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.

This place was a staple of Cancun dining. They have gone down in service and food quality. There are a lot of excellent restaurants in Cancun and to be average like this does not cut it for me. The staff was indifferent and almost rude. They need to step it up if they are going to survive with the new places coming.

Thank Shaun S

This was our first trip to La Dolce Vita. We relied heavily on trip advisor this time because we wanted to experience different sites and adventures on our own. Came across this place, and tried it out. We were not disappointed! The staff and owner made you feel as though it really was about you, the customer. Great food and just a must to go... Prices were about average for a family of 4. We spent a little over 100 American dollars, but got so many things. Greeted with free bruschetta that was amazing, then ordered pizza, 2 special pasta dishes, 4 salads, 6 soda drinks, a bread appetizer, carmaelized orange peels dipped in chocolate (free), and an after dinner drink (free)! Then to top it off, the waiter personally walked us across the main busy highway to catch a bus back to our hotel! Just impressive customer service and wonderfully flavorful food..
Don't miss this one!

Four ladies vacationing in Cancun wanted to get out of the rat race of the hotel zone and I found this restaurant on TripAdvisor (#3). The food was very good, the restaurant was very clean, and the attentive staff made up feel at home. I would recommend this restaurant to others!
