La Dolce Ristorante Italiano – LCM 43 Spring 2016

La Dolce_12nov2015_AO_01_1Buckle your seatbelts. You’re in for an exciting culinary adventure through Northern Italy. In fact, there are so many dishes on La Dolce’s menu that you might be tempted to stop and ask for directions. And that’s OK. When we’re stuck between the antipasti and pasta, pesce e gamberoni and pizza, we sometimes just take a breath to see what others are ordering. Flavors float to you, and with clarity you know that that is what you want. Starters include various takes on bruschetta, but I’m especially impressed with the one with smoked salmon on garlic bread. There is also a must-try Caprese salad. Follow it with house-made pastas like lasagna or ravioli, which will transport you directly to Italy. Pizza selections include the usual faves and some surprises; try one with chicken and pine nuts. Miguel Hidalgo and Zapatas, Cabo San Lucas, (624) 143-4122, Nightly 5 p.m.–midnight.
