We have been coming to Anguilla for the last 6 years. Our first visit was 17 years ago and after about a 10 year hiatus we returned and can't stay away. We ventured to Dolce Vita with 2 other couples about 6 years ago and have loved it ever since. When we arrive on the island it is our first... More

We returned to Dolce Vita and were rewarded with another good meal. The restaurant sits on he beach at Sandy Ground and is a nice setting for dinner. Being an Italian restaurant the pasta dishes are great. My wife really enjoyed her Fettuccine Alla Bolognese. I had the whole grilled Snapper which they deboned for me. It was also very... More

I think this place is a litrle overrated. Food is only so so and a bit expensive for what you get. Try to side outside which is very nice. This place is somewhat typical of island restaurants. Very expensive and not food as good as you can get at home.

This place is off the beat and path but has a great atmosphere, the food was amazing and the service was superb. The appetizers alone would have been completely satisfying but the dinner entrees were fantastic. Great place if you are craving a wonderful meal.

Great food and good service. The owner stops by your table to make sure you had a good dining experience. The service was very good. I had the ravioli and it was very fresh and homemade noodles. The Caesar salad is excellent! They put lots of fresh parmesan cheese in it and the lettuce was crispy. I would definitely go... More

Food was really good but if it's hot, ask for a seat under the fan. I was under a light and it was so hot it was uncomfortable. Be sure to ask for a seat by the beach on the deck. Gnocchi was fantastic.

The chef will come out and talk to you how he makes those superscrouncious gnocchi. The view at sunset is something that makes you know for sure that God stopped there for dinner!

We were recommended to come here by the Concierge at the Four Seasons. It is a bit away from the hotel so be prepared to pay if you're taking a taxi. We started with sparkling water and cocktails. We split a salad and appetizer and both ordered homemade pasta entrees. I ordered the spinach and ricotta ravioli in a marinara... More

My wife and I came to Anguilla for the first time with our friends for their 25th anniversary. We go grocery shopping one day and ask a very kind gentleman where a certain wine was. He tells us and we talk a bit and find out he is part owner of this Italian restaurant, Dolce Vita. His name was Abbi.... More
