Rome wasn’t built in a day, largely because all able bodies were busy with that year's labor-intensive spaghetti harvest. Sample well-wrought fare with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of authentic Italian dinner cuisine at DolceVino in Miami Beach.
The culinary wizards at DolceVino, nestled away in the Mediterranean-inspired Claridge Hotel, conjure up a dinner menu filled with hearty, old-world Italian fare. Diners can pledge allegiance to pasta’s arch-nemesis, antipasti, with dishes such as caprese salad ($12) or the antipasto all’italiana with its cornucopia of cold cuts and cheese ($15). Pro-pasta forks, on the other hand, can twirl among the tendrils of the linguine prosciutto e fondue, which combines asparagus and prosciutto with linguine noodles in a parmesan fondue sauce ($16). Meanwhile, the pistachio-encrusted sea bass ($28) lets diners sample the flavors of the Mediterranean without having to pilfer a mermaid’s lunch pail. Indulge sweet teeth with selections from the dessert menu, which includes a delightfully dulcet tiramisu ($7). Dinner is served daily from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.
