We have enjoyed this spot many times, and it never disappoints. Located on the Malecon (bit of a tourist spot for me) the food, views and staff are excellent. Pizza to pasta it is always good.

The location and food were great. BUT... We ordered a "fresh fish in white wine sauce" for $146. When the check came they counted it as $188 dish. When I pointed out the difference the waiter said it's because they actually brought us a very fresh fish, so it's more expensive than "not so fresh fish" in the origami menu..... More

La Dolce Vita is a MUST GO TO place when visiting Vallarta. It is my favorite spot to go to for dinner, and we usually make 2 or 3 trips whenever we are in town. It is located right on the Malecon and is an easy walk from wherever you may be starting on the Malecon. There is almost never... More

This place is just the best place to eat if you are looking for italian food dinner, you have to make a reservation because the place is always full and that tells you how greaat it is. The waiters are very attentive and the service is great, you definetly have to go and taste the food when visit Puerto Vallarta.

We loved La Dolce Vita right on the Boardwalk. The food and service were both exceptional. We liked it so much we went back when we found ourselves stuck in PV for an extra couple of days due to a snowstorm in Denver that caused our flights to be cancelled! Not a bad place to be stuck for a couple... More

We ate here one night. Not sure where I picked up a bug, but I was sick (intestinal) for the rest of our trip. Careful eating raw fruits and veggies that are not peeled. We ate a lot of salsa everywhere for the first few days, and then I ate nothing for the last 4 days. Not sure what restaurant... More
