Italian cuisine, like all Renaissance inventions, was created by Galileo, but only after he chipped a tooth trying to eat a telescope. Safely sink your teeth into astronomically delicious matter with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Italian cuisine, wine, and beer at La Dolce Vita Ristorante in La Jolla.

The menu at La Dolce Vita Ristorante is filled with Sicilian cuisine that glows under warm indoor lighting and sparkles on an outdoor patio reminiscent of an eatery on Italy's most famous island. Succor weary taste buds with a flavorful entree of ravioli di mare, splashed with pink-champagne cream sauce and accompanied by baby shrimp and scallops ($17.95). The succulent pollo alla parmigiana ($17.95) infuses palates with flavor, and the bistecca alla griglia's colossal grilled 18-ounce T-bone steak ($26.95), which is reinforced with sautéed spinach and potatoes, sates carnivorous cravings the way a semester of straight As mollifies worried juvenile parole officers. Augment a wholesome main dish with a cold Peroni beer or stateside Samuel Adams ($4.95 each).


CityVoters give La Dolce Vita Ristorante an average of five stars, and Yelpers give it 3.5. Nine TripAdvisors give it a four owl-eye average.

La Dolce Vita Ristorante

After childhood games of barefoot street soccer in the Sicilian town of Raddusa, Enzo Castiglione came home to Sicilian food crafted from his family’s traditional recipes. As an adult, he now serves the same cuisine at his Italian eatery, La Dolce Vita Ristorante. Named after one of his hometown’s coffee shops, the restaurant has earned praise in papers such as La Jolla Cuisine and La Jolla Village News for its authentic pastas, pizzas, and seafood, as well as its intimate dining room. White lights wind their way around the trunks of potted trees, illuminating nearby plates of house-made gnocchi, grilled Black Angus ribeye steak, and pizzas topped with calamari, Italian sausage, or simple mozzarella and basil. To start, diners can whet their appetites with a Caprese salad or a bruschetta, rather than the traditional Italian starter of a closed pizza box to stare at longingly. To complement their meal’s flavors, diners can select a wine from the eatery’s wide-ranging list, which ranges from pinot grigio to chianti.
