Friendly and welcoming. Also it is air conditioned. A well run place to indulge in fine Italian food. Moderately priced so you won’t break the bank here. Pleasant surroundings and cheerful staff. A must to visit if in Placencia.

We really enjoyed La Dolce Vita. It is a quaint restaurant with authentic Italian food. I enjoyed the fish and my husband had delicious gnocchi in a meat sauce. The melon and prosciutto appetizer was good too. We also liked the house wine.

Bottomline: not bad! Huge portions of tasty and creative pasta. Reasonable prices. My only complaint is that a table of six local VIPs came in and the rest of us were pretty much ignored.

This was very good Italian, bit pricey, there was only one waiter and the place was really busy but the food was good. No pizza but good pasta options. Worth a try.

I went to Placencia with my friend and she insisted that we get a reservation at La Dolce Vita and I really didn't understand. I do now. This is some of the best Italian I've had anywhere. It's located in a simple setting with great...More
