Absolutely excellent, from the welcoming greeting to the service and the food. Wonderful!
Such a lovely place! The food was awesome and the staff was highly attentive.
On vacation in Cancun, so we gave this place a try. Everything was terrific. Complementary appetizer and dessert drinks made the experience perfect, but we loved everything else as well. The pasta and salad was fantastic. The wine options were versatile and we really enjoyed the cab sav we shared. Will absolutely be back!
My third the at La Dokce Vita and it was fantastic as usual. The service us really special. The pasta is homemade. It just melts in your mouth. I will go back everytime I come to Cancun.
Reasonably priced, creative menu, well stocked bar, convenient location. I am a dedicated Eggplant Parmigiana fan. La Dolce Vita only has Eggplant Parmigiana on the Appetizer Menu which was understandable when it arrived on the table. The eggplant is slowly and thoroughly baked that it is best consumed as a dip with the lovely grilled bread.
Wonderful food! Excellent service! A must stop for us every time we come to Cancun.
The restaurant's name says it...the good life. During our annual visits it feels like we're coming home. We're greeted by familiar faces of the staff and owner. The food is always excellent. We even got a carafe of English Breakfast iced tea when we orders iced tea! We split a salad and entree and splurged on crepe suzette...prepared table side with great care and flavor. We're already looking forward to our next visit.
We decided to revisit La Dolce Vita for our anniversary since it was my most memorable dining experience from my visit 18 years ago. It didn’t disappoint. We got lost on the way there and ended up being 30 minutes late for our reservation but that didn’t stop Juan from greeting us warmly and expressing his gratitude that we made it. He ushered us into a charming table and we were delighted by the appetizers and dinners we choose. At the end of our meal they surprised us with a delicious chocolate dessert for our anniversary. Im so glad we returned!
Every time we come to Cancun, we make sure we stop at La Dolce Vita at the southern edge of downtown Cancun - at least once. Prices are moderate for Cancun, but the service, ambiance, caring and food are not beatable anywhere else in the hotel zone. The owner has been there for longer than I care to remember and he remembers his clientele. Most impressive is that locals drop in after 9pm when most tourists are just finishing up their meals.
With so many hotels having switched to the all-inclusive format, most tourists don’t even think of venturing off site to eat (yes, it costs money you do not have to spend at your all-inclusive resort). However, the wine selection is great, the mixed drinks are wonderful, the specials are worth trying and the regular menu has a great mix of northern Italian cuisine. A couple of courses, wine or drinks and dessert generally comes to about $50 per person. LDV also throws in a couple of tasty starters or breads. If you have children, there is pizza and very understanding waiters and service people.
My third visit and I have never been disappointed. The amount of care and concern shown by the staff is fantastic. And the food is fabulous.
We have been coming here for years - food and service always top notch - the specialty touches were always a standout for them - disappointed they no longer offer the after dinner drinks and felt this time our waiter was more involved at other tables than ours - but we will return
Outstanding dinner as usual. Juan, the owner is very welcoming, the severs work like a team, and the food is excellent. Thank you! We will see you again!
The best customer service and food in Cancun. The desserts are the best I have ever had. If you love chocolate you must try the chocolate mousse.
Our favorite in Cancun. Excellent food , attentive staff and charming atmosphere.
La comida deliciosa, así como que el servicio exquisito
We love this restaurant. Great food and wonderful service. The food was delicious and presented well.
Busy but excellent food. Will do it again
Excellent service, excellent food!! I would like this in english
The food was great and the staff couldn’t have been kinder. We had to leave abruptly after ordering the food as our son wasn’t feeling well the staff quickly put our dinners together for us to take. I would definitely go back
Excellent food, service, and the extras that are served! Thank you Juan and staff!
Wonderful. From wine being aerated and decanted at the table, complimentary pate and pizza bread, outstanding service including crumbing, great foof, just a top rated experience
The food was very good as usual. Love the hog fish special. Excellent framchesca and Caesar salads. Enjoyable experience although the service seemed a bit confused.
What can you say. Fantastic as usual. Great food, cozy and terrific service.
Well worth the trip down town
Couldn't ask for a better meal
I’m so glad we chose to come here, the food and service was amazing. Would definitely come back
We have enjoyed La Dolce Vita for many, many years during our winter Cancun vacations. It's always excellent -- wonderful food, high quality customer service, dining elegance and fine service. Bravo, Juan and staff and thank you.
Greeted promptly, great table, friendly staff and great meal!
Always a little more than you expect or pay for!
The atmosphere, ambiance and special menu attention given to me regarding my Celiac sensitivity by all of the retaurant's personnel was very comforting. The food was great and they reassured me with each food item brought to the table that it was gluten free. Such attention to my dietary concerns I have not had at any other restaurant. I thank La Dolce Vita for making this such a positive memorable experience. I have to add that my husband said the regular menu item's he ordered were great and he would defintely return again. Thanks to all of you at La Dolce Vita!
La Dolce Vita never disappoints. Impeccable food, service, value and atmosphere. International and local clientèle makes for a welcoming experience for travelers.
Always great food and service. Every year we dine more than once here!
Very good place, we have been having lunch here for years and its always fantastic. Keep the great work guys.
A dining experience that is second to none. Exquisitely prepared food from fresh ingredients, wonderful ambience, and "world class" service. Our first visit was so enjoyable that we returned a few days later for more. Absolutely the best Italian restaurant in Cancun. Surprisingly, prices are quite reasonable (middle of the pack). We will definitely return on our next trip to Mexico.
Muy buena atención y servicio por parte de todo el equipo. Muy recomendable. Felicidades!!
Enjoyed it. Small, cozy place. Service was great and all courses were delicious.
Ristorante definito italiano ma rovina il nome e la cucina italiana pizza e pasta immangiabili, dal sapore disgustoso, polpo in insalata con vegetali acidi, aperol sprizze imbevibile, sul conto onesti mi hanno tolto la pasta perché non l’avevo toccata, mi hanno offerto n. 3 bucce di arancia candita con cioccolata fondente unica cosa che ho assaggiato per 40 dollari. Da esiliare dai ristoranti italiani. Franco De Angelis
On vacation with family. Have been here several times and always feel so well taken care of! Excellent, attentive service, delicious food and a warm and cozy ambiance!!!!
Fantastic restaurant. The service was to notch, miguel was great he was knowledgable about the menu and drink selection and we felt like he was our personal waiter as everytime we needed something he was right there.
We ordered the pizza seafood and got food sickness
La Dolce Vita provides an excellent meal and stellar service every time. From welcome greeting to departure and everything in between is first class. Delicious food with fantastic original Italian recipes.
