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

We never miss a visit to La Dolce Vita when we travel to Cancun. The owner and staff are always friendly and appreciative of our return visits. They say “welcome home” every year. We love spaghetti carbonara and linguine with clam sauce with extra garlic....We absolutely love the Caesar salad and amuse bouche of pate and toasted bread.More

Eight of us got a taxi and had a great meal with wonderful service. I had the lobster bisque and it was the red. Very good. I actually like the white or cream better. I had the pork shoulder and wow. It was simply fall...off the bone and excellent. Being a larger group we got some nice breads, and an after dinner drink included. The owner came out and thanked us for coming especially with all the COVID restrictions. Between the 8 of us we probably spent $4 to $5 hundred dollars. We had a great time and had wonderful food.More

We visit Cancun every year and always dine here. Such good service & great food. Large wine list & many beers to choose from. Many Italian entrees and seafood entries. The Boquinete Dolce Vida is snapper stuffed with shrimp & mushrooms in a puff pastry...served with lobster sauce. Such a unique dish and absolutely delicious. If you haven’t tried this restaurant, you’re really missing out.More

My stepmom comes here every year when she goes to her timeshare in Cancun. I went last evening with my dad and stepmom and was very impressed. Having lived a very blessed life I was utterly thrilled to find service as good as New York...or Dubai in Cancun. They remembered my stepmoms allergies without asking... she hadnt even been there in a year and they still remembered! The food is delicious, I ordered the seafood pasta, homemade pasta and perfectly cooked seafood. My dad got osso bucco and it was falling off the bone. The wine they recommended was also so so good, and we got a second bottle! Go there if you get the chance, well worth the money!More

Thank you to Pancho and to the rest of staff.More

I had been craving Italian for a few weeks. Arrived here, and the space is so charming and comfortable, just a lovely space. This is old-school Italian done right! Very gracious service with some free tastes, too! I ended up dining here alone because my...companion had been sick. I really had a great time with the Prosecco, and all of the exquisite food, hahaha. Had the fantastic shrimp appetizer in a Marsala sauce, it was out of this world. Followed by the ravioli stuffed with ricotta and spinach. Seriously, this may be the best ravioli I’ve ever had and here’s why: the pasta was very light, you could see thru to the spinach, plus, the tomato sauce was also very light as to not cover the delicate flavors of the ricotta and spinach. THIS is how ravioli should be made. I loved it! The breads, the signature pâté were perfect accompaniments to my lovely meal. I’m happy to say I’ll be staying in Cancun for a bit longer and cannot wait to return. Every bite was perfection!More
