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.

“La Dolce Vita”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Even though its located in Cancun Centro its well worth the trip. The food is consistently great and the service is the BEST in Cancun. All the Italian dishes are made from fresh ingredients. Don't waste your time going to any other Italian restaurant!

“Great Italian restaurant”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Highly recommend La Dolce Vita in Cancun. Food and service were first rate. The waiter was very attentive to our needs. We got to visit and talk with the owner. At the end, the owner shared a drink with us.

“Fantastic Anniversary Dinner”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

We and another couple went to La Dolce Vita during our anniversary trip to Cancun and were amazed. We started dinner with incredible appetizers so fresh and light worth considering just having appetizers (you have to have the calamari), but there is so much more. My wife had one of the best Osso Busco we have ever had while I and a friend had the most fantastic Calamari steak dinner while his wife had the salmon with dill sauce - again another amazing dish. The pasta side on three of the dishes was made from fresh homemade pasta - wow. Then came desert, our friends had the banana flamebe, while my wife had the lemonchello cream cheese and I had the truffle - both were incredible. The service was some of the best we have had at any restaurant regardless of type. All of this for a very reasonable price. Service, fine food, and they just could not stop finding ways to do more - take the bus or grab a cab, but just go.

“Excellent food and friendly staff”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

The food, the portions and the staff were ALL great. The bread that came with dinner was delicious, and the staff kept bringing it fresh from the oven. The pasta is made in-house and is great. The manager even brought us a free drink at the end of dinner. I highly recommend!
