We wanted a nice dinner and we found it. The service was amazing. Everyone's food was very good. Homemade pasta for most dishes. We ordered a salad to split three ways. The setting is in the court yard where there are 4 other restaurants. Some of them have music different nights.

We were craving pasta and found this open air Authentic Italian restaurant in the complex near our condo. I had lasagna and my husband had fettuccine with ham and mushrooms. Both dishes had homemade pasta noodles and it was delicious. Service was excellent and don't skip the chocolate lava cake!!

Great food, great service, great atmosphere!! We have eaten there twice and we thoroughly enjoyed out dinners both times. Will go back again before we leave. Seafood soup was wonderful and the pizza was very good. Highly recommend while in Coco.

This place is hidden away in the corner of this little plaza, away from the main streets in town, but well worth finding. We enjoyed a couple of very good pizzas and some seafood spaghetti (home made). They have locally made craft beers, which are worth a try. Service was very good, and the food was excellent. Really tasty and... More

We enjoyed our dinner at La Dolce Vita last night. The food was tasty, we had gluten free spaghetti with fresh tuna, caper and evoo (delicious), grilled fresh snapper & mixed salad. Those in our group who can eat gluten enjoyed a large portion of lasagna which they pronounced to be very good...and they devoured it. The live music (guitar,... More

We ate here one night when we found that another restaurant was closed. It turned out to be a good choice. The service and food were both very good. The ambiance and setting were pleasant. It would be a good choice for a romantic dinner.

We really enjoyed the service and the menu. The owners were kind and came to the table to see if our family enjoyed the mean. I loved the pasta and meatball platter. They also have a very good selection of wine which made us very happy. We highly recommend.

My boyfriend and I ate here on our second to last night in the area and it was the perfect romantic setting. We arrived for an early 5:30pm dinner and as the sun continued to go down the outdoor seating area turned into a magical, romantic courtyard. The service was excellent and the food was great! I was disappointed not... More
