone, and 2 different pasta dishes... More

We were surprised at the excellent value and good service from such a prominent location on the malecon. We even enjoyed being serenaded by the musicians. Tasty Italian food. It was very busy but we managed to get a table.

My wife, a brother, and I visited Angelos in November on a Tuesday evening, and the place was very busy. Nevertheless, we were able to quickly get a table on the second floor, where ceiling fans were whirring and appreciated since it was very humid and the restaurant is open to the outside. We were quickly greeted by a waiter... More

Great food, attentive service and a really good place for couples and families. Get a table on the second level overlooking the Malecon and take your time. The appetizers , entrees and desserts are all excellent and a terrific sellection, topped of with a nice cappuccino. Enjoy people watching on the Malecon while you enjoy one of the better meals...
