Los Cabos, for whatever reason, has become a mecca for Italian chefs, restaurants, and devotees. Mediterranean restaurants abound, and yet the diversity of these spots prevents the scene from ever becoming rote. With La Dolce, Stefan Miotto and Juan Calderoni welcome guests to the flavors of northern Italy—and, by extension—France and Austria. Think more butter and less olive oil. At La Dolce, you can expect rich sauces, more beef, and homemade pastas. There’s a lot to choose from on this menu. Start with antipasti like thinly sliced fish carpaccio in La Dolce’s secret sauce or trifolati misto (shrimp and calamari sautéed with garlic, capers, red pepper, and white wine with Pomodoro). The lasagna is made with Bolognese sauce and a béchamel with mozzarella and Parmesan. La Dolce also serves an excellent beef tenderloin with Gorgonzola and mushroom sauce. You can’t leave without trying the tiramisu. Cabo San Lucas: Miguel Hidalgo and Zapatas, (624) 143-4122, www .restauranteladolce.com. Nightly 5 p.m.–midnight.
