This little gem is hidden off the main drag, but it is worth every penny. We stayed in the condo's nearby and eyed it on our last night in coco and wish we had seen it sooner. My boyfriend's g'ma is from Northern Italy and he LOVES her cooking and even admitted that the food here rivaled hers.

The food deliciously fresh, but the service is what made us fall in love with this family business. Come only if you want a gastronomic spoiling experience. Loved it, loved it!!!!!!!!!!!

My boyfriend and I found this little spot tucked away near coco beach not knowing what to expect as there are many Italian restaurants in Costa Rica. Anyone who has been knows the food here can be so-so but even by an Italian standard it was amazing. Fresh food and homemade pasta/other ingredients, amazing service. The menu has a great... More

Really good and tasty pizza. We didn't like that we had a thousand flies who wanted to have some of our pizza.

I enjoyed our evening here at La Dolce Vita. The authentic Italiano food was excellent as was the wine selection. It's a charming little spot in an Italian shopping district. Very intimate but casual spot. I look forward to returning to this family-owned restaurant!
