The party aboard the Marigalante pirate ship (an authentic Spanish galleon) is a fantastic family-friendly experience.  With live entertainment, games, dancing and dinner below deck, you are sure to have a good time.  Enjoy the fireworks display on deck or even from the malecon when taking an evening stroll downtown.

Best Dining Experience in Puerto Vallarta

Situated along the swirling pebble design of the Malecon, La Dolce Vita Italian Restaurant boasts an amazing view of the walkway and ocean beyond.  The gentle waves will seduce you while you sip wine and eat some of the best food that Puerto Vallarta has to offer.  Pasta, Pizza and Seafood are in abundance and are served up plentiful and fanciful.  

Downstairs is full of young adults out for a great meal before hitting the bars and clubs that line the street with open doors when the sun sets.  But upstairs, you can enjoy the soft setting: romantic and gentle enough to languish the night away.

On three separate occasions, we found ourselves enticed upstairs, romancing, while the soft sounds of the kitchen and Italian music wooed us.  We had travelled to Puerto Vallarta with family members for a two-week stay and each time we sauntered into La Dolce Vita, there they  We had not made plans to dine with them nor them with us. (Only once had we been to La Dolce Vita as a family-party of eight).  I guess we all appreciated the fine food and wines, good company/service and beautiful surroundings.

And if you're lucky, you may just get a spot along the balcony where you can watch the fireworks from the Marigalante pirate ship or the street performers along the Malecon.  A light breeze will kiss your face as you sip, laugh and wish upon stars.

La Dolce Vita celebrated its' 20 year anniversary August 2014 and received the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence 2014 wit ha 4.5 star rating.
