Dolce Italian to Open Friday
January 15, 2013 | by —LIANA LOZADA | Homepage
This Friday brings the opening of Dolce Italian, a new eatery by LDV Hospitality at the recently renovated Gale South Beach. Dolce will serve polished Italian cuisine crafted by executive chef Paolo Dorigato, who has worked in the kitchens of some of New York’s most iconic restaurants (The Rainbow Room, Cipriani Wall Street). Sample dishes range from made-to-order mozzarella to roasted red snapper and clams to short rib cannelloni with porcini cream. The simple but delicious spaghetti al pomodoro is a specialty and pizzas are fired in a wood-burning oven. However, the absolute must-try dish is—without question—the tartufata, a blend of mozzarella, fontina, and robiola truffle cheese. Environs are sleek yet cozy, with bronze-colored banquettes and wood paneled walls. Choose to dine on the first or second floor dining room, or go alfresco on the terrace. An adjacent lobby café is perfect for grabbing an espresso or meal on the go. 1690 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 786-975-2250
