Reviewed 2 weeks ago

It was Valentine's evening so we decided to go upscale & dine at Dolce Vida. We had 1 of our favorite waiters from La Catalina(God we miss that place!!) & he is wonderful. The wine we ordered they were out of, & he was helpful in selecting another 1. We liked our meals, no complaints. Over the top, no. An enjoyable evening out, yes!!

I have mixed feeling about this restaurant.
I usually order take out about 3 times per month.
Food is usually good, needless to say given how often I visit.
My frustrations are the following:
There is no consistency, every time my wife orders Risotto you never know if you will get shrimps with a tail or without, will it be white or red (like a paella).
There is a great need of training and consistency on the food prep as well as some kind of supervisor presence. I have had a couple problems and is pretty notorious the people there are not trained to run a restaurant. The are usually nice but don't have a clue how to deal with a dissatisfied customer.

Driving from Las Terrenas to Puerto Plata we found this place near Cabrera. A bit of a shock as we did not expect to find anything like it until hitting another mayor town. Excellent pizza and Calamaria (Fried squids) Very clean, fairly elegant. Food was very good and portions generous, reasonably priced. Service was excellent.Certainly a pleasant surprise during our "expedition" in the Republic. A bit retired, when we went was empty! but quiet and enjoyable. Keep it in mind if in the area. Great souvenirs just next door!

Food and service are great. Very good pizza. Make sure you try the Cordon Bleu chicken and traditional tostones.

The food was very good, the service was great, really enjoyed it. Unfortunately it is right on the main street and can be a little noisy at times, but don't let that deter you from an otherwise nice experience.
