Route de l'Espérance, Grand-Case 97150, St Martin
I was skeptical at first: a good Italian restaurant in Anguilla? But there was no need to be because Dolce VIta is excellent. The chef even challenged me to find better gnocchi in Italy, and I think I'd be hard-pressed to do so. In addition to the...
