Dolce Vita Gelato and Espresso
Boasting a culinary background flavored with classic American and Cajun cuisines, La Dolce Vita owner and chef Benard Tamburello melds Italian and Sicilian influences to craft a spread seasoned with fresh herbs. With select ingredients culled straight from Italy, La Dolce Vita's meal components fuse to form a flavorful union as they trade tales of riding tiny ponies through the fields of San Marzano, Parma, and Tuscany. For dinner, pacify grumbling bellies with heaping helpings of baked eggplant parmigana ($14), or bowl forkfuls of tenderloin-fillet meatballs down alleys of house-made linguini into metaphorical hunger pins ($18). All entrees can be split amongst the group ($10 charge), and a children's menu sates ankle-biting appetites with pintsize, kid-friendly plates ($5–$6). Midday munchers can indulge in lunch selections such as paninis grilled to piping perfection with tuscan chicken, tilapia, and italian sausage ($7.95 each), or brandish spherical scalpels when extracting a slice of a spinach-and-prosciutto pizza ($7.95).
