An early birthday celebration was had at La Dolce Vita last evening. It was such a calming atmosphere and the food was exquisite. Chef Franco Cosentino makes the experience of dining a personal and aesthetic event and visits at your table, with stories and enthusiasm.
I enjoyed a beautiful chicken dish and a salad that was so light and beautiful in perfect olive oil vinaigrette. Everything was seasoned to perfection and there was a generous wine selection.
Conversation was comfortable and amusing and I couldn’t have asked for a more heartwarming event to celebrate my life. Our meal ended with the waiter stepping up and pouring flaming Sambuca over a piece of rich chocolate cake! A red dribble of raspberry sauce on the large white plate was a striking detail as the chocolate seemed to shine in the blue liquid flame. I would highly recommend this restaurant, with its beautiful background music selections and cheerful atmosphere.
