Dolce Vita, or the good life, is what the restaurant provides in serving you quality Italian food without the "foo fa" to go with it.
At a recent visit, I decided to go with their four course tasting set ($138), which mind you, despite having the word "tasting" in it, is rather filling. The good thing about this menu is that one can pick the items that one really want to try.
The meal starter with an amuse bouche of green pea puree, with the first course being the veal cutlet. Light done medium it was a tasty way to start the meal.
For my pasta I had the duck ragout fusilli which while just a starter portion was rather filling.
Better though was the mushroom risotto that came with black truffles and very tender large pieces of quail. Rich in flavour indeed.
For my main course I selected the Tuscan Seafood Soup which had cod, prawn, lobster, Alaskan King Crab leg and a large Hokkaido scallop cooked in a rich shellfish broth. Served with some crispy bread, could be a meal in itself.
Finally for dessert I had the Tiramisu, strong coffee powder in thick mascarpone cheese with sponge cake soaked in liquour.
A lighter option would be to go for the orange sorbet after that heavy meal.
Overall, expect good hearty cooking with friendly family like service to go along with that. To top it off, there is also a 15% off for American Express cardholders.
