I am Italian and I think Dolce Vita is really a top Italian restaurant. Excellent food even if a bit expensive . Try linguine alla diavola (pasta with jumbo shrimps, which are my favorite). We went with my 8y girl daughter that was not feeling good and they made a plain risotto with Parmesan that was excellent. Beautiful location just... More

We started our Anguilla holiday by enjoying dinner at Dolce Vita and were not disappointed. My husband and I enjoyed our meal; however, they need to install more powerful fans. It was so unbearably hot at our table with absolutely no air movement that we skipped dessert to cool off. 10 feet outside the restaurant the temperature must have been... More

My hubby and I had one of our most memorable meals at this very special trattoria. Everything tasted sublime...made with love from true Italian heritage. My absolute favorite was the eggplant appetizer. It just oozed with melted cheese, a fabulous marinara sauce and tender eggplant. We shared a couple of salads, both dressed perfectly and very fresh, shared the grilled... More

From the eggplant appetizer, to the meatballs, the lasagna, the chicken parmesan, and caesar salad...THE BEST, worldwide! These people know their Italian food. The sauce is amazing. The eggplant appetizer was our favorite, sorry we did not have time to take a photo. It was that good! The lasagna was delicious and the noodles had a unique texture which really... More

Been to Anguilla multiple times, but never wanted to have Italian you can get anywhere else... man was I wrong. My wife and I agreed, one of the best meals either of us has had. I've been to Italy 15+ times and thesis easily one of the best meals I've had. The gnocchi was incredible! Definitely worth a visit here... More

Great food and entertainment on our visit. Being right next to the water makes for a guaranteed romantic night. Huge portions and great service. Only suggestion would be to add some lights in the parking lot please!

Dolce Vita is another place we never miss. It has it all, excellent food, service and setting and of course Abi, the consummate host. I like to go during the week when it is not as busy, Fridays Sprocka plays, and it is always packed. I had never had a Buratta salad until I had it at Cove Castles and... More

My wife and I ate at Dolce Vita in June, 2016 and we were very disappointed in the service and value. The waitress was non-attentive. The restaurant seemed to focus on parties of 6-8 rather than the parties of 2-3. I did not intend to pay $169.00 for a meal and to be treated like I was second rate. The... More

We've been here several times and always enjoyed an excellent meal. We love that the restaurant is right on the beach and you can walk down to the water and back to your table! We have tried several dishes and everything is great! The lasagna is wonderful and their tiramisu divine! You won't be disappointed.
