Dolce Riviera is an authentic Italian restaurant that takes a step back in time to la dolce vita, an era attributed to the golden age of cinema and dynamic creativity. This whimsical, far-away feel is delightfully striking upon arrival. A manicured garden patio, reminiscent of a small giardino in Italy, leads guests to the entrance. Canopied by a variety of trees, the garden is adorned with accents, such as stone twin fountains that date back to the 18th century. The menu is reflective of a true modern Italian cuisine executed with the highest degree of attention. Notable entree selections include Pappardelle Al Cacao, a house-made cocoa infused pasta dish, and Costata alla Griglia, a bone-in rib eye grilled to perfection. Complementary aperitifs are crafted from the bar and the wine list features impeccable rarities from the early 1950s, 1970s, and 1990s.
