Just to clear up all the confusion; La Dolce Vita is now Savio’s. I believe it is called Savio’s Bistro by La Dolce Vita. They are now located on the north side of the hotel zone next to the Be Live Grand Caribbean Resort. They have actually been there for a while now along with other Cancun dining. I heard the son took the restaurant from the dad, renamed it and moved it after the hurricane.
Any way, if you are looking for that same great Italian seafood in a Cancun dining experience, Savio’s is still as good as ever. We had not been there for about two years and agree the quality has not suffered at all since the transfer.
Let me tell you, we had the escargot and red snapper. The fish is always fresh and they use interesting spices and flavors to give the food a unique flavor. If you prefer they also have a range of meat plates as well as a variety of soups and salads. The seafood soup, so big it could be its own meal, is a tomato and saffron based, stuffed full of little bites of scallops, shrimp and squid. The meal portions are very generous. Compared to other Cancun dining the $20 to $30US per entree is well worth it.
The atmosphere has a rustic but cosy feel over-looking the lagoon. If your lucky you might get to see the visit from their crocodile friend who waits a the base of the restaurant for a chicken feeding. I highly suggest taking your Cancun dining experience to Savio’s.
