Our Restaurant

Behind Dolce Vita are the combined experience and talents of Abbi Ibrahim and Christopher Bacchiega. They met while working together in a Michelin starred restaurant in Mantova, Italy.

Your humble host, Abbi Ibrahim, is an experienced International restaurateur and a certified Sommelier whose focus for many years has been Italian restaurants. He partnered with Italian-born chef Christopher Bacchiega, whose direct background gives him a leg up on his natural talents with Italian food.

Together, their years in Anguilla have them obtaining for their guests the best and freshest local seafood. Combine that detail with their homemade pastas and you have a perfect blend for Italian cuisine standards. Dolce Vita has also been awarded a Best Restaurant title by the Anguilla Tourist Board.

Their genuine hospitality and proven teamwork is apparent and translates into a wonderful, Italian dining experience on one of the Caribbean’s most special islands, Anguilla… Perfetto!
