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.

Christmas Dinner at our favorite restaurant in Cancun! Authentic Italian 15 minute cab ride from the hotel zone! Lovely quail pate complimentary. Excellent spaghetti carbonara and linguine in clam sauce (ask for extra garlic - it’s amazing!

A place mostly for locals, but is great. The food is outstanding! I had a wonderful dinner, no waiting times, friendly waiters and fair prices, if you are in downtown, take some time to try them.

La Dolce Vita is absolutely a must when in Cancun. A menu for all tastes. My favorite happens to be the Calamari steak-out of this world!!
The menu is just the beginning, the service, cocktails, and desserts are also key components to their best in class experience.
The proprietor Juan Jose checked with our table throughout to be sure we were having a wonderful experience.

I'm beyond grateful. The service here is excellent. We were looking for a nice place to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we came here. The establishment is very clean and they follow COVID19 protocol very strictly. We felt very comfortable and safe. The staff is very friendly and we were greeted by the owner, Juan Jose, who was a perfect gentleman. Everything we ate was delicious all the way through dessert. We were treated like royalty. Every detail of the meal and service was well thought out. Thank you. We will be back! Our new favorite spot in Cancun.

We found this hidden gem near our Airbnb rental off Bomapak Ave, and could not have been more pleased! We dined at La Dolce Vita twice during our 10-day visit to Cancun and had Italian food that was some of the best we've ever eaten. Definitely worth a visit. Top-notch service as well!
