Every single detail at this place is nice. The table settings, the mood, but most important, is delicious! Had dinner with my wife and kids, and every dish we ordered was a liitle bit more than we expected. About two weeks later my wife and I came, this time no kids so we had an excellent evening with its respective... More

We wanted a break from Mexican food and love Italian - after looking at the reviews on Trip Advisor we decided to try La Dolce Vita. It was very easy to get to on the bus from the hotel zone. The food was delicious, from the complimentary bruschetta, the soup and salads, every one of our entrees to a dessert... More

This place is our favourite place to go to every year when we visit Cancun. Sometimes we go twice in a week! Foods amazing and service is excellent. Waiters are very friendly and they always remember us every year when we show up there. A must go to restaurant, if you are in Cancun.

Had a nice dinner here - pretty dining room. Service was very good. Only thing to warn about is if you want the flaming desserts make sure you eat early enough, they will stop making them around closing time...

We found this restaurant while searching the internet. Yelp and Trip Advisor gave it good reviews. I have to agree. The food was delicious and the service superb. From beginning to end everything was great. They were able to accommodate a group of 19 people the following day. Thank you for the great experience!! San Diego, Ca was present :-)

Boyfriend and I visited this little gem on Saturday, November 19 based on a recommendation we received from a fellow traveler at the airport and the visit exceeded our expectations. We arrived without a reservation and they escorted us to a small table and offered us a glass of wine to enjoy during the 5 minute wait for our table.... More

We have always made La Dolce Vita a must when in Cancun. We were there last week (11/12/16) and are disappointed. The service was terrible (we had many different servers and none knew what he other had asked or done). We asked one of the servers what the specials were and he old us a couple. We asked another server... More

We decided to try this restaurant last night , first off I want to thank our taxi for actually waiting the time it took for us to have our dinner (at his insistence ) and bringing us back to our hotel . The restaurant was quaint but old , in need of some renovation , we were immediately seated and... More

Description
Since 1983 La Dolce Vita Centro has been consistently rated as one of the top restaurants in Cancun, serving fresh seafood and homemade pasta, owned and operated by Tim Savio and Juan J. Casal. Dolce Vita means "Sweet Life" in Italian and that is how an evening here will make you feel. Our loyal clientele highly recommend the award winning signature dish Boquinete Dolce Vita, a local snapper topped with shrimp and mushrooms, enclosed in puff pastry, and served with lobster sauce. The service is refined and friendly, and dinner specials change daily to match the season. Ourdiverse wine list from around the world complements the dinner. La Dolce Vita is an ideal setting for small groups, business functions, parties, rehearsal dinners and other special events. Dress code: Casual, no cut off shirtsleeves for gentlemen. Private parking and free valet parking service.
