La Dolce Vita is now back in business in their same location at Eastern Shore Centre. Now under new ownership and management they are pleased to continue to offer guests an authentic taste of Italy.
Barrett Thompson, a Mobile native, joined the operation not long after the restaurant initially opened, as a server, and has since moved into management. Chef Alesandro hails from Marche, Italy and presents an array of classic dishes that transport your tastebuds in a celebration of his Italian heritage through food, wine and culture.
Homemade pasta is featured in classic dishes such as spaghetti, linguine, fettuccine, gnocchi, ravioli, lasagna and risotto. You may also order a piccata, marsala, cacciatore or parmigiana with your choice of chicken or veal. There are a variety of antipasto/appetizer and salads available.
Gourmet pizzas are a popular choice and several combinations are highlighted on the menu. You can also choose the “build your own” option and design one to your liking. The chef’s creativity is on display daily with featured specials that utilize seafood and other seasonal ingredients. La Dolce Vita is also kid friendly with a special menu for patrons under the age of 10.
Top off your meal with one of their homemade desserts and coffee. They offer tiramisu, panna cotta, a Nutella calzone and cannoli.
