About
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

From the moment we walked in, the service was second to none! We were greeted at the door. The customer service continued throughout the night and was exceptional. The food was incredible also.

La Dolce Vita does a magnificent job of providing a warm, welcoming atmosphere where total strangers are made to feel like family. It's also quiet, so you won't be submerged in a throng of mindless Instagramming kids, having your eardrums burst by bad dance music....It's a wonderful old-fashioned restaurant. On the down side, the traditional Italian food is merely okay. They might want to tighten up some of the recipes.More

We have eaten here every year for almost a decade, and each visit has been phenomenal. This year was no exception. Our group had 6 different pastas, and each one was flavorful, perfectly cooked, and satisfying. The special touches, like the on-the-house night cap at...the end of the meal, made our night extra special. We look forward to our visit next year!More
