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.

“Best Italian Food in Cancun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2012

We went to this restaurant based on the reviews on TripAdvisor and I have to say that it was excellent.

All the items we orders were delicious and fresh, the spice was just perfect, not too much or too little. The chef kept sending us different samplers for us to try, after we finished our appetizers, we were actually quite full.

Definitely try the ceviches, the chocolate dipped orange and the chocolate mousse

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2012

The food was decent ( had capelini) and the atmosphere at the lagoon view balcony was excellent! I can picture myself coming back here next time I visit to Cancun.

“My favorite Cancun restaurant for 30 years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2012

I have been coming to Cancun most every year for the past 30 years. My trip is not complete without a visit to LaDolceVita. Food is excellent and the warm,welcoming staff provide outstanding service. Prices are very reasonable for the quality and presentations.
