The food and the service was excellent. This is a great experience for anyone visiting Cancun. You would expect to pay way more in the United States for this quality of service and food. A true value of fine dining

We took the bus and walked a little bit to get here. Food was excellent for Italian food in Mexico. Service was also really good. If you want to get away from the hotel zone for some good Italian this place will do the job

This restaurant is there from times ago. It is always the same quality service and good food. Service is classy and the prices are very good. This could be a small restaurant in Paris, Rome or NY

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.
