Food was good and prices were reasonable.
They have new very cute artwork painted on the walls now as well. You can eat inside or outside in a quiet courtyard.

Accessibility:
Reasonably accessible for handicapped people
We found a spot to park that was about 800 steps from the restaurant. We did have to go up/down a couple curbs and cross the street then up a bit of a driveway but once into the courtyard there was a path that did not require stairs.

We will go there again. We love Italian food
And appreciate the relative ease of accessibility.

The absolute best food we had during our month. The homemade pasta and sauce in the seafood pasta was so good I ordered just the pasta and sauce as a side dish the 5 other times we visited! The seafood pasta was just amazing. I have never like clams or muscles but was drawn to this dish for some reason and so glad I ordered it. Absolutely delicious and the clams and muscles and shrimp were cooked to perfection. I also had the ravioli and the steak with Gorgonzola and the pizza - all amazing! The restaurant is run by two brothers and their mother from Italy. Mom makes the dishes and the brothers run the front. They were always kind and attentive. We HIGHLY recommend this restaurant!

In a quiet, beautiful setting La Dolce Vita offers quality food that will not disappoint. The pizza is only second to Italian pizza in Pompeii. The owners Giacomo and Stefano are Italian brothers that have mastered Italian cuisine in Costa Rica. I can’t forget to mention the best waitress in the world, Elisa:)
Excellent food, location and staff that always make you feel welcome!
