“Disappointing”
Reviewed January 22, 2014 via mobile

All the hype for this restaurant is totally unwarranted. It does have a nice patio setting, however, the ambiance, food and service compares only to a "family restaurant" at best. Children running all over the restaurant relates to me that this restaurant caters to anyone as long as the customers pay the outrageous prices. In short, not what you would class as a "High Class" Restaurant. The service was almost non-existent, and we were totally ignored by the GM greeting tables. After almost 1 hour we decided to leave. Should never have waited this long to get some kind of service.

“Best tuna ceviche ever”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

Tired travelers, we found ourselves on the patio. Both meals were authentically italian, with the ceviche outstanding. Mid range expensive. Kids on the patio ran wild into the plaza which was too loud for our taste, but at least not by our table.

Wow, another great meal at La Dolce Vita. This is becoming one of our favorite places. The service was outstanding and the meal prices very reasonable. Seating outside is always nice. Place was packed, don't forget to make a reservation!
