The spaghetti western film genre is noted for its good use of extreme close-ups, its bad use of tomato sauce during gunfights, and its ugly use of Clint Eastwood’s puppetry skills. Get a fistful of western-less spaghetti with today’s Groupon for Italian cuisine from Randy Loren’s Dolce Vita Ristorante in Schenectady. Randy Loren’s Dolce Vita is closed Sundays for private parties and events. Choose from the following options:
- $10 for $20 worth of Italian cuisine from the dinner menu
- $5 for the daily lunch buffet (a $9.99 value)
Randy Loren’s Dolce Vita Ristorante serves up affordable Italian cuisine in a fun, inviting atmosphere. The lunch buffet (available Tuesday through Friday from 11:30 a.m.-2:00 p.m.) offers a revolving door of Dolce Vita favorites to tantalize fickle taste buds. Pizzas, pastas, sliced meats, and salads form a kickline of delicious edibles. Dinner affords diners the opportunity to feast on classic favorites like the 12 oz. Delmonico steak ($21) or chicken dolce vita ($19), a lightly breaded breast sautéed and smothered with cappicola, peppers, olives, and provolone. Prospective paddlers looking to cruise the canals of Venice can indulge in Italian specialties like the baked lasagna with meat ($15), while herbivorous eaters can abandon the beef with a pasta primavera ($15) paired with fresh vegetables in a light white sauce. End the evening with a homemade cannoli ($6) or a palate-pleasing specialty cake ($7). On Friday and Saturday nights, rug-cutters can tap their toes on the dance floor while singers serenade them from the stage.
Randy Loren's Dolce Vita Ristorante
The newly renovated Randy Loren's Dolce Vita Ristorante infuses classic Italian dishes with a love of music that permeates the classic atmosphere. As diners enjoy plates of lightly breaded veal and parmesan-encrusted tilapia, on Fridays and Saturdays performers take to the dining room’s elevated stage to coax melodies from a white grand piano sitting under a disco ball and colorful lights. In addition, trimming decorated like piano keys accentuates the wooden bar, whose array of liquor and wine bottles would produce its own grand symphony if it were ever hit with a bunch of tiny pebbles.
