Tiny, cosy Italian restaurant next to the beach. Best stone oven pizza ever south of Conil, my favorite dish: Atún rojo de almadraba brace - a perfectly grilled tuna steak! Very friendly service crew. We'll come back soon!

Had lunch on two occasions and both were superb. The salads and pizza are just stunning washed down with some of the best rosado we have tasted. The tapa of crumbled Parmesan drizzled with olive oil should not be missed.

My husband & I celebrated his birthday here, sharing a hot salami pizza and carbonara. Both were delicious; especially the pizza which had a very crispy light base. The staff are very friendly. We had a few wines and beers and the bill was only €35. Would definitely recommend. Very laid back restaurant, not starchy - so don't expect table... More

What a welcoming staff! They came to the table and showed us the fresh meat. I ordered the grilled Entrecote and it tasted amazing! My Partner chose the pizza which was copious and excellent. The quality of their products is very good which is probably why the prices are above the region's average, but toaly Worth every cent!

This restaurant was a nice change away from the typical Spanish food we had been eating for some time. The pizzas served at La Dolce Vita were very good. Certainly a recommended place when you're in El Palmar.

We went for lunch after spending a morning on the beach. When we arrived we were warned that the oven wasn't warm yet, but that it would only take about 15 minutes, which turned out to be more like an hour... But we were in no hurry, and when the food did arrive it was really good. The kids had... More

Bar those that resulted in food poisoning, probably the worst restaurant experience of my life. On arrival, were told that outside table wait-time was 1 hour and inside was immediate. We duly went inside. Initial impressions were good; the Pizza oven was fired up and as Pizzas probably take about 3 minutes to cook, we were optimistic that we would... More

We stayed in El Palmar during the winter and the restaurant was only open on weekends. We went for pizza which was very good. Good atmosphere and friendly staff. Would have returned during the week had it been open.

Overall nice. Went out of season but they were still very friendly and attentive. Brought some nice olives and breads to start which was unexpected. Cool venue. Cool staff. Pizzas were good but a little under cooked for my liking but then that is personal preference. Worth it but not as cheap as some of the local tapas in other... More
