La Dolce Vita is our favorite restaurant in Cancun. We visit every time we are here. The food, service and ambiance are outstanding. Definitely worth the taxi ride. We love the new remodel, looks beautiful.

The food is much better than most of the hotel zone restaurants. There’s genuine care for the guests and it’s not a tourist trap. The beef carpaccio with truffles is outstanding, as were many of the pasta dishes. Desserts were ok. The bread in the bread baskets was warmed over and not freshly baked. Service was efficient and kind. We enjoyed our dinner, although the other location in the mall is newer, fresher and a bit better.

Outstanding ambience, amazing service every time we dine here. Food was delicious with the exception of our Caesar salads. We were warned they were different, and they were. Placing them on ice made them difficult to eat and took away from the flavor. Other than that…wonderful experience. Most beautiful restaurant we dine at in Cancun. Thank you!

Everything was fantastic! Service was impeccable! Drinks were divine! Unfortunately the food was subpar. Alfredo was cold, pesto was meh, the starters were not very flavorful. The desert was fantastic though. Service was 6stars for sure. I think the food just needs a little upgrade in terms of value. Kids pasta was still hard. The Alfredo was served with a show which was cool. Just the giant cheese wheel is really cool and tasty.
