“Alway great!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

We've been eating at this restaurant a number of years, from when they were in their former location in Plaza Caracol. Always good, especially the pasta which is homemade. The atmosphere of the current location is intimate as you sit beneath lanterns on tiers of tables overlooking the lagoon. Perfect!

“Excellent Italian on Hotel Strip”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Was told by a few friends to try La Dolce Vita, but my husband and I didn't feel like cabbing it to the main town. Savio's ended up being down the block from our hotel, so we decided to try it. One of our favorite meals during our vacation! Stopped by during lunchtime to make a reservation for the same evening. We were able to get a seat on the dock- not the balcony, but the small boat dock in the very front. They only have two seaters, but I highly recommend if you are able to get one them. We watched an alligator swim nearby and watched the sun set. The wine list is nice, but don’t expect much help choosing a wine unless you ask the owner. My husband and I shared the mozzarella sticks and Savio’s shrimp wrapped in prosciutto and provolone- both were fabulous! For dinner I had the small seafood linguine. It was very good, but I could have done without the lumps of fish and just had the shell fish. My husband enjoyed the small portion of lasagna. We were stuffed, but decided to share the almond cake, again, delicious! Prices are reasonable for the quality of food and beautiful atmosphere. Reservations are suggested if you want to sit on the balcony or dock.

It's also one of those nice restaurants where you order each course at a time, which can make for a longer dinner. You can order all at once, just be sure to speak up!

“Great sunset and dinner for our family!”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

We took our family of 5 (15, 13, and 11) there for a sunset dinner and were not disappointed. We had a great table out on the deck, and the food and service were fantastic. Additionally, the pricing was very reasonable compared to "on property" restaurants. We highly recommend this restaurant.
