What to order at Dolce Italian: 

Dolce Mule

A twist on the classic Moscow Mule, Dolce steps up their Vodka and ginger beer with muddled strawberries and jalapeños. Don’t stray from this tasty concoction! It has a hint of sweetness but not overly sugary and the spice from the jalapeño wholeheartedly enhances the taste of the fizzy ginger beer.

Beef Carpaccio

A daring menu addition, but it is worth taking a chance on this dish. Thinly sliced beef is topped with a dainty mix of arugula, shaved Parmesan, croutons, mushrooms and a light Truffle dressing. We have never heard the term “light Truffle” before since it’s a distinctly rich food, but the combination of all ingredients together was a great mix of flavors and textures.

Lobster Mezzalune

This beautifully plated “primi” of half-moon shaped pasta is the ideal portion with a subtle savory decadence. Each pasta is handmade, stuffed with lobster and cooked al dente. The plate is decorated with more bits of lobster, artichokes and lobster sauce. A must order.

Veal Piccata

If you’re in the mood for a rich and saucy entrée, that’s exactly what you will get with one of Dolce’s veal dishes. The veal is coated with an Italian gravy, a layer of cheese and thinly sliced eggplant. The most surprising stand-out of this dish is the side of homemade buttered noodles, they are so rich and creamy you may mistake the flavor for mac and cheese!

Filet

For a traditional Italian restaurant, the filet was exceedingly delicious. Cooked medium rare it will satiate your appetite for steak. The side of homemade pasta infused with spinach mixed with mushrooms is a newfound favorite!

Profiteroles stuffed with chocolate mousse

This dessert is everything you want- chocolaty, chewy, pretty and nutty. It’s hard to share but we suggest you should. The 3 puffs filled with chocolate are served with a scoop of hazelnut ice cream that makes you feel like you’re in the middle of Italy!

Layered puff pastry with whipped cream and berries

There is nothing not to like about this dessert. It resembles a deconstructed breakfast biscuit and does not taste too far off! This is what you need to order to snag a gorgeous Instagram pic 🙂
