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.

Someone at our hotel recommended la dolce vita and we were surprised when we first walked in. We weren't sure if we were in the right place, as it is very quaint (but clean and nicely set up). Immediately we were impressed with the service. Multiple employees were serving us and were very friendly and pleasant. The manager Juan wAs extremely friendly and fluent in English. Food was delicious and the prices were extremely reasonable - way better than at our own hotel. Very fresh food with lots of flavor and a great selection. Will recommend to all. Nice that you can do a reservation on open table, too

First when we sat at the table we were served these rehearsal appetizers (Free), after that we got the menus and we started ordering. The strawberry daiquiri was the best I got in our whole trip. Good starter salads, I had pizza and it tasted good as it should in Italian restaurant. After the meal we received free self made sweets and drink which a customer can freely choose from the drink cart that they bring near the table.
This restaurant is something you really want to get out for from the touristic hotel zone and head towards the downtown Cancun. They offer good food with better service than in the hotel zone.

We found this great spot last year on vacation and made a point of getting back again. Food is wonderful and staff, ambiance and service could not be better. Prices were very reasonable and I hope to be back again next year!
